Description Michael Meeks 2013-02-11 21:25:02 UTC
If you copy/paste an image from a website into LibreOffice - you'll notice that actually a linked image is created. Eg. right-click in firefox -> 'copy' and ctrl-v in writer.

This enables the Edit->Links dialog.

That dialog is -pretty- ugly - it should be converted to a .ui file and the code cleaned up cf. http://blogs.linux.ie/caolan/2013/01/24/converting-libreoffice-dialogs-to-ui-format-100-conversions-milestone/

But more than that - we can now link (or embed) Video files inside ODF files - which is really lovely (checkout the [x] link setting in the file selector). However - these don't show up in this dialog - which is a shame, I imagine we could do something useful with them there.

cui/source/dialogs/linkdlg.cxx and
cui/source/dialogs/svuidlg.hrc:#define MD_UPDATE_BASELINKS 32002
cui/source/dialogs/svuidlg.src:ModalDialog MD_UPDATE_BASELINKS

Are the places to poke at this code.

Thanks !

Oh ! - I forgot; we can now embed palettes, bitmaps, line-styles and all manner of other pieces now - checkout the [embed] check-box when you:

insert a rectangle, right click on it, select 'Area', and then 'Color's and notice the '[x] Embed' check-box there.

We should potentially show all of those as well.

adding LibreOffice developer list as CC to unresolved EasyHacks for better visibility.

see e.g. http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/minutes-of-ESC-call-td4076214.html for details
