Description sasha.libreoffice 2011-02-23 06:18:52 UTC
It is very easy to create HTML documents with Writer. I often use it for it. But there are some problem. For example, images saved in HTML have long and hard readable filenames. It would be great, if I can set filenames like "banner" "footer" "next_button" and so on. One can insert pictures in document creating link. Filename then is available on dialog "Picture" on tab "Picture" at bottom under name "Link. File name".
But I create document copy-pasting pictures from Gimp. And for embedded in document pictures is no way to set filename.

I propose, add to dialog "Picture" on tab "Picture" in "Link. File name" ability to set filename for picture and check for correct filenames for HTML.
Add preserving filenames, if pictures inserted from file Insert->Picture->From file or drag-and-dropped or Edit->Links->Break link. And if names not acceptable, then transliterate it to acceptable form.
Or generate filenames for pictures from Navigator->Graphics  transliterating it to acceptable form.

3.5.3 doesn't allow to change filename for copy-pasted image.
