Comment 2 Matthew Francis 2015-04-07 01:05:46 UTC
To restate the reproduction instructions for this:

- Create a new Calc spreadsheet
- Open menu Format - Page
- Select tab Header - Edit...
- Click on Custom header - Text Attributes
- Set Size to 96
- "OK" to the Text Attributes dialog
- "OK" to the Header dialog
- Reopen "Edit..."

Actual result:

- When reopened, the Header dialog is not rendered correctly (too tall, buttons invisible)
Comment 3 Matthew Francis 2015-04-07 01:07:45 UTC
This seems to be a result of the UI conversion for the dialog
Adding Cc: to olivier.hallot@documentfoundation.org; Could you possibly take a look at this? Thanks

The fix was incomplete, it only affected the leftmost text edit. 

The rest has now been dealt with in a separate bug 97963
