Hi :)
Have you had any luck in fixing the issue?  If not then it might be
good to post a new question to the Users List or perhaps just make a
comment in the old thread to "bump the thread".  I guess you have
already found documentation?
Regards from
Tom :)


Thanks for the reply - I've read the documentation, but the options
described there just aren't cutting it for me. I was hoping that there
was a more advanced anchoring interface that wasn't visible by default.

For now, I'm still anchored to the page and have to move all of my
graphics when the edits change the placement of the text reference.
Pretty painful! It would be easier even if I could just get at the
underlying XML data, a la InkScape, to be able to make my changes in the
anchoring location.

      If you want to work with the xml, copy your document and rename it
replacing the .odt to .zip. (test.odt is renamed as The file
you want is the content.xml.


I could do that, but using 2 different tools to work on the same document isn't really a good solution. The feature I like in InkScape pulls open an XML tree view and when you click on an object in the main GUI, the selected node also becomes the focus point in the XML window. That makes it pretty easy to find the element you're looking for and tweak it all within the same application. Using 2 different tools, there's the problem of properly identifying the desired node, then ensuring coherency between the XML view and the LO view.
