Description konqi 2008-08-31 14:45:35 UTC
Add an OLE Object and open it for editing:
- if OLE Oject is an draw element, no "zoom" is available (View > Zoom), also
mouse up/down while pressing Ctrl doesn't work

- if OLE Object is an writer Element, the mentioned "shortcut" works but neither
new "Zoom-Bar" in Statuspanel nor View>Zoom appear
If "zoomed" writer element will be left, Zoom will fall back to 100%

may be other combinations doesn't work the same way.

btw. is there any consistent way to get content to the right scale level in ALL
The only way to do this in my point of view is to create a new OLE Object which
is huge enough to contain all data, then return to your document where Object is
embedded, then use "resize" functions of the Object.
If the embedded data is huge enough, this is not manageable by any users!!

Resizing the viewable part of an embedded element afterwards is not possible atm!!

Inserting an OLE Object in A1 of a calc sheet will also result in hidden rulers!

The issue is in a state that it cannot be handled, because it merges different
problems and a clear description is missing.

Please submit for each problem a separate issue and give a step by step
description. Be very precise, for example, in which way do you insert the

Be aware that you have no zoom, if you are in edit mode of the OLE object, but
you have to leave the edit mode and drag the green object handles to perform a zoom.

Problem regarding "no zoom in draw OLE" is already tracked in issue 76287.

MRU->OS: zooming should not be available at all in Writer OLE objects. Please
disable Ctrl-Mouswheel in Writer OLE Server.
