If you use odfWeave to produce figures, you will probably find they jump about when scrolling through the document – because the figures and figure frames are anchored in openoffice to the paragraph and not “as character”. The only way to fix this in a finished document is to right-click on the figures and select anchor / as character.
But you can stop it happening in the first place by redefining your styles.
Define the styles
basicStyles <- getStyleDefs() ... basicStyles$anchor2 <- basicStyles$basicFigFrame basicStyles$anchor2$imageAnchor <- "as-char" basicStyles$anchor2$frameAnchor <- "as-char" ...
currentStyles <- getStyles() ... currentStyles$figureFrame <- "anchor2" ##defined in the other block ... setStyles(currentStyles)
That should nail them down.
