Description Mack 2011-10-25 19:35:39 UTC
Created attachment 52771 [details]
open, see picture, note size, and caption,  Save as .doc, then REOPEN.  Image size and anchor have changed.

Problem description: Anchor Formatting for all captioned images when saving as a .doc file, is converted to Anchor as character.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Insert an image
2. Caption it
3. Anchor as Paragraph
4. Save as .doc
5. Reload, see Anchor now as character.  

Current behavior: Anchor Formatting for all captioned images when saving as a .doc file.  This really messes with the captions as well.

Expected behavior:Anchor Formatting for all captioned images when saving as a .doc file.

Nothing changed visually, nothing funny in the image or caption, but anchor did change.
However, is this a file format limitation, ie. .doc doesn't have Anchor to paragraph?

Indeed, it must be the general compatibility issue: export what type of Writer anchoring to what type of Word.

the problem here is that DOC/DOCX/RTF format supports only AS character and AT character as anchoring options, hence this is inevitable.

we can't add new anchor types to Word formats.
