Description brainy 2009-06-25 17:42:51 UTC
Since OOo 3.1 the EMF Export from Draw no longer seems to work.
Windows, IrfanView and Adobe Photoshop are showing blank pages or report errors
if I try to open the exported emf file.
I have tested it on two different PCs with the same result.

With OOo 3.0 it seemed to work, but the images sometimes looked jagged.
So I updated and now it doesn't work at all.

Works with a rectangle but not with an ellipse... Reproducible, Reassigned.

Yes, EMF is seriously broken.  Could the priority be raised ? 
Does seem to be allergic to circles and freelance curves
Diagrams with just rectangles and lines are ok.  

I also noted that some other formats are broken too: 
GIF with Save Transparancy is distorting the colors.
WMF is truncating the edges. 
XPM reported a "decode error" from Ifranview. 

PNG,BMP,JPG(90%), and TIF are working so far, but I notice some "fuzzyness", not
sure if that is just my monitor though.
