Description Samuel Mehrbrodt (allotropia) 2016-02-16 08:20:54 UTC
On Windows you cannot resize LO windows below a certain size - on Linux there is no such restriction. You can resize the window until is is only a 1px thin bar.

There should be a minimum size on Linux as well.

Yeah. NEW.

Caolan, is this a GTK issue?
Comment 3 Caolán McNamara 2016-02-29 14:42:47 UTC
Its probably a failure to set a min size via SetMinOutputSizePixel. Some backends might set the min size to the initial size if no other is set.

Its not immediately obvious to me what the min size of the application windows should be or where exactly to calculate and set it.

Also reproducible on:

Version: 7.3.0.0.alpha1+ / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: eec32be26d5d5805c1cb8cb53ce9702c04829819
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-AU (en_AU.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

And with gen VCL too:

Version: 7.3.0.0.alpha1+ / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: eec32be26d5d5805c1cb8cb53ce9702c04829819
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.4; UI render: default; VCL: x11
Locale: en-AU (en_AU.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

On Ubuntu 18.04.

This is not only an issue with resizing them manually to a size too small. Sometimes (not sure how to reproduce yet), the window opens in a minimal size, making it very had to find.
