Description Royce Lithgo 2014-06-20 00:15:40 UTC
Problem description: 
Set the Graphics Style Wrap to None then paste an image. The pasted image will show that Wrap is set to None, but it does not behave properly. The cursor is positioned somewhere within the image, instead of the image being treated as a block. Selecting Wrap -> No Wrap via right-click on the image fixes everything, but this needs to be done every time an image is pasted and lessens the usefulness of styles.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Modify the Graphics Style and set Wrap to None.
2. Copy an Image in to the clipboard
3. Paste the image in to Writer
4. The cursor will be positioned somewhere within the image instead of at the bottom.
5. Right-click the image and select Wrap -> No Wrap (even though it is already checked)

Current behavior:
No Wrap set in Style isn't being properly handled

Expected behaviour:
No Wrap set in Style should be handled identically to manually selecting Wrap -> No Wrap from right-click Picture menu.
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: release

Couldnt reproduce this in Linux or Windows on 4.2.4. Can you let us know which version of OS X your running and can you send some screenshots of how its looks before and after step 5.
Comment 2 Alex Thurgood 2014-06-22 19:44:06 UTC
This rings a bell for me. Could be a problem with clipboard management (known limitations in the LO code with respect to OSX API) or possibly something else.
Comment 3 Alex Thurgood 2014-06-22 19:55:36 UTC
Hmmm, can't reproduce on LO

Open a blank Writer document
Press enter several times to create several blank paragraphs
Open Styles and Formatting
Click on the Frame Styles list
Choose Image - Edit
Change the default style to "no wrap"
Apply the style to a range of paragraphs in the Writer document with the Paintbrush
Separately, open Finder, select an image, press Cmd-C to copy the image to clipboard
Switch to the Writer document, press Cmd-V to insert the image into one of the blank paragraphs
Now right mouse button click on the image to read off the wrap settings

In my case, the settings are set to "no wrap"

So, unless you are doing something different, I can not reproduce.

The font is only supported by LO in the Normal font weight (it only has one weight Regular according to OSX fontbook), but whether this is the reason or whether it is a kerning problem due to incomplete font API support in the Mac version of LO, I don't know.

Ignore that remark, it belongs to another bug report.
Comment 6 Royce Lithgo 2014-06-22 22:05:17 UTC
I retested this issue, but starting with an empty Writer document (rather than editing the document I was working on). I couldn't reproduce the problem doing it that way. It only appears to be an issue with a specific document which is using a Template from an Office 2010 document.

I'm going to compare the styles from a blank document to my office 2010 template document and see whether I can find any differences that could be causing this issue. 

Just to clarify, in my office 2010 template document, when I set wrap, no wrap in the Graphic style and paste an bitmap image, when i click below the image, the cursor lands inside the image, not below the image as it does when i manually set no wrap on the image.

Royce: if you could provide us with a document sample that illustrates the behaviour, that would be helpful.
Comment 8 Alex Thurgood 2014-06-27 08:54:02 UTC
At present, this looks to be an import problem linked to the style formatting in your Office 2010 doicument.
