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

> it seems you're using an old version of LibreOffice.

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?

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.

Dear Jax,

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
