Preferences Menue not scrollable, options cut off

The outer frame of the LibO Preferences Menue is not scrollable on Mac OS X 10.8.2.

In very long menue windows, the options located below the normal window size are not accessible. Window cannot be resized to try and access these. Scrollbar is missing.

It's hard to explain, please check attached screenshot, there you can see how the menue is cut off.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Launch LibO
2) Go to preferences
3) Go to Load/Save -> General. Here, it's most obvious, but there are others. E.g. in LibreOffice -> User Data the "Use data for document properties" is slightly cut off.
4) Try to scroll window to access the entries that are cut off

Current behaviour:
There's no scrollbar that would allow to access these entries, they remain cut off. Scrolling does not work.

Expected behaviour:
Scrollbar should be in the outer frame of the window to scroll down, scrolling should work to access these entries.

Best, Wiebke

Just noticed that I can't open the attachment in the browser ...
Save Link as ... works for me though. It's a .png file.

If you have problems opening, please tell me and I'll try if saving in another format works.

Best, Wiebke

The attachment’s MIME type was set to text/plain, but I’ve fixed it now :-)

Hi Wiebke,

thanks for reporting the problem. This seems to work correctly for me with the latest master build.

Build ID: 9fed8a5e4a4c45d6a08260e9480ca6b43254b120
TinderBox: MacOSX-X86_64@43, Branch:master, Time: 2013-08-29_07:14:27

Also fixed in (http://www.libreoffice.org/download/).

Can you confirm this? If so, I'd say this bug is status "WORKSFORME". If not please re-open.

Also you might want to update your OS to the latest iteration which is 10.8.4. That's what I used for my testing.

Find the master build here to test: http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/MacOSX-X86_64@43/

Concerning the MIME/type of the attachment: that is a known bug with bugzilla not correctly recognizing the attachment and already is filed in an existing bug.
