Description eagleoneandrea 2005-10-12 17:05:47 UTC
When I try to open a file through a symlink pointing to it, OpenOffice doesn't
recongnize that the file is a link and tries to open the link itself instead of
the pointed file.

I've installed this version: OOo_1.9.130_MacOSX_install_en-US.dmg

TM->openstep: please investigate, thanks !
Comment 2 cbrunet 2006-07-28 20:59:18 UTC
I haven't been able to reproduce this. I tried with both a Finder alias and a
symlink (ln -s), and the file opened normally.

OOo 2.0.3fr on Mac OS X 10.3.9.

Is your problem similar to the one in Issue 68963 "Additional comments from
rainerbielefeld Thu Aug 31 06:31:42 -0700 2006"?
Comment 4 eagleoneandrea 2006-09-13 07:55:28 UTC
Yes the problem is the same but I found it trying to open a file. With a newer
version of OOo seems that problem is solved.
