Description 994phij 2014-05-18 15:03:45 UTC
Created attachment 99277 [details]
example document

Steps to reproduce:

Create a new writer document
insert a picture and anchor it 'as character'
tick Edit -> Changes -> Record
write some text after the picture (as a spacer)
put the cursor immediately after the picture, press backspace, select and copy the picture, and paste it after the text.

It is not clear at first glance whether the image has been moved from the top of the text to the bottom, or vice versa - you have to untick Edit -> Changes -> Show to find out.  It should be clear without looking at the final document.

Also, I found this on and  Am I meant to put the earliest or latest of the two?

Earliest :) Changed version
Comment 2 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-05-29 10:10:54 UTC
Confirmed its also in 3.6 on Linux. Simple remedy would be do have some type of X sign on the image or something like that after it was deleted, as an indication that it has been deleted.
