Description skudpond 2005-03-02 03:41:02 UTC
There is now way to zoom when editing an embedded Open Office drawing within an
Open Office writer document. This makes it very difficult to edit a detailed
drawing. Zooming the document before editing the drawing improves the situation
slightly but would not be as effective as allowing the user to open the embedded
drawing natively in Open Office draw with a right click menu or allowing the
user to zoom in and out in the drawing.

Zooming inside OLE objects has been disabled intentionally, AFAIK. Also, I
didn't find ANY application doing this.
