Description stuartprescott 2003-05-13 03:04:46 UTC
I love the 3D effects that OOo Draw has -- they are great for dressing up the 
stale, technical graphics that I have to produce...


if I export from OOo.Draw in various formats (WMF, EMF, PNG) the 3D effect part 
of the figure is exported as a raster (I realise there are technical 
limitations to doing this as a vector) but not of user-configurable resolution. 

It appears that the export of the 3D effect always exports as screen-resolution.

Enhancement: allow the export resolution to be user-configurable

(actually, I think this might be a deeper issue, as even when exporting in 
other raster formats, the user is not prompted as to the desired resolution)

thanks in advance!

You can select the resolution when you select BMP.  JPG, WMF, and
others do not seem to ask.

Hi Scott,

thanks for the idea of exporting as BMP to get around this -- 
unfortunately it doesn't work for me.

Whenever I export to BMP (just a simple image on the default A4 
canvass) the same BMP file comes out regardless of the settings I 
apply in the "resolution" dialogue. The BMP is 747x1089 which is 
about 36dpi of the original image. I haven't found a way around this.

Perhaps we're uncovering deeper issues for which separate bug reports 
need to be filed? Let me know if you want me to investigate further 
and do so.
