patch hacking out legacy stuff.

This patch removes the SfxItemPool Load/Save - to SvStream - which gums up our code with a number of rather odd binary file format residue pieces.

Nominally these are used for EditEng copy/paste - but - strangely, when compiled without them copying shapes from draw to/from another draw with style attributes etc. appears to work just fine. Unclear what's going on.

A bit of surgery / debugging is needed in:


I suspect, and also OutlinerView::Read( SvStream& rInput and similar places where I've done a partial cut.

Nevertheless libreoffice compiles rather nicely with this, and (potentially) it frees us of some evil / old bloat.

Thoughts appreciated; I guess its rather easy to accelerate SfxItemPool without having to wrestle with this mess ...

The thing to check is copying the text from inside one text box to another, with rich text especially
Comment 2 Michael Meeks 2014-06-10 09:56:01 UTC
Ah - right; that fails as expected =) I get a completely empty text when pasted - even inside the same document; good.

Well worth switching to RTF/ODF for that (I guess) if we can remove all that evil guff around the place there.

yes that horrible code still exists, no it's not a regression

let's set this to "enhancement"

oh, there was a bug for this?... Varun removed that stuff in last year's GSoC!
