May or may not be related to Bug 46447
Thanks a lot for looking after this!
Any suggestion how I could possibly look into my broken presentations appreciated.

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

Yes, probably a duplicate of bug 46447.

Please could you attach a screenshot of the slide 6 how it looks when the image is missing. As far I can see when I open your file in LO under Ubuntu 14.04, there is no missing image in this slide.

Do you still encounter the same problem if you work on document while you are not connected to Internet and the synchronization is not possible ?

Set status to NEEDINFO. Please set it back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided requested informations. Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards. JBF

Dear JBF,

as suggested I shut down dropbox. While working on my next presentation this morning, embedded images disappeared again. I'll attach a screenshot and the presenatation itself...
Weird though - the last file I uploaded was fine when I donwloaded it back to my machine...

Thank you for your answer. So the problem is not linked to network connection.

I think it is a duplicate of bug 46477.

Are you sure that you want being assigned to you ? Do you want to propose a patch to fix this problem ?

Best regards. JBF

Did you try to uncheck autosave in menu Tools > Options > Load/Save > General ?
