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.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMP_file_format .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.
