Description rcabane 2003-02-20 07:02:08 UTC
About line drawing abilities of OO.o (both writer & draw):
there are a lot of proposed "tips" (lines terminators), as dashed lines styles.
But nothing about zig-zag lines.
Would be nice & simple: juste add possible lateral moves to the line drawing
algorithm.

Zig-zag-lines as a further underline style.

So we start. Good !

Just a note. 
How should we arrange box borders ?

So the extended line types should be thought as box borders, even if 
the box's width is 0 (e.g. straight line).

Another decision should be taken before starting:
should lines be drawn as a repeating bitmap pattern, or as a chain of 
vectors ?

Of course you can do wavy underlining, even in various directions with
Draw or Calc. It's quite limited, however. What about a "spring" ?

.. a spring that you could stretch ?

Isn't this one fixed in OOo 2.0?
Comment 8 rcabane 2007-04-07 20:58:36 UTC
Yes OOo 2.0 added wavy underline types in Writer ; but not for frames nor within
Draw.

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