Regards the SwHTMLWriter mbEmbedImages value [1]. I can't figure out a way to toggle it--no GUI, no Expert Configuration and no command line switch. Am I missing something?

Oliver adjusted the write HTML filter to make saving embedded images optional [1] reverting the always embed images done for bug 63211, to just embed when called for a mail merge.

Was something more needed at that point?

I agree, there seems to be no [obvious] way to toggle image embedding when saving document as HTML.

issue remains with 7.1.1 and master/7.2

Save-as export to .HTML provides the images in the same folder as the document, and a relative link to them.

No means to toggle on base64 embedding of the images in the document.
