Slide missing first line ident in 4.0

The latest release has a regression (compared to 3.6.5) opening an Impress document with a negative first line ident results in a setting of zero, for all styles.  The attached document illustrates what I mean: if opened in 3.6.5, the first line has an indent of -0.6 cm, and the other lines have an ident of 0.6 cm, for both Outline 1 and Outline 2 styles.  However, in 4.0.0, only the 0.6 cm setting for all lines appears, and the first line ident is 0.0 cm for all styles.

This appears to be loading problem, because if I set the ident back to -0.6 in 4.0.0 and save, then re-open in 3.6.5, the setting is correct (i.e., 4.0.0 can use and set the setting).  However, opening again in 4.0.0 results in the 0.0 cm indent (i.e., 4.0.0 ignores the setting when the file is opened).

Possibly related is that if I set Outline 1 to have the correct first line ident in 4.0.0, the setting does not carry through to the other (linked) styles, whereas it does if I change that setting in 3.6.5.

The upshot is that I have numerous presentations that now have a slight shift in ident and consequently occasional unexpected (new) line wrapping, and this effectively makes 4.0.0 worthless for me unless I completely redesign thousands of slides.

In the event it is relevant, I'm using the Debian packages currently in experimental.

Indeed, I see the regression.

With bibisect make sure to include both the output after your last git bisect good/bad as well as the output of git bisect log :-D Thanks for bisecting this one!
Comment 4 bchemnet 2013-06-14 01:49:08 UTC
This bug persists in  Specifically, I have narrowed it down to the fact that styles convert all negative first line indents to zero when the file is loaded.  This is true only of styles; negative first line indents applied directly to a block of text remains upon save and load.  And positive first line indents in styles also are unaffected.

This can all be tested with a completely new file, simply by adding some text to a textbox and changing the formatting directly or via the default style, saving, and reloading.

good catch - duplicate of another bug. other bug has a bit more info and input so marking this one as a dupe even though this one was reported first.

Thanks bchemnet
