Description tmacalp 2015-04-25 18:48:39 UTC
When attempting to use the new interactive crop tool to crop an image in either Draw or Impress, there is no way to abort the action.  Anything you do while trying to abort will simply apply the crop.

Steps to reproduce:
1. New drawing
2. Insert an image
3. Right click image and select Crop Image
4. Adjust corners of crop area to desired crop
5. Hit escape key

Escape should exit the crop tool without applying our selected crop.

The crop is applied.

Escape would be the most obvious way to abort a crop, but I would also expect a click outside of the image to abort as well.  For instance, the crop tool in gimp only applies the crop if you click within the crop region or press enter.  This seems much more intuitive to me.

Confirmed, as mentioned by me in bug 86329 comment 18 answer 1.

Hmm - so consistent with other Draw/Impress tools, pressing escape
_while_ dragging aborts that operation. So you're still in crop mode
then, but the handle adjustment is not applied.

But I suppose you want to also abort multiple crop steps, where in the
end the user decides she does not want any crop at all?

This still affects LO 5.3.3.

Comment 9 Stéphane Guillou (stragu) 2023-04-21 16:47:43 UTC
Reproduced with:

Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 5cd9de202765e243e41416802f3e4486b8a96f16
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-AU (en_AU.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Calc: threaded

I assume version 4.4 was selected because 5.0 wasn't available yet in the dropdown.
Comment 10 Stéphane Guillou (stragu) 2023-04-21 16:51:55 UTC
(sorry, the handles were available in Draw and Impress before 5.0. Undoing my change.)
