Description Urber Guintoru 2018-11-18 14:39:36 UTC
(sorry for my English)
Sidebar's Page properties allow changes in paper size and margins;  but when changing *margins*, alla shapes are resized without any warning !

This shouldn't happen: changing margins from menu  Page->Properties...   preserves object properties 

(I believe this is an old issue because every now and then I didn't understand the reason of some drawing measures)
Cheers. G.

I've to say I use Italian and En-US UI:  in both sidebar presents following margin options:

None
Narrow
Moderate
Normal 0.75'' 
Normal 1''
Normal 1.25''
Wide

Displaying imperial measures both in IT and in EN-US interface.

Can not confirm on Windows 10 Home 64-bit en-US with
Version: 6.2.0.0.alpha1+ (x64)
Build ID: 525ed5d1fcb89412f0b80be0b1e35410b048c337

Adjusting page margins has no affect on size/proportion of objects that have no relation to page, e.g. Frame, Draw Text Box, Draw Object.  

Their Anchor position shifts, following page-paragraph-or character as set.

And for objects that do take value(s) from page margins, e.g. Tables, Columns--resize to match page margin is expected behavior.

I've tried now on 6.2.0.0.alpha1 and happens there too.

Just to clarify: the problem is only in draw and only when page margins are changed by the dropdown in the sidebar on the right.
Comment 4 V Stuart Foote 2018-11-18 19:32:08 UTC
OK, now I see it. Yes the changing page margin settings of the Draw canvas are affecting Draw object attributes--visible directly for each object's Position & Size dialog.  That seems incorrect.

The option was added to the sidebar in https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=fba28df77d7e98663d1cf77ac206f8799fce4108

relevant setting

The usual setting of this member is 'false' in Draw and 'true' in Impress. That can be set by the user with checkbox 'Fit object to paper format' (not persistent) in the Page Properties dialog, tab Page.

Because Impress does not have this setting in the sidebar, I guess it is save to force it to 'false' here. But I'm busy with other things and will not investigate further.
