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.

Reproducible also in
LibreOffice 3.3.0

1. Open new writer document
2. Format -> Page Style -> Page -> Landscape | width 126cm | height 70cm | text magin 2cm -> OK
3. Try to type a line of text

Actual result
Maximum text width is 6cm

Expected result
You should type within the whole text area

Additional information
Change page width to 119cm and it works (115,59 cm as maximum text area; see comment 7)
