Description crxssi 2001-12-22 05:50:56 UTC
When a frame is set to a fixed height (IE- not autoheight) there is supposed to be a red arrow and a beep indicating when text cannot fit inside the frame and text is not visible. This is standard behavior for StarOffice. However, in Openoffice (641), the red arrow never appears. It does beep, however. The red arrow is very important- otherwise one might not catch that there is text missing from the visible/printable frame.

Agreed. I noticed the same problem and reported it as an issue and no news or comments from anyone yet

Mark, please name the number to ease sorting out duplicate issues. So far your comment did not really help. Reassigned to Frank.

A paragraph inside a fixed height frame is "scrollable" (indicated by the red arrows) if it is 1. the last paragraph inside the frame and 2. it overlaps with the bottom of the frame That means, if the last paragraph inside the frame is not visible at all, it cannot be "scrolled". I admit that another behaviour (e.g., scrolling the whole frame contents) would be a "nice to have", but this seems to require some days of work. What could be done is this: We keep the current scrolling behaviour, but extend the cases where a red arrow is painted. The arrow could be painted whenever there is text below the lower frame border.
