Description Zoltán Reizinger 2010-10-15 08:37:19 UTC

    1. Launch OOo Writer

    2. Insert a Form control

    3. Double click the inserted control to call out the properties dialog box


    + The fields PositionX, PositionY, Width and Height are intialized as a
    big negative number: -92,233,720,368,547,758.08''

    + The number is not adjustable in fields of PositionX and PositionY

    + If push the Up arrow for the fields Width and Height, it will become 0,
    then take the focus out of the field, the negative number will turn back
    while the control is gone. I think it was actually set with 0 for
    height/weight fields.

This hurt report builder controls, too.

This was a bug not solved in go-oo, made unusable the form design.

Could be that the patch is yet to be integrated into LO.

Noel, one for you?
