Description lxvi 2009-01-25 00:35:53 UTC
I was working on a "How to print envelopes using Open Office org" for my parents on their new HP a6442p (has an Intel Dual core E2200) and had inserted a number of screen shots of the Envelope dialog, then resized the images, then decided to put them into a table. This is when the problems began. The images would not cut and paste when I selected them with their accompanying text. So I tried dragging the anchor into the table cell. This would work, but did not yeild the results I wanted, so I tried switching the anchor type to "As Character". This resulted in the images being resized to VERY small even though the properties still said they were the size I had made them. Eventually I closed the document because I needed to restart the system to get it to detect the memory card reader so I could pull some more images from an xD card. Now when I try to reopen this document on that system, or my HP laptop (also running Vista, and OOo 2.3.0), or my linux desktop (FC4, OOo 2.0), OpenOffice will just hang for a long time (as in, I get tired of waiting after several minutes).

MRU->OD: opening the attached document will result in a loop while generating the Writer view. Please have a look, referring to lxvi the documents an amount of graphics located in table cells.

due to limited resources I have to re-target this issue to OOo 3.x
