Description capstone737 2004-01-23 01:36:11 UTC
We have an information piece that was created in Word97 and OOo doesn't handle
very well at all. It is 2 pages of 3 columns each in landscape with pictures. It
has quite a lot wrong with it, so the best way would be to just open it and see
the problems.

Reassigned to MRU
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2004-01-27 08:00:29 UTC
Yeah, not only the page layout is 3-columnded; the text inside these columns is
also put in text boxes. The positioning of such textboxes will be heavily
improved for OO 2.0 (you can test this with one of the next snapshots, maybe
680m22 or sth. like this).

MRU->CMC: only a minor thing's left for you. On first page the textbox
"Wheelchair Rugby" is anchored to the wrong paragraph.

cmc->mmaher: Can you have a check of this while I'm out of office, don't trust
the UI, check for the 0x01, 0x08 anchor inside the WordDocument stream (delete
as necessary to boil down to the graphic and affected paragraphs), don't get
excited that the document probably looks like rubbish, all that will work when
the sw object layout workspaces get integrated (in theory at least)
