I switched from Open Office to LibreOffice 6 months ago. I have exactly the same problem as in this link: https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questi...

I followed given instructions and it seemed to work with first image. I was able to resize frame with image caption without resizing image. Then i put another image into my document, tried the same method and kappa. Even if i marked "original size" button image was resizing with caption frame.

One thing i noticed - if i mark "original size" button in image properties, then click ok, save and restart document, open image properties again - the "original size" button is unmarked and "keep scale" button is marked.

This problem didn't occured in Open Office.

Is there another way to fix it? Maybe we should add this issue to bug tracker?

I use Linux Mint 19.1 Cinnamon and LibreOffice 6.2.2

PS: Sorry for poor english. Thanks for help

Have you used a frame? Enclosing both your image and the caption in the same frame might solve your problem.

I insert captions via "insert caption" option when you click right mouse button on image. It doesn't matter, i found temporary solution.

I switched off "relative to paragraph" option in image properties "type" tab. image description

The only thing i need to remember is that if i want to resize image i cant do it by resizing image caption frame but by resizing image.
