Description Edoardo Brogiolo 2020-03-27 16:04:54 UTC
Whenever I insert a new Text Box in Impress, after I have finished writing and I click elsewhere (hence unfocusing the Text Box), it shifts right and down.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new LO Impress file
2. F2 or Insert Text Box
3. Write in the newly inserted Text Box
4. Click outside of the Text Box
5. The Text (and Text Box it seems) instantaneously and noticeably moves a handful of pixels right and down.

Actual Results:
Major interference with Formatting of the presentation, requiring manual intervention to drag the Text Box back in its intended place

Expected Results:
The Text Box should stay in the originally determined place

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

I had erroneously marked the bug as NEW, I return it to UNCONFIRMED in the hope that a developer will initiate dialogue with me to troubleshoot the bug!

@Mike Kaganski @raal
I had sent one email to Mr. Le Grand, asking if I could kindly ask for his help, and provide with a modest financial contribution should he need to allocate some extra time to look into this commit he made 3 years ago.

Unfortunately I haven't heard from him, and I must believe he could may too busy to look into it in the upcoming future.

May I ask if any of you were available, and if I could make the same type of offer? I will be grateful if you were to get back to me to discuss considering this!

Thank you!!

Do you think it would be possible to revert the commit, or would there be the risk for some unforeseen and undesirable side effects?
Comment 7 Edoardo Brogiolo 2020-12-09 14:45:38 UTC
This nasty bug persists unchanged in Libreoffice Impress version
Comment 8 Edoardo Brogiolo 2021-04-27 21:55:09 UTC
1 year and a month later, I can confirm this bug persists unchanged in Libreoffice
Monsieur Le Grand never got back to me either.
Comment 9 Armin Le Grand 2022-01-05 10:00:05 UTC
Maybe double to tdf#143117 (and vice-versa)
