Description murphyde 2006-12-08 20:13:31 UTC
I experience this issue with OOo 2.0.3 and 2.0.4 (German l10n) on a current
Gentoo, Xorg 7, KDE 3.5.5 and Windows fonts installed. See attached presentation
file and screenshots.
When starting the presentation in fullscreen mode, text (Arial) gets flown in.
While this proceeds my master layout gets hidden by a box with exactly the
background colour I'm using for parts of the layout, while only the text area
shows white background and is growing with each line added to the text shown.
This process starts with the first line that contains umlauts ("äöüß"). The
behaviour isn't always reproduceable; when running the presentation in a loop
some pages sometimes show the issue and sometimes they don't. Changing the font
from Arial to Helmet (or v. v.) did help sometimes, but not reliably. Removing
the umlauts from the text seems to solve it.

Comment 5 christian.guenther 2007-02-15 10:28:10 UTC
I can't reproduce the bug but it looks like an old known bug which is fixed in
the meantime.
Please have a look if you can reproduce the bug with the latest Snapshot build
Comment 6 murphyde 2007-02-15 17:27:30 UTC
Still happens with 2.1.0 here, and I don't have the possibility to try
snapshots, sorry. Will have to wait till the new version is out.
Comment 7 christian.guenther 2007-03-21 17:27:43 UTC
Change the resolution to works for me.
Comment 8 christian.guenther 2007-03-21 17:39:19 UTC
I close the issue.
Please reopen it if you can reproduce it in the new Version (2.2)
Comment 9 murphyde 2007-04-01 21:28:56 UTC
Sorry, still appears with 2.2.0 :-(
@cgu: I work on two boxes with resolutions 1400x1050 and 1280x1024. The problem
appears on both, changing the resolution on one didn't make it disappear. Any
hint what more I could try to isolate the source of this problem?
Comment 10 christian.guenther 2007-04-18 14:25:22 UTC
Set to new and change the target.
Comment 11 christian.guenther 2007-04-18 14:26:47 UTC
Please don't ask me why but I can reproduce the bug (on the same system like
before (vm)).
- Load the bugdoc and start the presentation.
- the presentation runs by their own (don't click)
- if the bug don't occures on slide 1 wait for slide 3 or 4
Please have a look.
Comment 12 thb 2007-04-19 17:03:35 UTC
hm. reminds me of clipping glitches we had in the past. does running the
slideshow in window mode and changing window size modifies behaviour?
Comment 13 Martin Hollmichel 2007-11-09 17:19:21 UTC
set target from 2.x to 3.x according to
Comment 14 thb 2009-09-30 10:26:03 UTC
@af: Thanks for having a look. I have a boxclipper rework in the queue, that
from all tests has far less glitches compared to the generic polygon clipper.
I'll update you if there's progress.
Comment 15 thb 2009-10-16 22:24:01 UTC
Committing that work to CWS thbfixes10, and adding this issue such that cgu can
QA it & check if it helped.
Comment 16 thb 2010-01-18 11:50:53 UTC
Changes committed to CWS thbfixes10, now using the dedicated rect clipper for
update area calculations (basegfx::B2DPolyRange). Extensive testing did not
reveal any update glitches anymore, additionally the unit tests show much
improved correctness (compared to generic polygon clipper) - but YMMV, and this
surely would benefit from extended manual testing on various setups.

Comment 18 thb 2010-02-19 21:48:06 UTC
@wg: fixed in cws thbfixes10, please verify
Comment 19 thb 2010-03-16 16:30:37 UTC
Hm, apparently still setups out there where this happens - setting to new &
removing from CWS, have to look into it again. :(

Comment 21 thorsten.ziehm 2010-09-23 10:44:58 UTC
OOo 3.3 is in showstopper-mode. This issue is too old to be a stopper for the
current release. I change the target to OOo 3.x. Please change the target
accordingly when a fix is near to be integrated into a code line. 
Comment 22 Marcus 2017-05-20 11:11:08 UTC
Reset assigne to the default "".
