Description bblankenburg 2007-10-09 13:29:51 UTC
I made a presentation containing several images, which I inserted by drag'n drop
from my desktop. When I copied the presentation file over to the presentation
laptop, the images did not show because they were not embedded but only linked.
So in this case the presentation was broken in favour of "wasting" space. So in
effect efficiency is considered more important than correctness, which I believe
is the wrong way.

Dragging graphics in with the CTRL button pressed shows a little "+"-sign, which
should insert a copy and not a link. But they are linked.

I checked this matter:

- Writer, Calc, Draw and Impress: If I insert an image via the menu "Insert|Picture|From File..." the 
default is *embedded*.

- Writer and Calc - Drag&Drop: Default is *embedded*.

- Draw and Impress - Drag&Drop: Default is *linked*.

IMO the default must be *embedded*. There are two reasons:

1. Consistency
2. The "normal" user expects, that images are embedded (scenario see above (bblankenburg)).

P.S.: Set target to 3.3 as disdussed with FL.
