but not in

Regarding the quality, I think it's the expected quality for a bitmap
Comment 3 Buovjaga 2018-07-11 17:47:14 UTC
Note missing step after 2: deselect shape. Otherwise the bitmap is pasted to the shape and retains its dimensions.

In Linux 41max, there is a huge number of commits, where nothing happens upon pasting. Looks like it is not bibisectable. I did "git checkout bisect/bad" to checkout the first found bad commit and went backwards with git reset --hard HEAD~1000 (various steps) and it seems before the non-pasting there are good results.

Still in LO (abea0d6647c7f1f7e76c73c26cb80e6a67dc5111) / Ubuntu.

The exact change can't be bibisected, but there are two known states (bibisected using repo bibisect-41max): between the following two commits, pasting as bitmap does nothing. Before the first commit, the normal sized image is pasted, after the second commit the smaller image is pasted.

Dear Telesto,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Warm Regards,
QA Team
