If I use negative indent for the first line, this information is lost after restarting the program. I was able to test this only on Mac OS X - no idea whether this bug is also existing in other operating systems.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a textfield in draw and write something in the field.
2. Do a right click in the text field and choose "edit style...".
3. Go to the tab "Indents & Spacing" and choose a negative value for "first line". (e.g. -0.5cm for the first line, whereas "before text" is +0.5cm. Thus, the text starts with a margin on the left with 0.5cm, except the first line)
4. Click ok, save the file, close LibreOffice and open the file again.
Also the first line starts with an indent of 0.5cm - the information is completely lost (if you check again by right clicking into the textfield > edit style...)
The indent should be saved.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: 188.8.131.52 release
Thanks for reporting.
I found Bug 62176, this bug is reported against Impress (presentation). Although these are 2 separate components of LibreOffice, they share a huge amount of code. Therefore I mark this bug as duplicate of Bug 62176, and mark that bug for component 'LibreOffice'.
