Description doze_worm 2009-03-04 03:03:27 UTC
1. Create a Writer doc.
2. "Insert" -> "Drawing Object" -> "Formula", Type y=ax2+bx+c in it.
3. Save as .doc file.
4. Open the .doc file with MS WORD 2003/2007

The operator "+" misses in WORD. And the formula cannot be edited in MS WORD.

The display problem cannot be reproduced here; Word 2003 shows the attached
document properly.

MRU->MAV: please care about the mentioned activation problem. It is not possible
to activate any OOo  object in MS Word in an exported document.
Comment 3 michael.ruess 2009-04-28 11:58:10 UTC
IMO this problem is severe enough and worth fixing in OOo 3.2.
Comment 4 Mathias_Bauer 2009-05-15 13:52:43 UTC
I could successfully export a Writer document with a simple formula to Word
format (don't forget the Load/Save settings!) and edit in Word 2003.
Comment 5 Mathias_Bauer 2009-05-15 13:55:02 UTC
The missing "+" sign is a font problem and it only happens for the metafile.
Once the formula is edited in Word, the "+" becomes visible. Thomas, any comment
from your side? In case you think that the font problem can be fixed, mru could
reopen the issue for you (or maybe sj).
Comment 6 michael.ruess 2009-06-30 16:07:28 UTC
Reopening issue. Problem is not that the object conversion - It must be possible
to activate our own objects in a doc opened in Word (if OOo is either installed
on this machine).
The changed summary says it - only the activation problem is handled now in this
Comment 7 michael.ruess 2009-06-30 16:09:08 UTC
Reassigned to MAV for caring about OOo's OLE-server problem in exported doc files.

Comment 9 mikhail.voytenko 2009-08-31 12:59:36 UTC
Changing the target to OOo3.x because of not enough resources.

mav->mru: Please set the target back if you believe that the bug is important
enough to be treated as a show-stopper.

Reset assigne to the default "".
