Description akio 2005-10-19 09:35:54 UTC
How to reproduce:

1. Insert a formula using the Insert-Object-Formula menu command.
2. For testing purposes enter the formula: sum from{i} i^
3. Enter some text next to the formula.

Actual behaviour:

The baselines of the formula and of the text are not aligned.

Expected behaviour:

The baseline of the formula, i.e. the baseline of the second "i" in the example
given above, should be aligned with the baseline of the surrounding text.


Note that this bug is *not* caused by misconfigured "Formula" stylesheet. The
underlying problem is located at a somewhat more fundamental level: Formulas in
OpenOffice are treated like any other graphics flowed into the text. As such, it
is not possible to vertically position them correctly (according to their
inherent baseline).

MRU->FL: the vetical-alignment problem of formula objects has been discussed for
a long time... Maybe in formulas we should implement something like a baseline
pointer e.g.
This could refer than  in the surrounding text.
