Used writer for pasting screenshots for note taking. Now when I open it, it says "read error" and all is gone!

I am using Windows 7 Professional, LibreOffice ver. 4.2.6.3. Saved to hard drive on my comp. Used PrintScreen key to take the screenshots. It is weird because there are pages of "read error" and then a pge of a screen shot wil be there and then more pages of "read error" follow. File is there, but "read error" appears where the screen shots were.

Hi @carolinamelbelle, with no information doesn't seem easy that someone can help. Please could you detail: your Operating System, LIbreOffice version, where you save the file: hard disk, pen, etc.

I have done a test (Win7x64Ult-LibreOffice 4.2.7) and I can't reproduce the issue. Please if you paste using Menu/Edit/Paste special, have you more options than Bitmap?

Is there a way to send you the file so you can see what I am talking about? Would that help?

Voted your question so you can upload the file.

@mariosv - I am experiencing the same/similar effect as well. However, I had no time yet to follow up and keep notes on which format of an image I pasted into Writer. My current feeling is that it happens sporadicly. Use now LibO 4.2.7.2 on XP and observed it most likely also in 4.2.6.

New here so tell me where to upload here. Tied to edit original question and upload it there, but it said I needed more than (3 points?) to upload? Not sure what that means.
