Description epqa 2010-03-27 19:38:43 UTC
Text Animation

When the Group Text option “By 1st level paragraphs” is selected, the up and 
down buttons of the numeric field appear to fail:

- The up button only works if the very top edge is clicked.
- The down button does not appear to work.

With "By 1st level paragraphs" selected, the numeric field also becomes:

- Obscured (XP, Vista).
- Enabled, although the check-box is empty (XP, Vista, Win7 64).

The problems followed on 3 PC platforms, and in the following OOo and OS 

3.1.1, OOO310m19 (Build:9420) & WinXP
3.2.0, OOO320m12 (Build:9483) & Win7 64
dev 3.3.0, DEV300m75 (Build:9488) & Vista

The request on Issue 110310 describes a presentation need that could possibly 
be met by using the affected numeric field. While it's possible to manually 
input a value as a workaround, the user has to click the left-most area of the 
field to do so, or find the very top edge of the up button to increment the 

XP and Vista users are at a disadvantage because the field gets obscured, 
giving the appearance that it's disabled or unusable- even when “Automatically 
after” is checked.

Test Steps:

1. Launch Impress.
2. Add a text object, and enter some text.
3. Select the text box (Ctrl-A).
4. Click Custom Animation under Tasks.
5. Click Add...
6. Under Special, choose Fade In and click OK.
7. Under Effect Appear, click the "..." box next to the Property drop-down.
8. Click the Text Animation tab.
9. Click the Group Text drop-down and select "By 1st level paragraph".

Note the result and try to increment the numeric value up and down.

Correction to Step 7:

"Effect Appear" should read "Effect Fade In."

Reproducible. Reassigned.

After check "Automatically after", use "Tab" key to enter in the field.
Here you can input some numeric value with keyboard.

This is a workaround and it will be fine to fix it.
