DOCUMENTATION: Page wrap / Parallel wrap & default anchor change

Only a memo; not sure if it seep through already. There where some changes with 7.0/6.4. The default anchoring is set 'to character' and 'page wrap' is renamed to 'parallel wrap'. The latter was already the case in some dialogs (Image Properties Wrap, but not in Context Menu)

Images (to paragraph) are now also included in cut. So pressing CTRL+A CTRL+X in a Writer document which contains (say only) images the images will disappear (this wan't the case prior versions.

tdf#135837 - Update anchoring of images in Writer
Comment 2 John 2024-03-10 23:05:16 UTC
This issue seems to have been resolved. Parallel wrap does not cause the anchor to behave in unintended ways. When images are moved the anchor point changes relative to the positions of the text and the image.
