At least reproducible back to release - updating version to reflect this.

 I have been able to confirm the issue on:
Platform: Bodhi Linux 2.2 x64
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + 
As I've been able to confirm this problem on an earlier release I am changing the version number as version is the earliest version that we can confirm the bug, we use comments to say that the bug exists in newer versions as well.

Marking as:

New (confirmed)
Minor - can look bad but really if you scroll the check boxes appear so it doesn't prevent high quality work per say.
High - looks quite bad + regression 

Keywords - regression

        Add new chooseCertificate method to XDocumentDigitalSignatures UNO interface.
        This method shows the certificate choosing dialog previously used in ODF
        signing and returns the selected certificate. For PDF signing support,
        we need to reuse existing CertifacateChooser class of xmlsecurity module.
        So the UNO api of ::com::sun::star::security::XDocumentDigitalSignatures is

Comment 3 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2013-06-21 19:52:37 UTC
the bisect in comment #2 can't be quite right,
actually it's possible to make the form controls disappear
even in 3.5.x versions and the oldest bibisect build.
(clicking in the header usually lets them disappear).

so far i've tracked it down to


in SwDoc::DoIdleJobs which seems to make the difference
between hiding and non-hiding...
