Description Matthew Francis 2015-03-23 08:28:32 UTC
Split from bug 42692

Opening the attached SVG in Draw fails to apply a clipping path. It should show the intersection of a circle and a rectangle, but instead shows the full circle.

Before the below commit, the clipping path is shown separately as a filled black rectangle, but this too was incorrect (i.e. the below changed the behaviour but didn't fix the issue with this file)

SVG is inserted into Draw fine for me. Opening shows the full circle. Version:
Comment 4 A (Andy) 2015-04-05 13:48:43 UTC
Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1: it shows a full circle instead of a clipped circle
Comment 5 Christina Rossmanith 2015-04-12 18:22:25 UTC
Comment 3 is wrong. Correct comment is: Circle is clipped as documented in the screenshot in the corresponding attachment.

It's not clipped in 4.5 for me.

Full circle seen in 3.3 (go-oo filter), 3.6 (oracle filter) and master (apache filter).

It is not "Inherit From OOo". Neither OpenOffice 3.4.1 nor any of the Apache OpenOffice versions show this wrong behavior in File > Open. It is a LibreOffice own bug. Apache OpenOffice uses a different implementation for File > Open than LibreOffice. It is not a "Apache filter".

The summary should be changed from "Importing" to "File Open".
Comment 9 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-05-15 22:46:52 UTC
Confirmed behaviour isnt in AOO 4.1.1.
