Description Joao Campos 2013-02-22 13:10:21 UTC
Problem description: 
When pasting flowchart from Draw to Writer, smart connectors disappear after saving/reopening.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a simple flowchart in Draw that includes connectors.
2. Copy that flowchart to a new Writer document.
3. Save and close the Writer document.
4. Reopen the Writer document.

Current behavior:
The connectors aren't visible, although they reappear if you copy/paste into Draw.

Expected behavior:
The connectors should be visible.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release

New (confirmed)
Major (can prevent high quality/professional work, looks like a loss of data, would be an issue if you sent a document that looked fine but upon saving it messes up connectors)
High (default, no need to change this)

@Joao - did you happen to notice if this issue existed in 3.6?
Comment 2 Joao Campos 2013-02-22 16:55:22 UTC
Don't know about 3.6, but I just tried it on a 3.3.0 and this bug doesn't occur.
Comment 3 Joao Campos 2013-02-22 17:03:16 UTC
Tested it on 3.6.1 and this bug also doesn't occur.
Comment 4 Joel Madero 2013-02-22 18:26:28 UTC
