Description BDF 2022-04-17 13:33:19 UTC
I was using calc and clicked on the window control 'restore' in the top right corner. The Window was resized to an unusably small size. The only visible UI element in there was the close button.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open LO window in Dolphin (KDE)
2. Click 'restore' button

I have no idea if this error would turn up more than once. Maybe this will never turn up again if a minimum window size is set.

Actual Results:
The window turns unusably small

Expected Results:
A leave a minimum Window size with at least the 'maximise' and 'close' UI elements visible.
A better idea would may be to have a minimum window size with some content.

Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
- See attached image
- I reported this in the KDE bugtracker as well since I have no idea what this behaviour is caused by: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=452700

Tiny LibreOffice window after 'retore' is used

The window of LibreOffice in the top left corner is scaled down and no content is visible. Only the close button is left.

The "workaround" is of course to manually resize the Window. Duhh, right?

It was an unexpected behaviour and first I thought that LibreOffice crashed. Then I wasn't sure what really did happen. After I closed and reopened calc I saw the leftover from the windows in the top left corner.

Bug report on the KDE bug tracker got closed by Nate Graham: "It really sounds like a LibreOffice bug"

I encounter the same behavior with Calc on Ubuntu Budgie and Xubuntu (Xfce desktop).
So I don't think its related to KDE.

IMHO it is a duplicate of https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=125543
