Description Gabriel Diosan 2012-07-07 21:48:49 UTC
Created attachment 63962 [details]
Screenshot of "Row" sub-menu overlapping the main menu.

Problem description: The "Row" sub-menu when right clicking in a table obscures the main menu.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a table.
2. Right click within the table and move the mouse cursor in the menu until you reach "Row"
3. The "Row" sub-menu obscures the main menu at certain times.

Current behaviour: The "Row" sub-menu obscures the main menu when right clicking within a table in certain situations. Note that this does not happen all the time, it tends to happen when there is limited screen space to the right of the main-menu that comes up when you right click in a table. (Screenshot attached)

Expected behaviour: The "Row" sub-menu should come off the main menu to the left or right (depending on screen space) at all times and not overlap the main menu.

Platform (if different from the browser): Tested on Lubuntu 12.04.

Hello Gabriel, *,
I can confirm this with LO Version (Build ID: e29a214) w/ installed Germanophone UI/Help under Debian Testing AMD64 ... :( Which graphics card/-chip do you use, and which driver? Also: Are you using 1024x768 or something different? I am using an NVidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430/integrated/SSE2 w/ nvidia-glx 302.17-3 under KDE 4.8.4-1 @1024x768.

Hi Thomas

I tested on an old Acer laptop with an Nvidia Geforce Go 6200. I was using Nvidia driver 295.40 in Lubuntu 12.04. The resolution of the display is 1024x768.
