1. Open attached sample file which created with MS Office -> see that numbers on column B overlapping borders
2. Choose & click any cell on column B (B4 - B22)
3. Click 'Align Left' on toolbar -> see that cell value moves to the right (vice versa)
Using LO 18.104.22.168 (Win7 Home Premium 32bit)
See also Bug 56678
This bug still happen on LO 22.214.171.124, not only XLSX file but also XLS & ODS.
Seems that LO wrongly read cell with number format: (1.234)
Format code: _(* #.##0_);_(* \(#.##0\);_(* -_);_(@_)
Change version to 126.96.36.199 (oldest known version), tested on Ubuntu 12.04 32bit
I do not see the overlap (step 1) in LibreOffice 3661, 4042 and 4101 on Ubuntu
I do see the movement with clicking left align repeatedly (step 3).

Screenshot from LO 188.8.131.52
Hi Cor Nouws, thanks for testing.
My previous description lacks of details. I try to explain more: (see screenshot)
- Cell B4 - B22 are center aligned (shown on the button highlighted)
- Click Align Left on any of the cells will move the value to the right
- Click Align Right on any of the cells will move the value to the left (that should be correct position)
I've just checked with OOO 3.3.0 (Win XP) that behavior not occured (correct alignment). I'll try again after resetting user profile.
After resetting user profile on LO 184.108.40.206 (Win7 32bit), I experience same behavior with you on comment 3.
Values correctly positioned with Align Center button highlighted. But clicking Left or Right alignment repeatedly didn't change alignment. That result is the same if testing attachment from Bug 66089 (not only on .xlsx, also on .xls).
Strange..that behavior not happen on OOO 3.3.0
> Values correctly positioned with Align Center button highlighted. But
> clicking Left or Right alignment repeatedly didn't change alignment.
Sorry..clicking Align Right will move value a bit to the right.
Same behavior on LO 220.127.116.11 (Ubuntu 12.04 32bit) after resetting user profile.
So the original bug description has changed, what should we do with this bug report? Change the summary/description or open new bug report ?
ign_christian: I think it's fine to keep this bug, maybe adjust the title accordingly.
I can also confirm Cor Nouws findings: File looks fine in LO 18.104.22.168 on OS X 10.8.4. But alignment is off when playing with Left / Right alignment button.
Setting to NEW.

If that only for QA, so that's not for me. Since I only an ordinary user, & don't have such qualification as a QA guy :)
After observing Bug 66089, I found same cause for this problem: "Use printer metrics for text formatting" enabled.
It begins since LO 3.6.x until 126.96.36.199.
But if we disable "printer metrics", alignment not working at all on cells B4:B21.

So it should be marked as duplicate
> But if we disable "printer metrics", alignment not working at all on cells
With Tools>Options>LibreOffice cal>General - "Use printer metrics for text formatting" disable I don't see any bug. LibO is trying to do its best with this format:
_(* #.##0_);_(* \(#.##0\);_(* -_);_(@_)
You set alignment center, while in the same time you fill with space left part of the cell "_(* ". So your cells appear right aligned because LibO adds as much as possible spaces characters on the left.
You must also be careful with some points:
- decimal and thousand separators are different according to the language indicated in Format > Cells > Numbers. So a dot or space in your language may be a different separator in another language, making confusion. Moreover, XLSX does not save the language, so your file open differently according to the language used by user.
- there is 4 alignment positions: left, center, right or default. Default is right for number and left for text. So clicking on left/center/right alignment buttons will activate default alignment or force a specific alignment.
As I do no see alignment problem with Version: 188.8.131.52
Build ID: 00m0(Build:2)
Locale : fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8)
on Linux OpenSuse 13.2
I close it as duplicate. If you do not agree, please feel free to set it at NEW again and explain what should be expected.
