Description Mauro Calzavara 2020-06-22 10:57:06 UTC
Impress: When formatting a text box with a scrolling enhancement, the scrolling is normal in editing mode. But, when going to presentation mode (F5), the characters of the string reverse (first char becomes the last, and viceversa).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a IMPRESS section
2. Add a single line Text Box
3. Apply the scrolling format to the text
4. Go in presentation mode (F5)

Actual Results:
The scrolling reverses from editing to presentation mode

Expected Results:
No reverse.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Fine in LO 7.1+ master with Skia, fine in old LO 6.1, not seen in Linux for me. 
Bug seen with GDI and OpenGL in LO 6.2 in Windows. So Windows bibisect needed. 
I know 3 good people doing it, let's add one one them here. 
Telesto, your info is useful, but is not complete, you need to pinpoint LO version where bibisect can be done, if you cannot do it yourself.

Dear Mauro Calzavara,

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
