Description Marco Gaiarin 2017-04-07 08:42:40 UTC
Created attachment 132392 [details]

Attached a OpenDocument Spreadsheet document created with Calc, that behave strangely on LO 5.2 when printed (preview or print) or converted to PDF (test conversion attached).

As you can see, raw 9 and 41 look correctly on file, but print wrong.
Seems not a simple matter of cell dimension/spacing.

Also, i've tried to open the file with LO 5.1 (, Ubuntu) and behave correctly, correctly displaying in program and in print/preview/pdf.

Hello Marco,

Thank you for reporting the bug.

I can't reproduce it in
Build ID: 1:5.3.2~rc2-0ubuntu1~yakkety0
CPU Threads: 4; OS Version: Linux 4.8; UI Render: default; VCL: gtk3; Layout Engine: new; 
Locale: es-ES (ca_ES.UTF-8); Calc: group

Could you please try to reproduce it with 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.

Sorry, i was busy on other things, and i've not found the time to test LO 'fresh' (5.3).

But i've just upgrade to LO 5.2.7, and the bug desappeared!

I've tried to look at:

but i've found nothing relevant (at least for me).

Anyway, thanks.
