Copying Drawing Objects Into Other Documents

In LibreOffice it is possible to copy drawing objects between text, spreadsheets and presentation documents.

  1. Select the drawing object or objects.

  2. Copy the drawing object to the clipboard, for example, by using +C.

  3. Switch to the other document and place the cursor where the drawing object is to be inserted.

  4. Insert the drawing object, for example, by using +V.

Inserting into a text document

An inserted drawing object is anchored to the current paragraph. You can change the anchor by selecting the object and clicking the \<emph\>Change Anchor\</emph\> icon on the \<emph\>OLE-Object\</emph\> toolbar or the \<emph\>Frame\</emph\> toolbar. This opens a popup menu where you can select the anchor type.

Inserting into a spreadsheet

An inserted drawing object is anchored to the current cell. You can change the anchor between cell and page by selecting the object and clicking the Change Anchor icon Icon.
