Description rknasc 2011-02-21 09:36:34 UTC
Created attachment 43615 [details]
A single line document.  Increasing page size by 0.01" shows problem.

In the attached document, the words correctly appear all on one line.  If you increase the paper width by 0.01", you get one character per line.

This problem also occurs in OpenOffice 3.3

I discovered this when trying to make a Banner for a Toshiba e-Studio printer/copier (paper size = 12"x47.24").

Comment 5 rknasc 2015-03-04 14:42:16 UTC
Today I have confirmed this bug using the file originally attached to the report.

Operating System is Windows 7 64 bit.

"About LibreOffice" info:
Build ID: de093506bcdc5fafd9023ee680b8c60e3e0645d7
Locale: en_US

When I tell LibreOffice to check for Updates it reports "Up to Date".

This also fails with the most recent version of LibreOffice on OpenSuSE 13.2:
Build ID: 430m0(Build:2)
Comment 6 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2015-03-07 07:52:03 UTC
Workaround: use Draw and Fontwork to make a banner.
Note: in Draw the page size A0 is available, it is not in Writer.

Best regards. JBF

Replicated this bug in Cinnamon Mint 17.1 64-bit running Libre Writer version, and will test it on another machine with 4.4 shortly. When I exceed  47.0" in total paper width (user-defined paper to print on), Libre Writer reformats the text into a very narrow column. Narrow back down to 47.0" or less and the text rewraps to fit up to the left and right margins.
Comment 8 K7AAY 2015-05-07 03:34:56 UTC
Also occurs using version, Build ID: c4c7d32d0d49397cad38d62472b0bc8acff48dd6, on another Linux Mint Cinnamon 17 64-bit system.

When you download the original attachment and reset the page width to 48", LibreOffice only shows one character per line.
