Description Robert 2014-08-05 21:29:54 UTC
Resizing the "Manage Names" pop-up vertically increases the space between the "Add Delete" and "OK Cancel Help" buttons with extra space, rather than the size of the list-box containing the named ranges. Also, the "double" space between the list-box and "Name" entry field could be reduced to a single space to allow more list-box data to be displayed.

1 issue = 1 report, please separate the second issue into a new report. Also when reporting please stick with the following format:

Enumerate steps to reproduce:

Observed Result:

Attachments: Attach documents or screenshots to demonstrate where appropriate.

*We have to triage thousands of bugs, this make volunteers very happy when we can just quickly go through steps.

Next: Please always include your operating system and version of LibreOffice

That being said:
Bodhi Linux 2.4 - E17
LibreOffice 4.4 built August 7, 2014

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Spreadsheed
2. Left Click on down arrow in "Name Box"
3. Dialog pops up - expand vertically

Observed: Distance between buttons and list box expands
Expected: List Box itself expands

Marking as:
Medium - seems like this might benefit more people and seems very functional

Got an email about this bug being assigned to someone, so tried it again, and is now

Version: (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 8a45595d069ef5570103caea1b71cc9d82b2aae4
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 6.1 Service Pack 1 Build 7601; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: en-GB (en_GB); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

working as it should work. Only still relevant part of the original bug report is the somewhat excessive(?) space between the list-box with names and the "Name:" label below it.
Comment 3 Andreas Heinisch 2021-04-21 08:05:38 UTC
The resize now works as intended, but in the space between there is a hidden label with the text "Select a named range or named formula from the list to modify its properties." which creates the space.

I have to check, if we decide to show or remove it completely.
