Description pschsch 2019-03-08 16:16:04 UTC
Created attachment 86649 [details] Characters don't be erased but are overwritten. OS: LinuxMint 19.1-64 Mate ApacheOpenOffice 4.1.6 or 4.1.5 cannot handle alterations of style in Writer or values in Extras | Options. This seems to be a problem of LinuxMint 19.x-64 (Ubuntu 18.04) The terminal reads (shortly after starting): WARNING **: 10:25:13.758: Unknown type: GailWindow Problems do not appear in LinuxMint 18.3-64 Mate (Ubuntu 16.04) or 17.3-4 Mate (Ubuntu 14.04). Attachment shows overwritten values of styles, fonts, fontsizes

Could you try our classical procedure: reset the profile. Detailed information can be found in https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?t=12426 And report back

I de-installed LibreOffice as "main application" for office works. Then I installed AOO 4.1.6 as "main application" (sudo dpkg -i *.deb). Additionally installation in parallels (for i in ./*.deb; do dpkg-deb -x $i . ; done) in folder in /home/<user>. Different user profiles (I altered the bootstraprc file for parallel version).

(In reply to oooforum (fr) from comment #5) > Sounds like issue 126980 If you refer to: ** (soffice:3079): WARNING **: 14:53:13.421: Unknown type: GailWindow I have seen this message for the past years every time I start AOO from shell. I doubt that it has anything to do with this particular issue.

I downloaded from https://ci.apache.org/projects/openoffice/install/ the latest current versions 4.2.0 and 4.5.1. and installed them on LinuxMint 19.1-64 Mate. Both versions show the same graphics fault as originally descripted.

I can confirm the behavior with all AOO 4.x.x Versions on Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon The issue is easy to reproduce: Open Writer Change style or font done Save dialog and selection fiels in sidebar are also affected Mint 19 uses Mint-y themes as Default. If you switch control panels to Mint-x or related themes it works. However, the issue also occurs on Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon if you switch to Mint-y themes. In both Mint versions you can restore the view by toggling to Page-View and back (but this won't work in Save dialog) No issue with AOO 3.4.1 and Mint-y themes. But if you start AOO 3.4.1 in a Terminal the "Gail-Window" warning is also shown
