Description Elliot 2020-02-19 23:06:59 UTC
Adding a new column to a table in Impress will result in each cell being filled with strangely formatted text. This text seems to be bulletted (although there is no visual indication of this other than an indent) and in a different font than the rest of the table.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new table
2. Add a new column to the table
3. Type text in some of the new cells

Actual Results:
Each new cell is filled with text in a different font from the rest of the table and seems to be in bullet list mode.

Expected Results:
Each new cell should not be bulletted and should have the same (default if not applicable) formatting (font, size, and/or color) as the rest of the table.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
OS: Manjaro Linux 
Build ID: 6.4.0-2
CPU threads: 12; OS: Linux 5.5; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3;

This also affects version (tested in a Fedora virtual machine)

I can't reproduce it in

Build ID: 678e00d2251060b562f295a5fb3c0215b12c8042

Could you please try in safe mode. Go to help - Restart in Safe mode ?
Comment 3 Elliot 2020-02-26 20:27:47 UTC
Safe mode does not fix the problem! Are you sure you are adding a new column and not a new row or creating a new table?

Comment 5 Oliver Grimm 2020-02-27 20:47:29 UTC
I can reproduce this bug here in 

Build-ID: 1:6.4.1~rc1-2
CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Linux 4.19; UI-Render: Standard; VCL: kf5; 
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE.UTF-8); UI-Sprache: de-DE
Calc: threaded

Strangely, this bug is only reproducible if one enters some text into the table before adding a column. If one adds a column to an empty table and then types text, the bug does not occur.

To reproduce do

- start a new presentation
- delete the initial frame in the main area
- select insert | table from main menu
- type some text into the table
- mouse select the rightmost column
- select "insert | column | right hand side" from the mouse menu
- type in some text

--> observe that the font is changed and a bullet appears out of nowhere.

Repro 7.1+.
Sample ODP in attachment 167164 [details] has text in some rows and there is the bug. 
Just add column right and type some letter in it's cells. See 2 NOK and 2 OK.
