Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 759633
Text cursor and typing position become disjointed on first line of text
Last modified: 2012-03-27 05:34:59 EDT
Description of problem:
While using LibreOffice Writer today, I ran across an issue where whenever I added text to the first line in my document, the text cursor and where the characters appeared were disjointed by 5 or so characters to the left. If I went down a line, everything was fine, but if I moved (via arrows or clicking) back to the top line, again text entry was far behind where the cursor was.
Closing the document and reopening fixed it, but once it happened, it was consistent in the first line being strange, and the rest of the document seeming to be fine. Not sure if this might be a LibreOffice thing, or a rendering issue, or X or what have you.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unfortunately, I have not been able to reproduce it, if there are any log files or anything that would be beneficial in trying to track this down, please let me know where they are located and I will provide them.
Steps to Reproduce:
Sorry, if I run across it again, I'll update.
Typing on the first line was confusing, as text was appearing (or disappearing) somewhere other than the text cursor. The actual text cursor seemed to be 5 or so characters to the left of the rendered text cursor.
Typing in a document as usual.
I was able to capture video of it - http://linuxgrrl.com/fedora-ux/Tmp/libreoffice.webm
No, there are no logs. And since you cannot reproduce it, I suppose there is not much we can do.
If it only happened the once, then indeed hard to determine. Can you attach your /var/log/Xorg.0.log anyway, just so we can see what X driver this is, in case it becomes a pattern.

Can't do anything about this one unfortunately, as I can't reproduce it :-(
