Comment 1 Aravind G 2016-08-25 15:25:03 UTC
Created attachment 127026 [details]
Check the  1st column "Date" changes to "ateD" on file opened again after closing. etc

In attached file,
1. See first column "Date" changed to "ateD".
2. see second column "temp" cannot be properly centered horizontally. space is wasted in the column.
3. See third column "Insect" changed to "tInsec".

If we change the 1st and 3rd column width, the words changes to original. 

Then Change column width to original
Save File and 
close the file.

Again On file open same problem persists(writer cannot save what it has to save).

What is your version of LibreOffice (menu Help > About LibreOffice) ?
What is your distribution ?

Iam using Kubuntu 16.04.1 with the default LibreOffice . The system is updated.
This bug is there in the previous versions also.

Reproducible with LO 5.2.0 from PPA Ubuntu 16.04 (x86-64).

I defined a paragraph style "Vertical Table Header" and got the same issue. 
It seems that the issue occurs only if text rotation is 90°, not if it is 270°.

Set status to NEW.

I have the same behaviour here in my documents. But I didn't take a look on it the last versions.

its an annoying bug.
It forces the user to check and then correct all the affected columns every time he opens the file.
If it isn't corrected , print will also be spoiled.

Original issue ("Date" changed to "ateD" and "Insect" changed to "tInsec") from ODT repro also in Win. 
No repro 7.0+. So I'll close as WFM. 
Reverse bibisect would uncover the fix. Maybe Miklos's work.

I still see ""temp" cannot be properly centered horizontally" issue (also see when word selected) but that would be yet another bug, if worth reporting.
