Sample ODS

- Open the attached spreadsheet, which has a chart, an embedded image and a shape extending to multiple pages.
- Execute Tools -> Redact.
- Optionally save the PDF from Draw (no need to perform any actual redaction of the content).

=> The chart covers the margins. The positioning is correct, but the content overlapping the margins is duplicated on the different pages (once on margin, once inside the page area).
Interestingly, the cut-off can be slightly off compared to the edge of the page as well, but of course it'll have to be cut off at the margin anyway.

Observed using LO (47c598260a8f07cf3a1e4cab061df3f2d261932c) / Windows.

Before the fix to tdf#125135 the situation was worse.

Note that Calc should behave differently compared to Writer and Impress, in those the content appears as placed, but Calc has a continuous canvas.

Dear Aron Budea,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
