Description pratesi 2003-05-16 17:59:19 UTC
I insert a formula in an OOo Impress presentation;
when the equation display is updated (either automatically or because
I press F9), the box showing the equation is not resized correctly:
its size (apart from some lines drawn externally) remains unchanged.

Hence, when I have to type a long equation (eventually, with more than
a single line), to have a fair view of what I'm doing, I'm almost forced
to close and reopen the same equation a lot of times (when I close
the equation, the equation is displayed correctly and its size
is correctly updated).

The drawing module is affected by the same problem, while the word
processor and the spreadsheet are not.

This does not look good in 1.1. beta and a current internal one, too.
Please have a look.

PING! Still present in the year 2008 in OOo 2.4.1 on Ubuntu Hardy.

I can reproduce this on Windows XP with OOO 310m19 build 9420 too. The annoying
thing is that the formula box redraws when zooming the view and displays scaled
down image of the whole formula, while the image outside the box remains
unchanged. This makes the formula impossible to read until leaving and
re-entering formula editing mode.

Please could the target milestone for this bug be reevaluated? 

I have checked 3.1.0 (OOo310m19) on Ubuntu Karmic and the problem still exists.

To clarify, this problem only occurs in Presentation. I checked in Writer and
there's no problem there. While editing an equation in Presentation, if you have
made the equation longer and you then type ctrl-R, the equation becomes bigger
but the sizing box stays the same (doesn't extend to contain the full equation

On the other hand, in Writer, editing a formula to make it longer, and then
pressing ctrl-R, results in the sizing box around the formula being correctly

On the basis of that, I suggest that this might be a fairly simple bug to fix,
and should be fixed sooner than 'later'.

Reset assigne to the default "".
