Description gregsmith 2003-10-24 16:36:28 UTC
.sxw doc contains embedded visio doc with hatched areas. These display as solid on screen, printer, or PDF export, but when the embedded object is edited, the hatching is intact. (can't see an 'attach file' button on this form, I guess I can do it later)

I see that all is black and not hatched. can you prof that it is originally hatch, as I didnt have the VISIO ?
Comment 3 gregsmith 2003-11-12 23:04:37 UTC
You should be able to copy/paste the embedded object into a W0rd doc, or pretty much anything that allows embedded objects, where it should look OK. I think there's a program that comes with the dev studio which is specifically designed to have things pasted into it so you can look at their innards. I can upload a .png of a screen shot if you prefer. My understanding of how this stuff works is vague, I believe this that there is VISIO data in there and, independently, a 'metafile' which contains instructions on how to print/display it independently of VISIO. If this is case, I guess the problem lies in how that metafile is interpreted within OO.

Turns out that what I said on 11/12 is not true. I have downloaded the original .sxw from this issue page, and when you copy/paste the embedded object into a Word doc, it shows up as a picture (not a Visio object) and the hatching doesn't work. If however, you select the object in the OpenOffice doc, use 'edit' to edit it (requires Visio), the Visio data is displayed properly in Visio, and can be copied/pasted from there to a Word doc, where it shows up properly as a Visio object. I have attached a word .doc with both cases (copy via Visio, and direct copy/paste). This doc was generated starting with the OLE_Viso_problem.sxw taken from this issue page, using these tools: OpenOffice 1.1.0 Word 2000 (9.0.3821 SR-1) Visio 2000 SR1 (6.0.2072) On my system, with Visio installed, the first object in this doc displays properly (with hatching etc). I don't know if it displays properly on other systems, maybe the Visio OLE server is needed to even display the thing??

MRU->SJ: hatching cannot be properly displayed in the object. I do not now if its a graphics problem or an OLE problem. Please have a look.
