Writer has a very frustrating bug whereby I insert an image and add a caption. This automatically puts the image and caption in a frame. I then continue to edit the document, perhaps adding or removing text above the image which moves its position (no wrap). When an image moves it frequently becomes truncated with the little red ‘more content arrow’. The frame itself doesn’t straddle my page break and the whole frame appears to be visible but with more than half of it (including the caption) just white.
Sometimes if I resize the frame I can get the content back but mostly it ignores the resize and squashes the image into a smaller space (effectively rescaling it vertically). I have wasted a huge amount of time trying to get my images and captions back and it is usually quicker to reimport my image and retype the caption. This is very frustrating.
Is there any way I can stop LibrOffice Writer doing this? Can I turn this behaviour off - I’d rather the image-frames hung over the bottom of a page in tact and I move them manually than the current behaviour. It would be less work than what I have to do currently. There doesn’t seem to be any workable, consistent solution in the forums I have seen, though I know other people have had this same problem.
I am using LO 6.4 and saving my documents as ODT - is this bug fixed in version 7 maybe?
