Hi Dennis,

Thanks for your help.  In answer to your questions:

1. Are you making sure that the OLE object is embedded and not
just linked?  Are you also making sure that the option to show a
thumbnail instead of the rendering of the OLE object is not

I'm creating the OLE objects from Insert/Object/OLE object, so I'm
presuming they're embedded.

I'm not quite sure where this is.  If it's the one that is
Libreoffice/Preferences/Writer/View/Tables and Objects, then yes.

2. Are you using more than one computer for this work?    And is
the original application that produces the OLE object available
on each machine where you want to view the document correctly?

No, I'm not.  I am storing it and accessing it from Dropbox.
However, as this service stores the file locally, it shouldn't affect

You are storing & inserting the the drawings from dropbox or locally?

Thanks, but the box is checked and graphics and objects are set to be
displayed.  Other graphics appear just fine.

I've cut out everything except a couple of pages and made it
available for download here:  If anyone can think
of a solution I'd appreciate it as

That document contains no object folders. Meaning that if an object were
embeded in the document, the document when extracted should have
folders/directories for each embedded object. Example:
LOProbs1.odt_FILES/Object 1
LOProbs1.odt_FILES/Object 2
LOProbs1.odt_FILES/Object 3

Further, the
shows two files at zero bytes (Object 1 and 31) and only one with any
data in the xml file: Object 9.

a) I'd really like to use vector graphics for my thesis and b)
Importing the svg files I've created using draw screws with the text.
I suspect Writer is having a problem with the fonts.

-- And just to add insult to injury, all the graphs I've carefully
spend a couple of days' work creating are now in the same situation.
Argh!  Help!
