Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OFFICE-4110) 19.179 draw:handle-position has wrong parameter order in case of polar handle-position

    [ https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/OFFICE-4110?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=79982#comment-79982 ] 

Michael Stahl commented on OFFICE-4110:

i have looked at OpenXML/ODF Translator Add-in for Office
latest source archive OdfAddinForOffice-src-4.0.5309.zip

this file is the only one that contains the word "polar" that isn't a schema:


it apparently converts DrawingML shapes to ODF shapes via XSLT.

in every use of draw:handle-position with draw:handle-polar in this file, the order is:
*not-a-plausible-angle* *plausible-angle*

(where plausible-angle means: abs(number) < 360)

the reason why i've looked at this is that "WPS Office" is listed on the wikipedia OpenDocument entry but the wikipedia entry for WPS Office doesn't say anything about ODF support, so some searching found this page which recommends installing the above add-on for ODF support (i have not actually installed and tried WPS Office)


(searching is complicated by .WPS being the file extension of Microsoft Works documents)

> Section  19.179 draw:handle-position (below table 13) states
> "If the draw:handle-polar attribute is set, then a handle is a polar handle and the first parameter of the draw:handle-position attribute specifies the angle (as defined in 18.3.1), the handle radius is specified by the second parameter."
> But applications LibreOffice and MS Office use is the other way round. 
> Google Presentation and SoftMaker do not support non-primitive custom shapes.
> Scribus does not support handle, but renders the saved status same as MS Office and LibreOffice.
> Because there is no application, that has implemented it as specified, I suggest to treat is as editorial error. Or do you know any application? Attached is a document with shape with polar handle.
