Description sworddragon2 2011-08-05 10:07:18 UTC
The Writer window i not maximized if LibreOffice is started the first time. I'm wondering about this because for example Calc is maximized at default on the first start. This behaviour existed already in OpenOffice.
Comment 1 Jeffrey 2011-08-06 19:54:50 UTC
For me it is the converse, Writer and Impress is maximized by default, while Calc is not. I think there is some way to change the settings to alter the default sizes.

Tested on LibreOffice 3.4  340m1(Build:103) for OpenSuse Linux.

Is that behavior still happen on latest stable release?
Comment 4 sworddragon2 2013-06-21 16:24:03 UTC
Yes, the bug still exists on LibreOffice 4.0.4.
Comment 5 ign_christian 2013-06-22 00:36:46 UTC
I can't reproduce on LO (Ubuntu 12.04 32bit), also not reproducible on LO (Win7 32bit). As far as I remember I've never experienced that on any release.

Perhaps we still need more infos. Is it possible if you retest using 3.6.6 release? Have you tried resetting user profile? Please inform your OS too
Comment 6 sworddragon2 2013-06-22 02:34:41 UTC
The bug exists in LibreOffice 3.6.x too. I'm always using a new profile to test this problem. Since Calc is working fine but Writer not I'm assuming this is a LibreOffice bug. Maybe it is triggered because of some behavior of my window manager (Openbox 3.5.0).
Comment 7 ign_christian 2013-06-22 03:53:30 UTC
Oh..perhaps we need confirmation from Openbox user. 

Or if possible you could also try using other window manager.
Comment 8 sworddragon2 2013-06-25 01:37:55 UTC
I have now tested this on a completely new installed Windows XP with LibreOffice 4.0.4 and the bug appears there too. First I have started Calc and it was maximized as expected. After closing Calc and opening Writer it wasn't maximized.
Comment 9 ign_christian 2013-06-25 01:55:30 UTC
Let we mark UNCONFIRMED again since I can't confirm that behavior
Comment 10 Bjarki Kristinsson 2013-07-08 22:30:57 UTC
I can confirm this bug. Happens both when downloading a daily build and running it from inside the folder and also happened on the installed version. Opened Calc first, was maximized. After that I ran Writer and it wasn't maximized on either of them.

Running Windows 8 64-bit

daily build:

Version 4.04
