Description Joe Smith 2006-10-31 23:11:35 UTC
Text paragraphs in text box objects may have tab stops and fill styles set. The
appearance of the tab fill has changed between OOo 2.0.2 and 2.0.4, so that the
fill characters no longer fill the tab space. So, rather than this:


You see this:

  Left.     .      .Right

This happens for all the tab fill styles.

It happens for text boxes in Writer as well.

Steps to reproduce:
1) File > New > Drawing
2) Create a text box ("T" toolbar icon)
3) Enter text: A<tab>B<tab>C
4) Format > Paragraph
5) Create two tab stops (e.g. 2cm, 5cm)
6) Change the tab fill style for both tabs to ".........."
7) OK

Note that only three dots are used for each tab stop.

The regression is related also to windows not only linux.
Comment 6 Joe Smith 2006-11-30 19:30:30 UTC
Based on my (unofficial) testing, this issue appears to be fixed in 2.1.0rc1
Comment 7 clippka 2006-12-01 10:13:05 UTC
I can also confirm that this seems to be fixed in m194

cl->cgu: please officially confirm and close
Comment 8 christian.guenther 2006-12-01 16:45:35 UTC
I can also reproduce that it works correct in the 195.
I close the issue as invalid.

Comment 10 Joe Smith 2006-12-01 17:03:47 UTC

The issue was confirmed for 2.0.3/4--was nothing done to fix it?

I hope it didn't just mysteriously appear and disappear.
