To reproduce this problem start MS Word and place any picture into document. Then press Ctrl-A and Ctrl-C then in Writer press Ctrl-V. There appears only empty frame with text on top:
if double click this appears dialog Picture and there in Tab Picture appears correct preview of picture.
In Draw and Impress paste picture works correctly.
produced on windows XP 32 bit russian, MSword 2003, Libreoffice 18.104.22.168
Note that if you Select All of the document in Word and copy it to the clipboard, then you aren't copying just the picture, but also the rest of the document, even if there is nothing else in it. The behaviour is different if you select just the image and copy that. Unfortunately, not much better;)
I tried the various possibilities offered in Paste Special, but none of them works as expected either, and some made Writer crash even.
This seems to be a disaster area.
If I Select All and Copy, the formats offered on the clipboard are:
49166: Object Descriptor
49282: Rich Text Format
49363: HTML Format
49163: Embed Source
49165: Link Source
49167: Link Source Descriptor
49171: Ole Private Data
If I select just the image and Copy, the formats are:
49917: Art::GVML ClipFormat
49166: Object Descriptor
49171: Ole Private Data
Note especially that in this case there are some actual image formats there.
Anyway, I first tested with a slightly older build of LibreOffice I had installed, but now I installed 3.3.1. I now notice that if I Paste Special and choose the "Formatted Text [RTF]" or "GDI metafile" format, it works fine. Also the "Microsoft Word Document" format almost works, but there the image part of the pasted document fragment gets resized to a square. I can't get Writer to crash in LibreOffice 3.3.1.
If I choose the "HTML format without comments" format the result is the same as in a plain Paste. So is that what it does by default? In that case I guess we need to tweak the preferences for formats in some place, and prefer RTF to HTML? (This sounds vaguely familiar, we probably have some similar bug already open, maybe in bnc.)
Resetting to medium:normal as I can't make it crash in 3.3.1.
To repeat: The workaround to use Edit>Paste Special>Formatted text [RTF] seems to work fine.
I get the same results as described. I.e. pasting an image in Word 2007, select-all (ctrl+a), copy (ctrl+c). Open new Writer document (in LibO), paste (ctrl+v). The image is pasted only showing a path (no image seen). Double-clicking on image (or right-click -> picture...) and selecting the "Picture" tab shows preview correctly.
The workaround as described (pasting as RTF format) also works as described. However, pasting as "GDI metafile" has slightly strange behaviour. If the image is alone or if there is text AFTER the image, it works fine. If there is text BEFORE the image, then the image does not display when pasted (there is a blank space where the image would normally appear, it looks like the blank area is as large as the image). Can someone please advise if this should be reported as a separate bug?

This bug goes back to OpenOffice 1.1 https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=14613
With LO 4.1.4 using picture from attachment 92563 [details]
1) Paste normal:
Result - FAIL
2) Paste special (GDI)
Result - PASS
3) Paste special (Bitmap)
Result - FAIL
nothing was pasted
4) Paste special (html)
Result - FAIL
same as 1)
It appears that the paste detection code in Writer and Calc is broken. It is using the html format instead of GDI.

The 4.3.x branch resolved this issue with the Copy and Paste code in Calc. If we can locate this commit it should help greatly in fixing the Writer's problem. I'm putting a bisect request out there.

Note: Need Word 2007-2013 to reproduce. Word 2016's HTML output is a different format and works in every version of LO and AOO that I tested.
