Description Unknown 2002-10-28 18:21:09 UTC
A MSWord97 doc opened in OOo has some text clipped.  See lines "Please,
complete..." and "List Expenses..." the attached file (drawing file that shows
how the doc looks in MSW97 and OOo).  It's on the page 2.  Page 1 attached only
for sake of completeness.  

I've also attached the MSW97 doc.

Duplicated on Win NT 4.0 SP6a, OOo 643.

In OOo, on the second page, the first and second lines appear

That's because the formatting on those 2 lines of text is 

   A)  The font was set as Arial 14 pt.

   B)  Then line spacing was set at "Exactly 12pt".  This causes 
       clipping in Word 2000.

   C)  Superscript was applied to the text.  That makes "clipping"
       in Word 2000 worse.

   D)  Then the position of the text was forced "Lower by 3pts".
I doubt bolding and italics have anything to do with this problem.

Note, this document has margins that are outside the valid print area.

Comment 8 michael.ruess 2002-12-04 14:51:49 UTC
MRU->AMA: There are some wild things in formatting, such as
super-/subscript characters, different line spacings of less than 0,5 cm
But: it only seems wrong on the display; the printout looks good...

Comment 11 frank.meies 2003-01-29 08:56:32 UTC
FME: This is the reason: The paragraph is set to a fixed line spacing
(0,42 cm). On the other hand the characters have the "superscript"
character attribute, therefore the line height is greater than 0,42 cm
and the characters get clipped from above. MS Word does also a
clipping in this case, but they clip the lower part of the line (you
can verify this by changing the "superscript" characters in the doc
file to "subscript"). I think that clipping the upper part of a line
does make more sense, because the baseline of the characters is in the
lower part of the line. I'll change priority and target.
