Description slumbergod 2014-08-29 02:06:52 UTC
LibreOffice Draw

Whenever you editing text in an existing text box then click outside the box to leave it, a new text box is created rather than the changes made in the existing one.
Comment 1 A (Andy) 2014-08-31 08:29:05 UTC
not reproducible with LO (Win 8.1)
Comment 2 ign_christian 2014-09-01 15:17:35 UTC
Hi.. Not reproducible in my test with LO - Ubuntu 12.04 x86

Please provide step by step procedure to see the problem, also inform your OS in detailed (perhaps problem spesific to a distro/DE).

You could also try resetting user profile.

Then change status to UNCONFIRMED after all information provided.

I am definitely still getting the behaviour (Xubuntu 14.04 64bit).
Unfortunately, it isn't doing it consistently so it is hard to reproduce :( When it starts doing it, Draw becomes unusable.

So far, the behaviour seems to occur with documents created in previous versions rather than newly created ones.

Will try resetting my profile since no one else is experiencing it.
Comment 4 slumbergod 2014-09-03 19:36:09 UTC
Resetting profile did not resolve the problem.

I'll try the 32bit version now. I've encountered issues with the 64bit versions in the past that are not present in the 32bit release.
Comment 5 slumbergod 2014-09-03 22:10:12 UTC
Wasn't able to get the 32bit version running. 

Given up, reverted to All problems gone.
