Description Tomáš Chvátal 2018-05-16 14:19:28 UTC
Created attachment 142132 [details]

issue: on an empty slide, create two shapes: 1) a line and 2) a connector line. Try to apply the formatting from the connector line to the line. This does not work, clone formatting is not available for the connector line

expected result: clone formatting is available for connector lines.

See attached video describing the behaviour.

Reproduced on as latest.

Hi Tomáš,

With LO
Build ID: 9b0d9b32d5dcda91d2f1a96dc04c645c450872bf
Threads CPU : 2; OS : Windows 6.1; UI Render : par défaut; 
Locale : fr-FR (fr_FR); Calc: CL
I can do it by selecting the line, copying the formatting by the clone icon, then pasting it by simply selecting the connector.
Do you get it through this way?
Comment 2 Tomáš Chvátal 2018-05-17 08:58:41 UTC
I simply can't click on the "clone brush when I tried in the (even tho the video is from old LO it behaves the same). I would expect the brush to be clickable.

Can you precise your OS?
Comment 4 Tomáš Chvátal 2018-05-17 09:55:03 UTC
Linux, openSUSE, but applicable on generic packages too.

I can confirm with 4.1 and Version:
Build ID: 44a468323f3f011c41f892117f418987f9c98477
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 

I followed the video steps and after the click on connector, the settings (color and width) are applied to connector line. But the video is misleading - simple steps
 - insert connector line
 - click on the connector line
 - Clone formatting icon is not selectable (greyed out)
