Description bram.wayman 2013-02-28 20:05:54 UTC
The subject line says it all. Please see the attached document. When I open this file, all the colored bars appear on top of each other at the bottom of the page text area; when I call up the print preview and then close it, they appear normally again.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

Hello bram.wayman,

I confirm the behavior you describe. The text area is anchored to Page while the others are anchored to paragraphs. For me, since a long time, we cannot mix the anchors without this issues. I don't know why. Perhaps is it time to fix this very old bug. The surprise here is to refind the correct behavior by preview. I join a workaround to show this is the case. I did some changes to your document. I set text area anchored to paragraph I get by repeating the last blank one down to the text area. That's all. I know this not very clean but this work.


@Brenda: You can download this text/plain document by your "Save as" of your navigator. You will get correct .odt document by this way.

Dear bram.wayman,

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

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

Warm Regards,
QA Team
