If you want to see "Drawing objects" in the navigator, you may name these objects. Right-clic > Name.
Don't remember, but i think it is the same in OpenOffice.

Indeed you need to name the draw objects to make them appear here. This would be an enhancement to have them shown here.
Thanks about Name. I do not know about this.

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:
more detail on this bulk operation: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/RFC-Operation-Spamzilla-tp3607474p3607474.html
reproduced in LibO 3.5.0 beta 1
This is a general UI issue, right? Therefore changed 'Component' field accordingly.
In Draw Navigator shows all draw objects, even any simple line, if you enable 'Show Shapes -> All Shapes'. This problem does not exist there.
Bu I can confirm the problem for Writer and Calc, there always exists an item "Draw Objects", where I even can select a 'Drag Mode', but that's useful for nothing if there are no shapes listed.
So I consider this one a bug.
That never worked in LibO or OOo, see "AOOo#17444 - unnamed objects in navigator"
May be we simply need in heading of Navigator the icon 'Show Shapes -> All Shapes' as we have it in Draw / Impress?
Can you please rate the easyhack proposal? I had to learn that many issues related to inherited Draw code are not as simple as they might look.
This problem seems to come from the fact that drawing objects added in Writer are not named by default. Naming them as "Drawing 1", "Drawing 2", etc. by default could probably help.
In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.
Thank you and apologies for the noise

I would appreciate a default naming of drawing objects. All other objects (tables, comments,..) are named by default, only drawing objects are not named. Also particularly if an object is covered by another object this is only way to select the covered object without modifying the covering object. Furthermore I propose that the default name also indicates the kind of an object. E.g. Rectangle1, Rectangle2, Circle1, Square1, ...

How it would look like with all shapes appearing
Have a patch for this here: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/23265/ which enables show unnamed shapes.
However, I am not sure this is the right approach. Maybe we should rather go with default names for shapes as we do with images?

If I insert a Draw object into a Writer document, it is named automatically and therefore it is listed in the Navigator. So for Writer nothing is to do.

Oh this seems to have changed in 5.2 - thanks for testing. So I guess this can be closed then :)
It is only solved in Writer, in Calc they are not named automatically.
And for Calc the discussion remains whether to use the solution of Writer to name them automatically or use the solution of Draw/Impress to have a special mode (with icon in Navigator) to show or hide unnamed objects.
Beginning with version 5.1.0 drawing objects are named automatically with Shape1, Shape2, ... in Writer. A differentiation between kinds of objects (line, rectangle, Circle, ...) is not performed like proposed in comment 10 and comment 12.
In Calc neither in version 5.1.0 nor in version 5.2.0 an automatic naming of drawing objects is performed. Hence this bug is not completely fixed. Set back to NEW.

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 with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

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) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
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

When opening the first attached file (attachment 43923 [details]) I do not see them in the Navigator.
- starting a new Writer document;
- using Drawing toolbar;
- clicking a shape and drawing it in the document

Right, but not in Calc.

Ah.. better make a separate issue for that?

I'd go with the existing bug. All necessary information is here for future commits.
