Description Nicolas Mailhot 2012-02-08 07:05:39 UTC
A company logo can appear in lots of places in company documents (for example, in different places on right/left/landscape pages, etc)

Right now writer requires adding a new image to the document for every page style

There should be a way to select an image in a writer document and duplicate it (same size and metadata, changing one instance changes all)

> changing one instance changes all
What changing mean? Changing image itself in raster editor or changing size (and some other properties) inside of document?
Comment 2 Nicolas Mailhot 2012-02-22 06:48:25 UTC
Changing the image itself (for example after corporate rebranding, change all instances of image a of size b to image c of size d)
Comment 3 sasha.libreoffice 2012-02-22 07:22:19 UTC
Thanks for additional explanation. My be this can be implemented using Basic macro.

(and to identify images : just checksum them)
Comment 5 sasha.libreoffice 2012-03-02 03:41:05 UTC
May be such functionality already exist among OpenOffice or LibreOffice extensions. Please, verify.
Comment 6 Nicolas Mailhot 2012-03-02 06:43:01 UTC
It does not exist and this is a core RFE
Comment 7 sasha.libreoffice 2012-03-02 06:57:54 UTC
Thanks for additional search for extensions

In LibreOffice 5.2.1.2 is still not implemented an image clone/link function.
