Description Marco Cecchetti 2017-05-22 10:51:15 UTC
Start Draw, draw a rectangle, export it to a SVG document.

Open the SVG document with a browser or Inkscape: instead of a rectangle, you will see a self-crossing polygon.

A patch is available on gerrit: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/37899/
Comment 2 Regina Henschel 2017-05-22 11:48:02 UTC
I cannot confirm it with Version:
Build ID: 965494c544dd8f35ae83b7cf38549009da06c367
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.1; UI render: default; 
TinderBox: Win-x86@62-TDF, Branch:MASTER, Time: 2017-05-10_23:06:27
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group

Which version do you use? How do you draw a "rectangle".
Comment 3 Marco Cecchetti 2017-05-22 12:20:07 UTC
Oh well, interesting tag has been created on April, the offending commit on February, however by git this commit is not contained in

So let me change it back to master branch.

Thanks for catching this incorrect setting
