Description crazyskeggy 2013-02-21 14:45:04 UTC
From IRC, can be reproduced by me.

Repro steps:

1. Open a new calc spreadsheet.
2. Drag an image onto the spreadsheet.
3. Observe what happens

Expected result:

Image is inserted like in Insert > Picture > From File

Actual result:

Image is opened in Draw

Additional info:

This is believed to be a regression from LO 3.5

This is present in as well.

Problem does not occur with TDF/LOv3.5.7.2 under Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64. It does occur with TDF/LOv4.0.2.2 under both Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64 and Win7HP. I have changed the platform from "Windows (All)" to "All" as a result. Drag and drop behaviour is normal for (TDF/LOv4.0.2.2) Writer and Impress.
Comment 4 tommy27 2013-09-17 19:58:59 UTC
reproduced in LibO and under Win7 64bit.
works fine in 3.5.7. I haven't tried 3.6.0 to 3.6.6 releases
Comment 5 cytan299 2013-09-17 20:08:31 UTC
Reproduced in MacOSX 10.8.5 and LibreOffice

I had a look through these changes and the only one I can see that might be related to Draw is:


Is it possible this commit caused the change in behaviour?

Comment 8 Olav Peeters 2014-03-11 00:18:31 UTC
There are indeed several treads describing the same problem for dragging into Writer, Impress and Calc. I started having this problem after upgrading from MacOSX 10.6.8 to 10.9 (apparently a problem from 10.7+). This still persists in LO On Fedora 20 I don't have the problem.
Comment 9 Matthew Francis 2015-01-23 07:58:37 UTC
The behaviour changed as of the below commit.

Comment 10 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-02-04 23:08:59 UTC
Didnt reproduce this on 4.1.6, 4.3.5, 4.5 master on Windows 7 when dragging an image from Windows Explorer, and didnt reproduce this on 4.1.6 or 4.5 master on Linux Mint 13 when dragging it from the desktop, so if this is only mac related, then it should be closed as a duplicate of bug 44621.

Comment 11 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2015-02-24 08:14:51 UTC
Didn't reproduce too with LibreOffice built at home under Ubuntu 14.10 x86-64. 
I agree with Jay, it seems to be a MacOS only issue, so a duplicate of bug 44621.

Best regards. JBF
