Works with LibO 3.4.5 (and Word 2007). Tested on Windows XP.
Doesn't work with LibO 3.5.3 (problem with table => 2 pages instead of one etc.) => REGRESSION

It has been pushed to "master":


fdo#49501 RTF_MARGL/R/T/B should also set the current margin
Comment 4 Miklos Vajna 2012-05-09 03:24:43 UTC
Fixed in master, closing - will request cherry-pick to  -3-5 a bit later.

Tested with LOdev 3.6 (master - 18-May-2012 02h44 x86@6-fast; Build ID: 8b1d29b) and with LibO 3.5.4 RC1 under Windows Vista 64 and Windows XP.

It doesn't work. (It works with LibO 3.4.5 and Word 2007)

Hi s-joyemusequna,

Ah, indeed - I only read your comment saying the margins are incorrect; the "Contractor Weekly Time Sheet" string is still not a single line. Could you please open a separate bug for that issue? Would be confusing to handle that in this bug, which talks about margin issues, fixed already in 3.5.4.

(So in short please reopen this only in case the doc starts to have 2 pages again.)


Comment 9 s-joyemusequna 2012-05-30 04:21:01 UTC
Hi Miklos,

The document *has* 2 pages for me, the last one is empty, probably due to improperly formatted "Contractor Weekly Time Sheet". Tested with LibO 3.5.4 RC2 and LOdev 3.6 (master - 23-May-2012 03h12 x86@6-fast; Build ID: 7e65666) under Windows Vista 64 and Windows XP.

I did never say the margins were incorrect (you probably meant bug 49413 ?).

Migrating Whiteboard tags to Keywords: (filter:rtf)
Replace rtf_filter -> filter:rtf.
