Description ajlittoz 2023-03-10 19:45:09 UTC
Created attachment 185901 [details]
One line of paragraph text always below drawing object

Frames can be positioned anywhere in the page through the Position settings in the Type tab.

One of the vertical positions is "Bottom" relative to some reference, either Paragraph text area or Entire paragraph area (including spacing above and below). "Bottom" option aligns bottom frame boundary either with bottom text limit or paragraph bounding box bottom limit and wrap mode moves paragraph text above the frame according to its setting.

Draw is used to create an image. This image is made a single block with the Group command. It is copied and pasted into Writer. It is expected this drawing object will behave as a frame (since the same settings can be applied) albeit you can't apply a frame style to a drawing object.

The attachment shows that a drawing object can't be positioned at the very bottom of a paragraph. There is always an orphan line below the drawing object. Changing wrap mode has no effect. Choosing bottom alignment relative to Paragraph text are or Entire paragraph area does not change the result.

Drawing object position should be controllable the same as frame, at least when a single block is inserted.

Seems REPRODUCIBLE with Installation of Version: (X86_64)  
Build ID: 77cd3d7ad4445740a0c6cf977992dafd8ebad8df
CPU threads: 12; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19044; 
UI render: default; VCL: win – Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: de-DE
Calc: threaded |  Elementary (SVG)  Theme  |  Normal UserProfile  

Also with simple Drawing Shapes. Behavior of DRAWing objects here differs from simple images.

But I will have to think more about several details of my observations
