GSoC progress for week #5.

 > Blog post for week #5: 

 > About Writer-Images

Last week I shared a blog post of my research on tdf#34438, and this 
week I posted a comment about my 2-week research on the bug page of 
tdf#34438, and Regina Henschel replied with a comment here 
<https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34438#c48> (thanks 
for the reply):

_/[…] So from my point of view we should get rid of Writer-images. But 
that is a long way. […] So to get rid of Writer-images it would be 
necessary to implement the services, which are provided by Writer-images 
for Draw-images too …/_

So, the last decision is: get rid of writer-images. Convert them into 
drawing objects ,but also implement the writer-images 
services/attributes to drawing-images.

 > Prevent jump to top of the comment view / Writer-comments

Bug: tdf#91519: Jump of document canvas view to the top of the comment 
disrupts editing of long comments. 

Commit: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/118638 
<https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/118638> /(waiting for review)/

In Writer, there are 3 issues about comment section:

     - comment section scrolls to top of its view when clicking inside a 
comment view.

     - clicking inside a comment view, scrolls the view to old cursor 
location automatically (if old cursor out of the visible area).

     - comment section scrolls automatically to the old selected text 
(if it’s out of visible area) when clicking inside the Writer canvas view.

Setting the proper /LockView()/ and /ShowCursor()/ states solved these 

 > Summary of week #5

     - We decided that we should get rid of writer-images and convert 
them into the drawing objects without losing the services of writer-images
     - Sent a patch about tdf#91519: 

 > Next week(#6) TO-DO:

     - Work on tdf#51665: Support diagonal borders in TABLEs 
     - Update the UI for diagonal borders

Thank you all.
