I use Draw to prepare datasheets for our products. Unfortunately there are some critical bugs in the Draw programm. The document has cca 40 pages with a lot of pictures. It happened to me for a second time that I figured out that many of the included pictures disappeared from the document and only an empty frame with the picture logo is displayed (the same as if a linked external picture is missing). All the pictures are embedded therefore they should be always included in the document. Is this a bug? Does anybody have a similar experience? I do not know how to repeat this behaviour.

First of all, update to the latest stable LibO version. If the problem persists, you need to report a bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=LibreOffice with detailed description, problem file and screenshots (if available).

Hi, i face exactly the same problem with the last version of OO for windows or linux. http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/questio...

As for me images are drag&dropped from png images files. I've linked my working file if someone want to experiment on their setup.

Still a bug in

I tried to report this last year, but wasn't able to, because the bug reporting system can't handle large files, and the bugs will be declared resolved: invalid without sample files.

If the upgrade to 3.6.4 doesn't solve the problem you can use paste special (shift+ctrl+v) and test the image format which works of works not.
