Description maison.godard 2007-09-25 14:45:54 UTC
If an image is anchared in a TextFrame, it is not exported to MsWord or RTF
format. It get lost

If it is anchored at page, it is exported correctly. Ok.
In any cases export to PDF is ok

* reproducing:

insert text frame
in the frame, insert image
anchor it at frame or at paragraph (that is in the text frame)
export to msWord
close file
re-open the .doc file

the image is lost

(reproductible on many platforms and by macro)
attached file shows the behaviour

For what it's worth, some test results with older versions of OOo : 1.1.5 and 2.2.1. 
I did not yet switch to 2.3.

Creating a word 97 document containing an image inserted (not linked) to a text frame.
If the image is anchored in the frame as character, at character, at paragraph : the 
image is still visible. OK, both in 1.1.5 and 2.2.1.
If the image is anchored at frame, the image disappears. Both in 1.1.5 and 2.2.1.

Creating a word 97 document containing a linked image in a text frame.
OOo 2.2.1 displays the word document with a broken link.
OOo 1.1.5 displays the word document correctly (image remains visible).
A linked image inserted ouside a frame is correctly displayed (although after an extra 
delay with OOo 2.2.1).

For information : I have downloaded the files (attachments)

In the odt the images are "Draw objects" and I confirm the bug (not exported 
to Word) but if i insert the image (Insert / Picture / From file) the images 
are of course "Graphics" and they are exported to Word...

In some circumstances (?), i encounter a similar problem : after an export to 
Word format, the height of the image (inserted in a frame with Insert / 
Picture / From file) is set to 0.04cm

set me on CC: becaus a Problem with .doc export with background image. I'm not
sure it's the same Problem

Maybe i write better a new issue

Comment 9 michael.ruess 2007-10-25 13:59:13 UTC
These are not images - these are drawing objects.
Problem is, that in MS Word it is not possible to anchor drawings inside frames.
See issue 25756 for further information.
