screenshot showing problem reading full text

Using LO under WinXP shows the format menu too small with the text inside too wide - so that parts of the text are not possible to read. Its not so easy to choose when not possible to read completely and not possible to widthen the window to make it readable completely. This was better in earlier versions.

Comment 2 Franklin Schiftan 2014-08-24 11:26:32 UTC
The same behavior here in LibO V (Win7-32) AND in LibO V (Win7-64).
Comment 3 Jochen 2014-08-24 12:01:42 UTC
Confirmed - using German LO
Comment 4 Regina Henschel 2014-08-24 13:25:00 UTC
See also https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=35225. The problem gets worse in LibreOffice when the style is shown in kind of preview.

Same here with OpenSUSE 12.3 64bit rpm Linux.

Problem apperas first in LO here. The preview of styles is introduced with LO 4.*. So no regression, never worked the right way.

Have set the version to the fist 4.*, which appears in the listfeld above.
