Description Tamás Zolnai 2017-08-12 11:42:49 UTC
The preview on the bitmap page of area tab is not always useful. For example when setting Original bitmap type and change the position, I see the result of changing horizontal position, but can't see the right result when changing the vertical postion, because on the preview there is no empty space below or above the picture.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a shape
2. Open Area tab -> Bitmap page
3. Select an image
4. Set type to Original
5. Change positioning

Actual Results:  
Horizontal positions has a good preview, but vertical positions don't.

Expected Results:
On the preview picture empty space should be added also bellow\above the picture to make it visible when vertical position changes (similar to horizontal spaces)

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

In https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2015/12/22/area-fill-options-made-consistent/ figure 7 the bitmap placement is indicated with icons, additionally to the preview. Since we have a mix of legacy features and new workflow (that is also not fully implemented) it would need some rethinking however. This issue here is likely not yet/not fully implemented.
