I use latest libreoffice on mac OSX 10.10 :

In draw, when I drag an image from gallery to document, it is included by link. If I send the document to someone else, the link is broken. I could solv the problem by breaking links thanks to this post:

Now I'm looking for a way to have gallery images always embedded by default, and never linked. But I didn't find anything.

Is there a switch I can activate to have images embeded instead of linked ?

The developers have noticed, that this is really a problem. Therefore now (at least since Lo 5.2.3) embedding is the default behavior for dragging an image from the Gallery to the document. If you want a linked image, you now need to press Ctrl+Shift while dragging.
