Haven't received an answer yet on my original question. After updating to LO I cannot insert images .jpg to a text document. I have used LO for several years and I haven't had any problem w previous versions nor with OpenOffice the current version of which works fine. Instead, I get a frame & options (bitmap, etc).

Probably the default was changed in the newest version to link rather than embed. It's particularly galling because I have previous lengthy documents which include images which the program now wants to link.

My solution? I'm forced to use OpenOffice until I can get some help with this.

I have WIN-10-64 8GB LibreOffice Generally I copy images to a library (local) and then copy & paste into a document when needed. Always has worked flawlessly until now.

I do not wish to link anything to anything nor do I store html images. Portability is important because I carry thumbdrives & send all overseas to my grandson in the military. The images must be available within the document.

Previous version 4.4.7 is still available if you decide to revert.

You have not got View > Images and Charts selected by any chance have you? This would display just the placement but not the images...
