Description dma2002 2006-05-27 11:56:51 UTC
The task is to make a text document in Writer using block diagrams. I want to draw a circle or a rectangle and so on and insert an equation into it. So I type an equation using Math object, then I select it, then I copy it into the clipboard. I draw a regtangle/circle, double-click on it and trying to paste an equation - no result. This feature could be useful when drawing, for example, block diagrams of control syslems, algorithms and so on.

It should be possible to place other objects (like Graphics or OLE's) inside (the editing mode) of drawing objects.

It should be. But it isn't. In Draw i can make a workaround: first draw a circle (or any other figure), then drag into it Math object (equation). So I already have a Math object inside a Draw object. And then I should paste this construction into a Writer document. "Math in Draw in Writer" is crazy enough and can cause OLE-troubles!
