before footer is on.

How to reploduce:

01. [Tools]-[Options]-[Language Settings]-[Languages]-[Enhanced Language Support]-[Enabled for Asian languages] is on.
02. [Tools]-[Options]-[LibreOffice Writer]-[General]-[Use square page mode for text grid] is on.
03. [Format]-[Page]-[Page]-[Orientation]-[Landscape]
04. [Format]-[Page]-[Page]-[Text direction]-[Right-to-left(vertical)]
05. [Format]-[Page]-[Text Grid]-[Grid]-[Grid (lines and characters)]
06. [Characters per line] is [34]. It is correct. (screenshot1)
07. click OK

When header/footer turns enable, characters per line decreaces from 34 to 32.
But in menu, still remains 34. It is not correct. (screenshot2)

Confirmed with:
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

I enabled header/footer in Page Style window header/footer tabs - got 29 characters per line. On Text Grid tab Characters per line value is unchanged - 34.

So lets rephrase the summary to be more meaningful and mark as NEW.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.5 or 5.1.2 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

- Update the version field
- Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
- Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 

1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 

3. Leave a comment with your results. 

4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
