Description David 2020-06-05 08:58:27 UTC
When you create a comment/note in LibreOffice Calc, the squares that are supposed to appear to allow the resize of the comment/note box do not appear.  Work around of using "Show Comments" command to make squares appear (Previous Bug 68695), no longer works as of version beta1.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click a cell in Calc
2. Select "Insert Comment"
3. Type any text
4. Squares that are supposed to be on outside of Comment frame to allow resizing will be missing.

Actual Results:
Comment text will work as expected, but there are no squares to allow resize of the frame.  No workaround to make them appear has been found.

Expected Results:
When the comment is created, 8 small squares are supposed to appear on the outer edge of the comment frame when it is created.  These small squares should be able to be left-click dragged to allow to change the shape, size and position of the comment box.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
The last version of LibreOffice that the Calc comment boxes worked as intended was version 4.0.4.

First version of the bug was introduced by Regression introduced by:

use simple text hilight frame when captions are in TextEdit mode

(cherry picked from commit bdcd01c39324f5c74e0f696f2afc3449243e6c4b)

The bug introduced by this commit (Bug 68695) created the result that when you first created the comment frame, the resize squares were missing, but you could then right-click on the cell and select "Show Comment" and the resize squares would appear on the outside of the frame as they were supposed to.

This workaround stopped working, and no other workaround has been found on the following:
