Bug Description

1) lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
Release: 12.04

2) apt-cache policy libreoffice-impress
libreoffice-impress:
  Installed: 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 1:3.5.2-2ubuntu1 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3) What is expected to happen in a blank Impress file is if one adds a formula via Insert -> Object -> Formula, one may resize the formula window.

4) What happens instead is the formula is not resizable via clicking and dragging the edges of the formula.

WORKAROUND: Secondary click the formula -> Position and Size... -> under Protect uncheck checkbox Size -> under Size choose the desired Width and Height.

Impossible to change the size of the formula in wrtier.

In draw, the size is protected (size is checked in position and size).

When unchecked, size is automatically checked again.

What do you mean by "change the size of the formula" ? Please provide a step by step scenario to reproduce the problem.
Good thing to read before reporting a suspected bug : http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport#Reporting_a_bug_in_few_Steps

Best regards. JBF

Did you try to resize a formula in writer ? Type a formula, enter and then try to grab one size to resize : not possible.

In draw : Right clicking and uncheck size under protection in "Position and Size" does not do anything, it's checked again and again

A formula is not an image. The size of the formula is defined by the size of the used fonts : menu Format -> Font size.

Best regards. JBF

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has already been reported upstream, see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48846 . It seems that it might not be considered a bug, to resize the formula one can change the font size while in the formula editor.

Fredrik Nyqvist, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better. https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48846 is a similar but different upstream report as it is about Writer, and it does not share the same workaround. Hence, the issue you are reporting is an upstream one and it would be nice if somebody having it could send the bug to the developers of the software by following the instructions at http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugReport . If you have done so, please tell us the number of the upstream bug (or the link), so we can add a bugwatch that will inform us about the status. Thanks in advance.
