OpenOffice.org Calc Problems
After installing OOo from Backports, Calc had these two
In spreadsheets where a column header is formated to
wrap and/or uses a larger than normal font, the row
will change height so the text fits. If I close Calc
then open the saved spreadsheet, the row height
returns to the default (this did not happen in the
prior version of Calc).
If I change a format setting, like the option to use
Printer Metrics, the row height will snap to the
correct height on wrapped cells or those with a large
font. However, if I close Calc then again open the
saved spreadsheet, the row height also goes back the
In either case, I have to manually resize the row
height on those rows that have wrapped or large text.
A spreadsheet that has cells linked to another
spreadsheet will first only open in read-only mode. If
I close the linked spreadsheet then open it again, it
will open in normal (edit) mode.
I am running Lenny AMD64 with KDE 3.5. As best as I can
tell, I also have the correct required packages for
OOo. I am sort of new to Debian/Linux so I manually
checked Aptitude for the required packages listed for
the OOo packages. I could have missed something or it
could be a real bug.
Since I require compatitbility with Excel (and other MS
Office apps), I have never used OOo in its native file
format. Since neither of these problems existed in the
OOo version from the main Debian Lenny repository, I
did not expect such problems to appear with the
backport of the newer OOo version.
Thank you for looking into this.
