@Boudi van Vlijmen
Please contribute information concerning your Operating System (exact version), exact build No, build source, Theme selected in menu 'Tools -> Options -> LibO -> View -> User Interface - Icon size and Style'

Can you contribute a sample document for LibO Bibligraphy Database?

@Rainer : I think this is a dup, but I've got to find the other bug reference. It involves the switch in Form display from Web layout in 3.3.x to Print layout in 3.4.x.

In effect, forms which were created under 3.3.x had the Web layout as default, but this got changed somewhere in the release of 3.4.x and now the default is Print layout, which causes draw object overlaps because all of the objects are pushed within the margins of the available printing space.

The problem is that the user can no longer choose between Print layout and Web layout as they were able to do in previous versions of OOo, from what I have seen reported on the user lists, any attempt to switch layout via the menu is impossible (options greyed out) or simply produces no effect.

However, it has now been reported several times on the user mailing list and I would admit that it would be a pretty annoying bug for me, especially since the option to change no longer has any effect.
