Description Jax 2020-01-31 12:39:40 UTC
When zooming in to a sheet with Frozen Cells, the Freeze is (appropriately) disabled if the you zoom in too far to make the zoom workable.  All good so far.
If you (inevitably) zoom back out again, the Freeze Cells point is not reapplied.  I suggest that the Freeze setting is merely disabled (rather than cancelled and forgotten) if display area is less than zoom area.
A freeze point outside the currently zoomed area probably means that the former  zoom setting will be returned to.

Whadya think?

Probably happened before ver 6.0.7 but I can't recall.  I have Ubuntu 18.04LTS but I guess it is all OSes.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Split screen (say half way down/across visible sheet) then freeze cells
2. Zoom in very close
3. Zoom out again

Actual Results:
Freeze point disappears

Expected Results:
Freeze point wanted back where I deliberately set it.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Thank you for reporting the bug.
it seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice.
Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

Thanks for the reply.  I am using the official, current ubuntu-bionic-upgrade version from Canonical, which usually lags behind LO-fresh.  As I understand it, 6.0.7 is an official and current release of LO.

From the LO Downloads page:
> LibreOffice 6.0.7
> If you deploy LibreOffice in an enterprise or corporate environment
> or are a conservative user, please choose this version.

I am a borderline (small 'c') conservative user who welcomes (relative) stability so don't upgrade unless I am desperate for a feature.

Are you saying that:
 - there no support for this seemingly current, official, stable, enterprise version?
 - this bug is fixed in 6.1.4 or merely unconfirmed in 6.0.7?

Errm... oops!
When writing the previous comment, it seems like I was looking at an old, copycat website:

So, according to https://www.libreoffice.org/download/download/ the current versions are 6.4.0 (Fresh) and 6.3.4 (Solid, or whatever it's called).

Canonical are now lagging heavily, at least for 18.04LTS, although the snap version is 6.4.0.  How stable is this likely to be and can anyone confirm this bug in LO 6.3.4 or later?

You can safely and easily test with an appimage: https://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/

Sorry, been offline a lot due to lockdowns.

Due to a dead laptop, I am now running Xubuntu and LO
I downloaded an AppImage (from LibreOffice website directly) and can CONFIRM issue in the latest STILL version

Steps taken:
1 Split spreadsheet in middle of screen
2 View > Freeze Rows and Columns
3 Zoom in hard so that the split in sheet is forced off the edge of the screen due to lack of space
4 Zoom out again
5 In my version, the split is not reapplied (as would be desireable)

AppImage version:

Comment 9 Jax 2020-11-08 14:14:45 UTC
Note:  Horizontal and Vertical splits are independently lost or kept, depending upon whether they disappear due to lack of screen space during zoom.
