Description raguirre0 2008-10-18 01:02:08 UTC
Initially I thought this was a clipboard issue, as this also happens when doing
copy/paste from external (to OO) applications that support OLE.

So there are 2 ways to reproduce this (tested in Draw, Writer and Calc):
1) Start a brand new metafile object in another application. Best if the object
has gradients or mixed vectors/bitmaps.
2) Copy your object from external application to clipboard (example, from MS
Visio 2007)
3) Paste into OO application: Result, the object is totally distorted.

Another way to reproduce:
1) From Draw, Writer or Calc.
2) Go to Insert/Object/OLE object... menu
3) Insert non OO OLE object that displays as metafile with gradients and
bitmaps. This works even for linked objects from files.

Try with a PDF file, it displays properly in Adobe Acrobat, but when embedded
into Calc is totally distorted. (I'll try to upload an attachment, this is my
first post).
