Sidebar shows wrong values for spacing, right after opening a file. It affects both 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Open Writer and type some text
2) Set some paragraph spacing (doesn't matter which of them)
3) Save the file & close
4) Reopen the file
5) See the wrong values on sidebar (you can compare them with the ones from Paragraph dialog)
For some reason, It doesn't happen with values < 21 and if value = 30.

The situation is even worse with master (184.108.40.206.alpha0+ Build ID: d6b4644da2c74500aa5ddfe69c36fc1f987bce0d TinderBox: Win-x86@6-debug, Branch:master, Time: 2013-08-31_22:06:59)

I meant 0.21cm & 0.30cm.
Confirmed. Crunchbang 11 linux running v220.127.116.11 exhibits problems when setting Paragraph metrics using direct formatting via the Sidebar i.e., either the small ellipsis button adjacent "Paragraph" or by editing the displayed fields directly. These values appear to be reset erratically as indicated upon re-opening the file:
- 1.0pt set to 0.7pt (Before/After/First/Above/Below).
- 2.0pt set to 2.2pt (Before/After/First/Above/Below).
- 3.0pt set to 2.9pt (Before/After/First/Above/Below).
- 4.0pt set to 3.9pt (Above/Below) and 4.3pt (Before/After/First).
- 5.0pt set to 3.9pt (Above/Below only).
- 6.0pt set to 3.9pt (Above/Below) and 5.8pt (Before/After/First).
This happens not only "right after file open", but on every time the Properties pane is activated on the sidebar, e.g. after returning from Styles & Formatting pane. I wonder if this could be somehow related to bug 68508.
(This is an automated message.)
Setting priority to highest as this is a 4.1 MAB. This is part of an effort to make the importance of MAB reflected in priority too.
In 4.2, this distorts formatting: switching to Properties pane (from e.g. Styles and Formatting), the spacing units are both shown as 10 cm and indents are wrong, too -- and if I don't notice it and edit any of them, then the other spacing value or indent values actually get set to whatever they were showing.
Workaround is to move cursor to a paragraph with different style and back.
please retest against 18.104.22.168
if bug persists please move it to mab4.2 list since 4.1.x is EOL

still there, even with latest master.

It seems fixed with http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=9a410f9cedbce5276aea48479812ff68210712b0. At least the initial shown value seems correct. The values are however still a bit off when manually switching the unit after the document is open.

Thank you for your work, Maxim!
Any chance of backport to 4.4? :)

Sure, but please test it with 4.5 daily builds that have this patch, because I'm not sure it covers all possible cases.
Now also in 4-4:

Looks so much better with latest 4.5 daily build. Thank you for fixing this!
