Description Unknown 2003-01-17 16:46:08 UTC
In a writer document, I added an EPS file created by Adobe Illustrator 10. 
Everything looks ok, and can print ok.  If I use the cropping tools to crop the
image, the image shows croped on the page, and stuff is reformatted.  When I
print the file, the image is not cropped, and the whole image is printed.

Chuck, thank you for using and supporting OOo.

Does this problem still exist in 1.1 Beta 2?

If so, could you attach the necessary files for us to consistently
reproduce the issue?

I tested this, and it still happens.  The image appears cropped in the
document, but when you print to a PS printer, it prints the full image
and not the cropped one.  It seems that cropping bitmapped based
images is working, because if I print to my PCL based printer (It
seems that EPS files will only print on a PS printer, otherwise it
prints the preview instead of the actual image) it prints the preview
cropped correctly.  I have attached a sample that displays this
property.  Thank you for such a great program, and looking into this bug.

HI->SSA: Also reproducible in current version.

SSA->THB: Please, have a look. Seems to be DrawEPS related.

Yeah, looks like somehow we don't get the clipping right. Will have a look.
Comment 7 thb 2004-04-30 21:18:33 UTC
Now, this is kinda funny. The bug is Windows-only, Linux and Solaris work just right in this case. The 
problem is, for the *nix platforms, we use our own PostScript backend, whereas for Windows, we 
must rely on GDI doing things properly. Which, obviously, it doesn't in this case. I'm currently 
checking whether there are any known workarounds for that problem (we _do_ set a proper clipping, 
only that GDI ignores it).

Comment 9 thb 2004-05-05 12:32:01 UTC
Fixed by manually adding the relevant PostScript code to the
POSTSCRIPT_PASSTHROUGH, which is performed anyway. Note that the current fix
will not work for complex clip regions (polygons etc.), but there's currently no
codepath in the office that would make use of this feature (i.e. the current fix
is sufficient for now).

Fixed, please verify.
