A typical file that I can't unmaximize

Problem description: Recently LO has stopped unmaximizing files. That is, if the file window is maximized, there is no way to change its size. Neither clicking on the upper right plus sign nor hitting alt-F5 will do anything. This is definitely a bug. There's no problem about minimizing the file.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Maximize file
2. Try to unmaximize

Current behavior: Nothing happens

Expected behavior: Window size becomes adjustable 

Operating System: Linux (Other)
Version: release

I highly doubt that a file will cause maximization problems (that’s handled by window managers — what desktop environment do you use?).

Unless you actually meant to refer to per-document zoom — is that what you mean?
Comment 2 sivin 2014-09-07 15:22:02 UTC
I doubt it too, but at least you have it if nothing else will reproduce the bug. The fact is that some files don't show this problem.

I'm using Linux Mint 17 with Mate.

I suspect the problem may have to do with the fact that I use a Thinkvision 24" monitor under the built-in graphics of an AMD A8-3850 2.9GHz quad-core CPU
in portrait mode. I suggest someone who has such a monitor try it.

It can't be because of your monitor, but let's tackle this in another way: can you create a live USB of some other distro that ships LibO by default (Ubuntu maybe) and try your problematic file with it?
You might also try Mint MATE live on some other machine and see, if you can reproduce the problem. This way we can see, if it's because of MATE.
