Description Paul F. Johnson 2006-01-12 14:43:56 UTC
Description of problem:
If I create an image in OODraw which uses the join arrows (for the likes of a
flowchart) and then either directly copy and paste or copy and special paste
(described as Draw 8 format), the arrows which are straight in OODraw can become
crooked.

If I paste special (draw 8), join lines vanish along the right hand side - this
doesn't happen if I paste normally.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.0.1.1.5-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a diagram in OODraw, select all, make into a group
2. Copy and paste
3.
  
Actual results:
See attachments

Expected results:
The join lines should not corrupt or vanish

I can also supply the document I'm importing these into if it helps. I have also
noticed that if you ungroup inside of OOWriter, the arrows all jump to the top
of the diagram!

It's not actually a direct bug, just awesomely annoying. Using the grid and snap
to grid and aligning the objects to the grid, and making them the same size will
give you drawings whose connectors are truly straight, despite the zoom level.  

Some help at http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=27651

Completing feature http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=38893 would
be a good thing and make this unobvious to the naked eye.
