Comment 3 michael.ruess 2004-02-27 10:29:17 UTC
MRU->CMC: there are some drawing groups which are anchored inside frames. This does not seem to work together; the object groups are not selectable anymore in WW and their positions are wrong. Also the assertion "Der escher-Stream wurde schon geschrieben" rises.
Comment 4 caolanm 2004-03-02 09:35:24 UTC
This is because word doesn't allow drawings inside drawings. If you try it you either get a drawing which is "positioned" inside a drawing, but not anchored inside it, or you get an inline picture which is merely a snapshot of the original drawing, and not a drawing anymore.
Comment 5 caolanm 2004-03-04 13:48:22 UTC
cmc->mru: Word can't do this, which is why there are asserts and no content on export. Perhaps we should implement a feature in the filter to detect this case (which we already do) and take a snapshot image of the drawing and export this new graphic as a replacement for the drawing. If we do this the final image could only be exported as an inline graphic. If you think this is a required hackaround word's problems then reassign to mmaher. (cmc->mmaher:) some sample code to get a snapshot graphic of a drawing is in svx/source/msfilter/escherex.cxx & escherdo.cxx. sj can help with that.
Comment 6 michael.ruess 2004-07-15 15:02:52 UTC
MRU->MM: Somehow in the future we should workaround this deficiency in WinWord by the filter. Sometimes there are users, which have drawings e.g. in caption frames and want to export to WW format.

You guys /gals are not saying that I cannot insert a textbox in word and cut (from where ever) and paste a .bmp or .jpg into a text box , are u ? I know word can handle it as I just did that and reloaded in word and OO and image did not disappear. OO can do similar things in .odt. I also can insert equation object into text boxes in word without a problem. Same in OO. BUT .... when a native .odt with a bmp pasted into a frame is exported to .doc the pasted image is not saved ......Issue 52280 is data loss bug ( P2 ? ) -G

This issue also applies to the scenario of inserting a frame inside a frame in OO Writer, as I recently discovered. After the export to MS Word 2000 DOC format the inside frame is lost along with its contents. I believe the content must not be discarded. A simple workaround for the inability of DOC to support nested objects would be to export the objects on the same level, that is, as standard text boxes or other objects in Word. It will probably not be possible to retain the formatting of the original document. But I'd prefer to lose formatting instead of losing content.
