Description Antanas 2015-02-10 21:11:52 UTC
create new desired LO file (writer, calc, draw or impress),
insert a picture while sidebar is visible,
select a picture,
drag sidebar border to narrow/widen it.
sidebar starts vibrating, the LibreOffice window turns grey and not responding.
Same behaviour using Unity and LXDE.

Can't reproduce on:

* Version:
* Build ID: de093506bcdc5fafd9023ee680b8c60e3e0645d7
* locale: it_IT
* OS: Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS x86_64

What are your setting under View -> Zoom?
Are you using a fresh user profile? See https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/UserProfile

Changed state to NEEDINFO
Comment 3 Antanas 2015-02-11 13:42:17 UTC

thank you for the responce.

Two more conditions for bug reproduction:
+ LO GUI language Lithuanian lt_LT (With English GUI language (default) there is no bug)
+ drop-down "Graphic" in the sidebar should be expanded.

Tested with fresh user profile too.
Different View>Zoom options has no impact.

Hi Antanas,

Tested with lt interface but I can't reproduce. 
In version LibreOffice uses OpenCL. What about your graphics card? Mine is an "Intel® Ivybridge Mobile" and I'm using Gnome desktop.
Comment 5 Antanas 2015-02-11 16:53:32 UTC

I'm experience this bug on four different hardware including those VGAs –
Mobile Intel® GM45 Express
Intel Mobile 945GM
ATI Radeon 3470 256MB SH PCIe Card.

Waht is in common for all mentioned cases it is installation from "LibreOffice Packaging" team ppa.

Not reproducible Windows 7 sp1, 64-bit en-US nVidia GTX-260
Build ID: de093506bcdc5fafd9023ee680b8c60e3e0645d7

But, not able to test with a lt-LT localization on Windows.
Comment 7 Marina Latini (SUSE) 2015-02-12 08:52:26 UTC
can you try to use TDF official packages?
You can install multiple versions of LibreOffice in parallel. 
See https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel/Linux

You can download the packages from http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ or grab them directly from here: http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/stable/4.4.0/

Please, from the affected LibreOffice, can you copy and paste the informations reported on 
Help->About LibreOffice. (Version, Build ID and Locale)

and the output of the command: lsb_release -a

> Antanas,

Yes. I just did a try with official packages (both main and Lithuanian UI) – no joy. The bug still there.
(Additionaly got a Windows 7 machine and installed official Win package. Using lt_LT GUI resizing sidebar produces no buggy behaviour.)
