Description Chrisbath 2018-02-17 14:15:24 UTC
I suggest to standardize the "automatic" "increment"* (increase and decrease) of boxes allowing to define height, width, top, bottom, left, right...
When click on button increase or button decrease, the "increments" can be 1 cm, 0.5 cm, 0.1 cm even 0.01 cm!!!

I hope that release 6 adjusts all theses "automatic" "increments" to 0.1 cm.

It is very disturbing to click and to obtain a so big variety of values!

* I am not sure that "increment" is the good word for "incrément" (in french).
Thanks you and excuse me please for my poor english.

Left, right, top, bottom are properties of padding in the paragraph settings dialog with a (proper) increase of 0.1cm for the numerical steppers. 

Please be more specific on what dialog exactly you think the steppers should change differently.

Not exhaustive analysis of "incréments" supplied by "steppers"

In answer to the last comment, here is a not exhaustive analysis of values of "incréments" supplied by "steppers".
I did not explore "Impress Presentation" but I suppose that the same disparities also exist.
Thanks for all.

Great overview. Would prefer single tickets for every issue and this could be the meta ticket. But that's up to the QA folks.

Issues are easy to solve for beginners, example is https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/43964/ for bug 67670. We carefully choose 0.5cm there (column gutter) which converts to 0.19685 inches (the actual value depends on Tools > Options > Writer > General).

Summarizing, I'm not so sure that harmonizing is the best solution but 0.01cm is definitely bad as well as 1cm.

So, Chrisbath: you can create a separate report for each issue and enter 115805 into the "Blocks" field every time.

Use this link when you create them: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=LibreOffice

Click "Show Advanced Fields" so you can see the "Blocks" field (near the bottom).
