When user switch on Image and Drawing toolbars visibility, he can see on each of them an "square-circle-triangle" icon. The hint for this item says: "From File." When it is clicked "Open file" dialog is shown and user can choose image to put into document BUT if document already contains a graphic object which is selected, clicking on it gives properties dialog. This one can mislead user because of tooltip saying nothing about properties, so user can expect that he will have the possibility to change selected picture to another one. It could be changed in two ways: - implement "From File" functionality for all of the time, - change tooltip AND icon dynamically, depending on selection. Please remember that first solution gives no possibiity to see item's properties via toolbar.

MRU->FL: I'm quite sure, that this issue already exists, but I could not find. This topic has been discussed several times without a result. It is not quite consistent, that the Picture or Frame properties dialog is opened when a graphic or frame is selected and the Insert.Picture.From file or Insert.Frame command is called from menu/toolbar. It should be more intuitively when the selected item is replaced by the new one in this case.
