Hi :)  
Thanks :)  

Hmm, that vanishing images problem kinda sounds familiar! :(  It was discussed on the Documentation 
Team's mailing list a couple of years ago so i have CC'd this email to them as they found a good 

I found that bumping up the memory settings seemed to help a bit 
Tools - Options - Memory
but mostly the problem seemed to vanish when i had saved the images in the same folder as the 
document, or in a sub-folder as would happen with html pages.  I was never completely sure if the 
main answer was having the document and images on my local desktop rather than some on the network 
and some on the file-server.  The problem eventually disappeared for me but i was never entirely 
certain why.  

The issue is a long-running bug that really seems to be a collection of bugs each of which has the 
same final outcome but each having very different causes with different variables.  The Docs Team 
managed to pin-down 1 specific instance and that seemed to get fixed.  Another problem is that the 
bug(s) is/are very rare and difficult to reproduce so it's difficult to pin anything down.  After 
it almost magically stopped misbehaving  on my own machine i could not get it to happen again on 
any machine at work :(   (or should that be a smiley rather than a frown?)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] How to downgrade from 4.0.2. to 3.6.6

Well, I may wait for 4.0.3 and see if that fixes anything. I 
did check the bugs list and I don't see my specific bug 
mentioned, but it may manifest itself in different ways, so 
maybe it will be fixed in 4.0.3.

The bug that makes LO 4 unusable for me is drawings no 
longer save when pasted into Writer (exit LO, re-open the 
document, and the drawings are gone). A significant amount 
of my work involves making drawings in LO Draw and using 
them in Writer documents. What I have been doing as a 
workaround is pasting screenshots of the drawings into Writer.

Thanks for all the replies...

Hmm, you caught me out.  What i described is what i wish i did and i keep promising myself i 
will do next time, this time, each time but never quite get around to it.  Errr, well tried the 
4.0.0 fairly early but really liked it and stuck with it.  I was going to hunt around the 
different articles published at the time to solve problems raised in their various lists of 
comments.  A few seemed so very trivial that it made me wonder if the commenter had ever 
installed anything before.  Sadly i didn't even get through that let alone helping with testing 
out listed bugs.  So, this time i really have downloaded the beta.  Hopefully my good intentions 
wont get so side-tracked this time!

Do you have a link to the beta versions? I have the opensuse version of
4.0.2 with latest update (yesterday) and 4.0.2 from LibreOffice parallel
installed. Both had same two major problems for me since my cleints now
usually send .docx documents and I do alot of table formatting with the
number formatting columns, some of it doesn't work again.

If I could get a hold of 4.0.3 and if it still has the problems I'll
report them again as bugs.
