Description rlk 2014-10-04 19:11:21 UTC
Applying conditional formatting changes the row height (specifically, adds some margin to the top of the cell).

My default style is defined as

Liberation Sans Narrow + 8pt + Automatic + Centered vertically + Automatic + FALSE + TRUE + Left margin: 0.03inch, Top margin: 0.0inch, Right margin: 0.03inch, Bottom margin: 0.0inch + White, Transparent.

I have defined a style named Challenge which is linked with Default and defined as

8pt + Left margin: 0.03inch, Top margin: 0.0inch, Right margin: 0.03inch, Bbottom margin: 0.0inch + RGB(191, 152, 229), Not Transparent

If I apply conditional formatting to a range of cells, where a cell that passes the conditional formula is set to style Challenge, all of the rows with cells in that range get an extra pixel or two of top margin above the text (regardless off what condition applies within the cells).

If I apply the formatting manually, or by use of STYLE() within formulas, this doesn't happen: the cells retain their correct height and margin.

I've observed this before with different style settings.

I can change the row height back to 0.1" (from the 0.11" it was changed to) manually.  However, as soon as I enter something into one of the cells covered by the conditional formatting, the row height goes back to 0.11".

Test case

Enter 10000 into a1626, and watch the row height increase from 0.1 to 0.11"
Comment 5 ign_christian 2014-10-06 04:05:40 UTC
Maybe related to Bug 34552, especially which shows problem with LO import / file load changing row height.

Attached file shows -almost- correct height while opened with AOO 4.1.1 portable under Win7 x86. Row height comparison (with AOO 4.1.1):
- initial height of cell A1626 : 0.28 cm
- after doing comment 4 : 0.29 cm (same with other cells processed by CF before eg. cell A1625)

With LO portable and, initial height of cell A1626 is 0.25 cm.
Comment 6 rlk 2014-10-06 12:35:44 UTC
The symptoms don't sound like it.  The issue does not appear related to load or import; it's specifically related to conditional formatting (if I apply the same style via the style menu/F11 or with STYLE() the row height is correct).
Comment 7 raal 2014-10-19 06:48:53 UTC
I think conditional formatting is not applied. Condition is AND(N($D1626)>0;MONTH(N($D1626))=3), for value 10000 this condition is FALSE. Parts of condition N($D1626)>0 is TRUE , MONTH(N($D1626))=3 is FALSE. Function AND returns TRUE if all arguments are true.
Tested with LO Version:, height 0,25cm changed to 0,45cm (default value).
Comment 8 rlk 2014-10-19 14:54:43 UTC
Correct, but conditional formatting applies to the cell range.  Entering something into a cell in the range results in the height changing, whether or not the condition is triggered.
Comment 9 raal 2014-10-20 09:56:10 UTC
I can confirm with LO  4.3.2, WIN7.When I delete condition then bug doesn't occurs.
Comment 10 rlk 2014-11-01 15:54:54 UTC
Workaround: if I _manually_ set the row height to 0.1" (as opposed to Optimal Row Height), it stays at 0.1".

Comment 12 rlk 2015-12-25 23:54:18 UTC
I'm still observing that when I enter something into A1626 that its height changes, but in this case from 0.1 to 0.11 inch.  This may be due to bugs 77592 and/or 83568, so I cannot say thatt this bug is either fixed or not.
Comment 13 rlk 2015-12-26 01:22:21 UTC
Comment 12 is wrong: it changes from 0.1 to 0.18 because of the two other bugs listed.

Can't meaningfully test in 5.1RC either because of said other bugs blocking this.

Can't meaningfully test in (on Linux openSUSE RPMs).  See comment 13 for explanation; it's blocked by other bugs.

Opening the test case with LO its crashing LO and with master there is a core dump

Can't meaningfully test in, because of reasons noted in comment #13.
