           Summary: Impress 3.4 prints polygons as rectangles and ovals as
                    polygons
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: LibO 3.4.3 release
          Platform: x86-64 (AMD64)
        OS/Version: Windows (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: medium
         Component: Presentation
        AssignedTo: libreoffice-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: simon.marshall at misys.com


Created an attachment (id=51184)
 --> (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/attachment.cgi?id=51184)
doc with mis-printed slides

I have a presentation created using 3.4.3 that contains graphics of various
shapes, eg, polygons, ovals, etc.  They looked fine when viewing in a browser
and they looked fine in the little preview in the printer dialog box.  However,
for some of the slides in the presentation printed on my Epson 400SX, the
polygons are printed as squares (but with the polygon border visible within)
and the ovals are printed as polygons (again with the oval border visible
within).  

I reinstalled LibreOffice 3.4.3, no joy.  I uninstalled and installed 3.4.2, no
joy.

I uninstalled and installed 3.3.4, and they are now printed correctly.

So, it seems there is some problem with the 3.4 series.  

See the attached document, originally created by my daughter.  The polygons
came from "Basic shapes" and the oval from "Ellipse".  We also used
"Flowcharts", though I can't remember if they print incorrectly too.  

When slide 5 is printed, some of the polygons are printed as rectangles and
ovals as polygons, though the shape borders are correctly printed.  There are
also 2 extra shapes printed that I think (but cannot be sure) were never part
of the slide: a slim rectangle and a large triangle.

When slide 6 is printed, again some of the polygons are printed as rectangles
and ovals as polygons, though the shape borders are correctly printed.  

I originally raised this on the LibreOffice Users mailing list, where NoOp
helpfully managed to reproduce the problem with the attachment.  See
