Description Stefan Weigel 2009-05-12 11:02:39 UTC
With OOo 3.1 a new feature has been introduced:

(When dragging a picture it gets transparent.)

This feature can now be found in Calc, Draw, and Impress. However, it can not be
found in Writer.

I am filing this issue as a DEFECT, not knowing if it is intended by some Spec.
to have this feature in all modules but Writer. If you know better, please feel
free to change Issue type to ENAHNCEMENT. Thanks.

It is available in Writer - but at the moment only visible for Drawing objects.
Because graphics in Draw/Impress and Calc are handled like drawing objects you
also see this effect for graphics. In Writer, graphics are a kind of frames,
thus you do not have the effect there.

Hi mru,

thanks for clarification! But other than closing this issue, i rather change it
into a feature request. Besides the technical background, from the users point
of view, having transparent pictures while dragging them in Writer is very
desirable. This is especially true, since this performance is already there in
Calc, Impress and Draw.

MRU->OD: keep this as kind of "reminder" when the
Writer-graphics-drawing-unification implementation has been finished. Thanks.
