after upgrading to LibreOffice 6.2.0 (on Arch Linux) the "Edit Style" dialog is off screen and it's impossible to click on buttons, as displayed in following capture: "Edit Style" dialog in LibreOffice 6.2.0

The same problem appears in Writer as well in Calc. I tried deleting whole libreoffice profile, but the problem persists. Other dialogs seems not te be affected by this problem.

If I downgrade to LibreOffice 6.1.4, the dialog is correctly displayed: "Edit Style" dialog in LibreOffice 6.1.4

Any idea how to fix this problem?



The problem only appears when using gtk3 ant gtk3_kde VCLs. Using the generic VLC or gtk2 the dialog is correctly resized.

Please also add screenshots of Help_About for both versions; some info there (like VCL plugins used) could be useful.

Well - please file the bug - this looks definitely like one.

Great! It turned out to be very helpful (as always), and gave us the information that this is actually tdf#122480, and is fixed in upcoming version 6.2.1.
