Description Pii 2020-12-16 20:27:59 UTC
Description:
I have a file in writer, I inserted a text box then inserted a line (in which ever pattern, horizontal, vertical etc...)I dragged the line and place it on top of the text box but it goes behind the text box. I tried the Bring to Front function but it doesn't work. It stays covered by the text box. I tried the same on Drawing and it didn't work. I tried it on Calc and it worked. The line finally stays on top. I don't know why. it is a simple function. Why isn't it the same on Writer or Drawing.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.I inserted a text box then inserted a line (in which ever pattern, horizontal, vertical etc...)
2.I tried the Bring to Front function.
3.I tried the same on Drawing & Calc

Actual Results:
I don't understand this box. Everything is explain in the Description box.

Expected Results:
I don't understand this box. Everything is explain in the Description box.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No



Additional Info:

The "text box" is a Form Text Box. Apparently this occurs with any Shape, not only Lines.

Writer, Impress and Draw show the same issue.

Real steps:

1. Open Writer
2. Form - Text box, draw it
3. Insert - Shape - Line - Line, draw it over the text box
4. Right-click line, Arrange - Bring to front or right-click text box, Send to back
