Description myron rosenthal 2019-03-09 23:53:45 UTC
NOt exceptional in my process. I save the ods and use the drop down for "Export as pdf".  When the new file opens, it's a graphic file unsuitable for editing

Actual Results:
Pdf file (spreadsheet) was not usable; it was a draw file

Expected Results:
I tried to go back to the original ods to re-save it to a pdf but it was gone.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Thank you for reporting the bug. 

I cannot reproduce it.

If you export an *.ods file to *.pdf then LO will create a *.pdf file.
As a result you have two files: *.ods and *.pdf.
Opening the *.pdf with LO will open the *.pdf in LO Draw.
This is the desired behaviour.

If you want to edit your file with Calc, use File/Open... and open *.ods file.

Please add a detailed description how the bug can be reproduced.

I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. 
Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once the requested info is provided.
