Copying Graphics From the Gallery

From LibreOffice Help
Jump to: navigation, search

If you drag a graphic from the Gallery into a text, spreadsheet or presentation document, the graphic will be inserted there.

If you release the graphic directly on a draw object, please note the following:

  • If you move the graphic (drag it without pressing any key, in which case no additional symbol appears next to the mouse pointer), only the attributes are copied from the graphic and applied to the draw object on which you release the mouse button.
  • If you copy the graphic (drag it while holding down the Ctrl key, in which case a plus sign appears next to the mouse pointer), the graphic will be inserted as an object.
  • If you create a hyperlink (drag while holding down Shift and Ctrl, in which case a linking arrow appears next to the mouse pointer), the drawing object is replaced by the graphic from the Gallery, but the position and size of the replaced draw object are retained.
