draw figure

When copying the whole figure attached from Draw to Writer, it appears totally deformed. It occures for all special paste modes.

Works for me.

The selected element from the ODG will correctly paste special as OLE draw8 object as in attached. 

Also, works well if you save as/export from Draw into any of the supported graphics formats.  And then insert the resulting graphic/image.

Import as "Bitmap" or as "GDI Metafile" is broken for me. I use Version:

Workaround: Convert it to Metafile in Draw and then insert it as Metafile in Writer.

Import as "Drawing format" works for me.

Yeah, paste as GDI metafile or bitmap is broken.

Tested with Version: (x64)

Als three formats "drawing format", "GDI" and "BMP" look correct.
