Description Sharky 2013-07-04 03:43:23 UTC
Even with keep ratio checked, picture does not scale properly for height, resulting in a stretched out appearance.

Please supply sample file (along with screenshot of what is expected/unexpected if possible) & steps to reproduce that problem. Otherwise no one could confirm your report.

Then please mark this bug UNCONFIRMED

I am not sure what you are expecting.
This is the screenshot of your sample file in LibreOffice I don't think the image is wrongly scaled.

Scaled image in

This is a scaled image of your sample file, with keep-ratio option on.
This shows correct scaling I believe.

Tested with LO, OS X 10.8.4.

Looks good to my eyes.

Adjusting Importance to medium and normal and setting to WORKSFORME.

Sharky, could you post a screenshot of the issue happening and explain what is wrong? If you still see this feel free to re-open.

When I switch back to the current version of Writer ( this scaling problem also goes away. I.e, it only seems to show up in the latest prerelease.
Comment 12 ign_christian 2013-07-06 12:02:26 UTC
Hi Sharky, James has said on comment 5 that it's ok with Have you tested with that release?

You can only reopened this bug if you reproduce the problem with that release or later.

So we mark that NEEDINFO until you confirm
Comment 13 Sharky 2013-07-07 03:18:32 UTC
Unfortunately no, the latest prerelease I see is

It looks like all the cool kids have or something. It's not something I seem to be able to find (nightly builds?)
