[Solved] Pinning Images

Postby Paullee » Fri Jan 09, 2015 9:31 pm

I'm using Open Office 4.1.1 on a PC with Windows 7. Using Open office Draw, how can I Pin an inserted image (map) so that it won't accidentally move when I try to draw lines on it? :(

There are some way for this:

1.: Use different Layers. You can create new ones, can freeze them, can hide layers separately.
2.: You can prevent the size, position of an object. Left click on the object: Position and size...

I prefer the first method: put the image on a separate layer and lock the layer (double-click on the layer tab to change the properties).

This prevents even selection of the image. If you merely lock the object (method 2) it can still be selected and that often interferes with managing the overlaid objects.
