Defect is reproducible in r1521921 WIN 8

I confirmed on my Win 7 and Win 8. It looks like that 1 column of the pixels are cut out.

Word Count Screenshot on Windows 8, 7, and XP

Summary: I successfully replicated this bug on Windows 8 Professional (Build 9200), but not on Windows 7 Professional (Build 7601: Service Pack 1) or Windows XP Pro (Build 2600: Service Pack 3).

I replicated this bug using OpenOffice version 4.0.1-dev [branch AOO401 (rev 1523756)] on Windows 8 Professional.

Below are the steps that I took:
1. Open the OpenOffice Writer
2. Add some text into the document
3. Select the text
4. Go to the Tools menu, then select Word Count option

I attempted the same steps on both Windows 7 Pro and Windows XP Pro, however, both were displaying the word count correctly (no problem). Please see the attachment.

Note: Word Count is probably a function that people would use frequently and a lot of users would probably already have Windows 8 installed on their machine. It would be pretty annoying for users to see this error repeatedly every time they use this function. So fixing this bug is desirable.
Comment 7 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-01-20 17:51:39 UTC
Reproducible with "AOO 4.0.1   – German UI / German locale  [Rev. 1524958 2013-09-20 11:40:29]" on  German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic”  4.0  User Profile used for all  predecessor versions

Additional info:
(a) problem does not depend on menu 'Tools -> Options -> View -> Scale'
(b) I did not any other AOO setting what can heal that problem, but might be
    related to OS scale settings or system font or whatever
Comment 8 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-01-20 18:28:53 UTC
(c) I tried WIN System-Settings view
    * 100%
    * 125% (my normal setting)
    * 150%
   I think that the problem is a little more visible with 100% and a little less
   with 150%, but that was a very small effect.
Comment 9 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-01-20 18:53:29 UTC
(d) For me that started with sever installation of "OOo 3.3.0 English UI /
   German locale [OOO330m20 (Build 9567)]" on WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) DE 
(e) was still ok with sever installation of "OOo 3.2.1 English UI /
    German locale [OOO320m18 (Build 9502)]" on WIN7 Home Premium  (64bit) DE 
(f)  Already reproducible with  Pre-3.4.0 (OOo 3.3.0), but because of crippled  
     Version selector (Bug 123063) no useful info can be contributed

This truncation is happen if the fixed text control is aligned to right. 
Make a label on the dialog editor, input "W" or "0" as label, 
they are truncated if right aligned. Thin character such as 1 or l looks not 
truncated but the spacing at the end of the right side might be bad.
The same happen on Xubuntu 12.04 Xfce 4.10 and AOO 4.0.1.
Comment 11 hanya 2014-01-31 08:53:30 UTC
When I compared rectangle of the control and the calculated area for the text aligned to right 
as Rectangle value in Control::DrawControlText method, 
Right value of the calculate text area is 1px larger than the Right value of the control.
At the end of OutputDevice::GetTextRect method, Right value is incremented in 
the following line: 
> aRect.Right()++; // #99188# get rid of rounding problems when using this rect later
This should not done for right aligned text it seems. 
#99188# seems not match with the current issue number.

Proposed patch to avoid increment Right position for right aligned

The line to increment Right position can be merged in the above part to 
calculate Right position for each alignments.
Comment 13 Andrea Pescetti 2014-03-16 21:04:51 UTC
For the record, I can't reproduce the problem either before of after hanya's patch on Linux. So some developers using Windows should verify and commit the patch.
Comment 14 Prashant L Rao 2015-01-14 12:43:53 UTC
This problem still exists in OpenOffice 4.1.1 on Windows 8.1.
