I have an ‘issue’ with Writer which has been bugging me for a while:
Often when I paste training course screenshots in a Writer document (with no text between the screenshots), after the first 2 or 3 screenshots, when I hit ENTER to TRY to insert a blank line so I can paste the next screenshot, the cursor instead attaches to the prior screenshot and drags the screenshot with it (it it anchors the screenshot to the cursor so no blank line is inserted); this results in not being able to paste the next screenshot below the last one (if I still try to paste, the new screenshot obviously simply gets pasted OVER the prior screenshot which is not the goal).
I tried the Anchor setting (changed it to ‘Anchor to Paragraph’ e.g.) and it worked (allowed me to insert a blank line and insert the next screenshot); but it only worked for that ONE screenshot (not sure why the default Anchor setting results in issues).
The next screenshot had the same exact issue again. I then decided to try a ‘CTRL A’ - i.e. ‘select all’ (i.e. entire document) and then selected ‘Anchor to Paragraph’ with CTRL-A selection still active.
That seems to have worked. (Need to experiment more)
Is there any way / any other setting to prevent screenshots from dragging down when I try to hit ENTER to insert a blank line after a screenshot, without having to change the Anchor setting on each new document?
I have a bunch of training courses to take and I create a separate Writer doc for each course (each doc contains all the screenshots from that particular course).
I tried MS WordPad and it doesn’t have the above screenshot anchoring/dragging issue.
