Document for demonstrating the bug

I have a table (happens with any other object as well) that is surrounded by a Caption box. The object inside is set to have relative width 100% so that it fills the caption box entirely. Keep ratio is also checked, so that any resizes don't alter the ratio of the object. The attached document shows an example of this.

Now, to reproduce the problem:
Right click the table (not the surrounding margin, only the table).
Select Object...
Uncheck “Relative” (the one pertaining to Width)
Notice that the value under “Height” was changed to be equal to the “Width” one and if you click ok the object becomes deformed. This should not be the case. The "Relative" check box should toggle between % value and actual size next to the corresponding dimension (width or height).

[minor observation:
Also, if you keep checking and unchecking “Relative”, you will notice that the Width keeps getting smaller (I see it in centimeters, and it gets smaller by increments of 0.01 after a few checks unchecks)

Dear Alexander Karatarakis,

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 with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

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) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
