Description muso 2018-12-05 01:41:30 UTC
Created attachment 147293 [details]
ODT test file

- open the attached simple file and move the box "some red text" to the right side
- click the undo button

result: the movement is not undone since the moved text box lands on a different place

- now press the redo button

result: the box is placed somewhere else

- now press undo then redo a few times and see that the box is placed quite randomly

I found out that the bug does not appear when I delete the image in the file so it seems the fact that the file contains an image seems to be important for the bug.

The occurs no matter if you move the box to the upper or lower right of the page, the random movement with several undo/redo however only occurs when moving the box to the lower right.

tdf#109137 sw textbox: fix initial wrap type of a shape's textbox
Comment 5 Miklos Vajna 2018-12-18 15:37:54 UTC
Sorry, I think this just made existing problem more visible. I'll attach an ODT which has no textbox in it (textbox as in the feature described at https://vmiklos.hu/blog/textbox.html) and the same problem happens there as well: if you just select the shape, press the right arrow then undo, you don't get back the original position.

So yes, this is a bug, it has to be fixed, but it's not a regression.
