Description sdc.blanco 2019-11-02 11:14:39 UTC
1.  Insert QR code
2.  Double-click on code.
3.  Write some text.

Actual result:  text is “connected” to (and written through) QR code (similar to being able to write directly on a shape)

Expected result:  Not possible to write on/over the QR code itself.

agree, set to NEW
Comment 2 Xisco Faulí 2019-11-05 11:26:11 UTC
I don't agree. the decision should be up to the user, same way LibreOffice allows to write text on images. In the end, the QR code generated is just an image...

In light of the current resolution, I am reverting the bug summary back to the original query.
