Description Dirk Munk 2017-09-28 10:08:47 UTC
I set up a new page with a very large size, 126cm x 70cm in landscape mode. When I started typing, every character appeared on a new line, as if the right margin had been reached. After I reduced the width from 126cm to 125cm, everything worked fine. As far as I'm aware Writer should be able to handle pages of 300cm X 300cm, but clearly there is a problem with very large pages. Perhaps an integer overflow, setting the sign to negative? That's what I can imagine.

I could confirm this bug with LO

I choosed Landscape (width 126cm; height 70cm; default margins) and could only type with a width of 6cm. I changed to 125cm and the width of the text was reduced to 5 cm. Everything was fine with 119 cm. So it is al little different to the original bug report.

I used margins of 5cm, that can explain the differences.

The problem still exists.

present version: Version: (x64)

I made a new document, 126 x 70 cm (landscape), with 5 cm margins all around.
After typing 2 or 3 characters the cursor jumps to a new line.

Dirk, sorry you're right! I also still can confirm that problem

Still reproducible in

It depends of how big is margin. I set all margin to 0 cm and the line wrapping is with 115,60 cm. With 115.59 cm it works ok. When I set only left margin to 5 cm, then it works ok with 120.59 cm and bad working with 120.60 cm. (the 5 cm more). When I set also right margin, then it is more by the margin size.
