Description Ciprian Trofin 2018-06-21 08:04:16 UTC
I want to set a precise width/height for a rectangle, to 35,00cm. After I confirm the value, it changes to 35,01cm

Drawing scale is set to 1:16
Changing to 1:20 allows me to enter and save the desired value.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set drawing scale to 1:16 (Tools - Options - LibreOffice Draw - General)
2. draw a rectangle
3. select rectangle
4. Format - Position and Size - set size (width and / or height to 35cm); press OK
5. Format - Position and Size - the entered value is set to 35,01cm

Actual Results:
The manually set value changes

Expected Results:
The manually set value should be the one the user intended.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Dear Ciprian Trofin,

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 http://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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
