LibreOffice Conference 2022

Introduction to feature "limo-stretch" of shapes
2022-09-30, 12:30–13:00 (Europe/Rome), Loyola

If you drag the "Rounded Rectangle" shape in the width, the corners remain circular. This is caused by the "limo-stretch" property. If you do the same with the shape "Rounded Rectangular Callout" the corners become ellipses.
In my presentation I explain how the property "limo-stretch" is defined in the file format and how this feature is implemented in LibreOffice.
The presentation is intended for developers and for designers of shapes.

I worked as a teacher of mathematics and computer science before I retired. I have been using LibreOffice and its predecessors for more than 20 years. My involvement started with user support and writing documentation as well as reviewing bug reports and testing new features. Since about 10 years I also contribute to the code, first in Calc then mainly in Draw. In parallel, I have been a member of the ODF standards committee since 2013.

So LibreOffice is my hobby. My focus of interest is currently on shapes.
