Description Junior 2020-04-24 14:04:59 UTC
Description:
(WRITER) when I have an Image at the bottom of the document (in the background) I cannot edit the main text, it is always open.
I don't want to edit the image, I'm not clicking on the bottom, I'm clicking on the main text and he is accessing Botton wrongly.

Actual Results:
put a big image at the bottom.
edit the text in front of the image.
It is impossible to continue editing the main text, as it becomes the bottom edit.

Expected Results:
be able to edit the main text without accidentally accessing the bottom.


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No

Please ignore the attachments 'Image overlapping text before entering a letter' and 'Image overlapping text after entering a letter'. Along with the previous two comments, they represent issues not present in LibreOffice Writer. 

I was able to reproduce this issue under the following steps:

1. Opened 'sample with image on the bottom background' file.
2. Clicked on the image, on a row that didn't have text. (e.g. between the second and third paragraph, 1st page). The footer image was selected.
OR
2. Clicked on the image, on a row that the text was not overlapping the image (e.g. 2nd page, row that starts with 'Suspendisse potenti.'). The footer image was selected.
3. Tried to add or select other text on the top of the image. Text was not added nor selected.


Actual result:
When trying to add text in empty/ partially filled rows, the footer image is selected. The user has to click away from the image and then select / add text over it.

Expected result:
In consistency with MS Word, when clicking over the footer image in rows where there is no/short text, the footer image should not be selected. The background footer image should be selected only if accessed from the footer, and not from the main text body.

That is exactly what Duma reported.

The image should always be in the background at the bottom of the page.

MS Word handles headers/footers completely differently in terms of UI. It completely disables the main document when in H/F editing. (and makes it hard to edit the H/F).

I personally like the way LO readily lets you edit the H/F. I also think that images should NOT be put in the H/F if they are intended to spill out into the main document. That really complicates everything - and there is a fair amount of problematic code that exists just to cover this corner case. So IMHO, this is a WONTFIX.
