Description shubhamgoyal 2019-09-10 02:02:31 UTC
A standard QR code is always a perfect square.
In Libreoffice the QR Code is generated as a shape. Thus, the QR code is associated with the properties that can deform it. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Writer
2.Insert -> QR Code..
3.Generate QR code
4.Scale QR code sideways.
5.The QR Code Reader cannot read QR code

Actual Results:
Other shape properties like sideways scaling are not disabled for QR Code

Expected Results:
The properties should not be allowed with the QR Code.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

No, it is a OLE object in LibreOffice for now.
