I want to insert an image into Libre Writer (not Draw). I select
Insert > Image and it inserts the .png into the middle of the

in the lower right it moves the image flush right so it's way over
on the right side of the page.
I don't think it does: it moves the graphic towards the right side of
the window, not of the page. The Zoom slider changes the view of the
document but not any of its contents. If you increase the zoom
factor, the inserted graphic will appear to increase in size, but
that is only because you have magnified the entire page. The graphic
is unchanged in size or position on the (printed) page - a fact that
you can quickly confirm by going to File | Page Preview (or clicking
the Page Preview button in the Standard toolbar). It moves to the
right of the LibreOffice window because by increasing the zoom factor
you have enlarged the page display so that it now spills off the
right side of the window.
To change the size of an inserted graphic:
o Click the graphic to select it - so that you see the eight coloured handles.
o Drag any of the handles to change the size. To retain the original
aspect ratio, hold down Shift before releasing the mouse button.
o Right-click the graphic and go to Picture... | Type.
o Tick "Keep ratio" if desired.
o Adjust the available options - in particular Width and Height under Size.
This is all described under "Resizing an image" on pages 259 and 260
of Chapter 8: Working with Images of the Writer Guide (for version
4.2), available from
I trust this helps.
