Description Jeff Fortin Tam 2016-12-03 05:15:04 UTC
In Fedora 25, whether on X or Wayland, with the GTK3 version of LibreOffice, if you start your LOo app maximized, once you demaximize it it will become minuscule (something like 400x200 pixels) instead of using the last saved size.

In contrast, if you start the app with a non-maximized window, when you maximize and unmaximize it it will retain its previous size.

Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

I'm still reproducing this on Fedora 31 with the build.

I think the other sub-bug here is that LibreOffice lets me resize the window to a size smaller than the UI elements.

I think this bug describes the behaviour on https://askubuntu.com/questions/1274365/windows-of-an-application-have-minimum-size-and-i-cant-find-the-window-anymore

We have noticed that with several of our students on Ubuntu 20.04 with LO
