I've been frustrated with my experience trying to anchor frames (containing figures and captions). What I'd really like to do is anchor a frame to a character (which refers to the frame's contents), but not force a large white space on the page if the anchor character and the frame don't fit on the same page. In other words,
A) Obtain the reference character's Y coordinates, Cy
B) Obtain the frame's Y dimension, Fy
C) Obtain the text area's Y dimension, Py
C) If Py- Fy > Cy, place frame at bottom of character's page
D) else, place frame at top of page following character's page
Is this possible with LO Writer? What I've been forced to do at this point is to anchor the frame to the page, then move all of the frames in the document when my edits move text.
If you anchor an object to a character, your object will be treated as a character. That's why there are large white space on the line of your object due to its height.
Instead, anchor it to a paragraph. Then you have freedom to move your object around.
