Description Zoltán Hegedüs 2013-10-18 11:13:38 UTC
For example, I download a document what is a pony, but I want to learn from it, and I do not want to use it at the exam.

So, I must modify this size from 5 to 10, I must double the tab base size, and all the tab positions, at the all styles. If there are a lof of text parts what is formatted with tabs, I must double the condensing, etc. I must reformat all the tables so.

Naturally, I can export to pdf and print with doubled size. But if the width of the lines shold be bigger than the width of paper, this is not a solution. Some times the width of the lines must remain. A complex workaround: setting the columns, the width of the lines, the size of paper, for example, to 2/3 size of the paper, and printing with 1,5 times enlargement.

Sorry Zoltan but I'm not following at all what you are requesting. Please try to describe the enhancement a bit more with steps and example documents if appropriate and then set the bug back to UNCONFIRMED.

What part of the text do you not understand? Why?

what would you like to learn from the 'what is a pony' document?

Is there a means for us to see this 'what is a pony' document?

You seem to be making alot of changes to this 'what is a pony' document, so what exactly would you like us to do to make it easier for you to modify the document.

Unfortunately, we are not getting what you are asking for in this enhancement request. In order for us to get it, you need to be more clear on how libreoffice is acting and what you would like it to act like.

Enlarging like a lens: enlarging all measures. For example, the size of the font is 4 or 5 in a document, what contain tables formatted with tabulators, the table dissolves if i double only the size of the fonts: the size of tabulators must be doubled so.

"Pony": a short text with small letters, used by students to cheat at exams, tests. By the online dictionary: pony, rifle, crib, popper, gun, musket, crib notes, cheat sheet, cribs. Note that hungarian word "puska" has 2 different means, one of is "gun".

Dear Zoltan,

Is it possible for you to supply us a document, which we can test against, to see the enhancement that you wish to suggest.

Use any text document. Make half all the sizes in document: fontsize, default and custom tabulator positions, tables, pictures, etc. If required, make double the number of columns, for example, from 1 to 2. This will be the example document. The case: for example, there is a document with fontsize 5 and 6, what is very little. If I set the fontsize to 10 and 12, I must set it for each paragraph style separately, and the tables will fall apart (dissolve), including really tables and text formated with tabulators. The solution: enlarging like a lens: for example, doubling all sizes in one time.

@Zoltan - please actually attach a sample document. Please keep in mind that QA has thousands of bugs to deal with so even if you only cut out 3-5 minutes of work for us reproducing a document you're helping. Also then we can see the exact same document and the exact same issue vs. some other document.

Leaving in NEEDINFO - once you attach a document mark as UNCONFIRMED.
