Description Regina Henschel 2012-04-09 10:39:05 UTC
I have tested daily

The left field in the status bar in Draw should show object information, for example length difference while dragging or angles of arc. But it has in all situations only the text "Nothing".
Comment 1 Regina Henschel 2012-04-14 15:29:23 UTC
The error is in svx\source\svdraw\svdview.cxx in lines 1176 and 1271. The translation of "nix" was wrong. Fix will follow next week.

Regina Henschel committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":


fdo#48473 Missing translation of local String constant

Seems to work now :) in

But ther's a small glitch left: When adding text to an object, after inserting a line break (Return or Shift+Return), the status bar field does not recognize the line break during editing and freezes at the position of the last character of the first line entered. In contrast, when editing an existing multiline text, every line is recognized and the Paragraph/Row/Column indicator updates correctly. So while you're at it, maybe you could fix this one, too? (ich mein ja nur...)

The incorrect or delayed position info is a different problem. It is already present in older LO and OOo versions. I have written a new issue for it fdo#49059.

Ok, then this one I'm regarding as FIXED and changing the status accrodingly. For verification, an official build should be taken, I suppose?
