Description Regina Henschel 2023-01-27 14:36:02 UTC
Created attachment 184960 [details]
Fontwork shape "text plain" with not default handle position

Open attached file and save it to docx.
Unpack the docx file and examine the document.xml file.
Notice, that the <v:shape> element has no 'adj' attribute. Such would have the actual values for the handle position.

Not default handle position by Word

The attached document shows, how Word writes the actual handle position into the 'adj' attribute of the <v:shape> element.

Comment 5 Regina Henschel 2023-02-03 01:26:42 UTC
The bug is fixed for the special case of preset Fontwork shapes. Prior to extending the fix to other preset shapes, bug 153296 needs to be solved. For other preset shapes the VML export is only a Fallback for MS Office versions older than 2010 and therefore has a low priority.
