 Regina ,

You cut a few corners here, see my remarks inside

Hi Fernand,

True for "page" layouts, but simple try a multiple column layout and try
to position a picture (anchored to the page)
The column boundaries are also gone.

If you anchor a picture to page, then the reference is the page not a column. Anchoring to a page means, that the picture hovers over the continuous text and stays on that specific page regardless how the continuous text is changed

When using a multiple column layout, in 95% of the cases the pictures are anchored to the page, because the editor want to fix the images on a specific place in his layout, and most pictures are wider than 1 column, see most of "magazines" layout. We produce 8.000 magazine pages a year, using OO-LO, and yes we positioning the pictures using Macro's etc, but in the end the user want to move the images and then we surly need the colomn bouderies as a guide....
. In such a situation an alignment to columns seems questionable to me. If you want your picture inside a column use anchoring to paragraph.

Besides that, you know the column width and can set width and position of the picture accordingly.
When using a 4 column layout, its problematic to have al this postions in mind 9 mm, 43 mm , 95 mm, ect....
I know that people like using the mouse, but using the dialog is much more precise and flexible.
here i can 100% agree, but we are talking about 5% of the users who understand the allignment techniques, the rest use the mouse , eye and boundarie lines :-)

Kind regards
