In order to reproduce the bug:
 Create new text document. Page is in portrait mode
 Enable Orientation icon in toolbar Formatting:
(a) Display context menu of Formatting toolbar.
(b) Select: Visible Buttons > Orientation
 Click icon Orientation. Symbols Portrait and Landscape are displayed.
 Click Portrait. Page changes to landscape.
Expected behaviour: No change of orientation or better display a message: “Orientation is already Portrait.”. Possible is also also to grey the icon Portrait if the orientation is already Portrait.
Bug probably has occured since version 5.3.0. In versions before the icon Orientation does not exist.
Tested with version 6.0.5 (64 bit, Win 10)
Reproducible with LO 6.0.5
The icon was added at https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=83b7e1f424a3fb0963b064e77d973e5f655fac1a
The behaviour is not observed on the sidebar
I guess we need to check if the button used is diferent to the previous one in https://opengrok.libreoffice.org/xref/core/sw/source/uibase/sidebar/PageOrientationControl.cxx#191
Dear Harald Koester,
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
