    Default Is it possible to apply changes to all the images in a LibreOfficedocument?

    Hi,

    For instance, on all the images on a document do things like anchor all
    the images to paragraph, or tell all the images to add a spacing of,
    say, 2 mm, to text (in the wrap tab)?

    As it is, I have to go image by image... on text, I know how to use
    styles. On images, I have not seen that... :-?


    If this can be googled, just tell me a cute search string to do it... I
    just can't think of one at the moment, that doesn't generate a million
    hits...

    I found something. With an image selected, press F11 (styles). I get the
    dialog for style for graphics (it is a frame style, which is why I did
    not notice it before). Some properties can be changed (not anchor, though).

    Then you have to go clicking on each picture, and then clicking on the
    "graphic" style on the style dialog... if it is a hundred such, then two
    hundred clicks. And the anchor is not changed.


    For changing the anchor of all images, I found a reference to directly
    edit the XML file and edit all entries with a text editor (search and
    replace). And also to change similar entry on the style.

    Awful...

    Even if it works, as that's apache OO, not LO.

    Actually 7900000 hits... I'm now on 48000 hits: "libreoffice pictures
    properties".
