Test kit

Steps how to reproduce with Parallel Dev-Installation of  "LibreOffice 3.5.0 Beta1 - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) German UI [Build-ID: 7362ca8-b5a8e65-af86909-d471f98-61464c4] Windows_Release_Configuration  11-Dec-2011 06:51":

1. Open attached "sample1.odt" (has been created with Beta1), Page margin 
   settings should look as first screenshot shows (5mm all around)
2. Close document
3. Open with LibO 3.4.4
   Expected: page margins all 5mm
   Actual: 20-0-20-20mm

As expected, when you save document with 3.4.4, 3.5 will show 20-0-20-20mm margin.
LibO 3.3.3 portable and OOo 3.1.1 show the same margins as LibO 3.4.4 for "sample1.odt", so I am pretty sure that it's a Beta1/Master problem

Old problem with all my master versions back to July

Breaking version interoperability is a potential blocker!

Atached testkit contains
- "sample1.odt" (with that document I observed the problem the first time)
- "MASTER_110906.odt", a most simple document created with  
   Server installation of Master "LibO-dev 3.5.0 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 
   English UI [(Build ID:  d3d1481-3f8994a-2ba0a9f)]" (110909)

Hi Rainer,

Are you sure you uploaded the right test kit? Your file is named "test - Kopie.zip" and it is in fact an .odt.

That said, I observed several time the problem you describe, but until now, I am not able to obtain a clear scenario.

Best regards. JBF
Comment 2 Cor Nouws 2011-12-15 11:54:34 UTC

Modify Version due to results (already observed in early Master versions
Comment 6 Roman Eisele 2011-12-16 06:51:06 UTC
CONFIRMED both with

-- LibreOffice 3.5.0 pre-beta 1
Build-ID: 1ce7995-7f15fca-1f1fd1a-ca8e46d-5bcbce4
Build Date: 2011-12-13

-- LibreOffice Master
Build ID: 0f44079-d46295c-6e20485-4c1bcb5-libreoffice-3-5-branch-point
Build Date: 2011-12-15

both running on MacOS X 10.6.8.

(1) The steps given by Rainer Bielefeld give the (wrong) result he describes: the margins of 5 mm all around get 20-0-20-20 mm margins when I open the sample document with LibreOffice 3.4.4.

(2) I get the same results if I create a new ODT document with LibreOffice 3.5 beta 1 or Master, set the margins to 5 mm all around, save the ODT file and then open the file with LibreOffice 3.4.4: I get 0-0-20-20 mm margins.

-- changed Status to NEW
-- changed Platform to All because not only Windows is affected.

Comment 8 Pedro 2011-12-16 08:52:37 UTC
Modifying all margins to 0.5cm in 3.4.5 Beta1 produces a document that shows correctly in all versions of LO from 3.3.4 to 3.5.0B1

So this is indeed a regression on the way the page borders are saved.

Some additional info about this bug (on LibreOffice 350beta2/Ubuntu Linux):

I created the document in attachment (TOC test - 350beta2.odt) with some text, a heading and a table of contents.

In the 3.5.0 beta 2 version, the right margin looks ok (Format > Page > Right margin = 2). In the 3.4.4 version the right margin appears wrong (Format > Page > Right margin = 0).

Comment 16 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2012-01-06 02:57:56 UTC
oops, didn't notice this bug earlier; i introduced this problem in some OOo 3.4 bugfix CWS, and fixed it in a different OOo 3.4 bugfix CWS; i wonder why isn't that fix in LO master?
Comment 17 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2012-01-06 03:22:21 UTC
ah yes, this:

was masterfixed in OOO340m0, which we haven't merged.

my fix never writes fo:margin, while Cedric's fix writes it in addition to 4 individual margins if all of them are equal; both seem correct to me.

the CWS that introduced the regression sw34bf04 does not seem to be in libreoffice-3.4, so no need to backport.

thanks for fixing it Cedric, and sorry that i didn't notice earlier.
