When i select another image and push button with brush (formatting copying), this frame disappear. After that when i apply copyed formatting to my image frame appears again.

When i push button with brush on the simple text and try to apply selected formatting to my image this dotted-line frame disappear!

PS: sorry for my english!

Thank you very much for your bug report.

I tried it several times but unfortunately it was for me not reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit).

Does this issue still persist for you with the lastest release of LO?  If we can not reproduce it now, then I would propose to close this issue and to reopen it if it appears again in a future release of LO.

changed the status

Yes, it does still exists at (ID: 5b93205).
By steps:
1. insert 2 images
2. select the first image
3. click on "copy formatting"
4. apply to the second image
5. move the second image

Maybe this depends on videocard (notebook lenovov z565, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000 Series).
Comment 4 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2013-11-30 18:30:47 UTC
Reproducible for me under Ubuntu 13.10 x86-64 with version, and 4.0.6.

There is a difference between 4.2.x and the others: in 4.2.x it is the first image which remains selected and in both other versions it is the second.

Still reproducible with LibreOffice built at home under Ubuntu 16.04 x86-64.
That said the ghost frame disappears if I click on the paintbrush button again and move the paintbrush cursor over the page.
