Textboxes in the latest 64-bit master build is huge, compared to the default font size. 

And also there is a weird behaviour, text alignment jumps from left to right, then returns to left eventually. 

Screenshot attached.

Yes, I can reproduce this using Mac OSX 10.8.3 and LibreOffice Version: Build ID: 7fbea4712774467fcf7edf535905f02c586ccfe

When I enter for example my name, the cursor is jumping in the field box. I can type correctly, but when I type the 3 first characters for example, my cursor jumps for a while to the front, until I type the next character (and then jumps to somewhere else in the field box).

Can not reproduce this behavior using LibreOffice Version (Build ID: 4c82dcdd6efcd48b1d8bba66bfe1989deee49c3)
TinderBox: MacOSX TDF Release, Branch:libreoffice-4-0, Time: 2013-03-26_15:52:16

Kind regards,

The behavior is "a bit less weird". Now the text don't jump inside the text field, but only the cursor is shown before the last character (although you can type *behind* it)... so maybe there is just a "-1" error somewhere.

Tested using Mac OSX 10.8.3 with own build: Version:
Build ID: 43c234b0481fe63b8c4823affad066c6362f506

Kind regards,

Two reported problems here. The first about huge heights is fixed with http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=0fcf74d203d97b7e829e72b7e55782d86a048802

Dunno what the second is all about, but I suggest splitting that off from this as a different problem and I'll take this one as the id for backporting the huge height fix to 4.1

That should make it look much better.
