Description Thorsten Wagner 2019-05-26 22:14:49 UTC
Impress' statusbar contains object's coordinates as well as object's width and height. Object's coordinates are rendered too close to object's width and height (see screenshot).

Steps to Reproduce:
(1) Open Impress

(2) Move cursor to a position with two digits before decimal point and two digits after decimal point regarding to horicontal and vertical positions

Actual Results:
Position display extends to beginning of width/height display within statusbar

Expected Results:
Position display and width/height display have a clearly visible distance

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Issue exists only on macOS. Using Linux statusbar is rendered properly. Issue has been corrected in the past, so it seems to be a regression.

Seems to be displaying correctly in 

Build ID: 03a2f3ec4316a3953c2fa40e6e59c2ebbc824d09
CPU threads: 4; OS: Mac OS X 10.14.4; UI render: default; VCL: osx; 
Locale: fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

which is older than the version you tested against
Comment 3 Regina Henschel 2019-05-27 13:46:55 UTC
I see the problem in Version: (x64)
Build ID: 684975ec42b20f78826fd623ca5f7c47475e037a
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: default; VCL: win; 
Locale: en-US (en_US); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

The problem becomes more visible, if you work in Millimeter. Then the last digits are missing. But it is Impress and not Draw. Such precision is seldom used.

You can solve the problem for yourself: Close LibreOffice. In the installation folder goto share/config/soffice.cfg/modules/simpress/statusbar and copy the file statusbar.xml. Then goto to your LibreOffice 'user' folder and there to config/soffice.cfg/modules/simpress/statusbar. Insert it there. Open the file from your 'user' folder in an editor and look for the line with '.uno:Size'. Change the value from 200 to 250 for example. Save file. Restart LibreOffice. It should be wide enough then.

@ Regina: Thank you for the tip, it works!

In LO 5.4 size was set to 400. Why not restoring this setting as default for simpress/statusbar.xml?

Patch has been submitted to Gerrit: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/73227
Comment 6 Thorsten Wagner 2019-09-24 21:47:39 UTC
Spacing within statusbar has been changed with current revision from master (see screenshot taken without patch). It seems to be a new regression.
Comment 7 Thorsten Wagner 2019-09-24 21:50:53 UTC
Patch abandoned due to new regression.
Comment 8 Xisco Faulí 2019-10-16 14:52:56 UTC
it seems to be a duplicate of bug 127411. Noel is working on it...
