Subject RC2: OLE problem?
Date Mon, 14 Aug 2017 17:52:17 GMT
Using 4.1.4 RC2 (on Xubuntu 16.04.03 64 bit) and Windows 7 (in John_Ha's case) there seems
to be a problem with OLE.

If in Writer one uses /Insert /OLE Object /
OpenOffice 4.1.4 Formula with Create New checked, a math formula will only display in the
Writer document as "Object n".  It is always editable, but never displays as the actual formula.

If the formula is saved as a file, it can be inserted into a writer document using "Create
from file" and will display, until edited, when it continues to display as "Object n".

One can insert multiple OLE objects from files and they each will display correctly as a formula,
until edited.  After editing they display only as "Object n" (n is the sequential number).
 Only the edited OLEs change to "Object", the unedited OLEs display as formulae.
