Description tkomulai 2004-03-10 08:58:00 UTC
At first glance there doesn't seem to be any way to crop graphics inserted in
the presentation.  There's no 'Crop' option in any of the obvious places, the
context menu, in the 'Position and Size' dialog, nor in the menus (the order
roughly corresponds to the places one (I) looks first.)

The tiny crop icon in the image toolbar is too easy to overlook as the rest of
the items in the toolbar are mostly useless, at least for me.

I retested the ease of finding the crop tool in Impress versions 2.0.4 and 3.0 
Beta. In both I was able to find the icon for the crop tool and utilize it. I 
find that the implementation of the crop tool in the 3.0 Beta version to be a 
significant improvement upon its predecessor (thus certainly improved from 1.1 
when this was reported). I feel that the user can now find the “Crop Picture…” 
option in all of the logical places (See tested scenarios). After concluding 
my tests, it is my recommendation that this issue be closed.

I have attached a document featuring details and steps for the scenarios that 
I tested for. 

Scenario 1: What icons are in the toolbars at the top?
Scenario 2: What if the toolbar did not appear by default?
Scenario 3: Does the “Position and Size” menu offer cropping?
Scenario 4: Is Crop Picture an option in one of the dropdown menu options?

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