Description florianP 2011-02-15 14:15:24 UTC
Created attachment 43400 [details]
clean and corrupted otd files, with its template and a text.odt

I think the meta information in my odp file is deleted when using the odt file as an OLE object from writer.

How to reproduce : (zip file included)

 In writer Insert/Object/OLE Object
   create from file 'avec_modeleOK.odt' with LINK TO FILE
 Modify OLE object :
   double click on OLE
   click elsewhere

Actual results :
  File avec_modeleOK.odp has been corrupted into avec_modelePASOK.odp :
    no meta.xml when unzipping the file
    when opened in impress, File/properties : no more link to the template.

Version used :
  LibreOffice 3.3.1    OOO330m19 (Build:7)
  tag libreoffice-, Debian package 1:3.3.1~rc1-2

  Also reproduced on older version openoffice 3.2.1-11 from debian package

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.6 or 5.2.3  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave 
a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword
