Description nicu_ooo 2003-01-15 13:10:51 UTC
The dib picture format appears identic with bmp - if i change the extension for
a dib picture in bmp, i can insert the picture in any document (ex. Writer).
In Insert->Graphics->From File i can't select the dib format (or any and then my
dib file)
This extension for bitmap files can be produced from many programs, even from MS
Paint. (if i remember correct dib = Device Independent Bitmap)
The desired option is useful when the file is on read-only media and the
extension can't be changed.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".

Indeed, DIB is an old format very close of BMP but forgotten a long time ago.
I think that we can filed this issue as obsolete now.

.dib is a well known file extension.

We should support it.

Please stop closing bugs unnecessarily.

DIB is supported but not listed in dialog Insert / Graphic / From file...

So, just an easy hack to add this format.
But I don't know where is localised this common dialog.
