ODT form provoking the bug

Description of problem:
When filling out and printing the attached ODT form, some text fields are grossly enlarged. Further, the color scheme from the computer is also used when generating the output, which may result in a huge black box covering much of the sheet (this was seen on a colleagues Ubuntu machine)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open linked document
2. Type in something in the form (I tried just the last table on page 1)
3. Print
Actual results:

Expected results:

Comment 3 David Tardon 2012-12-20 13:23:36 UTC
The problem is related to property "text type" = "multi-line with formatting" of the text fields. Changing this to "single-line" or "multi-line" makes it print correctly.

Since this problem only arises in quite specific circumstances, I am not going to backport the fix into Fedora.
