Description Gerry 2018-02-09 07:38:43 UTC
LO Draw and Impress have the excellent feature to convert images and inserted svg files to polygons. This allows to edit the image as vector shapes.

Actual Results:  
See: https://help.libreoffice.org/Impress/To_Polygon

Expected Results:
Enhancement request:
Please add this feature also to Writer and Calc. These two applications currently do not support "convert to polygon".

Competitive analysis:
MS Office 365 (Word, Excel, Powerpoint) supports "Convert an SVG image to an Office shape" (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/edit-svg-images-in-microsoft-office-2016-69f29d39-194a-4072-8c35-dbe5e7ea528c?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US)
