Description andy-scull 2017-02-05 18:17:29 UTC
Found this while I was creating a column with images and they were a bit bigger than cells you paste them in.
I have no problems with resizing cells beforehand, but this is just plain weird

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy any small image into buffer
2. Move cursor to any cell and paste image (ctrl+V). Image is aligned to top-left cell corner (though anchored to page)
3. resize column and row so image would 'leak' a little into right and bottom cells (also I tried to resize cell by macro to exactly fit width/height of the image)
4. move cursor down to bottom cell (by mouse or by pressing down)
5. paste image again

Actual Results:  
6. Second copy of image is placed at exact same place/cell as first one. And if you try to move it it completely breaks and becomes another object

Expected Results:
6. Second copy of image is placed in current cell, overlapping 'leaked' part of the image in cell above (since it was placed later, it's logical that it would be in a layer above first image)

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
