Description norbert2 2009-01-22 19:41:46 UTC
Hi, please...

- open a writer document
- Draw an object
- Drag the object and note that you can move it out of the left page border but
not out of the other three borders.

(Dropping outside the page

It should not be possible to drag the object out of the left border.

I guess that this is a regression introduced by fixing Issue 1761 where centered
pages have been introduced.

Please try to drop the drawing outside the left border some times. than try to
move it to the left. the object than snaps back to the left border. This is a
bug similar to the one described in  Issue 73807.

MRU->OD: the "object limits while dragging" will be displayed out of the left
page border which is not possible on the right/bottom/top page border.

a full solution for this defect would be quite hard and inefficient due to the
fact that the document can contain pages of different sizes. This would mean to
calculate a complex area for the dragging.
But some improvement are possible:
- restrict the dragging area on the left to left border of the page which is
most on the left - the same for the right limit of the dragging area.
- assure that the positioning attributes are adjusted, if a dragging position is
outside the page.

adjusting priority as this issue is in my opinion not release-relevant for OOo 3.4

Indeed, at the left I can drag and drop objects like shapes, frames, pictures outside the sheet area. That's useless, when I release the mouse button the object will move back automatically to left sheet edge. 
At all other sheet edges drag  and drop will stop at sheet edge.
