Extract embedded images and replace embedded images with linked images.

Extract embedded images to a chosen folder. Exported files can be named like the image/object names (if available). (If you have multiple named image objects sharing the same image you might leave this option unticked and OpenOffice's internal names will be used. So only 1 image for all these image objects will be extracted. Otherwise you get individual files for every image object name)

You can set to replace the embedded images with the extracted ones as linked images.

To re-embed the extracted images into the document you can use LibreOffice's builtin "edit"->"links"->"break links".

If you have 1 image selected in Writer then only this image will be affected.

The same extension for OpenOffice:

    I am new at using LibreOffice, and I am trying to figure out how to use this extension. Would very much appreciate if someone would care to explain how to use this extension.

    I have tried but I always get an error when trying to run it.

    Thanks in advance for anyone who can help.

    Look nice but seems to need a bit more work

    Thank you so much for this! It looks like it does exactly what I need ... except that it doesn't work with Calc, only with Writer. I'll see about adding support for Calc, and will post when I have. Thanks again!
