This is an issue I also planned to report in a slightly different way. The way
how I think it could be solved is the following. There are two options.

There should be a page called Insert Image Settings under the Tools -> Option
-> LibreOffice Writer item containing the following settings from the
right-click menu of an image:
- Insert As: Stripped HTML/HTML format without comments/Bitmap Image
- Anchor: To Page/To Character/To Character/As Character
- Align: Left/Center/Right and Top to Anchor/Middle to Anchor/Bottom to Anchor
- Arrange: In Front of Others/Behind Others (Forward One and Back One are
pointless here)
- Size: Original/Fixed Width:X/Fixed Height:Y/Fixed Size:X*Y

Yes, these things can be adjusted after the image has been inserted but if you
work with a lot of images then it is quite cumbersome.

I almost always use the anchor "As Character" but I know someone who uses "To
Page" all the time so it would be nice to have it as a configurable setting.


The newly inserted image just should copy the settings of the last image. It
looks to be easy for the Insert As, Anchor and Align settings and maybe it
could work for the Arrange as well. 

Only the size setting would be missing which is bad but this solution seems to
be much easier than adding a new page to the Options dialog. So I could accept
this solution as well.
