DOC type label from Avery Template
Build ID: 55b006a02d247b5f7215fc6ea0fde844b30035b3 and other version I have used. After placing an image in a Writer document, some time later the the image will disappear and a box will take its place with the the text "Read error". I can the replace the image from the same place where the image existed and it will stay for a awhile. Sometimes the image will not disappear and will even stay through several save/edit sessions, then it will happen again.
This happens with ODF files, and has happened with any of the versions of Libre Office Writer version 4 and 5. The attached sample has the image present. Next time this happen, I'll attached the same file with the missing images.
The image was placed with the EDIT-PASTE SPECIAL and this is the image that tends to disappear. I have tried after the EDIT-PASTE SPECIAL operation to use the FORMAT IMAGE-IMAGE and use the LINK to select the path to the image and this seems to work. I assume I must transfer the relative image directory with the WRITER document. Just something to remember. Or create the PDF file to include the image in the created PDF.
Hello Bob, please could you attach also broken file? Attached file is .doc Word file, but you wrote "This happens with ODF files" ?
I see images in your file. Similar bug 52226 for .docx - caused by autosave, maybe autosave is culprit ..

I don't get an error. Do you mean I have to keep it open for x number of hours and then it will disappear?

Yes. I was using the presentation program to make a large slide show. Had just started with a dozen images on a dozen pages. Saved the presentation. Left overnight. Came back and all images were there. First action was to save and they disappeared. All except one. I know this was on the presentation program, but this is the same as the writer program, only this time I saw WHEN the images disappear. Hope this helps.
Yeah, sounds kind of impossible to test, then.
Same problem with writer 126.96.36.199 RC1
The image was embedded in the template. with the document that I create from the template, after a few hours of work, the image disappears.

Can you reproduce the problem with attachment 124077 [details]?
I have the same problem. I have done some testing:
1. Inserted PNG images tend to disappear (two of three disappear) upon close and re-open of document. JPG images do not have this problem, except in 2 below.
However sometimes a minimized bar, like a fat cursor, shows up on re-opening, when images have disappeared. I believe this is a MINIMIZED instance of the image I since re-inserted. When I click on it, it shows about six little green rectangles bunched together, and I delete it. This behavior is true for ODT, DOCX, RTF.
2. The disappearing images still occurs when saved to RTF format, even with JPGs.
I like to use RTF as the majority of users can open it.

odt file before error appered
Had the same error - I was pasting images directly into odt file from another program (using print screen and ctrl+V), saved the file and everything was ok. Then opened odt file with OpenOffice and added one more image and text, after saving the file with OpenOffice all previously saved images dissapeared.
Strange thing I noticed - luckily I had a backup copy of file with all images and I tried compressing all images. After doing that file became larger in size - 1633 KB, but file without compressed images was only 615 KB.
Open office had the same issue - if images where large in size and there were many images in the file, they sometimes dissapeared after saving. It looked that problem could be solved by inserting images not directly by pasting, but with Insert->Image and using jpg images. As I understand by default if you take print screen on windows and then just paste image with ctrl+V into file it is saved in png format which is larger in size.

Are you really talking about Apache OpenOffice or mixing it up with LibreOffice?

Yes, I mean Apache OpenOffice. Originally I created file in LibreOffice, but my colleague continued working with the same file in Apache OpenOffice and saved it in Apache OpenOffice - after that images dissapeared.
Actually I switched to using LibreOffice exactly because of this problem (images dissapearing) in OpenOffice. I understand that maybe this error occured because of some bug in OpenOffice and is not referable to LibreOffice. But i found this bug report and thought that maybe this error could give some clues.
I'm not able to repro it with:

I set status to NEW since there are confirmations in comment 7 and comment 9
I gently ask to one of the reporters if he's still seeing this bug in latest LibO 18.104.22.168.
please, give feeback.
I see it as well. For me it happens after importing a JPG file, then compressing it. Running on debian stretch. This is the latest version in stretch-backports.

CPU Threads: 2; OS Version: Linux 4.9;
22.214.171.124 is obsolete and no longer supported (the 5.2.x branch is "dead")
please upgrade to 126.96.36.199 and check if issue persists.
I can confirm the bug under
Version: 188.8.131.52 (x64)
CPU-Threads: 4; BS-Version: Windows 6.1
- import the image (.jpg)
- crop it (IMPORTANT: without cropping the pic does not disappear!)
- compress it
Can someone else reproduce it like this, or can I install the 5.4.x to test there? I have a lot of editing to do and it will all be this sequence of steps...
Version: 184.108.40.206 (x64)
CPU-Threads: 4; Betriebssystem:Windows 6.1
I can confirm the bug remains with this build.
- first compressing, then cropping appears to work and not blank the picture
- first compressing, then cropping, then compressing some more (600->150->96dpi) also seems to work normally
thank you very much for the updates.

So I can confirm this. However, it looks like a separate bug to me. The initial report is about images which are disappearing unexpectedly at some point in time without any easy steps to reproduce.
maybe is better to file a new clean bug report with reproducible steps.
we received no feedback from the original reporter since April 2016 (see comment 5)
New bug for my "disappears on crop and compress" issue, or the original submitter? Initially I thought it was the same issue, that's why I posted in here.
we are not sure that you are describing the same issue that "Bob S" reported in april 2016.
so I suggest to create a new bug report regarding your "disappears on crop and compress" issue... you can already set the status as NEW since Telesto was able to reproduce it (please copy and paste his message in the new report).
then I'd set the status of the current report to NEEDINFO, until the original reported gives feedback about the reproducibility or not of the initial issue with an up-to-date LibO release.
New bug created for the other issue:
