OOP Version: 643C (Writer)
Operating System: Window XP

Bug in the display

(“->” means click by mouse)

1.	Open OpenOffice
2.	-> File -> New -> Text Document.
3.	->Show Draw Functions (it is on the left side of the page). It will 
open a small window named ‘Draw Functions’.
4.	->Freeform Line.
5.	With the help of mouse, draw lines everywhere on the page. Draw it on 
left side, right side, bottom, and top of the page (play with it).
6.	Save the document. Close the document, and then again open it.
7.	Observe the page. Note that everything has shifted towards the right 
side. While playing with the drawing tool, I draw on the left side margin, but 
now it is all gone.

Comment 9 eric.savary 2003-06-04 15:30:02 UTC
Reproduced again in a 645m3s1
In fact you need to Draw a Free Hand line across the document
*trespassing* the border of the page.
When reloading the document, the draw object is aligned to point 0:0
of the page even if before it had minus values as coordinates.
Comment 10 michael.brauer 2003-06-06 10:31:38 UTC
Drawing objects that extend the page borders are not supported, and it
is in fact a bug if it is possible to draw free lines that does so. In
fact, the object's positiion is not only changed when loading or
saving files, but also when adding a new paragarph in front of them.

Since this bug is not a data loss, I change the priority to P5 (that
is for instance defined a "slightly inconsistent user interface")
