I came to decision that It's not good way to use OLE in my situation. :(
In my opinion OLE logic is not rock solid yet.

Unfortunately OLE is one area that has no equivalent in ODF (v1.2 of the
specification references the 1995 work "Inside OLE" by Kraig Brockschmidt).
In fact OLE is a massively complex design that appears to do what it does
(hand off a foreign blob of content for external editing and receive an
updated foreign blob back) deceptively well. Use of OLE will likely remain
potentially problematic for interoperability until the OLE data structure
spec ( MS-OLEDS <>  )
is listed in the  Open Specification Promise
. Even then there will likely be people unhappy about using this technology.

I think it's the best way for me that inset (not linked!) pictures in DRAW
and put arrows, leaders on it and than making group and copy/paste to
WRITER unfortunately...

You could still use linked graphics, but perhaps try and link to a PNG
exported from the Draw file. This way you can maintain the location (in the
file system) of the images and update a given image (or many) in Draw, while
leaving the graphics linked in Writer.

Best wishes, Owen.
