Paragraph identation in LO writer is now managed in character units and no more in cm/inch
Last modified: 2013-08-27 07:21:38 EDT
Description of problem:
It seems that starting with LO-libreoffice-126.96.36.199-6, the identation units in the paragraph format (and some more, I didn't check) is now character and no more cm or inch. I want to get back the old behaviour (inch or cm unit).
How to achieve this? Trying to exchange char by inch or cm, cm or inch is immedately reset back to char.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.OPen some doc.
Identation unit is charachter
Identation unit is cm or inch
That's not the normal situation, is tools->options->writer->general->"enable character unit" on or off ? Sounds like it is on somehow.
You are right: 'tools->options->writer->general->"enable character unit"' was 'on' for some reasons. Switching to 'tools->options->writer->general->"enable character unit" off' restored my familiar behaviour. So it seems I was the culprit for this behaviour (but I don't know why) :--(
Thank you very much for you help..
I found out the reason for the activation of tools->options->writer->general->"enable character unit":
For curiosity purposes I activated the extended support for asian languages in the Options->Language control menu, and this displayed automatically and activated automatically the 'tools->options->writer->general->"enable character unit"' switch.
alright, so that's not a bug (I believe) with CJK enabled the default units there are cells/lines
