I have a template file designing-with-libreoffice.ott from the book Designing with LibreOffice (download link: http://designingwithlibreoffice.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/DWL-odt-files.zip). When I open this file with LibreOffice-fresh 6.0.2, I only see a blank document, and I can view this template in LibreOffice-still 5.4.5.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open designing-with-libreoffice.ott with LibreOffice Writer
I only see a blank document.
I should see a document with contents.

tdf#112443 disable off-page content positioning
Disable the positioning for objects that are completely off-page.
During import, LO writer forces content always back to the page
and causes unwanted content on the page in constrast to MSO.
To achive this the top/left position of the content is compared to the bottom/right border of the clipping region.
A new compatibility flag OFF_PAGE_POSITIONING is introduced for
legacy rendering of legacy documents.
A unit test demonstrates the issue.
It resolves tdf#112443.

Hi! Thanks for reporting the bug. I'll take a look into the issue.
The issue looks a little weird. Let's consider front-cover.odt and back-cover.odt from the zip file.
front-cover.odt: nothing visible in LO 6
back-cover.odt: everything visible in LO 6
Yes, my patch disables rendering of off-page images and, unfortunately, the image on the front cover is off-page. So it was more or less an unwanted behavior of LO 5 to show the image. Problem seems to be caused by the "from-left" and "from-top" alignment of the image. The image on the back-cover is positioned on the page, so everything is fine.
You can (if available) look at the situation in Microsoft Office. There, back-cover is shown but front-cover not. So just like LO 6 does now.
You can still access the images by hitting F5 (opening the navigator) and selecting it under "images" -> edit. There you place it e.g. 0cm from the left/top of the page. So maybe updating the files?
Maybe I got something wrong, so feedback would be nice :)

I managed to "fix" the issue with a weird way, please check it out:
Also can you make it clear how to "There you place it e.g. 0cm from the left/top of the page."?

In fact the 0.00 doesn't even to be touched, simple open the properties window and click "Confirm" to close it will make the image re-appear.
Indeed, there was a little bug causing the problem. Fix is in review, stay updated :)
