Description schmieta 2006-05-15 12:47:38 UTC
In a writer document opened with 2.0.2 the text position in a 
table cell is set to 'bottom'.
When pressing the 'page preview'-button, the text position changes to 'top' even 
before the page preview itself has opened. There the text is shown in the wrong 
(upper)position. After closing page preview the text position only changes back 
to 'bottom' after the cell has been mouse clicked.
The same document in 1.1.3 behaves normally.

Please watch the line where it says 'Barverkauf/Rechnung Nr.:' in the top line 
of the right table.

I checked with "2.0.2  German version WIN XP: [680m5(Build9011)]" and can
ocnfirm the reported effect: Text "Barverkauf/Rechnung Nr.:" and also the
EURO-symbols move to the top of the cells when I click "page preview" and and
move back to the bottom after I disable pp.

I used the test file without images for my tests.

The effect remains If I change printer.

Sometimes the vertical misalignment remains even after I finished pp., I have to
click into the document until the effect disappears.

It seems that PDF export and printout from pp always shows vertical misaligned
text as visible in the preview.

If misalignment remained after I finished pp, printout and PDF export from
normal page view will also show misalignment as visible on the screen.

Pls. specify your Platform and OS!
Can you attach a new, more simple document using only standard OOo formattings
to reproduce the problem?

Same effect on Linux; however i don't think this is a gsl issue but probably
more an issue of writer itself.

For that matter the same behaviour applies if all the 6.0/7 compatibility
choices in tools->options->Writer->Compatibility are switched off

pl->ama: I think this is something for writer

While lokking at some table issues, I checked this in 2.3.0 and 680m8.
I can't see the undesired behaviour -> probably fixed?
Comment 8 Rainer Bielefeld 2007-12-02 06:56:38 UTC
I checked with "OOo-dev 2.3.1  WIN XP: [680m8(Build9236)]" and still saw the

Interesting. Not to say strange ;-)
I focussed on the comments from schmieta Mon May 15 11:52:22 +0000 2006 : "...
'Barverkauf/Rechnung Nr.:' in the top line of the right table."
I'll attach a screenshot showing my result: the line stays bottom during page

screen print showing correct vertical position with page preview
Comment 11 Rainer Bielefeld 2007-12-03 04:32:23 UTC
Yes, that detail seems to look oK in the pae preview, but what is after you
changed back to the normal view or when you select page preview a second time?
With "OOo-dev 2.3.1  WIN XP: [680m8(Build9236)]" the reported problem still is
visible, the text position is changed. 
Comment 12 cno 2007-12-03 06:48:41 UTC
Both in 2.3.1RC1 and 680m8 I can open and close page preview till my weight has
fallen to an once, no change in the position of that text.
A Writer / table setting fooling us?
Comment 13 andreas.martens 2007-12-03 08:56:17 UTC
It's still reproducible. This problem occurs with cell alignment at bottom in
frame anchored at page.
Workaround: Do not use this alignment or do not use this anchor type.
Comment 14 cno 2007-12-03 09:17:30 UTC
If I 
- empty the frame 'Rahmen3' (anchored at the page),
- put in one table cell
- set the height to a few cm
- copy the orig. text 'Klavier Garbe' in the cell
- align the cell bottom
the position doesn't change for me in (repeated) page preview

Might be my fault, but I just can't reproduce it here :-)
