Description bugbear 2005-04-12 11:16:34 UTC
I made a simple graphic (a single ellipse) in draw, and exported it as EPSF with preview. I checked the content with kghostview, and it was correct. I then placed (embedded) the ellipse on a new draw-ing, and created a rectangle around the ellipse. I then exported THIS page as EPSF. Viewing this file with kghostview showed a rectangle, with no ellipse; THIS IS WRONG. A little low level postscript hacking showed that the ellipse was WAY off the bottom of the page (by about 10 pages with, judging by eye) Bizarrely, printing postscript to a file generates correct output, so there *is* working code in there somewhere, but it's not being used on export.

Created attachment 24973 [details] altered version of super.eps giving partial demonstration of the nature of the problem (view with kghostview or similar)

The "hacked" file shrinks the super.eps graphic by a factor of 100; it also disables the postscript clip command. This allows the super.eps to be place in the middle of an A4 page (it comes out rather small ;-), and shows that the "sub" graphic is present, but is in completely the wrong place. Since it is normally outside the "super" pages clip bos, it is also invisible, whic is why I killed the clip command.

sj->wg: This seems to be a eps in eps problem, I will check this.
Comment 9 sven.jacobi 2005-05-24 12:01:15 UTC
Because of a too huge workload I can't fix this issue for OOo 2.01 -> changed target to OO Later.

Successfully replicated with OOo 1.1.3, UBUNTU Linux 5.04 running on a P4 1.7 GHz 512MB RAM machine.

This problem exists in OOo 2.0.3. Opening an EPS file created by any app (OOo Draw and Inkscape and GIMP tested) in OOo Draw simply produces a plain rectangle labelled with some of the file's header information.

An old bug... It still exists in OOo 2.4.1, on Ubuntu 8.04 (OOo 2.4.1-1ubuntu2).
