I’m noticing that I cannot select more than one image file at a time via the “Insert/Picture/From File…” menu option. However, I can do it if I select the files in a file browser (e.g. Caja in Ubuntu/Mint Linux) and drag them to my open document in Writer. Writer places the images starting at the cursor position - exactly what I’d expect.
My issue is that when I have 3 or more images selected, Writer will place the first image at the cursor location and the rest will be placed in reverse order. The order used in this case being file name.
So for example, if I have multiple files of “image1.jpg”, “image2.jpg”, “image3.jpg” and drag them from the file browser to my open document, Writer will place “image1.jpg” at the cursor location and then place “image3.jpg” after that and then place “image2.jpg” last. This happens in this fashion for any insert of greater than 2 images.
Is there a way to change this behavior? I have an external script that I run to size the photos and name them correctly so that they are in filename/alphabetical order in the directory on disc which is the desired order for them to placed within Writer.
