Description NISZ LibreOffice Team 2020-01-30 12:09:47 UTC
Description:
Since bug #89714 the default style has Widow and Orphan control on by default.
This can cause in Writer tables content being hidden, see attached file.
It would be a better default if these were disabled only for the Table Contents default style, since manually turning them off fixes the problem of the attachment.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open attached file.

Actual Results:
The text in the first cell of the second page is not entirely readable.

Expected Results:
All text in the table should be readable. This can be achieved by turning the Widow control and Orphan control off in the Table Contents styles Text Flow tab.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Comment 4 László Németh 2020-01-30 13:07:25 UTC
Note: Writer, like MSO ignores orphan/widow settings, but in the case of Writer, is not perfectly, for example, using vertically merged cells can cause a problem reported in Bug 128959.
