Description Mark Palmos 2019-06-12 08:18:10 UTC
See the image and document at

The image shows the problem where text boxes and associated arrows are rendered on page 2, completely away from the main image they are meant to be annotating... This happens every time, and works fine with MS Word and Google Docs.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open the document

Actual Results:
Arrows and text boxes are moved to page 2 but should be on page 1 to annotate the main drawing of the man.

Expected Results:
arrows are as seen in Google Docs on RH side of image.

Reproducible: Always
