The description in strings (sorry the short ID didn't show for these on Pootle, they follow after 'DFrQ')
doesn't correspond with the actual functionality, ie. these are not used to fit text to frame, but actually the opposite, to resize object to the size of text.
For the correct description, take a look at 'mOdo' and 'i_NI'.
No idea what you are talking about:
What LibO version?
In what LibO application?
Please cite the wrong text.
How should it be better?
Don't know why you are asking, everything except the LibO version (since it's there like that forever, ie since OOo) is in the first post.
Resizes text in a drawing object with respect to the borders of the selected object.
Specifies, if the size of a drawing object should be adjusted to fit the size of entered text.
<ahelp hid="SVX_TRISTATEBOX_RID_SVXPAGE_POSITION_SIZE_TSB_AUTOGROW_WIDTH">Resizes the text to fit the width of the selected object.</ahelp>
should be the same (except the tag) as string 'mOdo', ie
<ahelp hid="SVX_TRISTATEBOX_RID_SVXPAGE_TEXTATTR_TSB_AUTOGROW_WIDTH">Expands the width of the object to the width of the text, if the object is smaller than the text.</ahelp>
<ahelp hid="SVX_TRISTATEBOX_RID_SVXPAGE_POSITION_SIZE_TSB_AUTOGROW_HEIGHT">Resizes the text to fit the height of the selected object.</ahelp>
should be the same (except the tag) as string 'i_NI', ie
<ahelp hid="SVX_TRISTATEBOX_RID_SVXPAGE_TEXTATTR_TSB_AUTOGROW_HEIGHT">Expands the height of the object to the height of the text, if the object is smaller than the text.</ahelp>
I explained needs by PM to khagaroth.
I think we are talking about Help contents I found in Wikihelp under a.m. address?
My results with "LibreOffice 126.96.36.199" English UI/ German Locale [Build-ID: f8fce0b] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) (under Text (To access this command... Choose Format - Text- Text tab) :
"Resizes text in a drawing object with respect ...":
There is no such text, may be reporter tested an obsolete LibO version
The rest still tells me nothing, still NEEDINFO
Nope, the text is not outdated. If you searched in the offline help and didn't find it, that's normal, search in offline help files is broken and often doesn't find things that are definitely there.
To get this specific help, create a text object in draw, open its context menu, select Position and size and click the Help button on the position and size tab. The online version of this is on http://help.libreoffice.org/sdraw/cui%3AMetricField%3ARID_SVXPAGE_POSITION_SIZE%3AMTR_FLD_POS_X?Language=en-US&System=WIN&Version=3.6#Adapt .
The correct wording can be found on the help page you already tried, ie for "Format - Text - Text", ie http://help.libreoffice.org/sdraw/cui%3ATriStateBox%3ARID_SVXPAGE_TEXTATTR%3ATSB_AUTOGROW_WIDTH?Language=en-US&System=WIN&Version=3.6#bm_id3154230 .
Now we are coming closer to the roots of the problem. I did some tests additional tests with 'Format -> Position and Size' (until now I only checked 'Format -> Text') and found several inconsistencies and also the intentional reason for this bug report.
The Help texts here are definitively wrong and should be replaced by the ones used for
Help for 'Format -> Text - Text - Fit width to text'
Help for 'Format -> Text - Text - Fit height to text'
I wonder whether there exist functions for what the current texts for " Format - Position and Size - Fit ... to text" would match. I only know similar
'Format -> Text - Text - Fit height to text'
'Format -> Text - Text - Adjust to contour' where font size will be modified, but that's not really the same. It looks as if the current texts can be deleted after they have been replaced in Help?
Do you agree with my proposal for soulution?
Do you have a more powerful tools to find out whether the complained texts are used somewhere else?
I should have mentioned that I observed all that with "LibreOffice 188.8.131.52” English UI/ German Locale [Build-ID: f8fce0b] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit).
As reporter expected: old bug, already in OOo 3.1.1
