Well, not so much as bug, more of a special feature!
Seems like all my test cases I use an EA setting (in the EA / Start / View / Preferences window, the Diagram / Diagram Frames / On clipboard images = un-ticked.
This means, I NEVER get the frame.
But, when I check that EA option, I also get a missing right-hand side of the frame.
If I copy the diagram directly into a Word document, then the border is complete. But If I take the eaDocX version of the diagram image, and paste it somewhere else, then the right border is still missing. This suggests that it got missed-out when eaDocX got the image from EA.
All of which is a long way of saying that, IMHO, this is an EA bug, but I wouldn’t bet the farm on that….
This issue has been fixed in V4.1.19, now available.
The missing right-hand border still seems to be an issue with the image which is presented by EA at the API, but if we get the image as a bitmap, not a metafile, then the border appears.
So, in 4.1.19 there is now an option to specify ‘Use a bitmap format when copying diagrams from EA’, which is set in the APPLICATION settings, under ‘Diagram settings’. Please note there are also Document-level diagram settings – this setting is not there.
In keeping with normal practice, the default remains as today, but changing to ‘use bitmap..’ will change the setting for all documents you create.
