Screenshot showing table inappropriately broken over page boundary
In some circumstances Writer tables are are split across a page boundary even though the Table style does not have "allow table to split across pages" checked, and the table is quite small (it could easily fit on the next page).
Empirically it seems related to borders being turned on for only some of the cells in the table.
Please view the attached screen-shot and the demo .odt file.

Screen shot showing table inappropriately broken over page boundary
For some reason bugzilla is not auto-detecting attachment file types correctly. I re-did the screenshot and manually specified png, but don't know how to make the .odt file appear as a writer doc, not a presentation (sorry)

test document with the right extension (.odt)
I renamed your test document as odt file instead of odg.

Not reproducible for me with version 184.108.40.206.0+ under Ubuntu 13.10 x86-64.
The file fits on two pages, but I do not have Carlito font installed.
Please could you create a test document with a more standard font ?
Best regards. JBF
Attached is an example using Times New Roman font exclusively.
The demo is also shorter, with the table broken between the first & second pages.
I'll also attach a screen-shot for this new example.
(BTW, is 220.127.116.11.0+ available for download anywhere? I didn't see it on the LO QA-builds page)

Attaching a document - is this not correct? I Don't see any split.

Hmm. We are seeing different results for some reason.
Joel, was the "Table Demonstation" pdf created from "test document with the right extension (.odt)"? With 18.104.22.168.alpha0+ I'm still seeing breakage.
Is there a way I can create a new "profile" with default settings? Maybe there is something in my installation which affects rendering. Or maybe fonts...
(but still, LO shouldn't break such tables regardless of font metrics).
Anyone have any ideas how to track down why Joel & I get different results?
I used 22.214.171.124 release not 4.3 build :)
I used your test document, just downloaded and printed to pdf.
For dealing with the profile: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile
and there is no 4.2.3, that must have been a mistake by JBF - perhaps 4.3 daily not 4.2.3
Hi, it is ok also for me using Version: 126.96.36.199
Build ID: 3d4fc3d9dbf8f4c0aeb61498a81f91c5b7922f13 and Ubuntu 13.10/Gnome 3.
I'm not sure but your problem may be because of section 1 being a subsection of section 3 that places a not visible space on the page and makes the table flow for you. Also the even distribution between columns may cause the flow of the two columns in section 3. Section 2 seems to have no influence and to be not useful too.
So nobody could reproduce - set as worksforme - Sophie
I tried the Times Roman demo again on 188.8.131.52.0+ and 4.3alpha and still get a table broken over a page boundary.
There has to be something in my environment (fonts? Options settings?)
which is different than the other testers. But I'm stumped for ideas
how to figure out what it is.
I tried deleting my profile (actually, renamed the profile directory $HOME/.config/libreoffice/4/user) but it made no difference.
BTW, a new profile directory was not created; is that normal?
I'm certain no libre* processes were running when the profile dir was renamed.
