Description doze_worm 2009-03-04 03:03:27 UTC
[Steps] 1. Create a Writer doc. 2. "Insert" -> "Drawing Object" -> "Formula", Type y=ax2+bx+c in it. 3. Save as .doc file. 4. Open the .doc file with MS WORD 2003/2007 [Result] The operator "+" misses in WORD. And the formula cannot be edited in MS WORD.

Created attachment 60659 [details] a doc file to reporduce the problem
Comment 2 michael.ruess 2009-03-05 12:07:38 UTC
The display problem cannot be reproduced here; Word 2003 shows the attached document properly. MRU->MAV: please care about the mentioned activation problem. It is not possible to activate any OOo object in MS Word in an exported document.
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2009-04-28 11:58:10 UTC
IMO this problem is severe enough and worth fixing in OOo 3.2.
Comment 4 Mathias_Bauer 2009-05-15 13:52:43 UTC
I could successfully export a Writer document with a simple formula to Word format (don't forget the Load/Save settings!) and edit in Word 2003.
Comment 5 Mathias_Bauer 2009-05-15 13:55:02 UTC
The missing "+" sign is a font problem and it only happens for the metafile. Once the formula is edited in Word, the "+" becomes visible. Thomas, any comment from your side? In case you think that the font problem can be fixed, mru could reopen the issue for you (or maybe sj).
Comment 6 michael.ruess 2009-06-30 16:07:28 UTC
Reopening issue. Problem is not that the object conversion - It must be possible to activate our own objects in a doc opened in Word (if OOo is either installed on this machine). The changed summary says it - only the activation problem is handled now in this issue.
Comment 7 michael.ruess 2009-06-30 16:09:08 UTC
Reassigned to MAV for caring about OOo's OLE-server problem in exported doc files.

Comment 9 mikhail.voytenko 2009-08-31 12:59:36 UTC
Changing the target to OOo3.x because of not enough resources. mav->mru: Please set the target back if you believe that the bug is important enough to be treated as a show-stopper.
