Description Brad 2019-10-08 02:56:57 UTC
When I use the Image Insert Caption..... feature and then try to remove the image or the caption it remains. The image can be deleted and the caption text as well but an odd empty but outlined box where the image used to be remains and it is impossible to remove through usual means.

See: https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/206280/caption-in-writer-it-stays-locked-within-the-image-and-it-may-bug/

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert Image
2. Add a Caption by right-clicking and selecting Insert Caption....
3. Now delete the image or try and remove the caption other than undo it is not possible.

Actual Results:
Unable to remove object from document

Expected Results:
The full removal from my document the buggy and stuck object 

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Brad, thank you for reporting the bug. Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ? 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. Change to RESOLVED WORKSFORME, if the problem went away.

Please also paste infos from Help => About LibreOffice

Thanks for getting back to me.

I just installed Version: (x64)
Build ID: 98b30e735bda24bc04ab42594c85f7fd8be07b9c and the issue with the image captions is not present in this version as I can and I can now remove the caption bx after deleting the image and I can fix my broken document as well.
