Description merkursports 2012-03-26 10:10:27 UTC
Problem description: In older versions of OO it was able to stretch an object (text or pictures) pressing Alt key and pulling with mouse, either horizontally or vertically.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Draw a picture or write a text (formatted to adjust to the frame)....
2. ....Press Alt key and pull/drag with the mouse from buttons at frame border
3. ....

Current behavior: Frame size cannot be stretched simmetrically

Expected behavior:Frame should be stretched simmetrically

Platform (if different from the browser): It does not work either under Linux and Windows version. This feature has been missed since several versions of OO include, so for those that did not work with older versions is a new thing, unknown for the most.

Mayb e you are trying with pictures, yes it works. But before it was able to do with text objects too.
Try again with text box, and text fitted to frame.

enlarging simmetrically

Enclosed is a picture showing a text object enlarged simmetrically horizontally, where you see at the upper picture an enlarged box like discontinuos line, pitifully it not show mouse pointer too.
The picture under show the frame an enlarged text after release mouse button.
It was made under OO 2.4 and windows 98, pressing Alt while dragging with the mouse.

Never confirmed independently by QA team - moving to UNCONFIRMED.

Valid enhancement request.
Comment 11 Heiko Tietze 2016-06-30 07:59:13 UTC
You resize objects at the handles and proportionally with shift being pressed. Works perfectly also with text boxes. (The default was changed for pictures recently so you have to press shift there in order to disable the proportional scaling.)

If this request is about the content, meaning the text size should adopt to the new size, we would have a bug 59758.

Old bug, setting NEEDINFO.
Comment 12 Buovjaga 2016-06-30 10:32:29 UTC
The request is not about the content of the box, but this:

Note the key point: FROM ITS CENTER.
