Hi,

I have used OODraw for an drawing with some blue bars as page border and the company logo at the page top. OODraw was really useful for this.

Now I would like to have this drawing as page background for OOWriter text documents.

I have tried the dialog for choosing page background imagem. Unfortunately it does not support opening ODG files.

An alternative would be exporting the picture as PNG, JPG, metafile, etc. But exporting with OODraw degrades the picture quality of poligons with curves (is this a bug?).

Now I have copied the hole drawing into the text header and looks nice. But there are some problems: It is not linked, I cant modify the original drawing and affect all documents. And it is cumbersome to adjust margins, borders and header size in order to position the drawing.

What do you think about this issue? In my opinion, OOWriter should be able to open OODrawings as picture.

Thanks,
Daniel

I did a simple drawing using the DRAW toolbar. Then I copy/pasted into Photofitlre, a really excellent graphic manager. That was Saved as a BMP [or whatever]. That can then be used for the background.

Would that be of any help? I'm neither artist nor typesetter, and know little about each.

David.
