The sm Formula editor module is launched for OLE editing upon double click--placement of objects on its canvas has little to do with the sm object on the Impress slide.

The two canvases are not "registered", ie they likely will not appear in the same location when the formula is being edited.

So long as the formula on the Impress slide is not repositioned or distored upon leaving the sm Formula OLE edit session there is no bug here.

It would be nice enhancement if the canvases could be registered and held in the same screen dimensions--but they are not.


@Regina, would you agree?

No. I consider it a bug in LibreOffice. The problem does not exist in Apache OpenOffice.

But it is duplicate to bug 37754.
