Description a246246_246-kde 2018-06-01 13:06:11 UTC
I got some WMF files from and got attached file B_DNA.wmf.
This file and other ones are not shown correctly, that means it looks different on mspaint.exe on Windows. On mspaint, I see many ellipses drawn in 4 colors, gray, yellow, blue and red, however in LibreOffice on Windows 7 (x64), they are all in black.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached file B_DNA.wmf with LibreOffice Draw.
2. Open the same file with mspaint.exe.
3. Compare.

Actual Results:  
Ellipses are drawn in black.

Expected Results:
Ellipses are drawn in color.

Reproducible: Always

Those images are to small to give a correct colorpalet

Gimp reject the image as to small 1x1 px. not loading
Geegie same thing not loading the image
Draw give a black image because there is no color info in these small images
That is what i think, maybe i am wrong, hope so

Please check my analyze for this image on the Inkscape forum above.
I see it has 7-color palette.

BoundingBox is defined at META_PLACEABLE Record (in WMF spec 
I see 0xce 0xfe 0xc2 0xf4 0x31 0x01 0x27 0x00, that means left: -305, top: -2878, right: 305, bottom 39, when interpreted as 16-bit signed integer.
