Description sworddragon2 2015-08-17 18:12:04 UTC
For example on calling MsgBox(ThisComponent.dbg_methods) from a macro the text in the appearing subwindow is too much so that the subwindow overflows and hiding the OK button and the rest of the text. I think if the text causes the subwindow to overflow there should appear scrollbars so that it is always possible to click the OK button and to make a look at all the text.

How can I eliminate confidential data from a sample document?
Thank you

I think attaching a document for executing this simple macro would be overkill. But here are the steps to reproduce:

1. Open Writer.
2. Go to the menu bar -> Tools -> Macros -> "Organize Macros" -> "LibreOffice Basic..." -> Edit.
3. Insert the line "MsgBox(ThisComponent.dbg_methods)" between "Sub Main" and "End Sub".
4. Click on "Run BASIC (F5)".

Reproducible with LO 5.0

Setting as new.
