Currently all discussions have been concerning WRITER

I decided to close this bug, because there has been no evidence that we have a
bug - not even an unwanted behavior. We are talking about pictures, and of
course there may be NO distortions when resizing. Reporters wish would mean: If
you have a picture of a room with a flee and a cow in it and you resize it to
1/100 in WRITER, room size and cow size should be reduced, but not size of the
flee, because it would become invisible? That's obviously nonsense.

Of course I can imagine that there might be a particular class of designs for
what a constant width of outline during resize might be important (may be
particular sketches), but currently I can not find any "real life application"
for that. Feet sketches are not. And how should that work? Having complex
drawings with Elements drawn as lines should be resized, outlines not? For such
complex needs WRITER is the wrong tool, you have to use a separate drawing
Editor to prepare the picture so that it can be used as illustration in WRITER.
Here for example you can open the SVG in DRAW, there a resize will not modify
lines width, and then you insert the small feet with thick outlines into

WONTFIX, because DRAW offers the required function and WRITER is not a SVG
