Description mehlng 2003-04-02 12:42:16 UTC
When dragging an image and (trying to) insert it into a table, it doesn't being
dropped where your cursor is, it tends to be dropped where the object's image
left-right corner is and it doesn't being dropped into cells in the current
object's row almost never. it seems like a random bug - no rules for which cells
should work.

Comment 2 mehlng 2003-04-02 12:44:53 UTC
I've also noticed it leaves 'junk' in the table's cells
Comment 3 h.ilter 2003-04-02 13:07:39 UTC
HI->MRU: Try to set the graphic in each cell, you'll need patience.
Comment 4 michael.ruess 2003-04-22 13:10:34 UTC
MRU->OD: when moving a graphic inside a table you can see the anchor
jumping into the first cell while crossing cell borders. Also when the
dotted "help line" around a graphic is moved over the anchor, the
mentioned "junk" can be noticed.

OD->MRU (22.04.2003):
Described defect isn't missing functionality or crash or freeze and
isn't broken - also in OOo 1.0.3/SO 6.0 PP3 and SO 5.2. Thus, decrease
priority to P4.
Because of priority, please re-target issue.
Comment 6 michael.ruess 2003-04-22 13:56:34 UTC
Changed target to OO 2.0, because fix isn't so trivial as it may look.
Also the problem isn't newly intoduced (was available in much older
Comment 7 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2003-04-23 11:26:08 UTC
OD (23.04.2003): accepted.
Comment 8 mehlng 2003-04-23 22:31:19 UTC
I rated it P2 as it's a missing functionality as you have no trivial
way to move an image to a cell in a table. Having this bug in a
release will possibly cause alot of frustration to naive users.
Comment 9 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2003-04-24 07:14:48 UTC
OD->mehlng (24.04.2003):
We rated the described defect with priority P4 because the defect
occurs, if at the proposed 'drop position' - the left-top-corner
respectively the right-left-corner of the graphic depending on the
text direction - is *no* paragraph. Observe the anchor of the graphic
during its move and You will succeed to place the graphic in the
proposed cell
Yes, You are right, the defect is very annoying and we will fix it,
but - as above mentioned - the corresponding code is not so trivial
and such a change in the current beta phase is somehow critical.
