Document exhibiting the bug

I did not create this document, so I'm not sure how to recreate it, but I assume it would be something similar to this:

1- Create a .docx in Microsoft Office
2- Insert a Visio document
3- Save the docx
4- Open the docx in LibreOffice

I can confirm that the VISIO file can't be zoomed out (so that in this example the edges are shown fully), if that is the bug. Reproduced using

The same document shows the same bug in LibreOffice

Comment 5 V Stuart Foote 2017-12-02 18:05:54 UTC
On selection the embedded OLE object opens read only, but showing the whole Visio diagram. But, seems there is no way to toggle the OLE into edit mode to show the zoom window and allow adjustment of the OLE to show fully on document canvas.

Remains an issue through 6.0.0

Dear Olivier Diotte,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Warm Regards,
QA Team
