For each image in a file, the picture->type->keep ratio checkbox is forgotten when you close the dialog box. Instead, LO should remember this setting for each image in writer, impress, and presentation documents.
The new attribute should be saved in the loext namespace.
To see how other office suites use the "keep ratio" attribute. Open the attachment 107017 [details] in Word or Kingsoft Writer. Note how one image is locked, while the other is unlocked.
Keep ratio is retained for picture but not draw objects.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.1 or preferably 184.108.40.206 or later)
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Pictures and shapes still have the "keep ratio" checkbox that doesn't actually control how dragging affects the aspect ratio of the object. Very confusing if you have ever used any other office suite or drawing software.

We're replacing our use of the 'ux-advise' component with a keyword:
Component -> LibreOffice
Add Keyword: needsUXEval
Confirmed, still a problem with LO 18.104.22.168. The "keep ratio" dialog remembers its setting during an editing session, but forgets it whenever a document is closed/reopened.
The setting of this dialog should be stored somewhere as a preference or in a stylesheet, or something.
Agreed with the request to store settings made in dialogs. But I don't get the point of "and save it as an ODF extension". So I remove this, also the UX keyword, and move it to UI.

You need to remember the "keep ratio" setting for each shape / image in the document, so you can only do this if you store this in the file format so ODF needs to be extended with an extra attribute.
There are two features mixed up. The checkbox in the dialog is not related to the property of the picture, but it is a property of the dialog. It says, that the width and height field of the dialog are depend on each other. Of cause, it would be useful if the dialog keeps the setting.
To extend the properties of an image to a feature "keep ratio on resize" is different from such a checkbox. But such property cannot be a property of the image itself, because images may be linked and because the image formats are not under control of ODF or LibreOffice. Only the <draw:frame> element, which contains the image can have such property. There exist already a similar feature for the "Image Control", where you can set the scale to "No", "Keep ratio" or "Fit to size".
I would not mix these two things and split the request. Making the checkbox setting persistent can be done immediately and perhaps should get an own bug. It is independent from ODF.

Same docx with linked images that have different "Lock Aspect Ratio" values

This issue is covered in Bug 84385, which this bug depends on

WordPerfect, Word, and Excel have no problem tracking the "Lock Aspect Ratio" attribute of linked images. Are you saying it's not possible to extend our linked images to track an additional image properties?

If each image in a document has it's own "Lock Aspect Ratio" attribute, how can you save this value without extending ODF?

No, she just said that there is no image specific attributes in ODF. There is the draw:frame element to which we could add this attribute, but it is not image specific as you could add it to a shape or chart also. IMHO, this makes sense and in MSO you can add the attribute to shapes and charts too, but the scope of the bug becomes different - not only images.

I agree - you were clear from the start that you want it for each image, so the bug to remember the dialog state is irrelevant here, because it wouldn't solve your problem. Also adding the attribute to ODF would solve both at the same time.
is this changed summary OK?

checkbox is available in many dialogs (e.g. frame, ole), not just the picture/image dialog. :D

Yep I noticed, but this issue and the reasoning, was all about pictures..
@Luke: what is your take on this?
