Description rjahn1 2005-08-12 22:18:29 UTC
OS: MS Windows XP
OO: 1.9.122

The content of OO Drawing imported into the following applications is truncated.
* OO Writer
* OO Impress
* MS Office XP Word

The test with MS Word is to check whether the problem is specific to OO Writer
and Impress or the problem is related to MS OLE implementation in OO.

Example files are attached.

If I select all and copy&paste it to a new writer or impress document, the
drawing is not cropped. How have you "imported" the drawing?
I haven't got Word XP, so I cannot test it there.
Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld 2005-08-14 08:00:10 UTC
I tried to copy from 1.1.4 (German) WIN XP: [645m52 (Build 8824)] to 2.0
(1.9.m122) German version WIN XP: [680m122(Build8941)] by copy - paste: WFM as

Comment 7 wolframgarten 2005-08-15 08:26:55 UTC
Sorry, could not reproduce this. Please add a detailed description: are you
copying and pasting or how do you import? Can you attach a writer or impress
file with the truncated import and a screenshot? Thanks in advance.

OS: MS Windows XP
OO: 1.9.122

Not sure about what additional file attachments that needs. 
Do you need attachments different from the previous submission?  In what way? 
Please specify.


* Has anyone verified that the OO drawing content in previously submitted OO
files was cropped and not changeable?

* I mentioned OLE object insertion, not copy-paste, in the original issue
Past comments all referred to copy-paste UI path.
Has anyone tested the OLE UI path?
In both 1.1.4 (old, still official at writing time) and 1.9.122 (future, open
ducument) formats?

* Please reopen the issue when the description is verified.
Copy-paste is not a substitute for OLE object insertion.

Details about symptom duplication, all in OO 1.9.122.

* drawing creation

new drawing
(do whatever to create a large content)
save in 1.1.4 format (sxd)
save and close file

* import to OO Writer
new text document
insert – object – OLE object – create from file – (specify the sxd drawing file)
– no link – OK
content is truncated
uncropping operation could not retrieve the content outside the border

* import to OO Presentation Impress
new presentation
(the rest operation is the same as the OO Writer)
Comment 9 Rainer Bielefeld 2005-08-15 15:51:57 UTC
I can confirm that problem.

Steps to reproduce:
0. Save Attachment 'truncate.sxd' on your harddisk
1. Open new OOo writer document
2. Menu: Insert - Object - OLE-Object - Create from File
3. Search for attached 'truncate.sxd' and insert
   expected: complete drawing should be visible
   actual: only a central area of the drawing is visible, rest truncated.
           That can be solved by resizing the frame of the inserted OLE-Object,
           but that's exhausting

This might be at least related to issue 20643, I believe: Duplicate.

I checked with 1.1.4 (German) WIN XP: [645m52 (Build 8824)], 
2.0 (1.9.m122) German version WIN XP: [680m122(Build8941)],
2.0 (1.9.m122) German version WIN XP: [680m122(Build8941)]
all with same (bad) result.

During my tests the problem also occured in CALC

Sorry, OLE object insertion was not mentioned in the first issue submission. You
said "content of OO Drawing imported ..." Thats why I asked for a detailed
This one is duplicate.
