Description Frederic Parrenin 2015-02-04 13:24:47 UTC
Created attachment 113123 [details]
.svg image to reproduce the problem

Steps to reproduce:
- open writer and create a new document
- import the attached .svg file in it
=> the svg image is not imported, even after several minutes
By comparison, the same svg image opens up in about 1 second in eog or inkscape

Looks the same as
Duplicate ???
Comment 2 Frederic Parrenin 2015-02-05 12:13:55 UTC
I should add that this image has been produced by gnumeric.
I checked that this bug is present in 4.4.0.
Comment 3 Rostislav 'R.Yu.' Okulov 2015-02-05 16:04:09 UTC
This is a regression because file opens with LO <= 3.7 in ~50-55 sec.
