Description mmeeks 2005-03-15 14:06:40 UTC
So - I thought this would be fixed in swqfixes16/17 from the comments / commit
messages there, but on testing them, apparently not.

This document locks up (in m79) as a child of lcl_CalcLowers.

Comment 5 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2005-03-22 13:48:55 UTC
cause of defect:
(a) the WW8 import filter doesn't import the drawing lines inside the table
cells correctly and these drawing lines are incorrect positioned.
(b) incorrect positioning algorithm for objects inside table cells - method
<lcl_DoesVertPosFits(..)> doesn't work correctly.
Comment 6 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2005-03-22 13:59:38 UTC
Do you know with which Microsoft Word version the given document is created?
This information would help to correct the WW8 import filter.
Comment 7 mmeeks 2005-03-22 14:08:47 UTC
sadly not - [ the usual version stamps don't work ? ] however; the original bug was:

The following document can't be opened by OpenOffice:
It worked with OpenOffice from SuSE 9.2

I guess it's down to that German university :-)
Comment 8 dancingbuddha 2005-03-23 03:15:16 UTC
I am experiencing the same problem, importing a .doc with pictures. it's a
largeish document - 92 pages. I experienced the same behaviour importing an HTML
file from which I made the document using Word. OOo takes almost 2 minutes to
import the document, and then hangs. The document is attached

Doc with pictures & some tables. Slow import, hang on import complete
Comment 10 dancingbuddha 2005-03-23 03:19:44 UTC
Whoops. Forgot to mention that the document was created using Office 2003. 
Comment 11 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2005-05-19 10:56:54 UTC
Your document is imported into SRC680m103 without a hang/loop, but it takes a
some time. Please submit a new issue for the slow import performance, Thx.
Comment 12 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2005-06-08 12:13:26 UTC
Could you please attach document <wontload.doc> unprotected. Otherwise, I could
not investigate the attributes of the line objects in Microsoft Word. Thx.
