It should call .uno:ObjectMenue. That is the same item as "Object" in 
the menu Edit. The items in that sub-menu provide so called "VerbID" as 
parameter to this command. These VerbID are actions, which are possible 
with the application which is connected to the object.

The item 'Object' has never worked. But it is not needed at all, because 
the items from the sub-menu are already directly available as last items 
in the context menu. In AOO the item 'Object' is already removed.

It seems so. But I don't know why. Perhaps the new table objects of 
Draw/Impress are not able to held a DDE connection?

Kind regards
