Description sdc.blanco 2019-12-04 15:09:55 UTC
Procedure to produce bug.

1.  Insert Shape. 
2.  Right-click on selected shape, Add text box (and some text).
3.  Insert a new shape.
4.  Select and group the two shapes.

Actual result:  The textbox is separated (detached) from the shape, when the two shapes are grouped.

(Probably you will see the text disappear if you follow this procedure, but just move the grouped shape and you will see the textbox, but now it does not move with the shape.  (It did move with the shape, if it was not grouped).

Also, if you ungroup the shape, then you will see that you can again right-click and "Add Text Box" (which is why I say the text box was "detached").

You can add a new textbox and repeat the same procedure.

Expected result: The text box remains with the shape when the shapes are grouped.


Additional information:

1.  The first time the shapes the grouped, the text box (for the first shape) disappears from view.  But if you subsequently right-click and add a new text box , then it remains in view when grouped with another shape (but still gets detached).

2.  These "detached" textboxes become Frames (but they do not appear in Navigator).  (determined by selecting the textbox and using right-click Properties)

The feature of adding textboxes to shapes only first appears with LO 4.4
