Screenshot with LibO 4.2.3

If I have multipage tables with raws splitted across pages, and in some cells I try to align the text to the bottom of the cell, the text won't jump to second page where the row bottom really is, but will remain at the bottom from the first page. The problem seems to be the same from NeoOffice 3.4.1 (based on OOo 3.x code) to LibreOffice 4.2.3

Still present in 5.4.3 (macOS 10.11.6). Tried to reproduce in 6.0 RC1, but program crashes immediately after opening any document... even a new one, but that's another problem.

Writer file showing problem with bottom alignment in tables spanning pages

Version: / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 85f04e9f809797b8199d13c421bd8a2b025d52b5
CPU threads: 2; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-GB (en_GB.UTF-8); UI: en-GB
Calc: threaded

This issue has still not been resolved after over 6 years! Open the attached writer file. Place the cursor in the blank cell and press "Align Bottom" (Table toolbar at botom of window).

EXPECTED RESULT: Cursor should move to the bottom of the cell on the next page.

ACTUAL RESULT: Cursor only moves to the bottom of the first page.

Dear Adriano Borgobello,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
