Description svenl 2004-03-16 21:00:46 UTC
Can we add a selection into the graphics dialog to change a linked graphic in 
a document to a integrated or a integrated to a linked with one click. I hope 
you understand what I mean.  :) 
And I don't know this was the right place for this future request. 
Thanx for integrating this future.  :)

Version 3.1.1

Do Insert - Picture - From File
Dialog for inserting pictures openes.
Check or uncheck Checkbox „link“.
Select file and insert picture.

Later there is no possibility to either change from an inserted picture to a
linked one or vice versa.

Please add in the „Picture“-Dialog (select picture, then right click / context
menu - „picture“) in Tab „Picture“ beside the field „link ‒ file name“ a switch
„embed“ or „link“ which always works.
If switching away from embed, one has to give a files adress. If switching to
embed, the linked file will be included. Also it would be nice, if the picture
stored then in file.odt[zip]/Pictures wouldn't loose its name it had before...
This is annoying already now for embedded pictures. (I know - this should be
mentioned in another issue.)

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".

You can change a linked picture to a embedded picture by simply going to the 
menue "Edit" -> "Links..."
This will list all the links you have in the document. Highlight the ones you 
want to embed (Multiple selection possible with Shift or CTRL and click "Break 
This will embed all the pictures

1) Insert - Picture - From File... - check Link
2) File - Save
If need to send file, Edit - Links... - Break Link is required.
right click picture - Break Link is more intuitive.

True, but we have a UI freeze for 4.1, so will have to be done after that. Grepping...

New concept art contains better location for break link button.
Comment 11 dudson 2014-03-03 11:41:53 UTC
Break link button is now at the left and has more space between it and other buttons.
Comment 12 dudson 2014-03-03 11:43:24 UTC
In my previous comments I meant the concept art of the break link button not that the break link button is implemented as a patch.
