Description linuxteacher 2007-05-17 11:48:19 UTC
In my example document example you see: line thickness < 0.04 cm is not
displayed correctly and not printed correctly in an embedded OLE-Drawing
When you double-click at the drawing, open it with OOO_Draw, the line thickness
is displayed and printed correctly. The same is when you copy the drawing into
an new OOODraw document: everything is OK!
The problem appears only when the drawing is embedded and you view or print it
out together with the OOOWriter-Document.
Don't declare the issue as fixed until you tried my document!!!

Confirmed this in Oo 2.2 on Windows XP.

The .04 line prints correctly for me.
I see more a problem with the .03 ...
More in general, displaying at different zoom level, shows different lines on my
screen. However, that doesn't influence the result on paper...
I make some prints and attach them in a minute.

I think this issue touches a problem. Not sure yet how to describe. Any ideas?

To cornouws comment: < I see more a problem with the .03 ...

I (linuxteacher) answer: "line thickness < 0.04 cm" means (as a mathematical
expression) " smaller than 0.04cm " ,i.e.  the problem is with 0.03cm, 0.02cm
and 0.01cm

I'm not a programmer and so I can only say it seems to be a problem with
embedded objects in OOOWriter.
Comment 7 linuxteacher 2007-05-18 15:08:00 UTC
Obviously it's a problem in all versions 2.0.x - 2.2 for all platforms and OS'es
Comment 8 michael.ruess 2007-05-22 14:38:29 UTC
MRU->SJ: the metafile displays the 0,04 cm line thicker than a 0,05 cm line
(also on printout). Pls have a look!

following release status meeting -> target 3.x

The Bug is still there in Version I use the following workaround:
Draw the figure in OOODraw. Mark the figure in OOODraw (NOT the whole document, only the figure!) and copy it (Ctrl-C). Go into the OOOWriter document and paste (Ctrl-V) the figure. The line thicknesses are correct now.

This is a workaround, not a solution! Still waiting for a resolve...
