Description jon.tech.uk 2020-09-14 20:28:07 UTC
When re-opening a document containing a QR code, that code is not editable.

Steps to recreate bug:
- create a new DRAW document
- menu >> insert >> object >> qr code...
- url/text >> test >> ok
- qr code appears in document
- right click qr code
- edit qr code... is available
- save document
- close document
- reopen saved document
- right click qr code
- edit qr code... is NOT available

This bus is for DRAW only. The above steps work correctly in WRITER.

Fix / workaround:
- extract content.xml file from .odg file
- remove the png tag, example:
<draw:image xlink:href="Pictures/100002010000001800000018D92FD38B996A0D40.png" xlink:type="simple" xlink:show="embed" xlink:actuate="onLoad" draw:mime-type="image/png"/>
- repack modified content.xml file into .odg file
- the qr code is now editable again
