Description lohmaier 2005-01-03 18:05:24 UTC
This issue is a follow-up of issue 39658

Note that it would be desireable if OOo's behaviour would be changed to reflect
what is written in the Help, but apparently "the spec says the behaviour is
correct" :-((

Problem: The help on the grid subdivision (Extras|Options -> OOo Draw -> Grid)
says that you can determine the "number of intervals between grid points"
But this is wrong. The value unfortunately determines the number of additional
dividing points.

Given you want have two segments/intervals you have to entwer "1", not "2" as

   #   |   #   |   #

#: Main Interval, |: additional segmentation pints.   

If you want 5 Segments, you have to enter "4"
   # | | | | # | | | | #
    1 2 3 4 5 Segments, but only four additional division points.

"blocks" issue 39658 - depending on what the correct behaviour should be (help
describes desired, not current behaviour)
Comment 2 frank.thomas.peters 2005-01-04 09:23:26 UTC
Changed target, reassigned.
Comment 3 Uwe Fischer 2005-01-04 10:50:26 UTC
changed text\shared\optionen\01050100.xhp
replaced "intervals" with "intermediate points"
sorry for the confusion. The german word "Zwischenschritte" in the SO5.2 help
was translated to "intervals", which is ambiguous

Comment 5 frank.thomas.peters 2005-01-25 16:20:39 UTC
FPE: Pls verify in hc680postbeta
Hint to QA: Search for "subdivision" and select the second result "Grid"

Verified in CWS.

Tested in master and closed.
Comment 9 2008-06-30 21:09:19 UTC
Does this mean that i39658 is solved?

Has the bug become a feature?

This is closed and fixed and it is still issue type defect, as you can see.
