Description michaelis 2003-07-18 16:39:54 UTC
Go through the following steps:
1) Open the Draw application with an empty sheet
2) Insert two shapes, eg. two ellipses
3) Connect them with a connector
   => The handles of the connector are shown in red.
4) Now do a "Edit/Copy" (or Ctrl+C) followed immediatly
   by a "Edit/Insert" (or Ctrl+V)
   => The handles of the connector are green now. In
      fact you see a second, "free" connector with green
      handles that lies exacly over the first, "bound"
      connector with the red handles.
5) Do not touch the free connector with the mouse! Save
   the document and close it.
6) Reopen the document.
   => Now the two connector aren't identical anymore :-(

Workaround: Edit the free connector with the mouse. Now
the new geometry is saved with the connector.

Set to new.

Reproduceable in a current internal version. Reassigned to Armin.

AW: Yes, this indeed happens. Problem is that the new connector does
no longer have it's connections which define the layouting. At load
time, the layouting is refreshed, but without the object connections,
looks different. In the living office the old layout is just taken
over. I am not sure if we have a possibility in our XML format to save
a 'remembered' layout of a connector. But this issue needs to be accepted.

AW->CL: We will need possibilities in API and XML file format to
handle also un-connected connectors which will need to save their last
current connection layout. Please do not forget to mention this as
possible file format change to MIB also.
