Hi :)
I would post it as a bug-report but make it clear that it's the xls format that is affected.  
Actually the screen-shots show it's xls if you look up at the title-bar in the screen-shots.  The 
taskbar at the bottom shows it's running on Xp.  

It would be interesting to know if you get the same results using the native format, .ods for 

Gimp or something could be used to edit the image to crop out bits you don't want to pass on but 
actually you seem to have quite a nice layout and nothing embarrassing open and showing in the 
taskbar.  I found it awkward to take screen-shots in Windows.  In most Gnu&Linux you just press the 
"PrtScn" button and doing that gives a "Save As ..." type dialogue-box offering to save a Png in 
your "Pictures" folder.  No messing around pasting the copied picture into Paint or something.  

Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] calc cells spacing to contents not working as it should


After typing content inside cells and changing "spacing to contents" under
format cells and border (tab), the size of the cell increased if the
synchronise check-box was checked, and the contents of the cells were
repositioned inside the cell as shown above.

after saving and opening the file the cell size remains enlarged but the
contents of the cell are positioned as if no change was made: Format cells
-> border ->spacing to contents 
all setting retain default spacing of 2.0pt
as shown below in image

if synchronise check-box was unchecked and only right value was changed, the
cell size remained unchanged but the contents of the cell were repositioned 
as shown below:

after saving the file (synchronise unchecked), and opening it the contents
showed up as if no formatting was done using: format cell -> border ->
spacing to contents
