Following an upgrade from OpenSuse 10.2.10 and openoffice 2.1 to OpenSuse 11.0 and openoffice 2.4 I am confronted with the following issue:

Embedded objects in oo Impress (equations, tables) do not display when in edit (normal) mode, they do however display when one makes a presentation (that is in Slide Show mode). The objects are present (clicking on them allows me to edit them, but they remain invisible in edit (normal) mode).

I have posted this here (and not on an openoffice forum) because when I open the same file on a windows box with openoffice 2.4 installed everything renders perfectly.

So this suggests that it has something to do with opensuse 11.0 openoffice or with opensuse 11.0 java.

thanks for you help!
