Summary0014666: Using "Adjust Frame Height To Text" option causes contants of text frame to left justify
DescriptionIf a text box is created and then text is entered and either centered or right justified, the Adjust Frame Height To Text" option from the right click context menu will left justify the text in the box. Using the "" script from the wiki, which does the same function, causes the same issue. if you add 0.2 mm to the height of the text box, then the text will properly justify or center.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create text box
2. Type some text
3. Center it
4. Right click on text box and choose "Adjust Frame Height To Text"

Workaround is to go into properties and add 0.2mm to the Height of the text box and the contents will then center.

Just did a little more testing. it seems this only affects the LAST line of a text box.

Confirmed. Present in OpenMandriva Lx3 Scribus V1.5.2

I cannot reproduce this in 1.5.3.svn. Could you provide a concrete example which triggers the issue in 1.5.2?

The steps to reproduce will reproduce the issue every time. I can test 1.5.3svn and see if the issue is still there. Perhaps a commit has fixed it already.

>> The steps to reproduce will reproduce the issue every time.

No, because I can't reproduce the issue either in 1.5.2 or in 1.5.3.svn. So a concrete example is needed.

I can reproduce this issue on both Arch Linux x64 and Windows 10 64 bit using Scribus. All I need to do is:

1. Launch Scribus 1.5.2
2. Create a new document
3. Create a text box of any size
4. Type some text
5. Center the text
6. Right click on the text box and choose 'Adjust Frame Height To Text'
7. Text becomes left justified

For me, this is 100% reproducible on both Linux and Windows using just those steps above.

EDIT: I think I found the problem! You need to have a fixed line spacing instead of automatic line spacing.

Well the fact is that 1.5.x is a development branch. As a consequence:
- we won't provide any fix specific to 1.5.2
- it is expected that bugs by checked with *latest* code before being submitted

With 1.5.3.svn, fixed lined spacing or not, I can't reproduce this issue. So as already requested several times, please provide sample which allows us to reproduce the issue. Or this issue gonna be closed as "unable to reproduce".

Is there a 1.5.3svn installer for Windows? I'm more than willing to test with latest code if there is a way for me to install it.

Arch has an AUR package for svn, so I am covered there.

Ignore me. I found it.

So any result from tests with 1.5.3.svn? Any example to reproduce issue with 1.5.3.svn?

Sorry for the delay. This specific issue is not reproducible on Linux. You can close this bug.
