Description mathelec 2010-05-03 10:30:14 UTC

Problem detected on xubuntu 9.04 9.10 (32bit). The conversion of a metafile
string to polygon "explode" the letters on the whole page, by inserting spaces
between each letters.
For example copying a list of numbers in a row from Calc, by pasting a metafile
object in Draw, keeps the aspect of Calc. But (in Draw) when the metafile is
converted in polygon, much spaces are inserted destroying the metafile object in
something much bigger and inoperable.

This bug doesn't occurs in windows on the same version of OOO.

Thank you.

Sorry, not reproducible.  Please attach a draw file and a screenshot after 
converting to polygon.

Here is a screenshot, showing the problem. I hope this may help to figure it out.

I've just realised when i read your message again that i've forgotten to join
the odg file. I will do this later. Please accept my apologies.

Thank you very much for your care.
