Description allencch 2012-08-16 00:53:42 UTC
Problem description:
After using load styles, any objects created by draw function are not selectable.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create an empty document, namely A.
2. Save it.
3. Create another document, namely B.
4. Using "Styles and Formatting" > "Load Styles...", choose the document A
5. Use the "Draw Functions", create anything.
6. Click anywhere to deselect the object.
7. Try to click the object again, but failed.

Current behavior:
Cannot select the objects any more, thus cannot delete or edit or move.

Expected behavior:
Can select, edit, delete, move the draw objects.

Confirmed with Version (Build ID: 87906242e87d3ddb2ba9827818f2d1416d80cc7).

[Reproducible] with Server Installation of "LibreOffice 3.3.3  German UI/Locale [OOO330m19 (Build:301) tag libreoffice-] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) 

I additionally inserted a step 3.1 and created a smiley. This smiley will stay accessible after step 6, but all draw elements (text boxes, outlines, ...) can't be accessed (selected) after creation. You have to close and reopen the document to get access to the new elements. 

That was ok with OOo 3.1.1, but already broken in OOo 3.4.0. So I expect that problem is inherited from OOo.

Dear allencch,

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.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
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 https://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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
