Basic shapes appear invisible in OOWriter
Last modified: 2008-01-19 09:54:15 EST
Description of problem:
If you click on the basic shapes (such as the rounded rectangle), they are
invisible. They are not exported to PDF or Word. If there is a text box in the
basic shape, this also vanishes.
Basic shapes are available in OODraw
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start an OOWriter file
2. Click on Basic Shapes (select the rounded rectangle - not a normal rectangle)
3. Drag to create drawing
Nothing appears except for the bounding box. Changing the fill makes no difference
Basic shape should appear

File demonstrating the problem - it looks blank, but there is a filled rounded edge rectangle there!
Odd, very odd. I see it, and so does the macport.
D'oh! Forgot to mention x86_64 version...
Bit of additional info.
The file I'm working on shows the invisible problem, but if I copy and paste the
group it's in into OODraw, the filled box re-appears!. If I then copy and paste
special back into OO writer, everything is happy
Good catch, we'll have this in place before final 2.4 release, see upstream bug
This is likely to land in OOH680_m4 i.e. >= 2.0.4-4.1
oky doky then, I'll backport this now then instead of waiting for up to possibly
a week or two that it will take to get integrated upstream
backported and fixed in 2.0.4-3.1
