Description Guido 2013-05-30 18:53:56 UTC
Created attachment 80063 [details]
Empty rtf document created with wordpad

1. Open attached empty.rtf
2. Set indention to 1 
3. add tabstop to 3
4. Save document 
5. Reload document
expected: the document is as saved
current: the tabstop has moved to 4

If the indention is at 1.5 the tabstop moves to 4.5
You can reproduce the bug with a RTF from LO writer but you have to write and change the document twice.

Found in and
Version 3.4.3 works fine
Comment 1 Jorendc 2013-05-31 11:32:39 UTC
I can reproduce this using Linux Mint 15 x64 with LibreOffice

I'm going to mark this bug as Normal Medium:
* Medium: does prevent you to make high quality work
* Normal: default priority for medium bugs

@Miklos: ping :D

Kind regards,

Comment 6 BS Dev-Team 2017-02-03 12:00:29 UTC
We could reproduce this problem with the most recent LibreOffie Versions (see below for the conrete versions).

To reproduce:
* open attached Sample RTF-file with indentation.rtf (identation of the right part is correct)
* modify one character and "Save File as ..." somewhere
* close LibreOffice
* reopen saved file -> right part of the document has wrong identation (as shown in attached  Sample RTF-file create with LibreOffice.rtf)

We would highly appreciate a fix for this problem. Thanks!

Reproducable in:

Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group
