Description lobstericus 2003-11-27 14:37:23 UTC
One can easily create drawings and spreadsheets in OO with embedded equations.
This is a great feature for connecting mathematical ideas to illustrative
drawings or arithmetic instantiations of mathematical formula in a spreadsheet. 

A great feature of writer is the ability to drop into an embedded editor to work
on a drawing or a spreadsheet within writer.

However, if you import a spreadsheet that contains embedded OLE equations into
writer, you can no longer edit the equations. Similarly, if you import a drawing
into writer, you can no longer edit embedded equations.

And, of course, if you create either a drawing or spreadsheet from within
writer, you cannot add equations.

No, OOo was not designed to edit OLE objects inside OLE objects. 
This would mean an additional implementation.
Comment 3 khbellgardt 2005-04-28 07:29:03 UTC
It is possible to add equation to imported ole-objects by copy&paste. But after
that they can no longer be edited. I think this issue is a serious drawback of
OOo, especially in scientific applications.

Seems to be related to issue 7635.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
