Screenshot showing wrong dropdwon area size

Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:
(UI scaling should be 100% and Find Toolbar Locked
from last session)
1. Open empty new writer document with
2. Menu {Tools ► Options ► View ► Scaling = 200%  ► ok}
   » UI elements size increases, looks horribly ugly
   BTW: is lost limitation to scaling = 130% intended?
3.  Menu {Window ► New}
   » UI elements now look more or less fine, but 
     Character size dropdown in Standard toolbar still has old
     small size 100%
4. Menu {Tools ► Options ► View ► Scaling = 80%  ► ok}
   » UI elements size decrease
    Bug: Dropdowns will have kept old 200% size
5.  Menu {Window ► New}
    Bug: Everything in UI has become smaller except 
         Character Size dropdown
6. Menu {Tools ► Options ► View ► Scaling = 81%  ► ok}
   » Now also Character size dropdown will have a small size

Already broken in 4.3, seemed more or less ok with 4.2

Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release
Last worked in: release

I repro step 4, but in all the steps the character size dropdown is not exceptional.

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

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

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
