Description Telesto 2016-12-01 11:14:53 UTC
Maybe this isn't a bug, but a feature, but I got confused. When resizing an image from the right to the left, I thought both sides where shrinking.
Jacques Guilleron enlightened me the image was set to be horizontally centered, so the repositioning was normal. But I didn't set the alignment to be centered horizontally, it was LO default.

The 'golden standard', MS Word always aligns images to the left by default. Maybe it should be left in LO too. Just for the sake of migrating purposes from Word to LO.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Writer
2.Insert the attached image
3.2.Resize the image, clicking on the right side of the image, and drag it to the left

Actual Results:  
Inserted images are centered by default

Expected Results:
Inserted image should be alignment to the left side

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: YES

It's true in all cases except when anchored As Character. I don't see, why this should happen, so accepting as NEW.

Inserted images in LibreOffice are center aligned and anchored To Paragraph, which allows them to dragged anywhere around the page. While in MS Word, they are anchored As Character, which limits it to be dragged only where text on the page is, which is why it appears to be left aligned when you drag it.

Closing this as a duplicate of bug 87720, which is to decide what the default formatting of inserted images should be.
