Description Christoph Anton Mitterer 2012-04-11 05:16:48 UTC
Hi.

This is about effects in presentations.
For several of then (e.g. Fly In and Fly Out) a Direction can be specified.
This reads always:
"From ..." (e.g. From bottom, From left, etc.).

Obviously this is only correct for e.g. Fly In but not for Fly Out, where it should read:
"To ..." (e.g. To bottom, To left, etc.)


Cheers,
Chris

I need more information than this. I don't even see Fly Out in 3.6.1.2, also where do you set a direction? Please provide exact steps to reproduce as well as your operating system and LibO version.

Marking as NEEDINFO, once you provide steps and info please mark as UNCONFIRMED. Many thanks

Seems like wrong writing that cause misinterpretation.

> This reads always:
> "From ..." (e.g. From bottom, From left, etc.).
Select an object/text > Custom Animation pane > Add > Entrance > Fly In > OK > see that we can select From bottom, From left, etc under 'Direction'

-> I agree it should be written: To bottom, To left, etc

Don't know it should be categorized as enhancement or bug?

LO 4.0.4.1 (Win7 32bit)

CONFIRMED on Ubuntu 12.04.3 with
LibreOffice Version: 4.2.0.1

(In reply to comment #2)

Repro steps:
> Select an object/text

First, open a new presentation and create a new rectangle somewhere in the middle of the screen.

> Custom Animation pane > Add > Entrance > Fly In > OK

* Right-click on rectangle -> Custom Animation -> (Custom Animation pane appears on RHS of screen)
* Click "Add" (actually, the text is "+", not "Add" -- that's another bug!)
* Select Entrance -> Fly In
* Click 'OK' button

> > see that we can select From bottom, From left, etc under 'Direction'

Yep

Confirmed.

The language needs to be fixed (we're not adding any new functionality), so it's a bug.

Bug in Diagonal Squares transition.

Confirmed in LO Impress 6.2.0.3.

Text of Direction in animation "Diagonal Squares" is "From Left to ..." but really is "To Left to ..." or simply "Left to ..." ¿native english here?

Konfirmita en LO Impress 6.2.0.3.

Teksto de Direkto en movbildo "Diagonalaj Kvadratoj" estas "From Left to ...", sed vere estas "To Left to ...", aŭ simple "Left to ...". Ĉu iu denaska homo en angla lingvo ĉi tie?
