Description Wendy 2020-05-14 20:20:40 UTC
I am unable to link or import images into Base. When I click the "insert image from" dialog box the pc waits (spinning disc instead of mouse) for several seconds and no image is added. 

I can add images using window pc, using the same technique.

Using LO version on both windows and Mac. Mac pc using Catalina 10.15.4

Steps to Reproduce:
I followed the tutorial examples for embedding and linking a picture


Actual Results:
After about 10 seconds of the Mac mouse cursor changing to a spinning disc, the mouse cursor returns and Libre office continues to work, but no image in a table.

Expected Results:
expected an image to be inserted

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Comment 1 Alex Thurgood 2020-05-15 07:15:12 UTC
This is probably because the app is not correctly notarized and therefore the OS blocks the app from accessing outside directories, see bug 126409

In the meanwhile, marking as DUP of bug 128233

A possible workaround is given at comment 16 of bug 128233, by enabling Full Disk Access to the LibreOffice.app bundle (under System Preferences > Security)
