The attachment shows the result of inserting a PNG image to LibreOffice Draw by using Copy/Paste from Mac OS X Finder.

Hi! I am a proud user of LO, but there is one annoying bug that affects many versions of this office suite and that could be fixed easily in my opinion: I do not remember, when it actually worked properly (I am using LO since version 3.3.). I was always expecting it to be solved in the next version. Now, I have decided to report it myself.

Problem description: 
If you want to insert an image from Finder to your Draw project by using Copy/Paste, the software inserts only an icon named "PNG,JPG,TIFF" based on the image's extension, but not the image itself. If you do the same Copy/Paste trick from Finder to other components of LibreOffice, like Writer, it works normally. If you do it in Draw or Impress, it inserts only an icon.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Find an image on your Mac by using Finder
2. Select the image
3. Press Cmd+C
4. Jump to LibreOffice Draw
5. Press Cmd+V

Current behavior:
If reproduced correctly, you will not see your image, but only an icon, named PNG,JPG,TIFF... based on the original image's extension.

If you try to insert the same image by pressing Cmd+V in Writer, Impress and Draw, you will see that only Draw and Impress are affected, while Writer inserts the image properly.

Expected behavior:
I expected that Copy/Paste of an image to LibreOffice Draw would insert the image itself, like it does in Writer, where this function works properly. I just love to use Cmd+C / Cmd+V to insert my images and photographs directly into my documents, presentations and drawings. It's fast and user-friendly.

Thanks you, guys!

Thanks for reporting! Reporting a bug is a first step to see a bug fixed :).

I can confirm this behavior using Mac OSX 10.8.2 and LibreOffice 4.0.0.3 rc3. Therefore I mark this as NEW.

I can't reproduce this behavior in Writer, so I think it's draw-only.

Kind regards,
Joren

Hi!

Thanks for your confirmation. Yes, the bug affects Draw and Impress. Writer is unaffected and works fine.
Comment 3 Emir Sarı 2013-02-10 20:12:10 UTC
One workaround is first copying the image into Writer, then Draw. But still, this rather seems like an important bug.

Still present. Using cmd+c and cmd+v only inserts the icon in Draw. Dragging the file works fine

This is still present

I'm going to lower the importance of the bug given that you can always drag and drop, although it is a slightly annoying bug
