Description sergio_lineu 2003-12-27 20:10:42 UTC
After inserting a Formula Object into any OpenOffice application (Write, Calc,
Draw, etc) is no possible to resize it directly using the mouse, the cursor near
the corners show a circle with a line, but if we acess the position and size
dialog box we can see in the Size tab that the Protect checkbox is checked.
After uncheck it is possible to resize the object but only once, after that the
Protect checkbox returns to be checked.

MRU->BH: In OO it is forbidden to resize Math objects generally because of the
horrible results. In Writer it is not possible to switch off the size protection
via UI (value seems to be stored internally). But in Draw/Impress it is... a
little bit inconsistent.

Are you saying won't fix, or is this possible going to changed some day. It
doesn't really sound like an issue. Rather it sounds like expected behavior.

duplicate, see issue 8881 as well

Let me put it this way: it is unlikely to have it implemented in near future.

You can always take the step and copy the formula to draw, choose "break"
(optionally group the parts) and copy it back to Writer and resize it as you'd like.

The other possibility is to use the "size" operator in your formula.
