Description sasha.libreoffice 2011-02-23 07:28:29 UTC
Created attachment 43704 [details]
document with problem object (inserted slide of presentation)

It is text with inserted page of presentation in it. When I double click on it, it looks ok. But when I click on other text, it becomes wrong.
Document was created in MSoffice 2003 and it is one page of initial document.
It behaves the same on windows 32 and on Linux 64. On Libre and Open office.
Comment 1 sasha.libreoffice 2011-03-10 05:44:11 UTC
It is because in Libre Writer function Crop Object is not implemented. All word documents with cropped objects will look wrong.

To reproduce this problem:
Start MSword and PowerPoint.
In power point select some background to slide.
Drag and Drop from PowerPiont (slides on left) to Word.
In Word select dropped object and crop it.
save document in Word

In Writer this document appears with not cropped object. Reproduced on LibreOffice

Seems to be [reproducible[ with "LibreOffice 3.3.2  – WIN7  Home Premium  (64bit) German UI [OOO330m19 (Build:202 / tag]", pls. see my screenshots.

Problem disappears when I copy/paste Presentation object from sample document to a new DRAW document.

No idea what's "ok" and "wrong" for you. Can you confirm view in my screenshots?

I believe it's a bug because it's shown correctly in DRAW?

demo document with crop object problem with screenshot inside

I have created document with explanation and screenshot inside. It demonstrated tihis problem more simply.

And I think that title for this bug:
   Functionality request: crop of OLE-objects in Writer
is more informative, but can not change title of bug. Please, change.

reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit), compared with MSO 2007
