Description NISZ LibreOffice Team 2019-07-19 09:39:24 UTC
Description:
Embedding a docx file containing a chart into a docx file causes the chart not displayed only a placeholder image.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.	Create a simple document with some text and a default chart. Save this as ODT then as DOCX too.
2.	Create another document and choose Insert – Object – OLE object.
3.	Choose Create from file in the dialog and select the ODT file created in step 1.
4.	Save the file as ODT and reopen. The embedded file shows the text and the chart.
5.	Create another document and choose Insert – Object – OLE object.
6.	Choose Create from file in the dialog and select the DOCX file created in step 1.
7.	Save the file as ODT and reopen. The embedded file shows the text and a placeholder instead of the chart.


Actual Results:
The chart in the embedded  file is replaced with a placeholder when a docx file is embedded. This happens if I open the file in Word too.

Expected Results:
Should show the chart inside the embedded file.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Hi  NISZ LibreOffice Team,

I reproduce with
LO 6.4.0.0.alpha0+ (x86) Build ID: 719f4a93e46a6b397356dbb605d2867639ca3942
CPU threads: 2; OS: Windows 6.1; UI render: default; VCL: win; 
Locale: en-US (fr_FR); UI-Language: en-US Calc: CL
but not if embedded file is linked at insertion time.

Have a nice day,

Jacques

In 4.1 and earlier the chart was not displayed on inserting the OLE document at all.

In 4.2 it started to appear on inserting the document and survived the save to ODT, but after editing the embedded document the chart turned to a placeholder.

It worked like that until 5.0 where the reported behavior appeared first.

We may call this a regression, however the original state was not that reliable either.

I bibisected with win32-5.0 to range https://git.libreoffice.org/core/+log/8ec545531992251d3670c1bd3b1d1e0c9c998db0..9cd0fdc90983a4c8856762da7ae3948bfb8e7969

I did it like this:
1. Created new document
2. Inserted lorem-chart.docx as ole object
3. Double-clicked the object to look at the chart

If the chart looked like a placeholder, I said "bad". I did not save the document.
