Question: How to delete imported but unused bitmaps from a Writer document?
I added a “frame” to a Writer document, and then went through various iterations of adding a background for it, using: Frame->Properties…->Area->Add/Import.
Now the document has become very large; I suspected that LO did not properly throw out the imported but unused bitmaps.
I could not find an interface to remove the old and unused bitmaps I “Add/Import”-ed. The bitmaps did not become visible in the list of preinstalled bitmaps (in the aforementioned Frame->Properties… dialogue) which do have a “delete” option.
They are present in the extracted .odt in a folder “Pictures”. But deleting them there and opening the resulting, smaller .odt results in whining about errors in style.xml, in which they are apparently referenced.
