screenshots showing the bug for zh-CN, zh-TW and en-US.

Some of the style names within/under "Body Text" are not shown complete. This happens for zh-CN and zh-TW UI at least, but works OK for en-US UI.

Steps to reproduce:
Just open my attached screenshots (three screenshots in a single ODT file), which shows the comparison.

LibreOffice (I do not see this in the version field, so choosing instead, but in fact it shoule be Should be a regression against

OS: Fedora 20 X86.

Before click, style names show full name;
After click, style names are truncated.

Still reproducible in LibreOffice 4.3 beta1.

This do not happen in previous releases (in 4.1.* at least) so regression

screenshot showing the issue

Someone in the Chinese libreoffice QQ chatroom reproduced this bug behaviour in win8, libreoffice 4.2.4. 
I am attaching his/her screenshot, as he/she is not able to help confirm in the bug system (poor english)

He/she also reproduced this in linux mint 17, libreoffice 4.2.4.
I am also attaching his/her screenshot.

More info:
"jmadero" and "reporter_of_bugs" in #libreoffice-qa do not reproduce in zh_CN UI (while their OS language is not zh_CN).
So it seems this only reproduce in zh_CN OS while zh_CN/zh_TW UI is enabled.
Comment 7 Kevin Suo 2014-05-24 05:02:57 UTC
Marking as NEW, as at least two people in the Chinese libreoffice QQ chatroom can reproduce it in different OSs.
Comment 8 Kevin Suo 2014-05-24 05:08:16 UTC
Marking OS as ALL, as this behaviour is at least reproducible in ubuntu 14.04, win8, and Fedora 20.
Comment 9 Kevin Suo 2014-06-13 14:40:11 UTC
Corrected component to from "LibreOffice" to "Writer". All the bug tests are with regard to Writer.

Still reproducible with beta2 and

Actually it's not truncted. It's the highlight and transparancy isse.
See the number "9" in the screenshot.

Still reproducible with version.

Test document

- Set LibreOffice language to e.g. zh_CN (Chinese Simplified)
- Open document
- Open Styles and Formatting (F11)
- Select any of the entries under "正文" (the selection bounds are too big for those that appear in English, and too small for those that appear in Chinese)

    fdo#72125: GetTextWidth() can get very expensive.
    Let's just count an approximate width using a cached value when we have too
    many entries.

The UI for "Styles and Formating" in version is changed to a new one.
In this version this bug behaviour does not exist any more.
