Description lunix98 2001-12-19 02:55:23 UTC
OpenOffice641 (as well as SO5.2) makes minced meat out of .doc with embedded drawings. Transferring the images (drawings) from MS word97 to Openoffice641 drawing and Then copy/paste the drawing into the 641 wordprocessor sheet works, BUT the drawing are not scaled correcly. perhaps an OLE issue? this problem exists under Linux AND win98, win95
Comment 1 lunix98 2001-12-19 03:01:46 UTC
Created attachment 837 [details] a zipped .doc with embedded graphs
Comment 2 lunix98 2001-12-19 03:03:18 UTC
the gray shaded areas of the original .doc disappears in 641.
Comment 3 stefan.baltzer 2002-01-08 11:02:07 UTC
Reassigned to Michael.
Comment 4 michael.ruess 2002-01-08 17:24:47 UTC
MRU->CL: It looks like a problem with a graphic filter. After import of the document you only recieve a white graphic.
Comment 5 clippka 2002-01-16 10:39:06 UTC
there no ole shapes after the import, just two graphic shapes that both have a star view metafile assigned. The metafile seems to be invalid
Comment 6 sven.jacobi 2002-01-22 12:25:23 UTC
Created attachment 967 [details] metafile extraction of the original document
Comment 7 sven.jacobi 2002-01-22 12:27:24 UTC
It is a problem of the metafile import.
Comment 8 t8m 2002-09-27 21:48:00 UTC
When I try the first attachment it even hangs the application with 100% CPU usage and memory hogging. I see only big black rectangle in the document. (OOo 1.0.1 Linux RH 7.3)
Comment 9 sven.jacobi 2002-12-06 13:02:03 UTC
Up from version 643 the metafile display is correct. Now only a cropping problem is left. I will have to determine if the cropping problem is Word import dependent or if it is a general failure in our basic cropping mechanism.

Created attachment 3952 [details] desk-to snapshot with interesting stuff
Comment 11 lunix98 2002-12-07 01:45:02 UTC
Ok, this time its rh8.0 and OpenOffice 1.0.1. The processor as the graph indicates is an AMD XP1800 w/ 512MB RAM working very hard. In MS Win2000 the Oo-writer produces the same results with these kind of files. There is a "normal.dot" located inside the Dactron program. Would you interested in loooking at it?
Comment 12 whitegn3 2003-04-28 15:20:06 UTC
Version 644 on Solaris, conversion of .ppt file with embedded metafile objects results in very badly scaled graphics objects. If I convert the objects to Word Drawing format in PowerPoint they import correctly.

Created attachment 6907 [details] Opening this file crashes openoffice 1.1beta2
Comment 14 sven.jacobi 2003-06-16 10:15:16 UTC
SJ: I changed the summary, because this is a cropping problem and not a general ole import problem. To come up to the latest attachment "c:\temp\crash.doc" I wrote Issue 15669.

Comment 22 Roberto Salomon 2009-09-25 14:18:47 UTC
This also happens on 3.1.1 in Linux (Ubuntu). WMF files are sometimes rendered completely off. This odd behavior is kept when the file is converted to odf. I am attaching a file with the problem
