Why does pasting a print screen copy to LibreOffice Writer now just give a blank rectangle labelled 'Image'? How to recover the actual image?

The action of recording a print screen onto a LibreOffice Writer page has inexplicably changed and become useless.

Pasting a print screen copy to LibreOffice Writer now just gives a blank rectangle labelled 'Image'.

How do I recover the actual image?

Thank you.

Regards, RomJon

Thank you so much. One of those 'trivial when you know how' items! I am most grateful.
