Description richlv 2003-06-05 13:45:18 UTC
create a plain writer document. put some lines there. change line endings to 
line arrows (arrows.sxw). now save this document as msword doc in different 

97/2k/xp (arrows-97-2k-xp.doc)

opening it with : lines are.. .well.. different. line arrows now are 
bigger. on big arrows this maybe would not be much of an issue, but on smaller 
ones you might get art.

opening with msword[xp] - arrows pretty much differ from the ones 
displays. they're a lot smaller.

95 (arrows-95.doc)

open with - nothing. empty document

the same with 6.0 (arrows-6.doc)

now, let's take msword[xp] and save our arrows-97-2k-xp.doc as 95/6.0 - 
arrows-6.95-msword.doc (msword has 95/6.0 as one format, has separate 
95/6.0). hmm. although it complains about some background, arrows are there when 
we open document later - although when opening with they are only similar 
to the ones we saved and got in msword.

so, the problems - when opening .doc, arrows differ from the ones saved by oo.
org/msword; when saving as msword 95/6.0 arrows are gone

HI->MRU: Please pass to BH if it is really a enhancement
Comment 7 michael.ruess 2003-07-09 13:48:28 UTC
MRU->SJ: The same problem as issue #166? If so, please re-assign; I'll
close it as double then. Thank you!
Comment 8 sven.jacobi 2003-07-16 15:38:43 UTC
SJ->MRU: Yes, this issue is double to I166. We are having problems if
storing our own arrows to Microsoft format, because they do not
support only five arrow types. The arrow size we are using for the
export needs to be improved.
