Hi John,

I have inserted a JPG file into a Writer document. I right-click on the
picture, select Wrap>  Edit contour. A window pops up to edit the
contour. I need to enlarge the contour all around the image so the text
is offset further.

That sounds as if you use the wrong tool. The purpose of the contour is to set parts of the picture to transparent and allow text to float into this area.

To set a distance margin between picture and text use the setting "Spacing" in the dialog page "Wrap" in the property dialog of the picture.

 The Edit contour window has no space around the
edges in which to place a rectangle, that is, the image fills the Edit
contour window.  Enlarging the Edit contour window enlarges the image as
well, so there is still no space outside of the image to draw a
rectangle. And for that matter, I can select the Rectangle tool, but no
rectangle is drawn.

When you select the rectangle, the cursor should change in a cross with a small rectangle. It indicates, that drawing with the mouse will give a rectangle. Click where the top/left corner of the rectangle should be, hold down mouse button and drag to the bottom/right corner.

I have LibreOffice 3.4.5 OOO340m1 (Build:502) on Fedora 16, x86_64. I
hope someone can help.

Kind regards
