The various spacing options to anchor a frame are not documented in help. At least not in German help for Windows. See attached screenshot.

You mean they should talk about Paragraph area, P. text area etc.?

Comment 3 Ulrich Windl 2015-05-07 06:09:29 UTC
Only three are documented (you could have read the help, I guess): character, paragraph, page. So missing are:
paragraph text area
left paragraph border
right paragraph border
left page border
right page border
page text area

I also think yopu could have found out what and when new types were added, and whether they were added without updating the documentation.

I don't understand, why you think I should have written this report on your behalf, but let's set to NEW.

Documentation did not magically update, i.e.: The problem still exists (in LibreOffice 5.1.3, two and a half years after reporting).

After a search I can't find any info about the picture editing dislog, not only the positioning details.
