Description ign_christian 2013-05-31 06:57:49 UTC
Created attachment 80081 [details]
Sample file to test

After some searching, it looks like I did not find a bug like that would be my report. Please mark this as duplicate if anyone find similar bug reported before. 

Attached file contain 3 columns (A,B,C), each column have same content.
- Column A : "Wrap text automatically" disabled at all cells
- Column B : "Wrap text automatically" enabled at all cells
- Column C : "Wrap text automatically" only at cell C1, else no

Steps to reproduce bug:
1. Open that file & mark all columns A,B,C
2. Autofit width -> double click separator between column C-D
3. See that all columns behave differently 
-> width of columns A,B,C (respectively) : 1.45 cm , 2.66 cm , 0.66 cm

Autofit width behave unexpected if any/all cells contain text wrapping. Column C seems to autofit only considering number. (Test: change cell C2 with 100, then autofit width)

Another weird behavior: fill cell B10 with 1, then autofit width -> column B adjusted again to 0.55 cm

Still there in Version:
Build-ID: 2c39ebcf046445232b798108aa8a7e7d89552ea8

Observed the same data as before:
Column width after autofit A: 1.44 cm, B: 2.26 cm, C: 0.69 cm
Column width after B10 = 1 and autofit: A: 1.44 cm, B: 0.57 cm, C: 0.69 cm.

Behavior reproduced from LO 4.0 to master 6.0+. It was as expected from OO to 3.6.

Bibisected with 43all on Linux to range

This seems suspicious, has column widths, including Excel:

By Kohei, so I will not add to CC.

Dear ign_christian,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
