Description canned 2019-07-30 07:48:47 UTC
An image larger than a table cell currently overlaps the table cell. Wouldn't it make more sense if, in such cases, the table cell would crop the larger image?

Could you please add some steps to reproduce?

I can't reproduce in
Version: 6.4.0.0.alpha0+ (x64)
Build ID: 8f98a7c4e5b1f0b249c026577805a378b8a533d5

Result: LO reduces size of picture, so that it fit's in the table cell.

Correct, when inserted, LO reduces the size of the picture so that it fits in the table cell. But when I manually expand the picture, it overlaps the table cell. 

My question is a general note (no bug report but an improvement): Wouldn't it make more sense if, in such cases, the table cell would crop the larger picture? In this way it would be easier to fit a picture in width AND height of the table cell, or even to scale a picture inside a table cell.

I agree, that this doesn't seem to be possible at the moment. I'm not sure, if your suggestion should be the default behaviour, but it could be an option. But I don't know, if this is possible. Let's ask design team for further input.

I don't think crop is the right term here. By enlarging the image you don't expect to crop it. So I tried to arrange and wrap the image into the background with a non-transparent color on table cells. Still the table remains in the background meaning I can select the image per click and its white background is painted over the cell background. Normal text paints over the image and hides it when the background is set.
