I created a drawing with LibreOffice Draw, which uses the entire page (portrait mode). Saved it and import it into a Writer document:
Insert → Object → OLE Object… → Create from File
- select created odg file
- check “Link to File”
The image appears with some unwanted behaviour:
The odg object is not simply the page from Draw, where i painted my drawing on, but is much wider - about double as wide as the actual drawing (double as wide as the page in Draw). This means the inserted drawing is much smaller than it could be, as it only takes 50% of the page widht in Writer. And because the object width is limited to the page size in Writer, i can’t enlarge the inserted drawing that the actual drawing width fits the page size in Writer. So how can i make LibreOffice to generate an odg object that contains only the page and no surrounding space?
The inserted drawing is clipped at the top or bottom, it does not contain the whole drawing. It seems the clipping correlates to the zoomed area in Draw, when the drawing was saved - when i zoom into the drawing in Draw and save it, only the zoomed area appears in the inserted odg object in Writer. When i zoom to the whole page in Draw and save the file, the inserted object contains the whole drawing (but not always). Is there a way to zoom the inserted object in Writer, that the complete drawing becomes visible?
I don’t know if these are bugs or if there are some features not known to me…
