Description Ulrich Windl 2014-05-12 06:37:57 UTC
You can add a "floating frame" (with e.g. a writer document) in Impress, but once added, that frame cannot be selected, moved, or resized. At least not in a way the typical user could find out.

Can you attach a sample presentation that shows that? Because I can surely do it.

your attachment lacks the linked .odt file so it's almost unusable.
however I was able to reproducible with attachment 96804 [details] under Win7x64 using any LibO release and OOo 3.3.0 and AOO 4.1.0

problem persists in LibO
