Description skiani 2012-03-04 19:33:41 UTC
If you accidentally change the size of a text box in draw or presentation then try to undo it will not change the size of the bounding box back to original size. See attached video demonstration.

Video showing problem

This video illustrates the problem. (file size limit last time). Start of video is a little odd after compressing. But basically you see a text box that is size the text (just default entered text). Then the box is resized. The Undo button is hit, which should return it back to the fitted box. But, the bounding box is stuck to the pre-undo state which is clear when you turn on the outline text.

Strangely if the box outline is showing before you make any changes undo works as you expect.

While I marked as Linux x64 I believe problem is also present on windows.

Reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.1 on Fedora 64 bit and 3.5.0 on Windows 7
Steps to reproduce:
0. Start Impress
1. Change layout to empty slide
2. Draw rectangle using "Text box" tool on "Drawing" toolbar
3. enter some text in this toolbar
4. Select textbox frame, rightclick, Area in context menu, change color
5. Increase textbox vertically
6. Undo it
7. Place text cursor into text
Expected: textbox as after step 4.
Actually: colored as after step 4, but size of text frame is as after step 5
8. save presentation
9. File->Reload
Expected: slide looking as before step 9
Actually: hight of colored rectangle increased
