Description Peter Huber 2014-05-05 20:23:00 UTC
In OpenOffice Draw, when a line contains an arrow and a text, export to SVG fails. The error message is:

Error saving the document ...:
Write Error.
The file could not be written.

The error does not occur when lines contain only either an arrow or a text.

Steps to reproduce the error:

- Create a new OpenOffice Draw Document.
- Draw a line.
- Define an arrow style for the line other than "- none -" on one or both sides.
- Add some text to the line.
- Export the document to SVG.
--> Error

After removing either the arrow or the text from the line, the export succeeds.

Can not reproduce
AOO410m18(Build:9764)  -  Rev. 1589052
2014-04-22 12:11 - Linux x86_64

What exactly do you mean by "Add some text to the line." ?

Comment 3 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-05-06 08:48:43 UTC
Still Reproducible with sample document and with "AOO 4.1.0 Release – German UI / German locale [AOO410m18(Build:9764)  -   Rev. 1589052 2014-04-22 11:43:54]" on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)", “historic” 4. User Profile used for all predecessor versions

Was still ok with OOo 3.3.0, so Regression!
Comment 4 Rainer Bielefeld 2014-05-06 08:56:49 UTC
(a) Already reproducible with AOO 4.0.0 (WIN)
(b) Was still ok wiht AOO 3.4.1
(c) Message: "Error saving the document:
              The file could not be written"
(d) Still Reproducible with server installation of "AOO 4.1.0-dev – English UI
    / German locale - [AOO410m14(Build:9760)  -  Rev. 1583418 2014-05-03]"

Regression from AOO341, no crash but filter fails (exception from export filter is fetched). Taking a look...
Comment 6 Armin Le Grand 2014-07-04 12:14:02 UTC
Found the problem, the SVG export tries to generate a name for the shape, but only in one case. The other cases add the locall ycreated ID directly before calling SVGActionWriter::WriteMetaFile, handig over a null pointer. That pointer is handed trough to and used in SVGActionWriter::ImplWriteActions, in the case of line start/end definitions *without* testing it. Adding the tests does the trick.
It looks as if line start/end support was added later, this may be the reason that AOO341 does not crash, but the arrowheads may probably be missing.

Comment 8 Armin Le Grand 2014-07-04 12:22:27 UTC
Comitted, done.

Also a safe fix with regression state (from AOO341). A candidate for AOO411, requesting.

OKay, added to AOO411, done.
Comment 13 Rekha S 2014-07-18 22:37:31 UTC
Verified in the new build that I dont to see this issue .
Tested on :  AOO 4.1.1 m2 on Windows 8.
I see that a line with text in Draw is getting exported to SVG format 

Comment 14 Pedro 2014-07-19 10:01:21 UTC
Could not reproduce the error with AOO411m2(Build:9771)  -  Rev. 1608452 under Windows 7 SP1 x64.
Apparently the bug is fixed.

Following the instructions in the ODG file revealed another bug
Comment 15 fanyuzhen 2014-07-23 17:21:51 UTC
Change the status to Verified / Fixed based on testing results in comment 13 and comment 14
