Sample DOCX

- Open a DOC(X) file, eg. the attached, very simple documents with only a bit of text.
- Copy an image to the clipboard from an external application, eg. take a screenshot.
- Paste the image into the text somewhere in the middle of the paragraph.

=> The image covers the text instead of the default "Optimal Page Wrap", even though the wrapping setting itself is the same.

Observed using LO & 3.3.0 (at least with DOC, DOCX seems to behave differently, but still wrong) / Windows 7.

This is a layout issue.  If you save and reload, the wrapping is seen.

This can also affect ODT files. Save the .docx as an ODT and it will be affected.

It has to do with compatibility mode CONSIDER_WRAP_ON_OBJECT_POS, specifically SwTextFly::InitAnchoredObjList's call to                 !pAnchoredObj->ConsiderForTextWrap()

Now to figure out how to tell if this came via pasting...
Comment 6 Justin L 2020-02-05 18:29:25 UTC
Wrapping also happens if you move or resize the image. So any kind of manipulation will "fix" the problem. Why isn't ADDING the image considered to be manipulation...

tdf119748_pasteImage.docx: minor looping example

I noticed that my paste-image solution was causing looping in this "flow to the next page" example. However, unpatched "Insert image" did the same thing. In both cases it doesn't loop forever, so likely one of the layout loops catches it and forces a resolution.

I tried to use this as a unit test with the pre-existing libreoffice.png, but ooxmlexport10's paste function didn't work since png has no import filter name. I couldn't find any other examples of testing copy/paste, so I gave up.

Abandoned. It works as a hack, but not as a proper fix.

Comment 12 Jan-Marek Glogowski 2020-03-06 22:28:03 UTC
I guess the test problem is the result of the turbo handling for fast rendering of the visible page, before the idle renderer kicks in. Maybe it's possible to write a UI test for this?

Interestingly my fixes for the Writer Idle layout rendering somehow exposed this bug for the bug document from bug 123257.

The only important call is the pFly->SetConsiderForTextWrap(true), so text wrap is actually enabled for the fly.

Note to self: in case there are any regressions, see https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/90126 as an alternative way of doing it.

...and indeed, bug 131707 indicates various regressions, so jmux wins for now...
