Description djones 2003-05-12 16:42:13 UTC
OO Write applications that contain EPS graphics do not print correctly and are
not saved correctly in Word 97/2000/XP format.

The EPS graphic shows correctly in OO write.

When printed, the OO document is aborted by the printer. In this case, the
printer is an HP 4si with Postscript level 2. Apparently the postscript file
generated by OO is not detected as a valid Postscript file.

When the OO document is saved as a Word document, the graphic is blank when
displayed in Word. The problem printing appears to fall over into the Word
conversion as well.

If, however, Word is used to import the graphic and a Word document saved, OO
correctly reads and displays the the graphic.

I have an example of the problem. I haven't figured out how to send to you yet,

Hi DJones,

thanks for using and supporting OpenOffice...

I opened your attached *.sxw file with OpenOffice 1.1RC5 on Solaris
and printed it ==> everything went fine...

Please try with our neweswt version and send an ew comment if your 
problem occurs again...
If there's no new comment from you until 10/15/2003 we need to close 
this Issue then...
reassigned to mci

@ mru: hi mru, printing works fine here on Solaris... please test the 
       word export...

MRU->SJ: Isn't it possible to export the eps-preview to MS fomats?
Comment 5 sven.jacobi 2003-10-08 09:12:21 UTC
SJ->MRU: Aren't we doing so ? If not then this is a bug.

Word is not supporting EPS graphics in their documents, this means
that we do not have a chance to fix this bug without having our own
Postscrip interpreter. This Issue should then go to someone else who
is repsonsible for new features.

The printing problem does not occur anymore with OO 1.1 (checked by HI
on his Linux system).

MRU->SJ: I checked it with src680m8, the graphics frame becomes empty
when exported to MS format. As long as MS does not support EPS, the
preview should be exported as Metafile.

re-targeted to "OO later"
