Description psy96 2005-02-09 16:20:26 UTC
When riht-clicking a slide and selecting slide > page setup and clicking on 
"backround", 5 fill options for the slide background are available. Upon 
selecting "bitmap", another set of options appears. These options do not include 
any functionality to import new bitmaps, although the OOo help says so:
Clicking on "Help" in this context brings up a help text saying 
Fills the selected object with the bitmap pattern that you click in the list. To 
add a bitmap to the list, click the Bitmaps tab, and then click Import."
This import button is missing along with its associated functionality.
In addition, instead of a 'Bitmaps tab' there is a Bitmap radio button in the 
page setup window.

Since I do not know what is wrong here (missing functionality or the help
promising something that should not be) I reassgn this to Chrisitian to decide
what to do.

CJ: This is a feature which. It really makes sense, and we need to see lots of
things changing regarding color and bitmap handling in OO.o 3.
Comment 3 kabban 2005-05-31 12:47:09 UTC
It is now impossible in draw under OO 2.0 to add bitmaps to the bitmap list and
to save a new *.sob file.

If I delete an background, save an reopen a file, the deleted background bitmaps

It is now much more worse than under 1.1.4.
