Description AxelF 2013-10-30 01:42:16 UTC
Copy/Paste of a 'callout' object from DRAW to WRITER changes the callout tail in WRITER.

Steps to reproduce (refer to attached video)
1) DRAW: insert a 'callout' form
2) DRAW: select the 'callout' form, then select COPY
3) WRITER: select PASTE
4) WRITER: the 'callout' form is inserted into WRITER document, but the orientation/position of the callout tail has changed

COPY/PASTE inside DRAW, inside WRITER, or from WRITER to DRAW works correctly

Confirm with LO (Win7 32bit), set version accordingly since it can reproduced with older version.
Comment 3 Peter Schmitt 2013-11-04 07:58:20 UTC
Behaviour reproducable on Windows7 64-bit in versions and
Comment 4 A (Andy) 2015-04-04 10:54:53 UTC

The bug is still present.

LibreOffice Version
Operating system OS X El Capitan 10.11.4

It's a pity that LibreOffice is NOT consistent inside it's own modules.

Comment 9 Pierre C 2018-11-14 16:42:03 UTC
Confirming this five years old bug (at least). very annoying one

Same problem with AOO 4.1.5

Draw test file added, just copy from draw to Writer

My comment from bug 131698:
The error exists the same in AOO, so likely inherited from OOo.

For me it seems as if the values for the handle position are converted somehow. From the numbers I see in file, it looks as if the values are treated as if they are in 1/100 mm and then converted to twips. But instead, the values of the handle position may not be touched at all, because they are relative to svg:viewBox.
