Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-01-31 15:47:45 UTC
Steps how to reproduce  with "LibO rc   -  GERMAN UI / German Locale  [Build ID: 5991f37846fc3763493029c4958b57282c2597e)]"  {tinderbox: @6, pull time 2013-01-24  07:20(?)} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with User Profile automatically created form renamed /3 User profile used by

1. open attached sample.ods
2. click A1 (to try to modify rotation from 10° to 30° in an intuitive way)
3. Menu 'Format -> Cells -> Alignment - Text orientation
4. in pane 'Degrees' you see "10", click into pane right from Number 
   > Caret flashes behind 0
5. Backspace until caret reaches left end of pane
   Expected: Empty
   Actual: "1" remains in pane
6. Type "30" 
   > Now value is "301", aou will have to delete the trailing "1"

Same when you try to change rectangle rotation to "10°"

That's unintuitive. 

Old Drawing rotation allowed empty pane (and inserted "0" if you leaved the empty pane), that was more comfortable.

That worked fine in OOo 1.1.5, but broken in OOo 2 and later. so inherited from OOo!

This one might have impact to "Bug 60120 - UI: object rotation does not allow decimals and negative numbers"

I can confirm this behavior. Using LibreOffice rc2; Linux Mint 14 x64

Kind regards,

for me not reproducible with LO (Win 8.1)

But I experienced a different bug:
If I try to decrease the degree by using the arrow down button the degree switches to 0.

Does this issue still persist for you or anybody else with the latest release of LO?  Otherwise, we could maybe close this issue.
