If you can, would be great have feedback about the last changes in Write.
I have uploaded a activity ONLY FOR TEST to
This version is for Sugar > 0.84, if want to help testing with Sugar 0.84,
the next week we will have versions for 0.84

Features to test:

1) Write: Change the default method of insert images
By default Write inserted the images "floating", I have changed it to insert
the image "in line".
Now you can insert a image in a table and in my tests, the images are easier
to use.
If you want insert a image "floating", there are a new palette, in the
insert image button with a checkbox to enable it.

anyway you can open the file created.

4) Fix paste images in write - olpc #2507 and olpc #7186

Now you can copy a image from Paint, Browse or Write and paste in Write
You need the last versions of Browse and Paint.
