Problem description: 
In sheets with extreme small row hight of column width horizontal zoom factor is bigger than vertical one

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Sample document
2. change zoom factor from 200% to 50% in all 3 sheets
   Compare x/y width ratio for shapes and merged cells

In sheets "smallwidth" and "smallhight" view the shapes will become compressed horizontally
For extreme zoom levels the distortion of the merged cells area might differ from result for shapes: For zooms 100% and 50% in sheet "normalwidth" the distortion of merged cells area follows distortion of shapes (shown too narrow, becomes a square with x/y width = 1 more and more), but for zoom 25% and smaller the merged cells x/y becomes smaller again.
It seems that the effect only appears in sheets with extreme small pow hight or column width.

Strange side effect, migt be related or might be not:
If I click A16 in "smallwidth" (zoom 200%) and type an "a" (= cell edit mode), the caret and the "a" appear somewhere at A5. I do not know whether that problem is realated.

Dear Bugcruncher,

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

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

Warm Regards,
QA Team
