Description petr_aleksandrov 2014-01-20 19:18:01 UTC
Created attachment 92481 [details]
An archive with an example.

Problem description: 
There is a document with many images with captions (in frames). When I add this document to a master document, images are overlapped.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open the attached master document.
2. In the message box with "Would you like to change the document, and update all links ..." press "Yes".

Current behavior:
The 3rd and the 6th images will overlap another pictures. In the document "Pictures.odt" they don't overlap.

Expected behavior:
The images in master document are placed as in "Pictures.odt".
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

Libreoffice and Apache Openoffice 4.0.1 behave in the same way.

Dear Petr,

I can confirm that the import of pictures.odt into the master file isnt preserving the layout present in pictures.odt in 3.3.0, 4.2.5, and 4.3.1 on Linux Mint.

The simple solution to solve your issue is to add page breaks (ctrl+enter) at the end of each page in pictures.odt and then it will import correctly into the master document.

Still reproducible.

In addition, Pictures.odt looks also buggy. In LibO 3.3.0 it's OK.

Comment 10 Thomas Lendo 2019-09-22 20:13:10 UTC
Same as in comment 8.
Master document and subdocument both looks wrong.
So it's no master document bug anymore but an image problem?
Comment 11 Buovjaga 2021-05-05 10:12:46 UTC
Yep, not a master doc issue. Still confirmed with Pictures.odt
