2016-02-26 14:47:07 +0200 commented question Photos and Anchor to Page

Sorry, but you must have skipped a line in my question, and this may help others. I said ANCHOR TO PAGE was the only anchor that holds the photos in place. I think I finally solved the problem. The photos did not have paragraphs on that page to anchor to. Each photo must have a paragraph of its own. I just tried, and a blank line works, so I will simply add a blank line for each photo. When photo jumps off the page, it's anchoring to the first paragraph it finds on another page. Makes sense.

It appears that the photos are really anchored to the PAGE NUMBER, not the page.

I have five photos with some text, all on one page. The photos are arranged with some overlap using ARRANGE. The only ANCHOR that keeps them in place is ANCHOR TO PAGE. The problem is: When I insert or delete another page in front of the photo page, the text on the photo page moves up one page (if I deleted a page) or down one page (if I inserted a page), but the photos do not move; they stay on the same page number. They appear on top of the content of whatever moved to that page number.

I have many pages like this. Is there a solution?

Thank you for your assistance. (Windows 10, but I doubt that has anything to do with it)

2015-06-04 21:38:39 +0200 answered a question how to stop the scrolling

It took me two days, but I finally figured it out. What a shame to waste so much time. I switched to Apache Open Office in the process, but this probably applies to Libre Office, too. The pop up toolbars, which are annoying anyhow, cause the scrolling problems, and it is easy to get rid of them. While they are visible, go to view and uncheck them. They appear to be gone permanently. They have to be visible when you uncheck them.

Why is this not in the HELP section somewhere?

2015-06-03 19:36:29 +0200 asked a question how to stop the scrolling

Yesterday, I downloaded the most recent version of LibreOffice English Text Document. I have been using previous versions for years now.

When I left click the up and down arrows at the top and bottom of the right hand scroll bar, one click used to move the document one line. With this version, one click moves it any random number of lines and it will not stop when I left click somewhere on the page or anywhere on the scroll bar. It seems out of control and makes navigation very difficult.

The problem is not my computer or my mouse, unless requirements are different. Both work fine everywhere else, and both worked fine yesterday morning on the previous version of Libre Office before I downloaded this one.

This new version seems very slow, too.

Any way to download the previous version? I was happy with that one.

Many thanks for your help.
