Description nomnex 2012-02-29 22:04:09 UTC
I create custom styles for the shapes, connectors, drawing objects and text.

When I rename a style (eg. LOConnectorRed > LOConnectorRED1) all the objects connect to this style lose the style attribute (the objects revert to the default style).

I mainly use Draw for mid-complex flow-charts, I later embed in Writer documents.

This bug in 4.0.3 is partially fixed. Now renaming of style works incorrectly.
Steps to reproduce:
0. Start Draw
1. Add new custom style (press F11 if needed)
2. Right mouse click it, "Modify", tab "Organizer", rename to LOConnectorRED1
(style now renamed)
Expected: correct saving/opening such file or warn about name is too long or disallow renaming of style or make field "name" more narrow or add restriction of length to it
Actually: style looks like renamed, but after saving/reloading changing disappears

3. save document
4. File->Reload

Changing title accordingly

Renaming a custom style seems still impossible.
Tested with LibreOffice

Best regards. JBF
