Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190860
export to PDF does not behave correctly with embedded postscript images
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
When I export a document to PDF that contains postscript images, the only thing
that appears in the PDF is the preview of the image, not the vector, postscript
version of the image. One would expect that a PDF convertor would handle this
Traditionally, I have dealt with this problem by creating an Adobe PDF converter
using spadmin, but spadmin does not appear to work correctly with the fedora
version of openoffice (bug #190859).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.embed a postscript figure in a document (say a presentation)
2.export to PDF
3.open with evince and look at quality of image (if present at al).
Preview of image will be in PDF
High-quality, postscript of figure should appear in final document.
Yeah, it's assumed that the preview is of suitable quality. Currently there
isn't the ability to convert the eps directly into vector information suitable
for inclusion in pdf. I did write an (integrated) patch for eps with no previews
to try at least to generate one if one is missing

problem still exists as http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=14163
