Description aoo-bugs 2009-09-21 16:41:56 UTC
OOo overwrites an existing image file without warning, if the file name is
entered manually. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Select a graphics in an ODT (e.g. using Navigator)
2. Right click & "Save Graphics" under deliberative name without extension
(which is added automatically) - e.g. "x" for x.jpg - and press "Save"
3. Select a different graphics and repeat the same steps. Choose the same file
name - here: "x"
4. Clicking button "Save" saves the image file and overwrites the existing file
without warning.

In contrast, choosing the file name by picking an existing file (by clicking or
double cklicking) leads to the expected warning "File already exists. Overwrite?" 

OOo 3.1.1 / OOO310m19 (Build 9420) / Suse Linux 10.3 / KDE

same happens on DEV300m57, linux build, OOo file dialogs

The issue only exists for writer - impress and draw give a warning, that the
file already exists. (btw.: in contrast to writer, impress and draw have a
checkbox "automatic file extension" in the save dialog).

Also true for 3.1.0 on WinXP with systemdialogs.
Comment 3 aoo-bugs 2009-09-21 17:51:22 UTC
made Summary text more comprehensible

CCing me and sba, as requested
Comment 5 merschmann 2009-09-22 14:07:17 UTC
This was imho a new feature in 3.0.0 (2.4.3 does not have it)

I found it broken in OOo 3.0.0 (OOO300m9) on Kubuntu, so maybe the bug was there
from the first implementation.
Comment 6 michael.ruess 2009-09-22 15:35:10 UTC
MRU->OS: can confirm this on WinXP. Insert a graphic into Writer document.
Choose to "Save graphic..." end enter the name of an existing graphic WITHOUT
the file suffix, the file will be overwritten without warning. This is not the
case e.g. in Draw.
Comment 7 aoo-bugs 2009-10-29 16:10:12 UTC
I think this is an example for the data_loss keyword.

Comment 10 merschmann 2010-07-13 15:37:46 UTC
Still there in DEV300m84...
Comment 11 stefan.baltzer 2011-01-14 11:12:14 UTC
SBA->OS: As discussed, set target to OOo 3.4
Comment 12 Oliver Specht 2011-03-23 06:37:59 UTC
The problem is that the filter (XOutBitmap::WriteGraphic()) always writes the file with extension. 

Fixed in cws os151 in

Additionally the automatic extension flag has been added to the dialog.

->od: Please review
