Description Grantler 2020-12-21 11:44:06 UTC
A docx file from a colleague includes 2 images. The first image (page 1) is the problem:
- On OpenOffice 4.1.8 it is not displayed.
- On LibreOffice Writer ( and it is displayed but can't be printed (print preview does not display it; print-out does not contain it).

What I found out (LibreOffice is:
- The image is anchored to character.
- The anchoring symbol is located far outside the text area.

- Save the image as a file.
- Delete the problem image in Writer document and import file, then you have to crop it; apply wrapping.

Steps to Reproduce:
see description

Actual Results:
open file and check print preview

Expected Results:
image is missing in print preview

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
image should be displayed in print preview and then the print out should contain this element

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:
open file and check print preview

Expected Results:
image is missing in print preview

This is misleading.

The image still exists in the print preview. But if you start the print dialog, the preview of the print dialog does not display the image as well as the print-out does not do that.

Sorry for my inaccuracy!

[@Telesto - I have seen you doing bibisects before. Why aren't you bibisecting every issue before you respond?]

I can confirm that the gingerbread men disappear from the first page in 7.2+.

I used bibisect-linux-64-7.0 to bisect. This problem can also been reproduced by looking at the thumbnail generated, so my process was to open the document, and then close it - and look at the thumbnail in the start center. That pointed to (and was confirmed by a printout) author Miklos Vajna on 2020-05-13 21:29:25 with commit 2abe9837deee3823c7928a76b5b2f94f1464f1a3
    DOCX import: fix interaction between the crop and the wrap polygon of images


This patch was backported to LO 6.4.
Comment 7 Justin L 2021-01-26 11:06:25 UTC
My amateur guess is that this is related to vcl/unx/generic/gdi/salbmp.cxx:158: 32-bit images not supported, converting to 24-bit.

pCorrected size H[41346]W[25964] to crop[1363][2719][6092][6143]

P.S. The "look at the thumbnail in start menu" trick doesn't work any more in master. That was fixed by author Luboš Luňák on 2020-10-12 15:13:17 with
commit 59cca1a28df4cdc94450d68cc1e247a8fb5ff6f3
render document thumbnail directly to bitmap, without metafile

But I don't think that will help at all with fixing this bug.

This is fixed with https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/112340.
