hako - can you point to specific area where info is missing? Opening on my system, everything looks to be there but if you point out a specific text I can do ctrl + f and find it in Excel but not in Spreadsheet that would be great.
Comment 2 Joel Madero 2013-04-23 16:22:09 UTC
Also changing version to 3.5 as it's the earliest version mentioned to have an issue. 

Hako - please point to specific area of form that has problem, also "version" is the earliest version that the problem can be seen.

Thanks for helping us out

The problem shows when the file is opened by LO:

tab-1: the placement is different from MSOffice, the contents extends beyond the page margins

tab-2: additionally to the placement and margin issue, some check boxes do not show up in LO.

See attached screenshots.

Thanks for reporting.

I can confirm mentioned behavior using Linux Mint 15 x64 with LibreOffice

Kind regards,

Dear hako,

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 https://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
