Subject [Bug 120999] New: Cannot resize AutoGrowWidth text shape in the first try
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2012 02:06:55 GMT

          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 120999
           Summary: Cannot resize AutoGrowWidth text shape in the first
          Severity: normal
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Application
                OS: All
          Hardware: All
            Status: CONFIRMED
           Version: AOO350-dev
         Component: editing
           Product: drawing

ALG: To reproduce:
- Open Draw/Impress
- create a new text object (click on text in the bottom toolbar, then somewhere
on the page to start text edit, do *not* give it a width so that it will auto
- type some text
- press ESC (to get to object selected mode)
- try to make it smaller (less width) with e.g. the right handle

-> it will snap back to it's original size

Interestingly, repeating the same action after this *will* work now in the 2nd
try. This is because the AutoGrowWidth aleady got reset. This indicates that
there is code to reset that flag, but it is executed too late. The first action
should already let the use resize the object.

The user clearly expresses with the action he triggers what he wants to do, so
always respect user input. Since it *can* be resized in the 2nd try, it looks
like an error, it should be possible in the first try. Denying resize in the
first try is a bad user experience.
