Description Telesto 2017-03-08 16:30:24 UTC
When importing an image the alignment of an image is set to be left (even when the image is moved around with the mouse). The problem with this is that when cropping the image at the left, the image will - unexpectedly - move tot the left. 

I would personally prefer that an image position behaves a bit like Word, setting the horizontal position to 'Other'. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the attached file with Word and LibO
2.Right Click the Image and select Crop (Word as LibO)
3.Crop the image at the left side (dragging the crop icon to the right)

Actual Results:  
Image will move to the left in LibO. Image will retain position in Word

Expected Results:
The image position in LibO should also be fixed (by default). Except when alignment is explicitly set to left or right.

Reproducible: Always
