Description norbert2 2004-03-10 20:50:52 UTC
In the windows version of OOo, trying to drag&drop pictures from the internet explorer into calc adds the title of the internet-page from where this picture comes into the cell, instead of the picture! (In the writer this works.)

Hi Niklas, as we should do it like Excel does, this must be changed from Hyperlink to Picture. Frank

The same problem happens when right-clicking a picture in IE "Copy" and then CTRL+v in Calc. Then also the title is inserted instead of the picture.

This (drag&drop or copy&paste) also applys the title of the internet-page where the picture comes from as spreadshee-title!!! (Due to another bug (issue 27058) this can only be seen if opening the window with the spreadsheet's properties. Because the title is not shown at the top of the OOo-window before saving the spreadsheet.)

Due to time problems this is re-targeted to OOo2.0

This bug occurs also with Writer if a picture is selected with text. Pasted selection displays the text but no picture (broken link logo instead). If picture is selected alone, copy-paste works.

Using Windows XP, Using OOo 2.1, The issue could be exactly reproduced. The step by step and summary of the issue is as follows: ---> Using Internet Explorer Version 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.050301-1519 - Open â€œOpen Office Writerâ€, â€œOpen Office Calcâ€, and Internet Explorer - On Internet Explorer, copy an image only (no text) by right clicking on the image and choosing â€œcopyâ€ - On Writer, right click on the page and click on â€œpasteâ€. The image is pasted correctly - On Calc, right click on any cell and click on â€œpasteâ€. A white box appears (not the picture) and there is link to a website inside the box. The link does not appear to be the website where the picture was copied from. - Now, on Internet Explorer, an image along with text is copied by highlighting the image and the text and right clicking and clicking on â€œcopyâ€ - On Writer, right click on the page and click on â€œpasteâ€. The picture is not shown. There are blank boxes, but the text is pasted properly. - On Calc, right click on any cell and click on â€œpasteâ€. The picture is not shown. A blank box is shown along with the copied text. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---> Using Mozilla Firefox version 18.104.22.168 - Open â€œOpen Office Writerâ€, â€œOpen Office Calcâ€, and Mozilla Firefox - On Mozilla, copy an image only (no text) by right clicking on the image and choosing â€œcopy imageâ€ - On Writer, paste it and it works fine. The image is pasted properly. - On Calc, paste it and it works fine. The image is pasted properly. - Now, on Mozilla, an image along with text is copied by highlighting the image and the text and right clicking and clicking on â€œcopyâ€ and NOT â€œcopy imageâ€ since that will give the result in the two previous steps. - On Writer, pasting it will result in a blank box with a link inside it. If the link is clicked, a new Mozilla window will open with the picture in it. The text part is pasted properly. - On Calc, pasting it will result in a blank box only (not the picture). The text part is not pasted. To work-around this bug, the image can be first pasted in â€œPaintâ€ or â€œMicrosoft Excelâ€. The image has to be copied again from there and then pasted into Writer or Calc. The image is pasted properly in this case. Please note that pasting into Microsoft Word and copying again from there will result in blank box and not the image. Pasting in Paint or Microsoft Excel first and copying from there will work with images only. The text part has to be copy pasted separately.

Sorry. The first file attached does not open and the second one is different when opened from this page. I converted the OO files to PDF since in the following link it mentions that attaching OO files don't work, but it doesn't work properly--> http://qa.openoffice.org/issue_handling/bug_writing_guidelines.html

In addition, My harddrive crashed and I have to office suite. My pastor recommended this. Since, I am using a trial of Office 2007. I tansfer text and pictures from one software to Word, in order to customize a report. This is usally a min of 26 pages. When transfering to open source write. The pictures and logos are broken links and blank. Interetingly, if I transfer from Word to Write I can right click on the picture and it will find the correct picture in the folder I create for each new client. I click it it tansfers. Word has expired. If I copy paste directly from the software to Write, I have to find each picture. There can be a hundred pictures. I look through once in the software that generates the report. Than find each again with no way to see if it is the correct picture. Therefore, I have to purchase office suite in the meantime.
