I'm using libreoffice draw and I was wondering if this feature exists somewhere. I want to make a rectangle of a certain size. Inside this rectangle I want to show a flag of a country. The image of the flag is from google images (it's a jpg or png image) and I want libreoffice draw to adjust the image size to the rectangle size automatically so the image fills the rectangle correctly.So I want to make this drawing for all countries and don't want to resize the image myself each time. I want to assign a new image so it's automatically resized correctly to fill the entire rectangle. Is this possible in libreoffice draw and how? I'm a beginner so I need step by step instructions.

You don't say why you are choosing to create a drawing (Draw) document rather than some other type. What else does the document contain, apart from the flag images? If this is text, you might prefer to create a text (Writer) document instead. Use a table or tables to lay your text document out. I think you will find that any image pasted into a table cell will be automatically scaled to fit the width of the cell, which achieves just what you require. Note that table borders can be adjusted so that they either show or not in different places; the table structure does not need to show at all in your finished document, if that is what you prefer.

Tables are described in Chapter 13 of the Writer Guide.

I trust this helps.
