Description sasha.libreoffice 2012-04-04 06:07:40 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
0. Start Impress
1. Insert->Movie and sound, select any video or sound file, leave "Link" checked
2. See on Edit->Links
Expected: it works and I can break link to media file so file becomes embedded
Actually: it greyed out

reproduced in 3.5.1 on Fedora 64 bit and Windows XP 32 bit

PS: functionality of embedding media added in 3.5 version. Before this was not possible. My thanks to developers for this useful thing.
So, it is just unfinished feature.

Described in step 2 functionality is important, because during creating and editing presentation is not sense to embed media files: it will greatly slow down saving and loading of presentation. But after editing is finished, it is very handy to embed all into one file. Then presentation can be copied and distributed as one file and nothing will be lost.
