Description tono 2005-02-13 16:12:23 UTC
I once posted a patch to fix MS Word 6.0 CJK version (issue #17498).

Most part of the patch is now included in 680 codeline but it is still 

The problems left are:

1. CJK font switching exceptions are ingored.
2. Section exception before the first text node is ignored.

I will post a patch file to fix them.

MRU->MMAHER: please evaluate, if this is kind of worthy for the code. Thanks!
Comment 3 martin_maher 2005-04-13 16:59:50 UTC
mmaher->flr: Yours I think
Comment 4 flr 2006-03-15 16:05:35 UTC
can you attach a bugdoc, which shows the problems fixed by this patch, so that
the patch can be reviewed?


Sorry for the long inactivity time. Seems that "good things take a while..." ;-(

Hi "tono", could you help us with a bugdoc? It would be great to see a document
attached to this issue to support the review.
Comment 6 tono 2006-08-10 11:43:24 UTC

The example doccuments are attached to the original issue #17498.
Aren't they enough or should be attached again to this issue?

Reassigned to HRINKM as long as he took over the filter stuff from FLR.
Comment 9 openoffice 2006-09-01 11:33:22 UTC
Applied patch, now verifying...

After loading document paper size changed from A4 to Letter. Please review patch.
Comment 11 tono 2006-09-10 13:08:09 UTC
@hbrinkm: The patch never changes paper size if recorded. The patch leaves the 
paper size to default if not recorded. For writer document object, the default 
is letter. Maybe it is better to set the paper size to user prefered local 
default but this situation will only occur on .doc created by wordpad.

@tonno: Your right. The install sets I compared had different language
environments. => fixed

ready for QA
Comment 14 michael.ruess 2006-10-31 15:46:04 UTC
Verified in CWS tl28. At least the test documents from issue 17498 can be opened
without any problems.
Comment 15 michael.ruess 2006-12-08 15:00:52 UTC
Closed. Integrated since OO 2.1 RC2.
