Description Unknown 2001-11-27 21:30:11 UTC
When starting, click "Format" menu, and choose the "Page" 
command to set up a page. If in the Width box, we use a letter such as "a", the 
value will be kept as the original one. But if we set the value as "a/2", when 
we click "OK" of the "Page" dialog, the value will be specified as "2.14" (after
click "OK"). 
There should be a default value in OpenOffice for all the letters input by this 
way. Our suggestion is: either the letters can't be input in this box, or the 
division sign -- "/" can't be used in this box

Comment 2 Unknown 2001-11-27 21:36:05 UTC
In the description, I forgot to change "Width" into "Height". I need 
to find a way to modify it. 
Anyway, this issue is about the "Height" box in the "Page" tab.

In these boxes you may enter numbers, decimal seperator and unit (cm, 
mm, ...), therefore there is no limit what characters may be entered.

When something "useless" is entered, the box should keep the old 
value, as it does when "a" is enterd. IMHO, there is no point to 
enable these boxes to calculate, therefore something like "a/2" or 
whatever should keep the old value, too.

Reassigned to Malte.
