Description Jens Knutson 2002-08-26 06:42:15 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020809 Description of problem: This is a strange one, but I hope I describe it well... In Abiword, when typing out the first line of a sentance, when I reach the rightmost margin of the page, it keeps typing beyond the edge of the margin. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Type a line in Abiword that hits the end of the right hand margin 2. Keep typing and watch it keep trailing past the edge of the margin Additional info: I've tried this on multiple machines, one with a Matrox G400, and the other 2 with ATI cards, so it doesn't *seem* to be an X driver bug... Marking as High because without this getting fixed, Abi is basically useless.

I'm seeing this issue as well.

Okay, seems to be related to UTF-8 locales. Looking at it a little more to see how to fix it properly.
Comment 5 Håvard Wigtil 2002-10-02 14:04:14 UTC
It's also present in 8.0, and it also affetcs Dia. Workaround: set locale to a ISO-8859-1 one ("LANG=en_GB.ISO-8859-1 dia"). I'm attaching two screenshots, one with LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 and one with en_GB.ISO-8859-1.

I've also tried upgrading to version 1.3 of Abiword with Abiword's RPM (Redhat 8.0 ships with Abiword 1.2) and that did not solve word wrap issue.

Comment 12 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-29 19:02:31 UTC
Worked around for 1.0.3-1 by making the locale non-utf8 in the abiword wrapper script. Abiword 1.1.x handles this better but isn't yet ready for release.
Comment 13 Evan Clarke 2003-02-15 12:38:41 UTC
Just letting people know that I am seeing this as well - and it is making using Abiword/Dia quite fruitless task. I am running RH 8.0 will all updates installed - a fairly standard install (aside from the MS core fonts and the Mozilla 1.3B RPMs). Is there a work around (comment #12 seemed to have something that may work - but I am afraid that I do not know what he means) - or (preferably) an updated RPM to install. This does seem like quite a common problem (google searching lead to lots of people asking but no solutions) that is still affecting people. Is there anything that I can do to help (do tests/etc)? This really does need to be solved.
