Description Theon144 2011-03-22 12:54:57 UTC
I'd like to see the same feature that already exists in Writer: Text wrapping around images, so I don't have to "dodge" the image manually with line breaks and such.

I agree that it is useful. In Impress text is only inside of text frames. And images are separate objects. We can not insert image into text frame, it always remains standalone. 
It is especially important when using formulas as pictures inside of text. Each change of font (usually different comps has slightly different fonts) renders to corrupted slide.
Only one workaround I know: create content in Writer and insert it into Impress as OLE object.

Another workaround:
1. draw a polygon object
2. adjust text position (usually top right corner)
3. enable Fit to contour option
4. disable contour line
5. hit F2
6. paste text inside the polygon object

This should be obviously one of the main basic features in a dia presentation application. You should be able to at least wrap your text around an image! Ye, also in Impress.

Can this issue get assigned to a main developer with some prio?

How to export the document to OLE?

There is no such thing as "main developer", and there are no priorities. The Document Foundation has no paid developers at all, and you can't force volunteers to do what they don't like. (It is true that some developers are paid by some companies (like RedHat, Collabora and other), but then only these companies can decide what these developers will do, not TDF). This might be disappointing for some people, but that's the reality of the world we're living in.

You are right Maxim. I think the world is better off without money and companies who control us. Maybe we need to find a better way to get paid for Free Software, and still be able to do what we like to do. 

Did the Document Foundation never started a Kickstarter project? Or get sponsors / donations from big companies. Just like a charity. Big companies, including banks own that to us all!!

Doesn't this feature already exists (from ages)?

Wrap > page wrap on right clicking the image.

Ok, sorry this was with Impress.
Comment 12 Melroy van den Berg 2015-08-30 21:04:23 UTC
Exactly, this feature should exists already, but it doesn't ><
Comment 13 Robinson Tryon (qubit) 2015-09-03 10:36:20 UTC
All bugs with priority=highest should have a Version set. It sounds like this feature has been desired since at least 2011, so at the latest, LO 3.4.

Version -> 3.4 all versions

Bug /missing feature confirmed on:
Version: 5.1.0.0.alpha1
Build-ID: a8e4f75fe264f6ece37c154951cff53f2f4fa3e4
Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE)

I inserted directed in the textbox as an image and was used as a backgroud. I also pasted outside the textbox but then the text was hidden.

Although this enhancement request is much appreciated to have, I think we can leave without it too, Changing importance to High
