If you go to the Wrap tab of the Image dialogue (Format | Image |
Properties | Wrap or right-click | Properties | Wrap), do you not see
Spacing? Increase Right to some suitable positive value.

Aha! A completely different way to solve the problem. The Edit Contour
option still does not work - can't select or do anything. But this
solution worked, and probably a lot easier than trying to edit the
contour. I had the Properties window open numerous times, but
completely missed the Wrap tab.


Also, in poking around I note that there is a new version of LO
available. I hate programs that come out with new versions every couple
of months. Instead of installing it I think I'm going to uninstall this and install LO from the Ubuntu repositories. That won't get
updated so often.
