Description Dr. David Alan Gilbert 2015-07-29 14:02:07 UTC
Created attachment 117515 [details]
odp file containing a chart

For some charts (but not all) I can save-as a .odc file, which is then empty/broken (i.e. if I load it back I see nothing).

I lost data this way, because I loaded a document, made some edits and then did save as, ended up with the .odc.

libreoffice- on fedora 22 x86-64

1) Load the attached document
2) click, and right-click edit
3) File->Save-as   type a name, and OK (It's created atest.odc)
4) quit
5) Load atest.odc - it's blank.

Could we do something about this?
Comment 3 Markus Mohrhard 2015-08-15 23:13:34 UTC
The plan is to disable that feature outside of dbgutil builds.

Hmm - it might be classed as fixed; it still lets you do File->save as and enter a filename; but then gives an error dialog with 'Wrong parameter. The operation was started under an invalid parameter.

So at least you no longer end up with a broken file and think you saved it.

Comment 7 Dr. David Alan Gilbert 2017-09-29 09:58:38 UTC
version: in Fedora 26
same behaviour as comment 5 from last year - i.e. it's transformed into a less dangerous bug.

Comment 9 Mike Kaganski 2019-03-19 05:42:53 UTC
This was fixed in 6.2 by removal of the export feature (see release notes [1]). Marking as duplicate of bug 93005 which was mentioned in the commit.
