LibreOffice Writer Image handling is right now too complicated, e.g. it is to easy to resize an image and loose aspect ratio (keep aspect ratio should be default – no average user knows: SHIFT+drag image border).

Are there any plans to improve LibreOffice Writer image handling in the near future?

I can add a million more reasons to improve image handling:

  • Default anchor should be Anchor as Character
  • If adding a Caption (with a frame being added automatically), caption frame cannot be removed later. Yes, resize should always be with locked aspect ratio.
  • The behavior to arrange multiple images side by side or in a grid is pretty bad indeed. gravatar ( 2019-12-25 01:09:04 +0100 )edit

It's not a bug. It's obvious that keeping aspect ration should be the default. LO is packed with the worst possible default settings, created by people who design, but apparently do not USE, a word processor. Another terrible default is that the default setting is to place images ON TOP of the text, covering it up. Good luck resetting that to a sensible, usable default setting that will apply to all of your "documents'. It's impossible to achieve.

A new set of intuitive image tools would be a great feature. I also find that when I make a Impress or Writer document with a lot of images it slows down very badly. I don't find this in most other word processors/presentation software. It would be great if images were optimized for screen in some way to ensure good performance.
