Description pentcheff 2008-03-31 00:26:18 UTC
When doing a "convert table to text" on a table of over about 325 lines, all of
the table beyond about line 125 appears to vanish in the text result.  This is a
display bug: the text reappears when the view mode is flipped between "Print
Layout" and "Web Layout", or if the file is saved then read back in.

Note that it's always the text beyond about line 125 that vanishes, no matter
how long the table is (as long as the table is longer than about 325 lines).

To reproduce:

Create a plain text file to use as a test document:
    perl -e 'for (1 .. 350) {print "$_\ttext\n"}' > test.txt
Start OO and read the test file:
    File|Open File... and read "test.txt"
Convert that all into a table:
    Edit|Select All
    Table|Convert|Text to Table... (accept all defaults)
Select the table and convert back to text:
    Table|Convert|Table to Text... (accept all defaults)
Now only about 125 lines will be visible.
They can be made visible again by flipping display styles:
    View|Web Layout

MRU->AMA: as described, just open attached txt, select all, convert to table,
then convert table to text -> content from line 125 on not visible (need to
change to Web layout and back).
In DEV300 build I had to perform two undo steps to reproduce the issue.
