1. Start a presentation. 2. Do something,for example,you can input some words and then save the document. 3. "Insert"->"Object"->"OLE Object...",please select "create from file" and click Search button to select the document that you have saved. 4. Please select "Link to file" and click "OK". 5. "File"->"Save",close this document,and open it again. The procedure stops responding,it seems to be a endless loop.

Well, this loop is somewhat to be expected. It is almost a feature not a bug. We have here a document that contains a link to itself. When it is loaded and the OLE object is rendered the document has to be loaded again. That OLE object contains another OLE object that links to the object and so on. As a result the document is loaded again and again and thus causes the loop. The same behaviour can be observed in the Calc but no in the Writer. That means that this problem is a) not restricted to Impress (and Draw of course) and b) that there is a solution.

Please take over.

In which way does this issue block the issue 84291? I just can not imagine a feature that would need this scenario, could you please explain it in details.

Setting the target.
Comment 5 amy2008 2009-04-20 07:13:25 UTC
Edit summary. Edit Module from Presentation to framework, because Spreadsheet, Chart and Presentation have the same problem. CC to me Regards Li Meiying
