Description Jared 2012-08-22 16:28:31 UTC
Problem description: When working within a table, or resizing a table

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Writer document and create a table
2. Format page to 2 columns, disabling "AutoWidth"

Current behavior:
Table spans the whole page width.

Expected behavior:
Table should move to the first (left) column, same as when the columns are created with AutoWidth.
This seems inconsistent with Version (Build ID: 4db6344) in which the table does adjust with width is manual.

It appars like disabling autowidth just borks columns in general. I'm opening a new bug to reflect this, I suspect that this will be fixed when that is fixed. If you agree please close this bug as a duplicate of the new


since that one covers a bit broader of a problem.

Thanks for pointing this one out, it's pretty serious so we'll get someone to fix it.

Yes, this new bug refers to the same issue.  Thanks for helping progress this with an example odt.
