Description Bob Bumpous 2018-12-16 23:05:34 UTC
I just downloaded and installed the new version of LibreOffice and the first Writer document (.ODT) I opened had the height of the Horizontal Ruler about 1.75" high.  I opened several other document.  I tried deleting part of the text (in a copy) of the offending document and was able to get the Horizontal Ruler to return to normal size.  In the process, I deleted part of the text and got the Vertical ruler to expand to abnormal size.  

New Writer documents and most opened with the other ODT files I opened all opened with the Horizontal Ruler about 1/4" high as expected, but I did get other documents that opened with the Horizontal Ruler other sizes.  Most of the documents were written or edited in version LibreOffice or OpenOffice.  None of the .docx files I opened had this issue. 

I tried to save the file with the issue using LibreOffice and when I opened that new file, it also had the issue.  Further, using the "View/Rulers/Rulers" menu command to turn the Rulers on and off made it vanish, then show up again, with the same incorrect width. Using the "View/Zoom/Full Page, Page Width, Optimal, etc. menu commands all had no effect on the Horizontal Ruler Height. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the effected .ODT files

Actual Results:
1.75" high Horizontal Ruler

Expected Results:
1/4" high Horizontal Ruler

Reproducible: Always
