I've had a series of problems with images in writer. The latest version is that they all disappear. I save and close the document normally. Upon reopening it, they're all gone.

Your question does not specify whether images are actually deleted or just invisible. In my case, I get occasionally invisible images. For me, this has only happened with images inside tables which in turn are inside frames, and it has happened ever since I can remember (now I am using LibreOffice version 5.1). Since those images are always set to anchor "as character", all I need to do to force an update is select them with shift and arrow keys (selecting their whole cells) and change the settings of spacing of their paragraphs (context-menu -> paragraph) to anything. After that I revert the paragraph settings. I have just tested this now because Google did not give me any answer, only your question.

P.S.: shapes like arrows and rectangles disappear when I copy-paste them with ctrl+mouse drag inside tables which are inside frames, and that is not occasional, it is always. Those are also probably just invisible, but I can't get to them. So for that I just do ctrl+Z to ensure their deletion and remember to use ctrl+c, ctrl+v (which fails only sometimes, not always)

Thanks for your help. This just happened again: they are completely deleted. They are not invisible. This is days of work. The images are all of the same type. They are all anchored as characters--some of them in tables, some in the text
