As I save for my homepage a html file, the pictures are in 4.2 embedded - new feature in 4.2 for merge mail with images ( ) . But I don't want to merge, as it is a simple index.html file which I save and the images are linked. How can I deactivate embedding images saving in html in 4.2 ?

It does not appear to have been an optional change according to the commit and notes in fdo#63211. I have made a note of it in fdo#48887, which is now adversely impacted. Previously it was possible to use:

  • File > Export... > select File Type of "XHTML" to embed the graphic.
  • File > Save As... > select File Type of "HTML Document" to link the graphic.

... regardless of whether the source file was an ODT or HTML with embedded or linked graphic. Now, all options result in a base64 embedded graphic. Feel free to comment in fdo#48887 as this would seem undesirable.
