I selected and image with an alpha channel in GIMP (my signature).
I pasted the image into an MS Word document that I had open in Writer.
I changed the image to wrap through and the string of periods could be seen through the image.
I saved the file and clicked the box to retain MS Word format.
The file was opened in MS Office on a Windows computer and the image was no longer transparent. I had to change the transparency level in MS Office 2010 by write clicking on the image.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a grey scale image with a transparent background in GIMP. (e.g. a signature)
2.Select and copy the image to the clipboard.
3.Load a MS Word document into Writer.
4. Paste the image over some text. (e.g. a signature line)
5. Change the image to wrap through.
6. Save the image in MS Word format.
7. Open the file in MS Word.
Do not have time to try.
The image should be transparent.
