Testing on Win, the widths are equal with 3.5.0, but not with 4.4.7. However, on Linux with 41max-50max, the widths are equal as well (albeit smaller) and there is no effect with checking Follow text.

Please try bibisecting with Win or Mac.

Weird, activating and deactivating the checkbox "Follow text flow" is making the "height" text box with spinner wider and shorter.

I can reproduce this issue with following steps:

1) Open new Writer document.
2) Insert 37 paragraph lines with default values (on Linux: Liberation Serif, 12pt). In another test document it's enough to have 34 lines.
3) Insert a rectangle shape.
4) Open Position and Size dialog.
   * You can choose Width and Height with values whatever you want.
   * Anchor to paragraph.
   * Position horizontal from left can be a value whatever you want.
   * With 37 lines above: Position vertical from top must be 0,2 cm to Margin or greater.
   * With 34 lines above: Position vertical from top must be 1,7 cm to Margin or greater.
5) Close the dialog with OK.
6) Reopen the dialog.

Dear Telesto,

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
