Why do my pasted images looked cropped in Writer?

I'm writing an academic paper in Writer, and wherever I paste an image into it, the image will look cropped, like this (notice the top section):

However, if I paste the same image in any other writer document, it will look just fine:

I have to mention that I initially imported my paper from Microsoft Word, but that was a long time ago, and I've been working on it quite a lot since then. If I cross-check the image properties from the two documents, they look exactly the same...

What might be the issue?

Best regards, SsjCosty

I fixed it by just copying everything from this document into a new document. This way, I lost the original styles, but I got rid of the image issue as well. I then changed my styles manually to make my document look like before.

As someone commented on another forum: „It's possible the original conversion from Word might have left some kind of document corruption that over time has developed into this image-mangling behavior.”
