Description Gilvan Vilarim 2014-05-24 00:17:33 UTC
1 - Create a blank text document, or open an existing one.

2 - Go to File > Insert > New Image > From File

3 - Choose an image but do not click Open yet.

4 - Choose a different frame style in the "style" combo box (the default frame style is Graphics).

5 - Now click Open.

Expect behavior: the image is inserted with the chosen frame style

Actual behavior: the image is inserted with the Graphics frame style.

It seems that the combo box is useless... Writer always decides that the frame style is "Graphics".


The actual behavior is the same in LibreOffice 4.2.4.

Best regards,
Gilvan.

Hi

The current behavior is that expected. However I can confirm that your proposal would be an improvement. So I change the status to New.

Maybe you'll also interested in this other bug 58890

No, the problem is still there... If you check LibreOffice dialog boxes (Tools - Options - Libreoffice - General), the problem is solved, but if you use Windows dialogs (the default), the problem persists...

Tested on Window 8.1 with LibreOffice 4.3.0.4.

Best regards,
Gilvan.

A pity.
The non-LibreOffice dialog Ubuntu does handle it fine.
So Windows / Mac only at the moment?

Confirmed that it works on Ubuntu even without LibO dialogs, but on Win it selects the Graphics style.

Could not reproduce on OSX 10.10 / LO 4.4.0.2
At this point it looks like this is Windows only.

Setting:
Platform -> Windows (All)
Whiteboard -> notBibisectable

Comment 20 Regina Henschel 2017-10-23 13:40:40 UTC
I strongly disagree. This issue has nothing to do with toolbars or paragraph styles; but with the style drop-down-list in the Windows Insert Image dialog, see attachment

Thanks for the insight.

Tested 3.3, 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 4.4 and 6.0 alpha 1 and in none of these versions did it work with Windows' OS dialog, so not sure how this is a regression.

In 3.3 and 6.0 alpha 1, if using LO's file dialogs, it works fine.

Document with embedded macro to examine the file picker dialog

You see the same problem, if you use the file picker inside a macro.

Open attached document and run the embedded macro. It shows the same dialog as used when inserting an image in writer.

If you use LibreOffice own dialog you should see a label "Your Styles". Select one of the items in that list. Select a file and open it. A message box shows which information can be got from the dialog. You should see the selected style and the path to the selected file.

Set LibreOffice back to use system file dialogs. If you are on Window you can see, that the label is not altered, but has the predefined value "Styles" and the message box has an empty string for the selected style.

So this is an issue in the use of the Windows file open dialog by LibreOffice.
