Description afore 2005-11-02 22:54:40 UTC
I copied a bit mapped image from PADS Power PCB (the only way to get an image 
out of it) into Draw. I added some text and arrow. I then copied it into a 
Writer document and add some text outside of the images. Everything went fine 
until I went to print it on an HP Laserjet 5000PS. The images were 2 to 3 times 
larger and wiped out most of the text. Print preview showed OK. Checked document 
page setting, printer setting, etc. All OK. I exported it as PDF. Openening the 
PDF shows the same as on the printer, So I exported the document into MSWord 
2000 .doc file and printed it. It went OK. I have attached the .odt, .pdf, and .
doc files.

Reassigned to HI.

I noticed later, that even the msword document was not quite correct. If you 
look on pages 3 & 5, and compare them to pages 3 & 5 of the .odt file, you will 
see some of the objects shifted and some rotated 90 degrees.

Comment 6 kpalagin 2006-09-13 17:37:23 UTC
please specify what exactly is wrong in .pdf. 
Also see if you can remove some objects and still reproduce the problem.
Comment 7 Rainer Bielefeld 2006-09-30 09:26:19 UTC
I checked with "2.0.2  German version WIN XP: [680m5(Build9011)]" and can
confirm the problem: priontout looks like 'Rework_instructions_2.pdf', what
differs from the view I see in the original document or even in the print
preview. Main problem seems to be, that border areas of he bitmap which have
been cropped away in DRAW (they are still visible in the Crop dialogue if you
copy paste the first DRAW object back du DRAW), will be printed.

Print of 'Rework_instructions_2.doc' works fine with WORD2000, but also ugly
from OOo 2.0.

It seems that the reasons for the problems are in DRAW, because I found out
something strange: The view of the bitmap in the Crop dialogue is mirror-inverted ?!

If you are still interested, I will give you some instructions how to create a
complete testkit we need for a solution of this problem.
A first quiestion just here: do you also see that problem if you copy such DRAW
elements to CALC?

Reassigned since this problem is reported in writer with a writer document.
Comment 10 h.ilter 2006-10-06 16:21:03 UTC
This issue is submited with a writer document, but it is not a writer issue.
Writer just use the draw engine and the problem does also occur with draw and
Comment 11 Rainer Bielefeld 2006-10-09 12:06:00 UTC
Do you see any chance to handle this issue without reporter's further
contribution? I believe at least a PADS Power PCB clipboard contents will be
required, as long we do not find anyone else using that software.

Unfortunately it seems that the reporter has no further interest.

taking over.

@rainerbielefeld: attached bugdoc should be sufficient (if, as you suspect, the
bug is botched cropping during printout).
Comment 13 wolframgarten 2006-10-09 14:03:11 UTC
Reassigned, thanks.

Comment 15 thb 2008-06-04 13:07:25 UTC
Application/DrawingLayer problem, I believe - I'm swamped, cl, could you please
take over?
Comment 16 clippka 2008-06-06 13:58:40 UTC
if it is also a problem in writer than it must be below drawing layer since it
is not used by writer for graphics.

cl->sj: please investigate
