Summary0003051: mis-/nondisplay of overflow text near end of frame and in following linked frames
DescriptionIf the vertical size of a text frame is too close to the threshold between where a line of text at the bottom would jump from being displayed in that frame to being hidden or bumped to the next linked frame,
     a) only the first character or so of the line is displayed or similar
     b) if no following frame, the corner overflow indicator is not shown, or
     c) any following linked frames are displayed as empty, though correct statistics seem to be reported in the contect menu.
The threshold is small (see below), but unfortunately my document (imported from 1.2.1) happens to have been at it since October or so when I switched to cvs, leading me to think erroneously until now that 1.3 generally misdisplayed linked frames, which was rather inconvenient.
Hmm: I just discovered that it actually only seems to occur, or persist on resize, if the preserve aspect ratio button in properties is unselected.
Steps To ReproduceClose and reopen Scribus if necessary (maybe not necessary, but resets aspect ratio button). Create a document (so far could only verify with automatic text frames). Fill first page with text to overflow frame. Adjust height of frame carefully (may need to enter in properties box; see below for precision) until last currently displayed line barely no longer fits. Listed symptoms will occur. (See attached file for premade example.) If a second frame is linked to the first, the extra text will not spill over into it, but should appear as linked in context menu (though hard to see because of bug 3050).
I'm not quite sure the relationship of the aspect ratio button here; try opening the attached doc and immediately going to properties and deselecting it, then playing with the height if you can't reproduce the problem.)
Additional InformationFor me the tolerance of the vertical size to obtain the bug seems to be one pt at a font size of 18 (see document), ranging from .5 pt +/- some center value (645.5-646.49 pt in the attached document).

Sometimes an alternate visual artifact when playing with it is the overlay of another page worth of text over the first frame--possibly what should go to the next frame; I can't tell.

Incidentally I find it annoying that the aspect ratio button doesn't preserve its state over restart/reload or something, but I'll file a separate request.

some other fixes in 1.3.3cvs ahve resolved it. Seems fine now.

This isn't fixed here as of the latest deb released March 9. Open the document I attached previously and it still fails to display the second page.

I can confirm mkoren's observation under SuSE 9.3. It doesn't seem to be fixed.

Yes.. resave it when it does fit.. works ok here.

reporter   ~0009234 first I was getting the same result, but actually apparently it only happens if the width remains exactly 648.00 pt, and with the preserve-aspect-ratio button checked, changing the height slightly changed the width as well. This explains the dependence on that button being unchecked that I noted before (and provides support for my request in bug 3052--I completely forgot to uncheck it initially :).
If you uncheck the button and change the height alone, the same thing still happens, even if you save a working state and then manually adjust both width and height back to the affected parameters.
There doesn't seem to be any similar behavior for any other width; I don't know why. I haven't tried recreating this from scratch; maybe the original problem is fixed and it only affects old frames somehow, but then this might ought to be added to bug 3380 as a file problem.

My document was fine, but when I used "break words" on the text frames I had the same problem as described above. My paragraph style: 9pt Georgia Regular.
I atached screen. On the end of the left page there is only one letter (or sth wich looks like several letters in one place), the right page (linked to tle left) is empty. I use version for Ubuntu.

I seem to have created another case of this in a new file. See upper right text frame in attached file.

I had the same today in Scribus

Can someone reproduce?

I wasn't able to reproduce the issue importing Test.sla
But I think I was able to reproduce it in the bogus.sla example. (see the upper right text frame in that file)

Though on 2nd thought.. i don't think I can reproduce it. Not sure. Need more eyes on this to see if it's obsolete or not.

reporter   ~0040126

Can reproduce with 1.4.6 - see attached.
Not able to reproduce with 1.5.2.

Oh, Ok. Thanks laser.
assigning to 1.4.7 to see if the devs want to backport this.

reporter   ~0040164

Have to correct!
With a letter that goes under the baseline, I get the attached result with 1.5.2...

This is a duplicate bug I think of something that I've seen before...
