Description muso 2018-04-30 21:57:22 UTC
- insert a formula to a slide
- try to change the size of the formula

result: this is not possible

- now right-click on the formula and open the Position and Size context menu
- uncheck there that the size is protected
- now set in the dialog the size

result: this works

This is unintuitive and strange workflow. Why can't one just resize the formula by dragging the handle knobs like for all other objects? Also setting the size in the right sidebar of Impress is impossible. So impress hides an existing feature and cost me about 15 minutes to find out how a simple operation works.
