Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org

OpenOffice.org Writer in both Karmic and Lucid appears to lack the interactive crop feature. This feature is present in Draw, and in Windows Writer builds.

WORKAROUND: Secondary click picture -> click Picture... -> tab Crop.

ProblemType: Bug
Architecture: i386
Date: Thu Dec 3 18:08:10 2009
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 10.04
Package: openoffice.org-writer 1:3.1.1-5ubuntu1
ProcEnviron:
 PATH=(custom, user)
 LANG=en_AU.UTF-8
 SHELL=/bin/bash
ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 2.6.32-5.6-generic
SourcePackage: openoffice.org
Uname: Linux 2.6.32-5-generic i686

The new "crop" button added to OpenOffice.org 3 apears only on impress not on
writer, so is imposible to crop a image if you dont use the "old way"... I have
searched all around and there is no crop button.
Also you should change the icon, because is the same of a typical "cut" (of the
copy, paste, cut windows buttons).

Crop apears on Impress picture toolbar

Currently the crop tool has only be designed for draw. Writer's graphics are
designed differently from those in draw, thus it is not so easy to directly
integrate this feature.
This is also related to issue 3545.

MRU->OD: would it be possible somehow to overtake the cropping tool from
Impress/Draw in Writer?
