sample document

Hi!
Sorry for my English.

In an attachment, a document (and screenshots), which display on the screen and when printed are different. The text overlaps the adjacent cell.

Please, fix it.
Thank you.

If you can't reproduce the problem, try to change the scale of the view that the contents of the cells could fit one line with minimal column width.

Comment 8 Eugenij Shkrigunov 2012-04-23 05:49:00 UTC
The problem is that the similar documents was created by accounting program(many times per day) and macros set the optimal width of the columns. When you print the text is damaged.
Please, help.

Thanks for bugreport
> Are there any news?
Yes, but they are very bad.

What I see currently:
on Windows, in 3.5.2: initially after opening attachment, hight of rows is 0,73 cm. Print preview shows overlapped text. But when editing mode I right mouse click on any word, hight of rows immediately changes to 1,26 cm. It is strange. But when I change width of column so that text fits in cells, then Print preview shows all correct.

on Fedora 64 bit, in 3.5.3: initially after opening attachment, hight of rows is 1,31 cm. After changing width of column so that text fits in cells, then Print preview shows all correct.

on Fedora 64 bit, in 3.3.4: initially after opening attachment, hight of rows is 0,72 cm, text fits into cells in edit mode initially, no need to change width of column. Print preview shows overlapped text.

So, Calc behaves very different in different versions and OS.

The problem is on the amd64 and x86, Windows and Linux (various distro).
If you can't reproduce the problem, try to change the scale and width of column that
the contents of the cells could fit one line with minimal column width.
On different platforms, the problem may occur at different scales.

> try to change the scale
Indeed, in edit mode distance from right text margin to right hand column edge differs depending of zoom. reproduced this in 3.5.4 on XP and Fedora

But in File->Page preview all looks correctly. And I have question:
In File->Page preview bug always seen or appears such situations that in File->Page preview all correct, but on Printer text is wrapped?

And another question: it reproducible with different fonts or with some specific font?

Dependence on the scale (with a minimum width of a column): preview sometimes correct, sometimes not. I have always found such a scale at which the preview incorrect.
If preview incorrect - hard copy incorrect too.
I tried a dozen fonts - there is a problem with all.

And opposite variant: preview correct - hard copy corrupted exists?

I interesting in this question, because can not reproduce this bug on Windows and Linux in 3.5.4 version. It may be because I not see bug, because in preview it not shown, but on printer appears.

Another question: bug reproducible namely in first attachment document or for testing used another document. And in 3.5.4 version bug still seen in PagePreview?

Somehow resembles this:
Bug 45869 - PDF: PDF conversion different from original ODS

I did not notice that.

To reproduce, try to reduce the column width so that the text does not fit and look preview.

Yes, in 3.5.4 there is a problem too.

Maybe it is somehow related to this bug.
Comment 18 sasha.libreoffice 2012-06-05 01:55:47 UTC
Problem appears (in page preview) only if I reduce column with so that last word becomes hidden and red triangle appears (in edit mode).

Actually, I have a problem with a minimum width of a column: LibreOffice-3.4.5.2, Gentoo amd64.

The bug still present in versions: 4.2.8.2, 4.3.5.2
Comment 27 parchd 2015-03-23 13:14:51 UTC
Still present:
Version: 4.4.1.2
Build ID: 4.4.1.2 Arch Linux build-2

I suggest that this bug be classed as major. In my case, it causes the content of one cell to appear in the cell above it (or sometimes overlapping an adjacant cell).

The text apearing in the wrong cell without overlap can be extremely misleading.

The problem is not apparent when editing, but is apparent in both print preview and exported PDFs.

The spreadsheet I am working with is created from scratch in LibreOffice Calc, not exported from any other software.

I am not sure if this is the same problem, but I am getting the character spacings messed up for proportional fonts in writer and calc.  Lireoffice 6.1.1.1 from Debian Testing.  Screenshot attached.

Me neither.
