Jumping Figures in odfWeave

For some reasons (aka default style), figures in odfWeave are not anchored “as character”. This makes them jump around. The solution is relatively easy: change the default style. Except, of course, that there is no visible option to change the anchoring of graphic frames in LibreOffice/OpenOffice.

Here’s how to do it: (1) in your source file, paste a picture (any picture will do). (2) right-click on the picture, and choose “anchor: as character” (3) open the “styles and formatting” box, and choose “frame styles”. (3) select the “graphics” style. (4) choose “new style from selection: update style”.

You can now run odfWeave, and the figures no longer jump around. Who knows, maybe bug 14008 in OpenOffice will be addressed one day…
