Description plasmasam 2005-10-18 14:20:08 UTC
There is something strange about how OO handles (foreign ?) metafiles. I
attached a formula. I you view it (well it looks ugly) it is correct in both
2.0rc3 and 1.1.5. 

Now try to break it. In both versions, the metrics will get malformed. Further,
in 1.1.5 the color remains unchanged but in 2.0 the color of all characters gets
black. The same in OO Draw.

If you copy this formula into Writer, it is not possible to Break the object
(ok, I admit that it might not be supported in Writer since it is not a draw
program..) So there is actually no way to change the color of the object. In
impress, you cannot change the color unless you want to break the object.

And an additional question - is there a way in OO to tell quickly which kind of
object is it ? It would be nice to have some info in the context menu (right

The color in impress/draw can be changed by simply using the eyedropper.
The colorchange after breaking is reproducible. Reassigned.

What about the metrics problem - is that reproducible as well ?
