Description Andras Timar 2017-01-04 15:51:07 UTC
When I paste multiple images to a Writer document, images are on the top of each other.

Steps to Reproduce:
Select multiple files in file manager, copy them to clipboard, then paste them to a Writer document.

Actual Results:  
Images are on the top of each other. It looks if only the last one was inserted. Users would not find out that there are the others behind the visible one. 

Expected Results:
Expected behaviour is what Word does.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
In this case the clipboard contains "list of files", and Writer takes this list. Word anchores inserted pictures "as-char", Writer could do the same. After each insertion and anchoring as-char instead of as-para, the cursor should be moved after the at-char anchor.

Drag & drop from file manager also does the same thing.
