Hi :)
The grey"not-border" might be hidden if you are not showing
non-printing characters.  Do you see lots of backwards P signs, each
indicating the end of a paragraph? Regards from Tom :)

Hi :)
Ah, you might have a border (called a frame probably) that goes all
around the caption&picture.  If you can click on the grey border then
it should allow you to set wrap options there too. Regards from Tom :)

There is no border.

Every time I try to change the settings the picture suddenly resizes to
about half the size I set it to. This can't be by design. The problem
is a bug. Unfortunately, it renders LibreOffice useless for my work, so
I'll have to use something else. Maybe I can uninstall it and go back

At this time I have given up on LibreOffice. However, in the interests
of bug-fixing, here is the image that I placed in the document:

Iberian Peninsula 1037-1270. (n.d.).Historical Maps Overview. Retrieved
April 24, 2012, from

At the point where I gave up the document had two paragraphs, with the
above image (saved to file from the website and placed in the document
with Insert > Picture > From File), anchored to the second paragraph and
set to the right margin. I scaled the image to width of 290 pts with
"keep ratio." I added a caption below the image.

If I right-click on the image and select Picture I get a popup window.
Under the Type tab is where I scaled the image. Under the Wrap tab I
set it to 10 pts top, 10 pts left, 0 pts right, and 6 pts bottom. The
latter moved the caption down 6 points, but did not change the wrap of
the text in the paragraph surrounding the image, nor did any of the
other settings change the offset of the text in the surrounding

If I change the left offset to 20 points, as soon as I click on OK it
re-scales the image to about half its former size. This is why I say it
is a bug. This should never happen.

There are no borders and the background tab is set to the default "no

I encourage you to see if you can reproduce the issue.
