Description Przemysław 2019-02-09 10:01:36 UTC
Entering column or changing cell padding settings the defined row height is expanded. Then clicking undo and redo change spreadsheet to new settings and the former height.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. enter new column or
2. select a cell or cells, open "cell format" and change border padding
3. your cells' height is changed so press "undo" _then_ "redo" - your changes will be accepted and the heights will come back to former values

Actual Results:
New format settings are accepted.

Expected Results:
Do not coerce me to use trick __undo and redo__ click.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

1) Probably it happens when one cell in a row is formated with wrapped text:
Format Cells -> Alignment -> Properties -> Wrap text automatically.

2) The rows without "typical" text cells were not touched by the height changes. What's more, it's enough when cells have text longer than content's of the column's title. See 4) screenshot (4th attachment)

3) So, it all suggests that Calc changes column width to default one based on column's title after _any_ e.g. copy process concerning any spreadsheet with text data. See 5) screenshot (5th attachment)

What a mess! :(

Please pay attention that one time data are correct in form time HH:MM, other as text e.g. '10:00. Probably the LO nasty behavior is result of my negligence to strict rules how to create correct Calc files.

Based on the screenshots, I went to column I, inserted column after, but there was no increase in row height.

Regarding border padding, I would expect the cell height to increase a bit (maybe it increased a lot in your case, but you did not provide numbers for before & after).

Do you still see this with 6.2.5 or 6.3?

Change back to UNCONFIRMED, if the problem persists. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.
