        I updated to and suddenly inserting images screws up the page layout. I leave space for the picture and copy/paste or drag/drop the jpg file to where I want it. Everything looks fine, but the export to PDF is suddenly 2 columns, with the image on the right and the printed stuff on the left, moved up to where the top of the image is. When I try to fix it, nothing happens because the image doesn’t take up space on the page: the cursor jumps from the last line of type (or blank line) directly to the line below the image. It didn’t do that before! How do I fix this?

        I updated to

        LibreOffice 6.4 is out.

          I upgraded and it didn’t change this behavior.

        from the libreoffice pages:

        A Table panel has been added to the Sidebar.
        Comments can now be marked as resolved. In addition, it’s now possible to add comments to images and charts inside text documents.
        Cutting, copying and pasting of tables has been improved, with a new Paste Special menu option “Paste as Nested Table”.

        so upgrading to 6.4 should fix this issue.

          I’m not adding a short comment; the documents are, for the most part, a title, 2 blank lines, an image, 1 blank line and then all the rest of the text.  I  complete all the text with all its formatting before I insert the image and I want the text to move down below the inserted image.

        To all who tried to help: I completely removed the newest LibreOffice using Revo Uninstaller, restarted the computer and reinstalled. It’s harder than it was in the old version but I can get images to behave.

        Thank you.
