Comment 4 A (Andy) 2013-12-28 16:18:02 UTC
By selecting the anchor you can move him inside the page (reproducible with LO [Win8]). 
Could you please give more information how to reproduce this issue. If it is not reproducible with the latest release of LO then I would propose to close it.
Comment 5 OfficeUser 2014-01-11 17:29:56 UTC
Bug is still present in version

"Could you please give more information how to reproduce this issue."
==> Not really. Just do like described in the initial comment.

Comment 9 Gordo 2015-06-17 14:59:36 UTC
1. New Text Document.
2. Set Zoom to Page Width.
3. From toolbar select Basic Shapes -> Rectangle.
4. Draw it.
5. Right click on shape -> Anchor To Character.
6. With shape selected so that the anchor is visible, hold down ctrl and use the mouse wheel to zoom out.
Anchor is outside page.

Anchor is absolute position instead of relative?

I still see the bug with build (Tested OS: Linux)
Comment 12 OfficeUser 2016-09-24 20:05:19 UTC
I'm rather sure that this bug has been introduced with the centered page view in OpenOffice.org.
Comment 13 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-28 15:50:13 UTC
Please don't add the keyword 'regression' if the bug is inherited from OOo
Comment 14 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-28 15:55:16 UTC
Hello OfficeUser,
Have you checked that this bug is already reproducible in Libreoffice 3.3?

Dear OfficeUser,

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 http://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://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

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

Warm Regards,
QA Team
