Description jbourdinf 2019-02-05 21:31:25 UTC
Created attachment 148934 [details]
.odt file with invisible "inserted" pictures


when I insert into Writer a picture from a file, the picture rains invisible and uneditable.

I click Insert>Picture
    it opens the file manager, I am able to select a folder and a file. When I click 'Open' it returns to the Writer file, where I can see just a little blue square (like at the corners of an inserted object) but nothing else. The blue square is unclickable. Nothing has been inserted.

But if I unzip the .odt file, under 'Pictures' I can see files called .svg, and the same size as the pictures intended to be inserted, whatever their type was.

To insert pictures I have to Copy and Paste. "Insert" doesn't work.

In the attached .odt file I tried to "Insert" a .png, a .jpg and a .jpeg. The page is blank, while when unzipped the Picture folder contains 3 wrong .svg files.

Thank you for your attention

Thank you for reporting the bug. Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from ? I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version and ad the image as attachment. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.
