Description scagni 2006-11-14 10:58:29 UTC
In the attech impress file you have 2 copies of the smae object, a calc embedded
The lower one was just pasted and not retouched.
The higher one was simply opened with double clik and resized on its right side
by one spreadsheet column more and less alternatively (you enlarge the visible
part by one column, and exit the object, then reopen it and shrink it by one
column on the same side, then you repeat the 2 steps several other time.
If you this, while nothing should really change, the data in the table atcually
are squeezed a little bit more everytime, and after some 10-12 repetitions of
the two enlarge-shrink steps you get what you see in the attached file.
Please notice that phisical measures in the embedded spreadsheet are unchanged
(character font, column width in cm., etc.) but wildly unreal in the squeezed
I could not find an easy way to restore the object to the original correct size,
other than copying its data and pasting it in a new empty embedded table.

As you imagine, this behaviour is highly annoying when you're producing
precisely crafted slides in Impress, where the size of objects is important.
This problem is as far as I know present since OO1 and still there in 2.0.4
Tanks for the attention, Andrea

Reproducible. A workaround for your might be: just select the OLE object (green
handles) and drag it to the wanted size using the handles.
@cl: For reproduction: get into edit mode and drag it one column wider. The
visible part shrinks a little bit.
