Description Chris Elliott 2014-01-04 20:39:45 UTC
Problem description: When a comment box in a cell is displayed by moving the mouse over the cell, the comment box does not disappear completely when the mouse is moved into another cell. The right hand edge and top edge of the comment box remain on the screen. Clicking in a cell which displays these elements of the comment box forces a refresh and removes the remains of the comment box.

Steps to reproduce:
1. ....Right click in cell. Select 'Insert comment' (Should really be Insert/Edit comment!)Type text into comment box.
2. ....Click outside cell to remove comment box.
3. ....Mouse over cell and pause to display comment box, then move pointer away from cell. Comment box remains partly displayed on screen.

Current behavior: Comment box does not fully disappear

Expected behavior: Comment box disappears completely when mouse pointer is moved out of cell.

Operating System: Windows (other)
Version: release

More confirmation of comment tooltips not painting (or unpainting) properly.  As a result, visual artifacts are left behind.

Here is an example from LO http://i.imgur.com/nkudwdO.png

Tested on a common graphics chipset: Intel HD Graphics 4000
Test OS: Win 7 SP1 64-bit

Still an issue with LibO 5.0, using the official debs on Linux Mint 17.2 both with intel and nvidia (nouveau driver) video.

Comment 16 Chris Elliott 2019-02-11 10:37:34 UTC
Tested Feb 11 2019.
Bug still present. V (x64) Comment box in spreadsheet appears at set size. Move icon (four way arrow) appears, but box cannot be moved, only text in it selected. When comment is added, and cursor clicked elsewhere on the spreadsheet, box disappears apart from line marking right hand side of drop shadow on right of box. This line disappears when a screen refresh is forced by clicking in one of the cells containing int. Once added, the comment box cannot be moved or resized.
