Hello everybody Smile ,

I am french and try to use o.o.o math for fews days.

When I try to put the gamma greek letter using %gamma , it is appear to be cut at the bottom. Is there a known issue ? what Can I do to solve that problem ?

I try to desinstall and resintall nothing change.. Sad
It is a fench release, but I am downloading the Us 2.2.1 release to see what it append and will post in a few minute to report that.


Could somebody just take 2 minutes to try it. Open a math windows : type %gamma and see if the gamma letter appear correctly
Thank a lot Wink

PS: 5 minutes later. I 've tried the US version, I have the same problem... unfortunatly Rolling Eyes

Works perfectly for me when I Insert > Object > Formula "%gamma" to a Writer document.

What exactly are you doing?
How do you create the formula--in a Writer doc?
What is the exact formula you're using?

Does a screen refresh help (Ctrl+Shift+R)?

Is it the same in a print preview?

thanks really a lot for your answer !

What I do EXACTLY is :

insertion/objets/formules , then a windows appear : I write : %gamma

And there a greek gamma appear, but without the end of the twist .... Sad i.e. exactly the samed than you...

I am going to try again the U.S. release but deleting all trace of my french version. I will let you know what happening.

thanks a lot anyway Wink

PS: it is the same in a print preview

I see the same thing. The gamma seems to look okay in page preview but not in normal mode.

I have two suggestions to try. Change the zoom in Writer to see if that helps. Sometimes some of the characters are cut off by too small a zoom (e.g. equal signs look like minus signs). Also try exporting the document to a PDF file. This is an icon on the top tool bar. Then open the PDF file with Adobe Reader and see if the characters look OK.
Good luck.....John

Hi again Smile

Thanks a lot for your answer.

I 've already tired to use a zoom. It does not work....
Nevertheless I 've to export as a .pdf file. You are right the problem disappear.. but not each time.

I wrote that formule : size 9 %gamma size 10 %gamma size 11 %gamma etc .... to size 20 % gamma:

On the .odt file, all my gamma are cut Sad but, on mu .pdf file ALL are good EXEPT the bigger one (the 20 size) . If I wrote to size 25 , it will be the size 25 which will be cut....

Strange ... really strange....

As conclusion, it is always the bigger which is cut.... Rolling Eyes

I am not a "O.o.o. programm man" but maybe it is due to the box where the gamma is define ...... Wait and see answer from programmer people maybe....

Thanks really for your help anyway Wink (I am happy this problem is not only mine !! Very Happy )

frero,
I ran your experiment with the varying size of gammas with basically the same results as yours. When I printed the Writer document, all of the gammas were cut off at the bottom but the largest was most noticeable. When I printed the PDF, only the cutoff on the largest was noticeable and it was less pronounced than the Writer print.
I don't know what is going on, but for normal sized gammas printed from the PDF it is difficult to even see the cutoff. Perhaps it is a font problem and a different font would correct the problem. Perhaps acknak can advise you how to change the default font or you could try defining your own gamma via the Symbols dialog. If you click on the sigma icon on the Math toolbar you can see the defined characters and can use this to define your own. I looked at the lower case gamma in the Greek Symbol Set and guess what? - it is cut off at the bottom.
Good luck..............John

I don't think I can help, since I do not experience the problem.

Here are two similar issues:
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=47011
http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=44577

The second sounds more similar but it is closed as "FIXED"

If you file a report, be sure to include a screenshot that shows what you see.

I had a similar problem in one of my files where the bottom of my fractions, limits of my integrals and limits of my sums were cut off.

I turned on nonprinting characters and right clicked on the line marking symbol, the one at the end of every line that looks like a bit like a reverse "p", and clicked on default formatting.

I don't know if this will fix it for you but worth a try.

Hi everyone,

I've just spent horrible days trying to fix the formulas cut in the bottom or in the top (e.g. subscripts, superscripts, terms under the fractions line and so on)...

the solution I found was pretty simple (to some of you may be obvious, but that's it):

just try to increase the spacing between the lines where you have your formulas...

I don't know how..but that worked fine...

Rolling Eyes

cheers!
