Images again disappeared from my odt file. I have read the other posts about disappearing images, and have now changed various memory options for AOO Writer, and have also edited my graphics for smaller file sizes. So I hope this won't happen to me again. However, I may have a clue that would help folks fix the underlying bug. (This is the second time images have disappeared from a file for me.)Today's circumstances: I had a file with approximately 60 images that I saved with a different filename. I then proceeded to change the "new" file, removing most of its pages (and corresponding images, which were 1 per page). When I also opened the previous file, most of its images had disappeared, and were replaced by a rectangle that said [file read error]. (Or similar error message about graphic cannot be displayed.) When I closed the "previous" file and reopened it (I might have saved the file in the interim -- clearly an error on my part), when I reopened the file, instead of the rectangle and error message, the affected images were simply gone. The ones still in the file appear to be images that I had inserted into other odt documents. The images that disappeared seem to be those that I deleted from the "saved as" different filename document. At least, that seems to be the case today.The previous time that images disappeared, it may have been related to the fact that I moved images from one folder to another and may also have renamed some. I believe, however, that I went through the same process as today -- that I saved a file with a new filename, then proceeded to edit it and remove some of its images. When I then opened the "original" file, those corresponding images were replaced with this rectangle-and-error-message. When I tried to insert those same pictures again, I still got the rectangle and error message. Only when I closed and reopened the file was it possible to reinsert the pictures.This suggests that if I do a "save as new filename", I should possibly close AOO and then reopen it before editing the new, saved-as new-filename document. Do the forum folks think this would prevent the image-disappearing behavior?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
