For an unknown reason, a table is unable to keep its formatting across save document and reopen.

It reverts to alignment: automatic, equal column (I set them to 3.5, 2, 1 and 10.5 cm respectively), no borders (instead of outer and inner lines) and padding:0 cm (instead of 0.1cm).

I have reformatted the table several times. I have even copied it from another document to no avail.

Could someone have a look at "Revision history" table in the attached document (file removed).

Version: 6.4.3.2 Build ID: 6.4.3.2-1.fc32 CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 5.6; UI render: GL; VCL: kf5; Locale: fr-FR (fr_FR.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US Calc: threaded

In case this matters: the document is rather special and TTF fonts are embedded.

PS: the same goes for the table in the header. It lost all its specific layout: all column equal, no border, merged cells unmerged.

In order to see your table better in the header, I have given the table a frame. However, the frame cannot be seen on all pages because you use "Chapter" as the page template and "ChapterStart" on the other. Should that be so?

How should I compare your description?

The document is a short one, thus you don't see all the automation from the template. First page of a chapter has page style PageStart; subsequent pages are under Chapter. The difference is the chapter heading (Heading 1) is not echoed on first page because it is already visible.

How should I compare your description?

The point was not the exact appearance, but the fact that the settings didn't survive save-reopen.

Thanks anyway.

Yes it matters. It is tdf#127036, and the problem is "Only embed fonts that are used in documents". Uncheck that to work around.

Thanks Mike, I kind of remembered vaguely something about it.
