Description Alan W 2020-07-17 17:44:28 UTC
After opening a new odg document in Draw, making the Glue Points toolbar visible, and adding any number of simple shapes (rectangle, smiley face, etc) clicking on the Insert Glue Point button has no effect; the button does not show as highlighted (as the Connector or Glue Point Relative buttons do) nor does the cursor or shape image change. Clicking anywhere on or around shapes does not add glue points. Pre-selecting different shapes does not change this behavior. Indeed, none of the buttons on the Glue Points toolbar react and all buttons to the right of Glue Point Relative are greyed out.

This bug was first identified on V6. running on Gentoo Linux. Attempting the same procedure on a fresh install of v6.4.5.2 on Windows 10 produced the same failure of the Glue Point tools. Enabling/disabling OpenGL had no effect.

There is no workaround or solution that I can find.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open drawing in Draw
2. Add 1+ shapes
3. Select Insert Glue Point from the Glue Points toolbar

Actual Results:
No Glue Point added

Expected Results:
Should have been able to add Glue Points at cursor location.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

OpenGL enabled: Yes

I don't reproduce the problem either. Alan: please re-test with a newer version. Alternatively, you could attach a file where you are unable to add the points.
