Description Werner Gothein 2018-11-27 10:15:33 UTC
In my impress presentation I inserted symbols / pictures from the gallery.
If I move the presentation odd file to another directory the pictures are gone instead there is a text which indicates a non existing path to a png file, e.g.:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a person picture from gallery into your presentation
2. Save as foobar.odp and move to a sub directory
3. Open moved file

Actual Results:
Text in stead of pictures / symbols are presented

Expected Results:
pictures / symbols should be seen

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Perhaps it does not happen for every symbol but I experienced it with category People. Perhaps there is a work around by defining a path somewhere, but I couldn't find relevant information by searching for the profile.
