Description Florian Reisinger 2012-02-21 00:45:24 UTC
After opeining Writer, and creating a new footer, click on Footer and then on "Border / background". You need a german UI. With German UI on Win XP SP3 there is " (Inch), but there should be "mm"
See pic:

It is right, if you open and close the "Paragraph" dialoge once before.

The reporter (it's not me) thought, that a variable (which unit of measurement will be used) is not checked at the "Border / background" Dialog.

I can not confirm it on Win7 x64 SP1 with the same LibO Version.

For testing purpose a new user-dir had been created.

I can reproduce this bug under Linux Mint, LO 3.5 final (german ui) 
and Ubuntu 10 LO 3.5 final 
See pic here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3483911/header-lo3.5.png
Comment 2 Volker Merschmann 2012-02-21 03:40:48 UTC
Reproducable with WindowsXP32 and LO 3.5.0.

Easy steps to reproduce:
- New start of LO (no quickstarter)
- Opening Writer
- Insert Header
- Go to Frame/Background through the new dropdown
- Units for distance to content show up in inch instead of millimeter

The units will show up correct if you have opened the paragraph format before.

Bug is still there in 3.6
Comment 5 A (Andy) 2013-04-30 21:08:12 UTC
for me not reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

Does this issue still persist for you with the latest release of LO?
