Description Unknown 2002-04-05 12:07:16 UTC
I noticed in version 641D (current release), that when I try to import a WORD
document to OpenOffice, the type of the linked(!) Visio objects in the imported
OO document changes to type "Graphics". Because of this, I cannot edit them in
Visio anymore if I doubleclick on the object. The problem is reproducible. I can
send samples, if needed!
(Linked objects in MS Word are not embedded in the document. To edit them,
you need the original file which was used when the object was created.)
The importing of the embedded Visio objects are perfect, there is no
problem with them at all. I suspect, that this might not be a Visio-only problem...

That's easily to explain. Star-/OpenOffice does not support linked
OLE-objects since version 5.0. So the import is not able to handle
this and these objects are imported as graphics (the last view of the
object is stored inside the word file.
MRU->CJ: Is it planned for the future that Star-/OpenOffice will have
support for linked OLE objects back?

Dear developers,
would not it make sense to change component to Drawing for this issue?

Hi Mathias, I have changed the current owner to your owner. Please take the
ownership of these enhancements.

This is important, but issue 25696 (now closed - and maybe too different) was
important too.

Both functions (embedding and editing) would be nice.
