I changed platform from 'Other' to 'All' because i have seen this happen on Windows7 and on Linux (openSUSE)

And, i did serv version in this bug to 'LibO 3.3.30 Release' because thats the version i was using, and is also in the subject of the thread on the forum

LibreOffice 3.3.0 
OOO330m19 (Build:6)
tag libreoffice-

More info: I've tested OOo 3.3 and it works exactly like LibO.

[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.3.0 RC4 - WIN7  Home Premium (64bit) German UI  [OOO330m19 (build 6 / tag]". I also see the strange behavior with drawint in sample document when
1. <cntrl>+<a> to select all
2. <cntrl>+<x> to cut all
3. <cntrl>+<v> to paste contents
   expected: no changes
   actual: connector route modified

Same with copy / paste drawing contents

I was not able to create an own sample document "from the scratch"

can you contribute a step by step instruction how to create a sample document behaving like your sample?
Comment 5 LucTur 2011-02-11 00:56:00 UTC
@ Rainer Bielefeld: for further info you have to ask Luuk (he's in CC in this bug), because the attached document was originally created by him.
Comment 6 Luuk 2011-02-11 01:19:24 UTC
About creating a sample document...

I was trying to reproduce the steps to create such a document. But the 'original' was a quick an (first) play with LibO-draw, so its hard to reproduce.

But i think i found a direction in where to search.

It has to do with moving rectangles, or aligning them to each other. After this is seems possible that the connectors are no longer 'snapped' to the grid.

When opening the test-dcoument, and moving the top-reactange, you can see the connector is moving (or 'snapping' to grid)

When moving the bottom-reactange, connectors do keep aligned better/correct.

I hope this info was good enough to bring you close to a sollution ;)

Opened the test file in OO 3.2.1 and the bug is there too.

[This is an automated message.]
This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
