Description Robert Nemet 2017-03-07 12:14:00 UTC
I have a table ( for example 4 x 4 ) and inside one of table cells as cell content I have section. If there is a lot of text, large content, in the section: row containing this section goes on next page. If content of section can not fit page then content is cut, section does not expand on next page.

Expected: Section and table is extended to next page so whole section content is visible.

OS: Win7
LibreOffice Version:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create table
2.Insert some text in any table cell and wrap it in section 
3.Add a lot of text to that section.

Actual Results:  
Content in section is cut. Section do not span on next page.

Expected Results:
Section and table is extended to next page so whole section content is visible.

Reproducible: Always

I can confirm the problem. Even if a footer was added with text, the table is continuing over the footer and the page margin and even inbetween the pages..
Obviously a bug..

Tested follwing with Libreoffice:
Build ID: 7074905676c47b82bbcfbea1aeefc84afe1c50e1
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Windows 6.2; UI Render: default; Layout Engine: new; 
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group

Aside the document is valid ODF 1.2 (aside the usual proprietary application attributes).

I don't think this issue and tdf#131696 are duplicates, even though they look similar. In this case, the table cell contains a section, without any attributes like "Allow table split across pages and columns" and "Allow row break across pages and columns" being set for the table.

on Linux, can reproduce the layout bug on every version all the way back to OOo 3.0.1
=> not a regression
