Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-03-26 11:36:55 UTC
1) Open Impress
2) Select the textbox button in the drawing toolbar
3) Draw a textbox
4) Notice that the height set when drawing has minimize to the height of one line of text

This behaviour doesnt happen in Draw.

Comment 1 A (Andy) 2015-03-26 19:02:10 UTC
Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.

But I am not sure which behaviour is better.  

@Jay: Why would you prefer the DRAW solution?
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-03-27 06:46:40 UTC
Well its not only in draw that it works this way, it works this way in writer and calc, so impress is the odd one out. ;D
Comment 3 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-02-22 23:32:07 UTC
Also the "Fit Text to Frame" (.uno:TextFitToSizeTool) command found in the Text toolbar retains its height when drawing the textbox.

Something for the papercut list?

Doubt that but I might be wrong
Comment 12 Bayram Çiçek 2021-08-20 10:52:59 UTC
IMHO, it seems that it can be a papercuts bug.
adding this bug into my TODO list. I'll have a look at it asap.
