Im new to LibreOffice, so here´s my problem. I used LibreOffice extension PDF Import 1.04 to import PDF-s into Draw and edit them. With images, it imported text aswell(OCR text). I need to get rid of the text part, so i could only export pictures later. Any idea how to do it? Its really painful to delete textboxes one by one, any better solution? Heres picture of my situation:

You do not have to select the text boxes one by one. The selection Tool allows to quickly select objects: drag a selection box around objects.

You can also save the PDF in .odg format, then unzip this new file. You will get a file tree. The images are in the "Pictures" subfolder.
