PDF version showing the expected layout

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #96326 +++

LibreOffice 5.1.0.3 running on Windows 7 64-bit.

RTF version of document as an example: "Kotimaan näyttelyilmoittaumislomake" attached, also available at site http://www.kissaliitto.fi/lomakkeet/nayttely

The main problem on those checkboxes is that both DOC and RTF make them bigger than on the PDF version leading to incorrect layout, i.e. text on two rows instead of one. Just look at the screenshot attachment, I've marked with red arrow that "cm" moving to next row because of that too big checkbox problem.

Attached RTF and PDF versions of the same document for comparison as well as a screenshot showing RTF, PDF and DOC side by side.

Bug 96326 has been fixed by Miklos
can you retest with recent 5.2.0 daily builds and tell if we can close this one too?

LO 5.2 RTF & DOC vs PDF screenshot

Screenshot of the same document's RTF and DOC versions at LibreOffice 5.2 nightly 2.3.2016 on Windows 7 SP1 64-bit vs. PDF version showing too big checkboxes on RTF and DOC leading to incorrect layout pointed by red arrows. Red boxes located beside and under selection boxes are identical size with the RTF and DOC version and showing those to be bigger thant on PDF.

Also several other layout problems showing on that screenshot:
- RTF version having too narrow table (grey box) at the bottom of the page causing text to split on two lines, when compared to one line at PDF and DOC
- DOC version having incorrect table cell border spacing leading to all sort of layout problems, compare to correct layout on RTF and PDF. See red arrows.
- RTF has incorrect horizontal alignment for some tables moving them too much to left when compared to PDF and DOC
- DOC version incorrect vertical alignment on some of those boxes at the bottom of the screen leading to overlapping and unreadable mess.

Checkboxes still too big on RTF and DOC, when compared to PDF version. Also LO 5.2 nightly still having several other layout problems on that document's RTF and DOC versions. Explanations on the description for the new screenshot showing RTF. PDF and DOC side by side at the same zoom level.

As with bug 98199, I see the line-wrapping in LO when the RTF (attachment 123123 [details]) is opened, but the checkboxes appears to be *checked*, whereas the example rendering (attachment 123121 [details]) has unchecked checkboxes.
Regardless of additional bugs in the document, the checkbox appears to be displayed larger, so
Status -> NEW

When you say "the PDF version", do you mean the PDF generated by MSO or by LO? Using LO to export the RTF to PDF doesn't seem to change the size of the checkbox.

One problem per bug, please. Feel free to cross-reference them, but short and sweet bugs means that QA can easily test each problem.

I mean, when compared to the PDF version, which is available on the web site http://www.kissaliitto.fi/lomakkeet/nayttely

Also Microsoft Word viewer 2003 shows checkboxes correctly, when looking at RTF version.

Compare PDF vs DOC vs RTF at LO 5.3.2 screenshot

At this screenshot taken with 200% view too big checkboxes at DOC and RTF versions shows clearly, when compared against PDF version. On the DOC version that leads also to incorrect text layout because "cm" does not fit any more to the same line. Interestingly RTF does not suffer from this, even though checkboxes appear to be similar size at DOC and RTF versions.
Comment 10 Ari Latvala 2017-07-30 08:48:36 UTC
Problem still exist on the latest LO 5.4.0.3 at Windows 10 64-bit Creators update. When checkbox i.e. on DOC-version is 9 points, in RTF version it is 12 points. Attached checkboxes.JPG screenshot comparing DOC on left and RTF at right side from astutusopimus_15.doc and astutusopimus_15.rtf, both attached as well.

RTF -version having too big point size for checkboxes
Comment 14 Ari Latvala 2018-06-07 05:33:48 UTC
To be more specific about the problem(s): On RTF version the biggest problem with checkboxes is wrong font type and size. Font should be Arial 9, not Times New Roman 12.

DOC version does not have the font type and size problem, so it is better. However  both DOC and RTF still show too big checkboxes when compared to PDF version even with the correct font and size. This is described on Bug 98199.

Problem still valid on LO 6.1.3. BOth RTF and DOC version have problems with checkboxes but they are different.
Comment 17 Ari Latvala 2019-02-12 07:33:29 UTC
On LO 6.2.0.3 for 64-bit Linux checkboxes on the left have wrong font and point size but when checkbox is in the middle of the text, it has correct font and point size.
