Description anders.and 2013-05-14 19:06:26 UTC
Problem description: 
When using libreOffice Draw,
the settings of the controls are not saved to file.
Properties such as alignment, font, border type
are reset to default when the drawing is saved.
When opeing files saved with previous version I had(3.3.3 IIRC)
these settings are loaded, but just by saving the file again,
they are lost.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create new drawing
2. Add text filed and set alignment property to "middle"
   (and/or borders to "none")
3. Save and reload
4. Property is now "standard" and borders are set to 3D.

Current behavior:
Control properties are lost during save

Expected behavior:
Preserve control properties.
Operating System: Windows 7
Version: release
Last worked in: 3.3.3 release

I reproduced the bug. Steps to reproduce (a bit clearer):
1. Create new drawing
2. Add a Text Box control (View - Toolbars - Form Controls)
3. Right click on the control, choose Control... from the local menu
4. Change Border to Without frame and/or change Alignment to Middle
5. Save and reload
6. Border is 3D and/or Alignment is Default

The problem is that properties are not even saved into the odg file!
