[Solved] Pasted Images are coming out blank

Postby Angel358 » Mon Aug 31, 2020 8:06 am

Hi! Hope everyone is doing well. The issue I have is that my 25 page image document is displaying as blank boxes on a page. I have read and tried the other replies to check the graphics/images box, but it isn't helping. I've uninstalled and re-installed the program, didn't help. I tried to read the post about fixing my profile, but the guy from a beautiful mind hasn't returned my call yet :crazy:. How can I fix this please??? Thank you!!

- Are those images embedded, or linked only?
- Try to switch ON the option View - Images and charts.

In AOO, better save the pics first on your HD and then insert them with the dialog Insert>Picture>From file.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the *EDIT button if your issue has been fixed.

Thank you for your reply! Ohhh so here's what I did, maybe this is where it went off the rails. I copied and pasted most of the images on the blank page from another page where I did insert pics through the method of insert>picture>file. I just checked that page and my images came up fine. I would like to duplicate that page in some way because I need to edit it. I'm going to read through the link you gave me. Thank you for your help!

You mean a copy & paste from another page in the same document? I do that sometimes and no problem.
If it comes from another document, it should work fine also.
If you can reproduce the issue with a small document and upload it somewhere (upload is limited to 128kb here), it would be interesting to have a look at the file, especially how are identified the pics in the content.xml sub file.

I used to do that with no problem, I'm not sure why this one went awry. The pasted document is also on a flash drive, the other is not. I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I would like to put some of the images on the new separate document, there are so many that it was just easier to copy and paste them all and take out the ones I don't need. I will see if I can reproduce it so you can have a look at it though. Thanks!

I think it could be indeed a root cause. If the path to the image is not on the HD, it may lead to troubles to retrieve it, especially if the key is removed before the target document is saved.
