The default settings for adjusting the size of an image has been switched. Previously you had to press the shift key to maintain the image shape, and you could widen or lengthen the image by selecting one of the corners or middle hot buttons.

Now the default is to maintain the existing shape. If you wish to widen or make the image taller, press the shift (upper case) button. Slightly confusing to start with but I personally prefer the new settings. Hope this helps Peter

I seem to remember that the change was made with version 4 of LibO. It has been well documented. See the manual Getting Started for more details or WRITER manual if you are using images in Writer. Also the LibO HELP > Pictures:Scaling/Resizing is very useful.
