Description macias 2008-07-27 12:00:20 UTC
Currently when I insert an image (eps) and later I change this eps file (on 
the disk) OOW won't refresh the image in the document. So I have to delete the 
inserted image and insert it again.
This is good behaviour for someone who would like to be sure after insert the 
document won't change "by itself", but it is bad for someone who does not have 
single document but rather have several files and work on them to produce one 
final document.
Imagine OOW document with 100 images that require update. You can change the 
images but then you additionally have to re-insert all those images. This is 
tiresome task.

So please provide option for the image, can be auto-refreshed. What's more 
provide function to refresh selected image, so user can have images without 
auto-refresh but she/he can still able to refresh one/two images when 

NOTE: when the image file is missing image should not be refreshed to empty, 
it should keep the previous value. The most common case: I send one file to 
someone to review instead of 100 files, the images should still be visible.

You can refresh a linked image via "Tools.Update.Links" or in the dialog
But Auto-refresh is not available.

Sorry for missing piece -- I am of course not talking about linked images, but 
embedded. Only with embedded images I can work with document as single file 
and send document as single file.
