Description Regina Henschel 2020-03-05 14:03:37 UTC
The user interface allows to assign a name to 3D-shapes (scene, cube, sphere, extrusion, rotation). Such name is necessary to access shapes via Navigator and to identify shapes in macros. But ODF up to 1.3 (including) does not allow the draw:name attribute.

I have made a proposal to the ODF TC to allow this attribute for 3D-shapes.

This bug report is about the problem, how to handle the attribute in ODF versions, which do not allow it.

it's a problem but i'm not sure if we should fix it
Comment 2 Regina Henschel 2020-03-05 17:13:21 UTC
Make a compromise? Perhaps:

Do not change anything for LO 6 and ODF 1.2 in LO 7. That way users who need compatibility with older LO versions can save in ODF 1.2 format.

Change LO 7 so, that it does not write draw:name in case of strict ODF 1.3. Announce it in release notes. Reasoning: Users which use the strict version of file format likely want a guaranteed valid document with most chance of interoperability. Other users will use the extended version, which is the default version.

I'm not sure about LO 7 with ODF 1.3 extended. Switching to loext:name should not be a so large additional effort and starting a new version number would be the right time for such a change. On the other hand, in ODF 1.4 we will (hopefully) have it in the standard anyway.

The TC has accepted the proposal for ODF 1.4. Remains the problem what to do in ODF 1.3 strict?

It is still a problem with saving to ODF strict in Version: (x64) / LibreOffice Community
