Description bryancole 2005-04-12 21:06:06 UTC
When linking an OLE Draw or Impress document into a writer document, the wrong page may be displayed in writer. (I.e. in Writer, select Insert->Object->OLE Object->Create From File, and check the new "Link to File" box) I guess this is because the OLE/URL system has no means of specify which DrawPage to display. In OOo-v1.1.x OLE linking was not possible and all embedded Draw/Impress documents had just a single page, by definition. However, external Draw/Impress files can obviously have more than one page. Now it is possible to link to these files, a means of selecting which page to display is required.

Just to add to this: at present the *last* DrawPage of a linked OLE File is always displayed. The problem occurs if you want to show a previous page in the linked document. Note, this problem is not apparent for OLE Calc objects: linked spreadsheets always seem to show the correct sheet (in a multi-sheet document).
Comment 2 bryancole 2005-04-14 10:26:01 UTC
My previous comment that Linked OLC Calc spreadsheets are OK is incorrect: When a document with linked embedded spreadsheets is re-loaded, the last sheet is always shown, rather than the intended one.

Comment 4 michael.ruess 2005-04-14 11:05:10 UTC
This is a specific behaviour of Drawing component as OLE server. Reassigned to Drawing comp.
Comment 5 wolframgarten 2005-04-14 14:50:56 UTC
Reproducible, in some way. When I insert a draw/impress document with a masterpage the masterpage is displayed in writer. But this is ok when inserting one of our samples....
Comment 7 wolframgarten 2005-04-14 14:52:02 UTC
Insert the bugdoc as OLE in writer,it will show the masterpage. Reassigned.
