Description vogella 2005-09-01 13:14:56 UTC

deletion of included graphics is not handeled very user friendly. Please check 
the attached example.

1.) Graphic is not deleted: Using the backspace key it is not possible to 
delete the first graphic. 
2.) Graphic is deleted to early: Place the cursor at the end of the document. 
Press backspace -> the graphic is delete immediately. Other word processors are 
first placing the cursor behind the graphic or marking the graphic so that the 
user sees that he will delete the graphic. 

Especially the second issue it annoying. I use graphics a lot in my documents 
and sometimes I believe that between the graphic and text I have an 
unnecessary "empty line" which I try to delete -> Graphic is gone.

Best regards, Lars

It is possible to delete a graphic itself when it is anchreored "as character".
The graphics in the document are anchored "to paragraph". In the 2nd case, the
graphic will be deleted, because the paragraph (where it is anchred to) is
deleted by Backspace.
In the first case, it cannot be deleted because it is anchored to the first
paragraph of the document. The cursor is place then right in this paragraph and
cannot delete himself with backspace.
If you are not satisfied with the offered behaviours (depending on the anchoring
of the objects), please file an "enhancement" issue.

Closed, this works as designed and is not a bug/defect.
