Description Explorer09 2018-06-23 13:20:38 UTC
Description:
Happen on Impress only. When I make a table with a merged cell (spanning multiple rows) and multi-line text in it, the minimum height on one of the rows will increase unnecessarily. And that wastes space.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Impress with a blank slide.
2. Create a 3 x 3 table.
3. Merge three cells in the third column altogether.
4. Fill the cells with some text, like this:

    +----+----+-----------------+
    | A1 | B1 | Column C with   |
    +----+----+ multiple lines  |
    | A2 | B2 | of text.(break) |
    +----+----+ Hello world.    |
    | A3 | B3 |                 |
    +----+----+-----------------+

5. Try to shrink the table height by dragging the resize knobs.


Actual Results:
The example will show row 3 with increased minimum table height, and impossible to size it down (unless the multi-line content in the merged cell gets removed).

Expected Results:
I should be able to get optimal minimum table height. Compare the result with Writer's to see what I mean.


Reproducible: Always

Confirmed with STR, sample document attached.

on Windows 10 Home 64-bit en-US with
Version: 6.2.0.0.alpha0+ (x64)

Resize of width (affecting the merged C1 cell) increases the spacing to content of the last row (A3, B3). Would expect the row 3--A3, B3 not to pick up the spacing to content of the merged cell.
