Hi, All,

In Excel 2003, for shape and form control, there is an attribute named "alt
text". But Aoo shape and form control do not have an attribute similar like it.
So when Aoo import them, this attribute will be omitted. And on exporting it as
an Excel 2003 file, this attribute will not be exported. So on opening the
export file in Excel 2003, incorrect attribute value will be shown. There is a
bug related to it:

To fix this issue, is there someone having a good solution? How about import
alt text as the title(in shape description dialog) in Aoo? And then export the
Aoo title as Excel 2007 alt text?

I think it is a good idea to use the AOO's shape|form control attribute "title"
for the import and export of Microsoft Excel 2003 shape|form control attribute
"alt text".

Best regards, Oliver.

Hi, Jianyuan

    I think this problem may exist on  those documentation objects which
has alternative text or object description properties, such as Chart, OLE,
Fontwork, etc. Currently the import filter does not parse alt text, The
solution that import alt text as the title sounds good to me:)

There are 'Title', 'Description' and 'Name' properties for each shape. "alt
text" sounds more like many lines, so I would suggest to use 'Description' for
it, maybe there is also a good fit for 'Title'. The property 'Name' should be a
short string and is shown in the navigator, maybe also a good candidate to add
something useful.

Thanks for everyone.
I will use "Description" for Alt text because Alt text allow multiple lines
which are supported by "Description" other than "Title". I have tried with
"Title", multiple lines will become as one line with return removed after
