Description rglaschick 2003-01-20 22:45:25 UTC
If Text should flow around a picture extending into the left margin,
and there is a left margin in 
the text, 
there is mostly extra white space (of margin size) between the picture and the text. 

Extra white space depends on picture position; it may vanish.
MS Word does not show this extra 
white margin (-> import problem too)

Sample document to display the defect is available.

Duplicated with OOo 1.1beta2 on Windows 2000.

I would like to verify with the word document.

Screenshot. I opened the .sxw file with OOo1.1beta2, saved it in Word
2000 format and opened it in Word 2000.

Screenshot. This is how winword (sometimes) handles graphics &
indentation. Please do not make this happen in OOo!

HI->MRU: Please verify the behavior between OOo and MS.
Comment 9 michael.ruess 2003-06-03 14:16:42 UTC
MRU->AMA: This is the problem we discussed a few days ago. if there is
a left indent, it also added as space right of a graphic, when it
reaches the text area. I also think, that we should change this "Feature".
Comment 10 andreas.martens 2003-06-04 15:47:52 UTC
Our current behaviour is a feature and we did real coding for it ;-)
We implemented it to display some HTML pages in the right way. If we
don't want to change the layout of existing documents we could define
a viewoption or extend our wrap property to make this disengageable.
Comment 11 falko.tesch 2003-10-01 15:42:29 UTC
FT->AMA: You are now the owner of filter issues.
Please cross-check with Oliver-Rainer if this already solved/affected 
by his new implementation for objects in Word.

Only minor issue. Re-targeted to OO later.
Comment 14 drieschner 2008-12-29 21:46:40 UTC
It is really a disturbing "feature". Is there a workaround?
