Create drawing with LibreOffice draw & save as .odg

Start open new LibreOffice writer .

To get .odg int Libre Office Writer go to menu ->insert Object-> OLE oBject->from next menu you get choice of Create New or from File. Choose from file. You will get search dialogue - use to locate file click ok; youwill see drwintg object in LibreOffice Doc!

your welcome- something you might look into if you are going to do a lot of drawing & text projects https://www.scribus.net/

(desktop publishing ) On slackware theres a build with no deps , not sure about your distro but i find a godsend

I've used scribus. For desktop publishing it is far better than LO writer.

the one thing that might put people off scribus is the apparent lack of a spell checker. So i suggest
from terminal

bash-4.3$ aspell -v
@(#) International Ispell Version 3.1.20 (but really Aspell 0.60.6.1)
bash-4.3$

if you see that and say you have a scribus file called mydesktopdev.sla in home directory then

$cd ~

$ aspell --lang=en --encoding=utf-8 --mode=sgml --add-sgml-check=ch check mydesktopdev.sla


oh & sla extension- but you can export to pdf in scribus menu & if you want you can import pdf back into LibreOffice



should bring up simple interactive dialogue box eg press i on keyboard to ignore possible spelling issue etc.

You can dump text files from other programs into scribus. I never use scribus as a word processor.
