Description Matthew Francis 2015-01-26 13:34:37 UTC
This bug is split from bug 51508
Reproduced on LO (Ubuntu 14.04, OSX 10.10) and (OSX 10.10)

When a text OLE object is inserted into Draw, its rendering is not correct after ending editing of the object

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a blank Draw document
2. Insert a text OLE object (Insert - Object - OLE Object - LibreOffice Text)
3. Without resizing (to avoid bug 51508), type a few lines of text
4. Open Format - Page - Area and select a coloured fill (e.g. "Light red")
5. Click outside the OLE object to end editing
6. Select the OLE object by clicking to show the bounds

Expected result
- The text is contained within the OLE frame

Actual result
- The text is shifted downwards from the displayed OLE frame and spills out of it (although the page background does not)

Dear Matthew Francis,

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 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

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 http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
