Description ffs 2019-05-30 20:36:24 UTC
Obviously a pita but I need to create a form in calc that is shared with excel users and it needs to have a scroll bar.

If I save a scrollbar in LO and reload it:

- .xls format: the scrollbar is there but the min and max values are 0,0 so it doesn't scroll.  If I put them back to 0,100 and save/reload it is back to 0,0.

- .xlsx format: the scrollbar is simply missing.

Steps to Reproduce:
Create a spreadsheet with a scroll bar save as .xls or .xlsx, reload and the scrollbar is broken or absent

Actual Results:
.xls :scrollbar is present but has incorrect range
.xlsx: scrollbar is absernt

Expected Results:
scrollbar should be there and working

Reproducible: Always

Confirm with Version:
Build ID: 4904391e125eb66304a5c029def8d4c1a150952d
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
in 4.1 is slider completely missing in LO. In 6.3 the slider is visible in LO, but in excel2010 error message "Excel completed file level validation and repair. Some parts of this workbook may have been repaired or discarded" and slider is removed upon open.
open file
save as xlsx

I can confirm that if a slider is placed in excel and saved then LO can load it correctly. So it appears to be a LO filesave issue.
