On an iMac late 2013 with MacOS Mojave 10.14.5 - LO 6.2.4005

I have collected many articles from websites by pasting them into Writer. Often they include jpeg images and postings from Twitter along with the text. Most images can be deleted, but some are important to the article, and previous versions of LO showed them.

This version does not show the images, but rather the bounding box and icon that should contain the image, but does not. Is there a preference change I am missing in LO that allows images to be pasted into Writer (I cannot find it), or am I confronting a bug?
