When editing in Writer, it is impossible to remove pictures or other objects.
Steps to Reproduce:
1) Start a new document.
2) Insert a picture, video, chart or formula.
3) Select the object.
4) Try to delete it using either the "delete" or "backspace" keys, or by cutting it via the menus or short-cut keys.
The object should disappear.
Build Date & Platform:
OpenSuse 11.3 x86-64 with KDE 4.5
1) It is also not possible to move an object's anchors, although it is possible to move its position relative to its anchors.
2) The only way I have found, so far, to remove objects is to change them to "anchor as character". Then it is possible to select them as text, and either delete or cut the "text".
3 (speculation) It seems that if Writer treats an object as text, it can remove it, but if it treats the object as an object, none of the normal ways to remove it work.
Taking it, fix almost done

Thanks Cédric. I look forward to the next release.
