Description Joel VanderWerf 2012-06-14 11:20:41 UTC
Undo causes unexpected changes to text in Impress.

To recreate:

1. Open blank presentation.

2. Click in the main text area, where it says "click to add text"

3. Type the characters on the following line (<cr> is carriage return):


4. click in the first line of text between the first "a" and second "a".

5. Undo three times (either ^Z or Edit/Undo)

6. Text will become a single line: "aaabbbccc"

Note: Undo in LibreOffice Writer seems to work fine.

Repeatable on (x)ubuntu 12.04, x86 and x86-64.

REPRODUCIBLE with LibreOffice (Build-ID: 165a79a-7059095-e13bb37-fef39a4-9503d18), German langpack installed, on MacOS X 10.6.8 German.

Following the steps given in the original description, I get the same (wrong) result: a single line of text "aaabbbccc".

-> Changed Platform to "All", because bug is present not only on Linux, but also on MacOS X.

Could someone else please test Windows?

Also REPRODUCIBLE with LibreOffice 3.6.0beta1 (Build ID: 1f1cdd8), German langpack installed, on MacOS X 10.6.8 German. All the same.
