Description herrdeh 2009-05-16 08:40:58 UTC
Graphics made in calc can not be copied to the Mac OS X clipboard. So they
cannot be processed e.g. by, inkscape or so; the workaround I found
is to copy the graphics to writer, export it as a pdf - and then process it… - a
little complicated.

Very nice would be a pdf-export to the Mac OS X clipboard in order to achieve
high-quality vector graphics on the Mac OS X side.

Works pretty now in 3.2.0 (320m4 Build 9450).

You are great, folks!

… sorry, seems to have worked a few times by accident - now the funktionality is
gone again… (320m4 Build 9450).

I can paste an object to, but find it empty. The clipboard states it
co contains an image - but displayes plain white as well.

Workaround: Print to preview, save the preview.

Mac OS X 10.4.11, PPC

The same in ooo320m19, build 9505
Comment 4 stefan.baltzer 2010-11-29 14:34:54 UTC
Confirming issue.
SBA -> PL: As seen, both inserted pictures as well as inserted draw objects copy
well from Calc to i.e. TextEdit (seen in OOO330_m17/OOo 3.3. RC7, Mac OS
10.6.5), but Charts do not. Changed summary accordingly. Please proceed, thx.

The reason would seem to be that for charts and other OLE objects like formula
only internal formats are put into the clipboard; adding at least an image
format should fix this (a high level format like SVG or PDF would be even nicer,
but an image should be easy to produce when a Metafile is already available).

It seems the common code for this would be in
svtools/source/misc/embedtransfer.cxx in the SvEmbedTransferableHelper class.

@mav: cd suggested you might want to have a look at this ?

Setting the target to 3.x for now.
Comment 7 Martin Hollmichel 2011-03-15 12:50:58 UTC
set target to 3.x since not release relevant for 3.4.
