@Markus: valid enhancement request or a wontfix?

Kind regards,
Comment 2 GerardF 2013-05-19 18:08:35 UTC
If i set the "minimum change" to 0.1 instead of 0.001, calculation occurs.
Comment 3 Joel Madero 2013-05-24 16:54:54 UTC
With the info in comment 2 I can confirm the behavior and thus the bug. Looks like the default of 0.001 creates problems but 0.1 and 0.01 work fine. 

Bodhi Linux x 64
Version release

New (confirmed)
Normal (can prevent high quality work under specific situations)
Lowest (iterations not common at all, and a workaround is available from comment 2)

** 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 
(5.2.5 or 5.3.0  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
