Repro in  (image disappears)

Tested by:

1. cutting Schematic (image)
2. putting cursor inside of frame
3. pasting image
4. right-click on image and change anchor to "as character"

No repro  (image remains in frame, anchored "as character")

Additional information:

1. offered anchor option "to frame"
2. does not offer "to frame" anchor
3. In, able to move frame (with image "as character") and image moves with frame.
4. not tested with MacOS

Wrongly set to Needinfo. Repro also Win 7.0+. New. Although strange. 
Happens only when image is pasted before caption:
"Picture disappears when pasted in frame before caption and anchor type is changed". 
There's a (also strange) workaround: paste on selected frame and undo. 

(Another bug, needs be searched: undo doesn't remove pasted image).

BUT: even more funny is that image is already copied in frame, twice, if opened with LO 3.4. Not shown since LO 3.5. (also some temp. f-up with 4.0 when no image was shown, but reverted soon, so not relevant).
Let's set regression for this.

Setting keyword preBibisect accordingly.

I believe I can explain the observed behavior, but I will it to others to decide whether there is a valid "problem" here, and how to describe it.

Tests conducted with

1. Open test file.
   (notice, in Navigator, that in addition to the schematic (Name: Image1) two images are hidden "Image2" and "test")

2. In the frame, where the image is supposed to be copied, place cursor in front of the first character (i.e., "F").
   (notice that it is not possible to add any spaces before that "F" character)

3. Press Ctrl+M (or Clear Direct Formatting icon).

   (The two hidden images become visible (both anchors as character).   

4. Delete both images, place cursor before "F" again.

   (notice that again it is not possible to add spaces before "F")

5. Press Ctrl+M

6.  Now possible to add the image before "F" and change anchor to "as character", without the image disappearing.

No explanation for how the file got into that state, but STR should give enough information to understand likely cause of "observed/reproduced" behavior. 

Additional information

1. Starting with "fresh" test file, "cut" schematic image (Image1 not shown now in Navigator), paste before "F" (Image1 appears again in Navigator). Cursor goes to EOD, but image is not visible.  (Using Navigator, with Image1, "Go to" does not change cursor position, regardless of what cursor is placed, and not image frame is highlighted.  "Edit" does not open the properties dialog.)

2. Do not think bug 149458 (comment 9) is a DUP of this ticket.
