I'm quite helpless with this problem: writer/impress seem to "forget" images that I insert into a document. It makes no difference how often I save the file. Most of the time the preview pane on the left in impress shows the image is still in place while the slide itself shows something resembling a broken link icon. Upon saving and re-opening the file the original image is gone for good. Importing the image anew doesn't cure the problem. Any ideas how to fix it? The problem occurs with windows 7 or OS X.

In which format do you save your files? --- Please also look here:

Thank you for your answer! Unfortunately, it doesn't really matter. I've tried different formats (.odt, .doc, .docx) It also doesn't seem to matter if it is an original file that I just created or an imported format. sigh Thanks for the link. When searching this site I was pointed to it. Seems a similar problem, not quite the same. My document is still there, the text and also a "dummy" where the image was - I suspect writer somehow loses the link to the image file.

@hutschnur - In the linked question from @carolinamelbelle, I interprete the statement "all is gone" as the image is gone not the file. --- I am afraid that we have here a bug and look forward to further comments of @mariosv. If you can describe the situation sufficiently well, I propose that you file a bug report here: ---- If you then would publish the bug number here other can add comments.

thanks for the advice. I guess I'll try to file a bug report. Meanwhile I've tried the two other computers in our home, and unfortunately the result was the same.
