Description farhiz 2002-11-02 06:18:40 UTC

The word processor in 1.0.1 doesn't convert call out boxes correctly. I used 
the call outs as annotation in a document that also contains a screen capture. 
All were created in MS Word 7.

The start points of the call outs are changed and the text boxes are resized.

Farhiz, thank you for using and supporting OOo.

The arrow/line for the callout object changes position and shape when 
imported into OOo.  This happens with OOo/Winword conversion on and 

The text box size is preserved.  With the users attachment, I printed 
out the doc and overlaid them to verify size.  The text box sizes are 

Partially duplicated on Win2k server SP3, OOo 643c.
Test case created using Word2k.

Duplicated on RH 8.0, RH OOo 1.0.1.
1.0.1 also incorrectly sizes the textbox.

Calc and Impress have the same problem.

Issue 2032 and 5426 respectively.

Yes, Issue 5426 describes exactly the sane as this issue. 
The wrong size of the textboxes in 1.0.1 should be corrected in
upcoming 1.0.2 and existing 643C.
