test file showing picture position problem

sometimes when copying a picture onto another one selected the new picture will not fit into exactly the same place but is placed a bit off. The pictures are embedded as a link to the picture file. Format Typ is "Als Zeichen", "unten", "Zeichen". 

See the test file. Copy picture 93, go to picture 94, select it and paste. The new picture 94 now changed its place from before the picture description after it with an offset of several lines.

The system is Win7pro 64bit.

Repro with
Version: 5.5.0.0.alpha0+
Build ID: 691d1e90f62ce3f1930d3faf74af385d92f00d59
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.19; UI render: default; 
TinderBox: Win-x86@42, Branch:master, Time: 2017-06-09_02:15:11

But not the steps to reproduce didn't work for me. (Copy picture 93, go to picture 94, select it and paste). I did paste picture 93 on different images. At some point I got changes in position

Unfortunately the problem is still there when using LO 5.4.5.1.
Comment 5 Dr. Matthias Weisser 2018-07-01 08:10:24 UTC
The problem is also there in LO 5.4.7.2. See also the new test file test.odt. Go to picture 1 and copy this and place onto picture 2. You will see what happens. Its not on the same place as picture 2 before was.

test file showing picture position problem

There are 2 pictures inside. Copy the first one and then select the second one and paste it. You will see that the position changed.

Example file

I'm noticing two different issues (depending on the way of replacing)

1. Open the attached file
2. Scroll to the second page
3. Select an image placeholder 
4. Copy it (CTRL+C or right click copy)
5. Right click the place holder on the first page & select paste -> textbox moves to the left
6. Undo (CTRL+Z)
7. Now right click (the already selected place holder; green border) & paste again -> Textbox stays at the right + a empty space is added

So 
1. when selecting the image prior to pasting -> empty space but textbox correctly aligned  
2. when pasting without selecting the image first -> textbox moves to the left

"If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information
from Help - About LibreOffice."

using test.odt (the 3. attachment) replacing the picture on page 9 with a smaller one I am still able seeing the problem.

this test used LO 6.1.3.2 (x64) under Win7 64bit:
Version: 6.1.3.2 (x64)
Build-ID: 86daf60bf00efa86ad547e59e09d6bb77c699acb
CPU-Threads: 4; BS: Windows 6.1; UI-Render: GL; 
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group threaded

unfortunately LO6.1.3.2 seems to be very slow on this machine in comparison to other versions that I used before.
