Description Zoltán Hegedüs 2014-02-24 11:31:31 UTC
At my default templates, the default tabulator position is 8 millimeters. At some documents this is 7.50 millimeters. At these documents, this is set back to 12.70 millimeters by oneself not always but regularly. This can cause data loss, so I choosed major severity.

Please, could you describe a detailed scenario to reproduce the problem?

Best regards. JBF

I can not describe this in more detailed. This error maybe not reproductible. My English is not perfect, maybe "by itself" is the correct form, not "by oneself". I edited the documents, this took some hours, and the default tabulator position went wrong.

Zoltan, I understand that: in your template, the setting of tab stop is not preserved. I could not reproduce the issue under Linux. Could you attach the template that shows the issue so I can try to do exactly the same as you? Thanks, set as need info - Sophie

The template remained unchanged (7.5 mm). I opened a big document, I edited it, and after some minutes, the default tabulator position is changed by itself: from 8 mm to 12.7 mm (1/2"). I restored it, and after some minites again, the position is changed by itself, newly to 1/2". There is an another error report from me, about the font of some characters: fully the same as this, in the same document.

In my previous comment, I exchanged 7.5 mm and 8 mm, sorry.
Comment 6 Joel Madero 2014-07-10 01:46:38 UTC
Please attach "big document" that you referred to. Please also try with a fresh profile (make sure to back up since you have your own templates)


Marking as NEEDINFO as we need more information and verification that it happens on a fresh profile.

Also please try running 4.2: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/

If you still can reproduce please set to UNCONFIRMED after you attach the big document that you see the issue. Thanks
