Image corruption between OODraw and OOWriter
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:20 EST
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
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a diagram in OODraw, select all, make into a group
2. Copy and paste
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.

be a good thing and make this unobvious to the naked eye.
