Description Libu 2018-02-26 12:37:55 UTC
DOTTED LINE I want dots to be exactly 1 cm appart - like a grid - but I can see it is slightly bigger (with grid on). 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Draw a straight line and make Grid visible 
2. select the line  --> Format --> Line
3. Line Styles Menu --> Type: Dots - Dots, Number 1 - 1, Length: empty - empty, Spacing 1.00 cm --> OK

Actual Results:  
The dots are off 1cm grid, I guess it does not calculate size of line - it just adds 1cm in between dots.

Expected Results:
As user I would expect to do 1 cm dots in place of 1 cm - because most of the people can not calculate points and do not think of its size etc. Could there be any easy fix for this please:) ? 

Reproducible: Always

Grid is set in Tools - Options - Writer/Calc/Draw - Grid and in Draw it's 1 cm.
So this looks like being correctly observed. And to be here from OO.
In See also I add similar for Calc.

Dear Libu,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
