Description Julien Nabet 2014-08-12 20:29:19 UTC
Created attachment 104524 [details]

Problem description: 
The first step of dialog wizard of Base is broken on MacOs (10.9.4) with master sources updated today.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open LO Base (do not open a Base file)
2. Look the UI

Current behavior:
The UI shows the 2 steps in left column but right panel is empty (see screenshot). It's French UI but even with English (en-US) UI it fails.

Expected behavior:
The right panel shouldn't be empty
Operating System: Debian
Version: Master
Last worked in: release

Just checked, it works with
Comment 2 Alex Thurgood 2014-08-13 08:18:17 UTC
Reproduced on my master 4.4.0 daily build.

In addition, along with other dialogs containing text, there is a huge amount of blank space drawn with the text.

These are due to the UI conversions that are ongoing - who is managing that ?
Comment 3 Julien Nabet 2014-08-13 08:24:59 UTC
Thank you Alex for having confirmed this one.

Palenik/Caolan: could it be  due to http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=803b9cb047958ecb9ad3e61c0e29a1466f59f1e1 "Convert DLG_DATABASE_WIZARD dialog to .ui" ?

BTW, I don't reproduce this on Linux (forget the wrong description, I had put Debian in the bug assistant forgetting I was on Mac for this one)

Also, there's no error/warning message on console (I also build in debug mode on MacOs) and it's a brand new profile since I regularly do:
"make clean && make postprocess.clean && ./g pull -r && make" to be sure there's nothing wrong due to previous wrong things.

Julien, the extra space problem also applies to at least the Java classpath archive dialog, the About dialog and others (haven't checked all of them). Currently, the about dialog takes up roughly a third of the horizontal screen estate on a 15" monitor - all of these seem related to some coordinate definition problem of the rectangle on which the text message is drawn.
Comment 5 Alex Thurgood 2014-08-13 08:57:04 UTC
Obviously, this is a separate problem from the lack of db wizard steps in the main dialog window - will open separate report.
Comment 6 Alex Thurgood 2014-08-13 08:57:50 UTC
However, current bug clearly a regression over 4.3 and 4.2.x
