Description parity 2008-03-12 23:22:42 UTC
A new issue was introduced with OOo 2.4 This issue seems to be created by fixing
issue 64137.

1. Start OOo Writer
2. Insert a picture in an empty document
3. Add a caption to the picture by right-clicking on it and selecting caption.
4. Resize the frame which was now introduced (the picure will also resize)
5. Now select the picture (only the picture, not the frame) and jump to the
right-click menu.
6. Select "picture" in the right-click menu.
7. Now a new window opens. Just click "ok" and the picture will change it's size.

The problem is that in the picture submenu, the size of the picture is does not
have the actual values. By clicking "ok" they are reset.

The same problem with OOo 2.4 RC4 (german):
openSUSE 10.2, kernel
Comment 2 jolatt 2008-03-13 08:56:24 UTC
Not always reproducible.
I tried it twenty times and had one malfunction. Always with new document and
sometimes after restarting OOo (quickstarter not enabled).

In case of malfunction multiple size changing afterwards (same picture in same
document) were ok.

I found out, that this happens, when the "Type" page of the graphic properties
dialog is active.

MRU->OS: insert a graphic with caption, open graphic property dialog -> on the
"Type" page the size values are wrong now.

Just reproduced this bug with OOo 3.0.

The annoying thing is, that it is not really possible to change a thing in the
picture submenu, when a frame (caption) is used.

In the first two tabs (when "ok" is pressed and the frame has been resized some
time before) each time the picture is resized (out of the frame).

Could this issue be adressed in OOo 3.0.1 so that documents with picture and
captions are possible in OOo?

Seems to be a blocker for 3.0.1 for me.
Comment 5 parity 2008-11-16 12:16:15 UTC
Could this issue be handles in OOo 3.1?
Comment 6 parity 2009-03-04 08:42:04 UTC
Could this issue probably be handled in OOo 3.2?

When writing big documents using OOo it is very annoying that the picture menu
is not accessible (without changing the document).

Comment 8 Mathias_Bauer 2009-06-18 09:09:24 UTC
Yes, this is very annoying. I agree that this should get some priority.
Comment 9 Oliver Specht 2009-09-30 09:32:32 UTC
Target changed to 3.x
Comment 10 parity 2010-02-10 10:16:35 UTC
Is there a chance to get this fixed in OOo 3.3?
Comment 11 parity 2010-06-03 06:59:37 UTC
