I do see problems with the figures when I use the menu Insert -> File on a
blank document to insert AOO41GS2.odt. Instead of a problem with one
figure, I saw problems with figures 2,4,11,12, and 17. The document showed
a placedholder rather than the actual figure. I could delete the
placeholder and copy and paste the figures from the chapter file in most of
the cases. For figures 12 and 17, I had to delete the frame intended to
hold the figure, delete the placeholder (which was somehow not in the
frame), insert a new frame, and then copy over the figure from the chapter
If you turn on View -> Nonprinting Characters, you can see that figures 12
and 17 are unusual. The figure caption is preceded by several empty
paragraphs. I bet I did something wrong when I inserted those figures long
I inserted AOO41GS3.odt without any problems.
