Why do my images bounce around?

I have clicked on anchor, but none of them hold the image in place. When things are moved anywhere I have to try to move them back. If I backspace to bring a paragraph or image up, it won’t stay there. If I use enter to move them down, then everything below moves also. I do this all the time and really need to do this correctly. I use LO everyday. I make pages for school children that have lots of images and sentences.

Sometimes the spacing between lines goes haywire. When I cut and paste something with an “Arial” type font, it pastes with a “Times” font, or it becomes tiny. I have put the font and size I want in Preferences, but it doesn’t matter. I never use Times. (It’s like a gremlin lives in my computer!)

I have a Mac Mini, Snow Leopard 10.6.8, Firefox 12.0, and Libre Office 3.4.4.
I’ve had these problems since before I upgraded. I hope you can help with my problems. Thanks.


I think 3.4.4 it is an old version, and many bug has been correct, try with the last version.

Hi @justme088,

We recently came out with LO 4.0, so you should try the latest release and see if you’re still experiencing these “bouncing” images.

If the newest release doesn’t seem to fix your problem, please file a bug and provide a list of steps that can reproduce your problem. The QA team will be happy to help you track down this issue!
