[Solved] Rectangular to oval photo. V 4.1.2 Win 10

Postby Weiry » Sun May 15, 2016 4:14 pm

 Edit:  
How can I change a rectangular photo into an oval one? I am using Version 4.1.2 and Windows 10.
A previous post for version 3 refers to "Tools>Combine " and "deselct" which I can't find.

In OO Draw select the two tools (hold Shift key to allow each be selected), right click on the selection and choose Combine from the popup.

Wait a minute. I draw an oval blue shape, add some picture, arrange one above the other, select both and call "Combine" from the context menu.
The result is a blue rectangle with an oval white hole in it if the oval was behind the picture. If the oval was in front of the picture I see the picture with an oval white hole in it. But I do not get the picture in oval shape.

Put the oval shape ONTO the picture. Select the oval AND the picture.
Right click on the selection - Shapes - Intersect.
