Resizing a flowchart with shapes using the "resize shape to fit text" option
1. Create two shapes in drawing with some text inside them
2. Enable the "Resize shape to fit text" option in one or both of the shapes
3. Select both shapes
4. Resize the group
5. Resize the group again
6. Try to undo
The more resizing you'll do, the worse the problem becomes. Flowcharts are a particular problem with this bug. I am attaching 3 documents that display how a flowchart using this option is completely messed up.
The correct behavior for shapes with this option enabled would be to prevent resizing of the shape while allowing resizing of the other elements of the group containing the shape.
As this problem cannot be fixed with the Undo command, it has the potential to lead to serious formatting loss and thus I believe that the severity level is Major.
Thanks for bugreport
Reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.3 on Fedora 64 bit
And undo not works
Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproducible
I have removed the version since this bug affects early OpenOffice versions (2.x at least) as well.
I'm adding this to the most annoying bugs for the earliest supported version. While Drawing is not the most used function in LibreOffice, a bug causing irreversible damage to a document should be corrected in a stable version.
Changed to the earliest possible version according to the guidelines
Not really a conventional data-loss problem, at least the users sees what they have done, on the other hand - really not ideal :-) thanks for filing.
confirmed in LibO 4.0.4
moving from the mab3.6 list to the mab4.0 list (3.6.x is EOL)
This bug is fixed in OpenOffice 4.1
(In reply to comment #7)
> This bug is fixed in OpenOffice 4.1
what do you mean: LibreOffice 4.1.1 or Apache OpenOffice 4.0.1?
Apache OpenOffice 4.0.1
In LibreOffice 4.1.1 still [reproducible]
The bug is fixed in OpenOffice 4.1 (currently in development). See this: https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=115391
Status should be NEW
(This is an automated message.)
Setting priority to highest as this is a 4.0 MAB. This is part of an effort to make the importance of MAB reflected in priority too.
Could someone test if this is still an issue in 4.1 and/or 4.2?
reproducible bug in 4.1.3 on Fedora RFR 64bit
However UNDO now works correctly.
Moving to mab4.1 as 4.0 reached end of life. Cheers for testing!
please give an update on the status of this bug under 18.104.22.168
still reproducible or not?
reproducible under 22.214.171.124
moving to mab4.2 list since 4.1.x is EOL
