Description simonbr 2003-06-22 22:25:16 UTC
I dropped about 20 digital photos from a folder onto the Writer window, 
expecting them to be inserted each below the other. But somehow they are all 
inserted on page 1, in the same place. If you try to scroll the page then 
Writer tries to update the screen by showing parts of all pictures after 
another. If you try it for yourself you will see what I mean.

I took a group of pictures holding the shift key down while selecting 
them, then moved them as a group over to Writer, and observed the odd 
behavior mentioned when scrolling in Writer.

I'm going to mark this as new since I can confirm the behavior.  It 
does look odd, but it possibly may be marked as an enhancement 
request depening on what the general opinion is.

It's not defect. Writer is not optimized for such handling.
Comment 4 simonbr 2003-07-11 13:09:55 UTC
Did you try it?
The way it displays the pictures is definitely not "normal 
behaviour". You may be able to work around it, and it does not make 
the program unusable, but I don't agree with not calling it a defect!
