Example WMF

This is new as compared to LibreOffice 3.6: When creating filles rectangles in Draw, exporting them as WMF, and importing them in Writer, the filled areas are not filled. Did not see this in LibreOffice 3. I'll attach an example.
I found the problem with Windows/XP (32-bit)...
Comment 1 Ulrich Windl 2013-10-21 06:43:36 UTC
When double-clicking the WMF file in Windows, the filled areas are displayed, so I guess it's a bug in Writer, and not in Draw.
Comment 2 Andras Timar 2014-01-19 20:21:57 UTC
Bug is not reproducible, when EMF_PLUS_DISABLE environment variable is set, therefore it is a bug in EMF+ handling.

Comment 5 Aron Budea 2016-08-22 04:16:56 UTC
Areas are still not filled in v5.2.0.4 (Windows 7 and Linux).

Adding regression-related keywords, as it's correct in v3.5.0.3, incorrect in v3.6.0.4.

It's looks like SetPageTransform record is not using Pixels as an unit.

The areas are not filled in the oldest commit in Linux 43all repo. I tried advancing to the 3.5.0 release period, going forward with
git log --reverse --pretty=%H latest | grep -A 1 $(git rev-parse HEAD) | tail -n1 | xargs git checkout

..with grep -A having various steps such as 10. The areas were never filled in the 3.5.0 commits.

Comparing the presentation of the example image in LibreOffice 6.1 with Inkscape 0.91

Still present in 6.1 at least.

I have a feeling I may have fixed this recently:


Needs to be tested.

convert wmf in irfanview to emf file


save wmf as emf

in irfanview or other convertors

emf import is ok like in inkscape.

workaround solution for programmers in LO

convert wmf in emf with internal tool and libs and than import emf in LO
Comment 15 paulystefan 2020-03-10 21:12:22 UTC
import emf successful in LO x64 in win 10-64
Comment 16 paulystefan 2020-06-20 19:40:11 UTC
not resolved in 7.0.0beta2x64 in win 10x64

emf is ok but fonts are not clear
