Description Andrey 2016-12-10 17:01:05 UTC
Description:
When trying to change Writer window height window stops shrinking at approx 4/5 of it's fullscreen size. This wasn't a case with at least 5.1.4 release.
The problem remains the same with new or any existing documents both when start resizing from the top or bottom side of the window. 
The problem doesn't appear when changing window width. The problem doesn't appear with Calc or Impress. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open new window in Writer or open any of existing documents
2. Press window free-size button to change from fullscreen mode
3. Put mouse pointer to top of the window until it changes to window-resize type (two headed arrow). Press mouse button and try to change window height to as little as possible.

Actual Results:  
Window resize stops at approx 4/5 of full-screen 

Expected Results:
Shrink the window at least in half.


Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I cannot reproduce this with 5.3.0.0beta1 using Windows 10.
Can you test this with a newer version than 5.2.3.3?

I've tried it with 5.3.0.0 beta using Windows 7, the problem remains. 

The mark where resizing stops is not constant. Sometimes it stops a bit higher, sometimes a bit lower, but anyway aroung 3/4 of full height.

BTW, 5.3.0.0 beta menu is also buggy. When mouse pointer is being put over one of menu items and then moved to another one, all of them turn into black rectangles.

I don't reproduce this issue using LibO 5.2.3.3 under Win7 x64
did you try resetting the user profile?

To be certain the reported issue is not related to corruption in the user profile, could you please reset your Libreoffice profile ( https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile ) and re-test?

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the issue is still present
Comment 5 Andrey 2016-12-13 09:01:20 UTC
Thank you for your advise.

I've performed a complete user's profile reset according to https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile#Resolving_corruption_in_the_user_profile .

Now the situation is as following: if I start with LO shell and go to Writer by opening an .odt file, the problem persists. If I start by directly executing LO Writer application, everything's fine. The situation is the same with 5.3 and 5.2 versions. 

I'm not completely sure but I suppose it has nothing to do with user's profile reset.

No problem here.

Hi,

I can reproduce the problem same as comment 5.

In addition, it occurs after I upgraded LibreOffice 5.1.2.2(x86) to 5.3.1.2(x64) in my PC (Win10 Pro x64).
Resetting the user profile has no effect.

Version: 5.3.1.2 (x64)

Comment 10 stayg_22 2017-03-19 07:42:59 UTC
I notice the main window of LibreOffice cannot be resized smaller than about 600 pixels in height when it opens no documents.
The resizing limit seems to be remained wrongly after "no documents" state.

It can be reproduced:
 1. Start LibreOffice Writer.
 2. Close the untitled document.
 3. Open any document.
 4. Resizing the window is restricted.

I hope this will help.
