Description Unknown 2002-05-14 15:53:54 UTC
When saving a document containing a graphic created in "Draw" and then "cut-n-pasted" into a document created in "Writer" as Word-98 (.DOC) format, the graphic is appears corrupted in MS- Word. The graphic in question has 4 text-boxes with tails pointing to a line, below the line are another four boxes with text in each box. When the document is viewed in OpenOffice Writer -- everything looks fine. When viewed in Word-98 or Word-2000, the text-boxes are missing. While I would like to call this a MS bug (:-), I suspect it isn'tn and I doubt they would fix it. I can cut-n-paste that same graphic into Word and it works (on both Word and Writer). I can ftp/send the graphic if you desire.

Created attachment 1643 [details] Example document that if saved as MS-Word will demonstrate the problem

NOTE: I was unable to "recreate" the case where OpenOffice Writer was able to read the document correctly. (That happened under 641 and in a 10 page confidential document.) So at this point, I should simple say that the graphic is "corrupted". The workaround, BTW, is to save the graphic in MS-Word. Then continue to edit in OpenOffice. NOTE: I have attached a .sxw file as an example.

Thanks for posting Dana. Duplicated the problem on Win NT 4.0, OO 1.0. Will include some screenshots.

Dana, a work around for this issue exists: Cut and "Paste special" the drawing as a GDI metafile. OOo will export this workaround correctly.

JA->MRU: please have a look at this. Reassiged...
Comment 8 michael.ruess 2002-12-09 11:32:32 UTC
MRU->CMC: in 644s it has already been improved. But the objects above the line are a bit too small after export.
Comment 9 caolanm 2002-12-09 15:37:02 UTC
cmc->sj: The drawing group just gets passed to SvxMSDffManager's AddSdrObject to export it. Any ideas why this is going awry ?
Comment 10 sven.jacobi 2002-12-11 12:58:52 UTC
It seems that the wrong bounding geometry is used for callouts, which is the reason that some objects are skewed after grouping. I will investigate this.
Comment 11 michael.ruess 2004-04-28 15:15:12 UTC
re-targeted to OO later.
