|0006320||Scribus||Import / Export||public||2007-10-01 13:05||2015-10-28 01:40|
|Platform||Dell Inspiron 9400||OS||SuSE||OS Version||10.2|
|Summary||0006320: Charts created with OpenOffice Draw cannot be imported correctly|
|Description||If you try to import the odg file itself import aborts with the message "The file could not be imported"|
Alternatively you can export the odg to svg/wmf but no format can be realy imported adequately.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
chart.odg (29,057 bytes)
Those charts use 3d objects that it's simply not possible to import in scribus currently and indirect objects that are neither supported. Importing those charts also needs implicit knowledge of the way they are to be drawn, so i don't see us importing such file in a near future (except if there are some volunteers for a GSoC!)
But what about the svg/wmf files?
The import results are also not correct!
(you can test it by exporting a svg/wmf from the provided odg)
|The best work around is to export EPS as describe here:http://docs.scribus.net/index.php?lang=en&page=importhints3|
||aliB : I do not have OpenOffice installed, can you export to wmf and svg and upload the files?|
You'll find in the targz some files to play around with.
I also removed the 3D effect from the odg file (but it can still not be imported)
The import result can be controlled with the pdf version.
1. SVG: no chart captions are available.
2. WMF: Font is not correct (different spaces between characters etc. pp)
3. EPS: Is perfect (but since not a vector format, you always have to export in the same size you want to use it in scribus, (otherwise loss of quality)
4. PDF: same as EPS.
chart_without_3D.tar.gz (45,279 bytes)
1) Embedded svg fonts are currently not supported
2) Qt does not have access to the Albany font used in your wmf file causing consequently an incorrect letter spacing
||Looked again to the svg file exported by OO Draw, the fact that chart captions are not available can be explained as the svg set the fill and stroke color to "None" for the text. Seems like a bug in OO Draw svg export.|
Might be of interest:
I made a bugreport to openoffice for that issue and added today jghali's information since nothing happened until now.
For everybody who wants the bug to be fixed. See last comment from ooo developer.
So voting for a bugfix could probably help (I already did).
