Description rossnixon 2007-07-11 22:54:49 UTC
A word document that consists of an image, when opened with OOo shows a white
rectangle over 95% of the image. I assume this is a layer in the original image
which has been resized too large by OOo. How do I reduce the size of this layer
so that I can see and print the page?

I can confirm the issue with 2.2.1
Comment 3 rossnixon 2007-07-12 12:36:00 UTC
I viewed the ascii inside the .doc file and noticed a reference to an EMF
(enhanced metafile) image.

MRU->SJ: could you please have a look if this is possibly the same bug as in
issue 79410. The graphics in the doc file show VERY similar symptoms.

Isn't this related to EMF transparency being lost? So maybe related to:

As it has been over 1 year since I submitted this, I have just checked the
example uploaded document again in Open Office 3.0, and confirm the bug still

I had the same problem today with a new DOCX file that was sent to me.
It was viewable in Office Starter and WordPad in Windows 8.0; but not viewable in LibreOffice 4.1
