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.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.5 or 5.2.1

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo";
