bullet misaligment

When increasing the bullet size, vertical alignment of the bullet with text is off when using one of the two default arrows bullets. The arrows isn't centred with the text (obvious look at the "wings" of the arrow). See screenshot attached

This happens even below 100% size (obvious from 60%). I have changed fonts to try but it has no effects.

The alignment looks good for all other default bullet points so I think the settings needs adjusting only for certain shapes (I think those shape that have a "vertical centre" like arrows) and it is not a global problem.

This is also a common issue with Powerpoint and a few people create a hack to solve. http://www.pptalchemy.co.uk/PowerPoin... http://www.brandwares.com/bestpractic...

Sadly no hack found for LO Impress (and well, I'm not going to start use Powerless and Pointless anytime soon!)

Using LO 7.0.3 on KDE Neon.

The misalignment was not nearly as big in earlier versions. The latest commit in Linux 50max bibisect repo has the upwards shifting much smaller compared with the oldest of 6.3 repo. It would be interesting, if someone bibisected it. I won't still call this a regression as there has always been a shift, however small.

Clear steps:

1. Open Impress
2. Add a second slide and write something to the bullet
3. Format - Bullets and numbering
4. Pick arrow from Bullets tab
5. In Customize tab, set Relative size to 150% and click OK

Please attach sample document and put different large arrows in it.
