Description apksr 2001-11-27 11:09:28 UTC
For both Linux Debian testing with 2.4.10 and Windows98. The graphs in the attached document overlap each other instead of being imported sequentially in order.

Created attachment 732 [details] Graphics don't import correctly
Comment 2 stefan.baltzer 2001-11-27 12:33:50 UTC
Reassigned to Michael.
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2001-11-29 12:31:07 UTC
MRU->AMA: This is due to the (old problem) behaviour of frames at the top of a page, where the anchor of the frame is on the previous page (look break of page 2->3): the frame shouldnÂ´t be wrapped through by another frame, though it has the attribute "no wrap". Do we have a chance to get it right anytime?
Comment 4 andreas.martens 2001-12-04 10:02:35 UTC
The problem is a result of a different layout philosophy. If a frame anchored to a paragraph doesn't fit to the page, it moves to the next page. The difference is: in word the anchor paragraph move to the next page, too. In Writer the paragraph doesn't move.
Comment 5 falko.tesch 2002-01-02 10:39:47 UTC
This issue is re-assigned to Christian Jansen for further evaluation.
Comment 6 christian.jansen 2002-01-07 10:18:59 UTC
Like Andreas wrote, Word supports a different philosophy. It ha to be discoused how Oo.o / SO should behave. Due to the fact that those changes would create an large impact. I will resolve this issue to later.
Comment 7 christian.jansen 2003-06-24 08:28:33 UTC
Is there anything planned for OO.o 2.0?
Comment 8 andreas.martens 2003-06-26 14:01:32 UTC
AMA: Yes, we will indeed improve the frame positioning for imported documents. I'm not sure if we fix this one, but it's not impossible.
Comment 9 andreas.martens 2003-09-18 13:54:28 UTC
We'll allow negativ positioning (i.e. above the anchor) for paragraph anchored frames. Maybe the document will look better.
Comment 10 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2003-09-22 16:12:16 UTC
OD (22.09.2003): accepted. Due to the not completely understood negative positioning of objects with a set wrapping, it will be very hard to import such a document correct - but, we'll do our best. To import such an document correct we need: (1) negative positioning - in progress (2) suppress 'following the text flow' - in progress (3) re-work positioning of objects and formatting of content, if the object has a set wrapping in order to simulate the formatting of MS Word - in planning.

Comment 12 edimck 2004-02-21 07:04:27 UTC
Created attachment 13340 [details] Another example that's OK in Word and fails in OOo. Might show some new aspects of the problem.
Comment 13 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2004-02-23 08:44:02 UTC
OD->edimck: Thank you for contributing another MS Word document. The problems I could see in your document are: (1) MS Word has a special layer for floating screen objects, which are anchored inside page header/footer, which isn't supported by the Writer yet. This is planned to by solved by issue #14045# (2) The positioning of floating screen objects of MS Word 'AutoShapes' respectively Writer 'drawing objects' isn't supported completely in the Writer yet. This is planned to be solved for OOo 2.0 - specification is in progress.
Comment 14 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2004-07-06 09:44:11 UTC
Add dependence to issue #27349. Positioning defects in given document 'bad_import.doc': The new object positioning, activated by setting the new document compatibility option "Consider wrapping style influence on object positioning" and handled by issue #27349, will solve the positioning problems. But, there are still some difference in the text wrapping between OpenOffice.org Writer and Microsoft Word: (1) Writer allows an empty paragraph, which takes no space, be placed beside objects, which doesn't left space according to its wrapping style. E.g., an empty paragraph can be beside an object with wrapping style 'No Wrap'. (2) An object, that overlaps with the space of a paragraph, given above or below the paragraph, causes in Microsoft Word the first resp. last line of the paragraph to wrap around the object. This isn't in Writer. Positioning defects in given document 'TestCase.doc': These defect are solved in cws swdrawpositioning, which is already integrated in SRC680m46.
Comment 15 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2004-07-27 12:42:33 UTC
I decided to handle this issue as a DEFECT
Comment 16 remco.gerbrands 2004-11-24 13:42:14 UTC
Created attachment 19647 [details] new example of import problem with graphic in word doc
Comment 17 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2004-12-01 11:03:10 UTC
OD->r2gnl: document 'Callagur species sheet.doc' looks fine in SRC680m63
Comment 18 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2004-12-01 11:06:57 UTC
As discussed this MRU, I decrease the priority to P4.

Comment 20 pavel 2005-02-10 21:53:56 UTC
od: please change the target accordingly. STARTED LATER is weird. Shouldn't the terget milestone be OOo later then?
Comment 21 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2005-02-11 06:58:38 UTC
OD->pjanik: You're right STARTED LATER is somehow confusing. I'll clear the resolution. It is still planned to fix this issue for OOo 2.0. But it could be that at the end we have to retarget this issue.
Comment 22 andreas.martens 2005-03-29 11:52:56 UTC
Ok, at the end this issues could not be solved for OOo2.0. I retarget it to OOo Later but I will raise the priority again because a perfect im- and export will be on our agenda fro every version.

Comment 24 joeconner 2005-08-22 05:14:25 UTC
Attached is a word document that fails to import most of the graphics, and most of the text.
Comment 25 joeconner 2005-08-22 05:19:26 UTC
Created attachment 28957 [details] Most graphics and most text do not import.
Comment 26 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2005-08-22 08:09:50 UTC
OD->joeconner: The given document <FriendshipBracelet.doc> isn't imported correctly, because there is a table inside a table. See issue 25680

Created attachment 31199 [details] importing this word file results in incorrect graphics (black pixels seem horizontally enlarged and overlapping)

Created attachment 31363 [details] File imports and displays correctly in MS-Word, but fails in OOo Write. Even when saved in OOo Write (MS-Word format) and re-opened in MS-Word, MS-Word imports and displays correctly, but OOo does not. Uploaded in case it highlights new aspects of the is
Comment 29 merschmann 2009-03-09 09:21:09 UTC
Still true with OOo 3.0.1 with the least attached bugdoc
Comment 30 merschmann 2009-05-20 21:21:58 UTC
... and 3.1 on XP
Comment 31 rpadmanabhan 2009-09-18 02:55:19 UTC
RPadmanabhan, 9/16/09. Successfully replicated the bug on Windows Vista in 3.1 build. It takes more time to import a word document in OOo compared to MSOffice. As pointed out in the bug report, the graphs are overlapping when opened in Open Office. But if you change to the Web Layout, the graphs are neatly aligned.The issue is when you view the document in Print Layout. Tried to surmount this problem by saving the original document in WebLayout using MSOffice. Then I tried to open in OOO again. Still, the document was opening in Print layout and the figures were not aligned. Print Layout may be is the default layout of OOO.
