Reproduced on Linux with beta2. It's as if the whole document were stretched vertically by a factor of 2. Notice that three of the ordered list of remarks have numbers which are incorrectly a much larger size than the others, too. I bet a lot of this can't be addressed for 1.1rc, but perhaps at least the spacing could be corrected?

MRU->CMC: The document grid (from the CJK support) is activated after import. When selecting the whole text and disabling "snap to grid" in the paragraph format, the document looks much better. Is it possible for you to find out why the grid is activated or should we better get the unprotected version of the document? Either the page borders left/right are wrong.
Comment 6 caolanm 2003-06-04 10:34:50 UTC
Hmm, there is a grid enable option property for "lines only" for the winword sections seen by the filter, and the paragraph property is set for "snap to grid". I can't see the menu options for the page setup to confirm that this is being imported correctly or if it's disabled somehow. Perhaps word and writer have different ideas as to how to render snap to grid paragraphs inside tables. Or perhaps the values for the grid are wrong somehow. cmc->waiterevo: Could you attach an unprotected version of this document, it would really help track down the problem. I want to see what word's menus claim are the true settings to see if this is an import or a rendering issue. cmc->mru: I'll pass this back to you. Perhaps we'll have to try and recreate this sort of document if we can't get an unprotected version.

Comment 8 michael.ruess 2003-06-04 14:27:17 UTC
MRU->CMC: I've created a document from the original one where the grid is activated. The page borders are wrong after import. The large distances resulting from the grid could be a problem of the Writer core, ain't it?
Comment 9 caolanm 2003-06-04 15:49:35 UTC
I can fix the margins anyway, theres a property with the wrong length. I'll look into the textgrid stuff.
Comment 10 caolanm 2003-06-23 17:11:44 UTC
cmc->mru: 1. Page margins fixed in SRX645m7. 2. The grid in word is "lines only" 39 lines per page, which is the same as in word. A base size of 14 + ruby of 4 gives 18pt, the same as word's value. I don't understand the large row heights that writer gives when the grid is enabled. Perhaps our grid is working correctly but differently to word. Or perhaps it is not working. fme should know if this is the wrong behaviour. 3. Turning off the grid still gives large, but smaller, row heights to do with the differences in word and writer in paragraphs before/after/fixed height in tables. That difference is something we are tackling for 2.0.
Comment 11 michael.ruess 2003-07-18 10:09:57 UTC
Page margins now fit well in OO 1.1 RC. Issues regarding Grid will be investigated later.
Comment 12 michael.ruess 2004-01-08 10:52:33 UTC
So this is more a collective task, the remaining (grid-) problem will be handled with issue 24195. Main Problems of this here has been solved for current version of Oo 2.0, thus the issue will be closed as fixed.
