Description Guy 2020-02-29 18:47:27 UTC
Table set up, simple text and formatting. Added forms (radio buttons) and now I cannot adjust height of cells rationally. Either goes to 1cm high or 5cm, and moves buttons from cell to cell.

Also - when creating form components, I cannot get the Label to associate with the Option - be it options or list box etc etc, only the Wizard. Have read and followed online tutorials ;-) 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make a table 3 x 3 full page
2.add group boxes of 2 choices per row
3 - format choice text to larger font (10)
3. try to alter cell row height.

Actual Results:
Group box text has bottom of letters cut off.
Random height of row.
Tried to 'lock' to grid (which is invisible too....) no help 

Expected Results:
Be able to see all of font (missing bottom of g etc)
smooth transition of cell height

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Removed and reloaded LO. OS Catalina fully updated. Open GL not enabled. No change with. Also - when trying to raise and lower the table cells height, it even with the correct cursor symbol on display, it selects the cell and the one above / below instead of moving the line.

I think, this behaviour is independend from tables. So the idea is to have a setting like "optimal" in control properties?

I opened your test document and I have no problem adjusting the row heights

With the group text box, are you referring to that e.g., the p and g in Superking is cut off due to lack of space in the box? If you post and image of what you see it would be  

Which version are you on? Would be good if you pasted the info in LibreOffice -> About
