Gradient modification not possible after text duplication

Bug #342406 reported by Remi B on 2009-03-13
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description


I use the version Inkscape20887-0903121753.7z on vista and on XP.

Sometime when I create a text with a gradiant I cannot modify the gradiant orientation after duplication.
The file attached contains a text with this problem.

I can confirm the behavior with your file, but I never experienced that bug creating gradients.
You should try to reproduce the bug in a newer build and see if it is still there.

Does this only seem to happen on duplicated FlowText or on regular text objects as well?

I have try with version Inkscape21345-0905140303.7z, the bug is always here.

Unzip Inkscape21345-0905140303.7z and launch inkscape on windows (Vista or XP) :
- Clic on icone "Create and edit text objects"
- Draw rectangle with text
- Enter "Hello"
- Select in menu "Object/Fill and stroke"
- Clic on "linear gradient" button
- Clic on gradiant handle and change gradiant direction
- Clic on "Select and transform objects" icon
- Clic on text and don't release mouse button
- Press space bar to duplicate text
- Move text duplicated and release mouse button
- Double clic on text
- Try to move direction of gradiant... it will be impossible.

Best regards.

The problem occurs only on flowed text. It is possible to move gradient handles but those changes doesn't affect duplicated FlowText object and then It is also impossible to change gradient on original FlowText object. The most strange issue is the problem seems to occur randomly. Sometimes it works as it should, and sometimes doesn't.

summary: - Gradiant modification not possible after text duplication
+ Gradient modification not possible after text duplication
tags: added: gradient
