Hi Sven,

as discussed this one is for you.

Comment 7 sven.jacobi 2003-04-15 15:32:13 UTC
SJ->HDU: We are converting GDIMetafiles into EMF files if pasting into
other applications on windows. I found out that the problem already
happened if recording our own GDI metafile format.

I changed the target, because I think that this issue is really
important and should be fixed for 6.1 Beta2.

Could you please have a look at it and provide this Issue to the
proper person.

Comment 8 2003-04-15 18:59:35 UTC
HDU->SJ: have a look at the MetaTextArrayAction::Write() method and especially 
  the line with WriteByteString( maUnicodeStr, pData->meActualCharSet :-) 
Comment 9 sven.jacobi 2003-04-16 10:04:13 UTC
This bug needs to be fixed, I will start just now.
Comment 10 sven.jacobi 2003-04-16 11:37:31 UTC
This bug has been fixed now, it will be available in OOo1.1 Beta2.

The fix takes place in cws[mav4]->vcl/source/gdi/metaact.cxx

Thanks for providing this bug.
Comment 11 sven.jacobi 2003-04-22 11:14:01 UTC
SJ->FST: This bug is now ready to be verified on cws[mav4].

Comment 19 josef.cacek 2003-06-04 12:35:11 UTC
I created new attachment with screenshot from clipbrd.exe, data was
copied from English OOo11Beta2. 
Can you provide screeshot like this from your windows, if this runs
correctly for you?

part of setup.ini:
ProfileItem gid_Profileitem_Bootstrap_Buildid
	ModuleID	 = gid_Module_Root;
	ProfileID	 = gid_Profile_Bootstrap_Ini;
	Section		 = "Bootstrap";
	Key			 = "buildid";
	Value		 = "644(Build:8600)";
	Order		 = 6;
Comment 20 frank 2003-06-04 13:25:00 UTC
It's the same version and build ID.

I've attached a screenshot of the clipboard viewer on my system.

Comment 22 hassmanm 2003-06-04 15:19:12 UTC
I have the same results as kwart on OO1.1beta2 on windows 2000
(Service Pack 2).

I have tested it on two computers (but with the same configuration)
with original OO1.1beta2 and also on some czech localized builds of
OO1.1beta2 and I have obtained same results as kwart in attachment
(id=6649) everytime!

From clipbrd.exe - there is possible to save content of the clipboard
(with all clipboard formats) and later open it in clipbrd.exe.

TO fst: Can you please put your saved clipboard as attachement, so we
can compare it on our computers?

The clipboard content of my W2k SP3
Comment 24 josef.cacek 2003-06-05 11:11:20 UTC
It's really OK in your clipboard.
I have also Win2K SP3 and the bug is there :(.
Has the file vcl644mi.dll from your installation 1,884,226 B?
(MD5sum: a6fd0d576ab9fa16dea074fbdb1628b7 *vcl644mi.dll)
Comment 25 frank 2003-06-05 11:35:35 UTC

Byte count and md5sum are the same for vcl644mi.dll

Comment 26 josef.cacek 2003-06-05 12:06:11 UTC
I've get it.
My locale and default language settings was set to Czech. If I change
it to English (US) it's OK.
Probably default language settings for system is the main problem. I
have WinNT4 with configuration [default regional settings:Czech;
regional settings: English] on second machine and bug is also there.

Can you correct also this bug?
Comment 27 hassmanm 2003-06-05 12:25:50 UTC
Yes kwart has true. The same for me on win2k Service Pack 2.

The bug depends on default locale. Not on current locale.

1) When I have in Control panels-Regional Option:
  Your locale(location):

  Language settings for your system:
    Central Europe (defalt)
    Wester Europe and United States

BUG happened

2) When I change this to (and restart computer):
  Your locale(location):

  Language settings for your system:
    Central Europe
    Wester Europe and United States (Defalt)
Everyting seems O.K.
Comment 28 frank 2003-06-05 13:52:51 UTC

finally we found out what the problem is. Sorry to tell you, but we
can't fix it. The problem is that the picture view is an WMF format.
WMF is not capable to handle unicode characters. So this is a problem
of the underlying picture format. 

What we have fixed is the ability to use the other formats in
conjunction with metafiles.

Sorry for no better reply.
