Description Brock McNuggets 2015-07-15 02:52:03 UTC
Default contour is very tight. Seems the more common desire would be to have some space around an image. 

Shown here: https://youtu.be/w6Qcl-w7s5c?t=2m50s

Older version but still applies.

Your video is off topic. Please attach a simple screen copy showing the problem.

Set status to NEEDINFO, please, set it back to UNCONFIRMED once you have
provided requested information.

Best regards. JBF

No space by default

Which default value do you propose? Please, take into account that the unit may differ from a user to another.

Best regards. JBF
Comment 4 Adolfo Jayme Barrientos 2015-07-16 12:10:02 UTC
It is pretty tight indeed (the mileage obviously varies with different images, but still). Anyone who has ever taken a book should perceive what a minimal margin should be. The current value should be doubled at least.
Comment 5 Brock McNuggets 2015-07-16 15:40:19 UTC
The current default is zero, so doubling it would not do much good. :)

I would go with 0.10 inches which is shown as 2.54 mm, 0.25 cm, 0.60 pc, and 7.20 pt.

Would not be bothered if each of those were doubled.
Comment 6 Cor Nouws 2016-08-25 10:28:06 UTC
I suggest 2 mm default spacing.

Maybe for LTR languages, that should be right of the image and for RTL left from the image?
Comment 7 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-09-09 19:21:28 UTC
Would be useful to use 1/8 (0.13) inches as that is one of the presets in the spacing  drop down list in the sidebar and the default used in MS Word and Google Docs. This likely can be considered a duplicate of bug 87720.
Comment 8 Bryce 2016-09-09 21:54:13 UTC
Keep in mind if you increase the space you must also enable the control to adjust the space.  It's disabled by default:

Comment 10 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-09-10 11:27:14 UTC
The control to adjust image margins is always enabled in the image dialog and in the sidebar.
Comment 11 Heiko Tietze 2016-09-12 09:08:15 UTC
Removing UX, please apply the suggestion in comment 7 with 1/8" (3mm when converted to SI).

It sounds to me like an easyhack, please add the codepointers (NEEDINFO). Hard to say what topic/skill is needed. Jani?
Comment 12 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-09-12 21:59:04 UTC
Either this bug or bug 102011 should be closed as duplicates as the default margins would be set on the image, whether or not contour was enabled or not.
Comment 13 Cor Nouws 2016-09-12 22:02:47 UTC
ok fine - let's close this one - the other has more info and such
