Hi folks! I’ve run into a new (and weird) problem in LibreOffice Writer. I’ve got a document where I’ve inserted a line (Insert → Shape → Line → Line). Now I want to change the width of that line so that it matches the width of another part of the document. Problem is, the width box and the accompanying “+” and “-” buttons are being goofy. For example, when I try to type in 0.06 in the width box, it changes to 0.11 on its own. Then, when I hit the “-” button to decrease the size, the size goes down momentarily, then jumps up to a larger size than it started with. I can hold down the “-” button to get the size down to 0.00", but when I click on the “+” button, it reads 0.02 for a moment and jumps up to 0.04. If I push it again, it reads 0.06 for a moment, then jumps up to 0.11. One more press and it reads 0.12 for a moment, then jumps up to 0.21.
So far, I’ve tried deleting and creating a new line, shutting down and reloading my document, rebooting the computer and reloading the document, and finally I did an “apt purge” on libreoffice and anything that had “libreoffice” in the package name, reinstalled LibreOffice, but I’m still experiencing the same issue.
I went ahead and did a screen capture to show the behavior: [LibreOffice Line Setting on Vimeo]
