Description ftack 2004-05-06 13:11:52 UTC
The setting "Protect Size" is not retained for a Math object. When the user
deselects "Protect size", the setting is not remembered when the object is
selected next time. This is an irritating behaviour. The "Size" protection
should remain like the user set it.

Steps to reproduce the issue

1. Insert a Math object
2. Click the object: it cannot be resized at first (this already is not
consistent with other objects)
3. Unprotect size using Format Position and Size
4. Now, the object can be resized
5. Unselect the object and select it again: the object again cannot be resized.

Thus, the user must again first change the setting in order to be able to resize
the object. The setting made by the user should be retained.

This is still around in Open Office 2.0.4 and makes resizing OpenOffice formulas
in draw nearly impossible. Can someone re-look at this and see if it fixable.
This bug has be around a very long time.
