Description Gregor 2013-08-12 14:42:49 UTC
Problem description: Cropping a picture sometimes gives a image that is stretched.

Steps to reproduce:
1. select an image that has been inserted into a Writer document
2. right click to bring up the context menu
3. press <p> (Picture) 
4. Press <Enter> to bring up the tabbed dialog choose "Crop"
Ascertain that the "Keep Scale" radio button is activated
 In rather rapid succession (or on a slow computer): 
5. Press <Alt+t> (Top)
6. Enter "1.8 "
7. Press <Enter> (this should be accomplished before the default units have been input by the application)

Expected behavior: the image is cropped 1.8 (default units) from the top and the proportions of the remaining image have changed accordingly.

What happens: The contents of the remaining portion of the image have been stretched to fill the previous boundaries of the picture.
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 3.5 all versions

As I've been able to confirm this problem I am marking as:

New (confirmed)
Minor - you really have to be moving pretty quick to see this. Also won't prevent high quality work, just slows it down a bit because you'd have to undo and fiddle to figure out what's going on.
Lowest - like I said, really hard to reproduce, you have to move real quick and no other user has reported a similar problem in nearly a year (or before you reported)

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

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 on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.6 or 5.2.3  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave 
a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

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)


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
