Insert Pictures

Post by beny » Sun Jul 08, 2018 11:09 am

In TextMaker 2012, maybe in 2016, the picture in the document could be inserted in two variants: simply as a picture (let's call it "normal" mode, it can be placed picture on the left, right, by the center...), and as an object (object mode, when the position of the picture can only be changed by dragging with the mouse).
In TextMaker 2018, only object mode is available. Maybe I just could not find, how to choose the "normal" mode?

If you right click on the image, a dialogue box pops up with all available options including alignment such as left, right etc.

I don't know what you mean by "normal" mode, but you can insert as a file or as a frame. Does this help?
Cheers

In v2012, you could immediately select the option of inserting an "embedded object" (conditionally "normal"), without using the "Convert to ..." option, and align with the same buttons as for text alignment, or the "object frame" .
In v2018, the picture is inserted only as an "object frame", and then you need to use the "Convert to embedded object" option.
Thanks for answer, it helped, I realized that in v2018 it was unsuccessfully implemented - it's too deep and too many mouse clicks need to be performed for such a simple operation.

This is not correct. You can still insert embedded images as before.

Either use the menu and choose Object > New Picture, or, if you are doing it from the ribbon, select "Picture" on the Insert tab of the ribbon and uncheck "Insert as frame".
