Description bugcatcher1 2016-08-08 15:37:04 UTC
What: Copied picture and text from this page: http://www.zdnet.com/article/linux-mint-the-right-way-to-react-to-a-security-breach/

How: Copied from bottom paragraph of article:
     "I hope that the Mint developers get the credit that they deserve for their response to this problem. They certainly got  more criticism than they deserved for it." 

to top of page: "Linux Mint: The right way to react to a security breach"

Problem: Text came in ok, but picture was rectangle stretching from edge to edge of document. Could not resize the picture (graphic showing the linux mint screen).

"Fix": Deleted non-resizable picture and did "copy image" from web page. Pasted into document. Voila, resizable picture!

System: Linux Mint 17.3,  Cinnamon 64 bit (2.8.8), Kernel 4.4.0-31
LibreOffice: Version:

I can confirm this.

As for the "could not resize the picture" part, yes you can. Right-click on image, pick "Format image" and under cropping set both width and height to 100%. (you could Shift-drag it from the right side handle as well, but that would not end up at the right ratio).

Repro 6.4+ with other problems: password requested on paste and no image really pasted.
