Description leepatton 2006-09-14 21:58:28 UTC
After drawing some figures, and grouping them into one object. I then convert the object to bitmap by right clicking on the object and selecting "Convert -> To Bitmap." I can convert the image back to a drawing object from the bitmap if I hit immediately click "undo." However, If I forget to undo this before I close the application, then I cannot recover my original drawing object from the bitmap when I re-open the presentation. And therefore, I cannot make any more changes to my drawing. If the drawing object can be recovered from the bitmap during the "undo" process, can there be a menu to explicitly perform this conversion even after the application has been closed?

Being consistent everything should be undoable after restarting the application then. I think that will be hard to realize... Reassigned.

Maybe I wasn't clear enough in my original post. My point was that it is *somehow* possible to convert *back* from bitmap to drawing objects that are editable. So, why then can't this conversion be done explicitly through a menu or button? My point about the drawing object to bitmap conversion being *undoable* was just to illustrate that the reverse conversion is *somehow* possible. So, there is no issue with having to make *everything* undoable after restarting the application for the sake of consistency. I would just like the drawing->bitmap conversion to be like, for example, chaning the font. You can change from Times to Arial. After application restart, you can change back from Arial to Times via a menu/button. Similarly, I would like the ability to change back from bitmap to drawing object. Hope that makes the issue more clear.

IMHO need to add option "convert and keep source data" to enable bitmap->drawing object after application restart. AOO410m18(Build:9764) - Rev. 1589052 2014-04-22 12:11 - Linux x86_64 Debian
