Description lxvi 2009-01-25 00:35:53 UTC
I was working on a "How to print envelopes using Open Office org" for my parents
on their new HP a6442p (has an Intel Dual core E2200) and had inserted a number
of screen shots of the Envelope dialog, then resized the images, then decided to
put them into a table.  This is when the problems began.  The images would not
cut and paste when I selected them with their accompanying text.  So I tried
dragging the anchor into the table cell.  This would work, but did not yeild the
results I wanted, so I tried switching the anchor type to "As Character".  This
resulted in the images being resized to VERY small even though the properties
still said they were the size I had made them.  Eventually I closed the document
because I needed to restart the system to get it to detect the memory card
reader so I could pull some more images from an xD card.  Now when I try to
reopen this document on that system, or my HP laptop (also running Vista, and
OOo 2.3.0), or my linux desktop (FC4, OOo 2.0), OpenOffice will just hang for a
long time (as in, I get tired of waiting after several minutes).

MRU->OD: opening the attached document will result in a loop while generating
the Writer view. Please have a look, referring to lxvi the documents an amount
of graphics located in table cells.
