Screenshot after attempting to close all objects

DRAW - Trying to close multiple objects will only close one of them

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open LibreOffice Draw
2. Draw a straight line
3. Rght click on the straight line and select "Edit Points" to bring up the Edit Points toolbar along the bottom
4. Click on "Insert Points" in the Edit Points toolbar
5. Insert a new point in the line, in my screenshot I turned the straight line into a triangle shape
6. Copy and paste the open object a few times
7. Select all the open objects and click on "Close Bezier" in the Edit Points toolbar

Current Behaviour

Only one of the open objects will be closed. All the others are left open. This is inconsistent with other functions such as selecting multiple objects and changing their colour, they all change at the same time.

Expected Behaviour

All the selected open objects should be closed simultaneously without the need to select each one individually.

Reproducible with LO, Win 8.1
Comment 2 Matthew Francis 2015-04-04 15:57:25 UTC
This occurs all the way back to LO 3.3.0, so it's not a regression.

There's also nothing terribly wrong with the way it works at the moment, apart from the minor inconsistency, so I think this is best classed as an enhancement.
Comment 3 Heiko Tietze 2016-06-12 10:13:06 UTC
I wonder if it's really an inconsistency. While simple properties like the area color is set for multiple shapes, what function is applied to more than one object? It's like the rotation that does not affect single objects but the selected group, and users could expect to close all points into one big object.

So how about doing the opposite and disabling the close bezier function on multi selection. This could be an easyhack (not setting the flags yet).
Comment 4 Heiko Tietze 2019-02-25 11:58:06 UTC
No further input so let's go with fixing the inconsistency by disabling the close bezier function on multiselection.
