Description pesala 2007-03-13 14:21:07 UTC
The current behaviour of hanging indents in tables is defective as explained in 
Issue 75225. The user should not be able to position the text cursor where the text 
neither displays nor prints, but this can be done by specifying a negative first 
line ident (hanging paragraph). 

Rather than fixing this defect, which might be quite difficult, it would be more 
useful not to clip the text and allow the text to print outside the table borders.

This would be especially useful where borderless tables are used to create parallel 
columns, and would be entirely consistent with the current behaviour of regular 
paragraph text or text in sections. 

The same behaviour should be allowed with text in Frames.

This issue still affects release version 2.4 and Development version 3.0 Beta.

The hanging indent text does not appear on-screen, but it prints and exports to
.pdf (tested on OOo 3 for Linux, for Mac and NeoOffice 2.2.5 for Mac).

Imagine the confusion when a document looks basically OK on-screen and displays
strange overlapping characters when printed.

To maintain compatibility with competitor's office program, perhaps hanging
indents should stay invisible (issue was brought to my attention when I received
a document created in Word which looked OK on-screen but printed badly - clearly
hanging indents are clipped in Word as well).

The software should give identical output on-screen, in print and when exporting
to pdf.
