2017-03-09 11:02:45 +0200 commented answer How do I get an EPS file in Writer to not be scaled?

Thanks for the suggestion. I hadn't tried "Crop". Unfortunately, it still shrinks the image and surrounds it with a blank border. The left vertical line should be 20 MM from paper edge but is nearly 23 MM. The right vertical line should be 171 MM from the left edge of the paper, but it prints at 169 MM. This is a shrinkage of more than 3%. I tried shortening the lines so that they did not extend right to the edge of the paper. I also tried "Keep scale" and "Keep image size". No luck.

I have a simple EPS file which includes lines going to the very edges of the page. Although the printer might not be able to print to the very edge of the paper, I would like the EPS to be retained in the document unscaled. When I insert the EPS, it always has a blank area around the edge and does not preserve the original dimensions precisely. My EPS looks like this:

%!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0
%%BoundingBox: 0 0 595 842

userdict /MM {2.8346 mul} put
gsave
0 MM 157 MM moveto 210 MM 0 rlineto 0 MM 275 MM moveto 210 MM 0 rlineto
171 MM 150 MM moveto 0 140 MM rlineto 20 MM 150 MM moveto 0 140 MM rlineto
0.2 setlinewidth stroke
gsave
27 MM 150 MM moveto 0 140 MM rlineto 164 MM 150 MM moveto 0 140 MM rlineto
[2 2] 0 setdash stroke grestore
27 MM 157 MM translate
0 0 moveto 0 118 MM lineto 137 MM 0 rlineto 0 -118 MM rlineto closepath clip
grestore

The horizontal lines should go to the very edges of the image on an A4 page. The vertical lines should stop 7mm from the top of the A4 page. Even if I set the page margins to zero, the EPS image will be scaled back to about 98% of the correct size. Setting "Original size" make no difference.

2016-07-16 06:36:49 +0200 answered a question Pasting a row from a writer table into a table of another document

I have upgraded to 5.1.3.2 (still under OpenSuse) and the problem persists. I removed the folder .config/libreoffice before testing, to ensure that I was using the default configuration rather being possibly affected by any changes that I had made previously under "options".

Note that I am able to copy a row in a table and paste without problem into another row of the same table or even a different table in the same document. The problem only arises if the destination table is in a different document.

2016-07-10 04:04:23 +0200 asked a question Pasting a row from a writer table into a table of another document

I am using Version: 5.0.4.2 under OpenSuse. When I copy a row of a table in a .doc or .docx file in Writer and attempt to paste it into a similar table in another Writer document of the same type, the separate cells do not get pasted into corresponding cells of the destination window. Rather, it seems to paste as a separate table within the first cell of the destination table. As an example, if I copy this row from one document: The source row: , when it gets pasted into a separate document it appears as after pasting

I have tried using Crtl-V and also the various Paste-special options, but I cannot get the cells to go into the separate cells of the destination document. This used to work without problem with earlier versions of LibreOffice.
