A long time ago (REALLY long ago!) I complained that LO does not print
serial letters correctly.
I think I also filed a bug report with (in MY opinion!) the right test
data. I just tried to
print such serial letters again today. Unfortunately the problem still
exists. As you can maybe
see from the enclosed pdf-file, only the FIRST letter prints correctly,
while ANY letters after
the first one miss out lines of text (e.g. the place and date near the
top on the right),
drawn lines (near the bottom). Even though I use a MySQL database as
"supplier" of DB-fields,
I don't think this has anything to do with Base.
It should be easy enough to put together a test for this issue, but I
include the respective
.odt-file in any case. Again, I don't think a DB-table is necessary for
Is the bug report you
are referring to? If so, I will take a look and see if I can replicate
and confirm it.

Please add a reproducible example to Heinrich's report. This will:
a) Assist QA in assessing if it is the same bug or not.
b) Add more weight to the issue, which in turn is more likely to attract
a developer's interest.
If you know it's not the exactly the same issue and your reference to
"messing up colors" suggests that it may not be, please find and
contribute to an existing report, or open a new one.
Nobody (developer, QA or other) "denies the existence of an issue", but
no issue can be effectively resolved if it cannot be replicated and it's
cause determined. Which is where we come in with accurate reports and
reproducible examples.

This list is a great place to vent our frustrations about our "pet"
issues, but at the end of the day our "rants" here do nothing, only our
contributions (ie. bug reports and reproducible examples) will help to
get anything done.


Yes it is

OK! Give me a few days to check it out and I will post my findings on

and - looking at it again I can see that I DID add attachments
for testing.

Yes, I know you did. My comments about attachments were in response to
Gary's part of this thread.
