Tested in, same problem

We have a tool that export a lot of Text-Shapes into a draw document.
So if there are a lot of this, some Text-Shapes may be very small.
We have set the property "Text fit to shape", but the Text doesn't really fit to shape, it will be smaller oder bigger. 

It can be seen in the attached document.

The Text-Shapes are in the top left corner of the document.

Can you attach the tool?

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information.
Comment 2 mmaurer 2015-10-01 11:53:37 UTC
Sorry, I cannot add the tool, but I can give some Information:

We are doing this in Java.
We are creating an XTextShape and setting following properties:

TextAutoGrowHeight -> false
TextAutoGrowWidth -> false
TextLeftDistance -> int value
TextRightDistance -> int value
TextUpperDistance -> int value
TextLowerDistance -> int value
CharColor -> RGB value as int
FillColor -> RBG value as int
FillTransparence -> short value
LineTransparence -> short value
Size ->

Hope this can help you

Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from ?
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.

The two Shapes (with the same properties) in the document still have the problem.
Comment 5 Buovjaga 2017-01-31 11:00:54 UTC
Ok, I will set to NEW, but with lowest priority. If you provide sample code, priority can be raised.

Dear mmaurer,

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:

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

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

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
