Can't see how to insert image into cell

Post by UFONED » Wed Oct 24, 2018 10:20 pm

Hi guys just downloaded this office software. I am inserting images in cells along with type. I cannot see how to insert image?? Tried to look at 'insert' but there is no 'image' to insert. Would love to know how. Thank you

You cannot insert images in a cell (neither can you in Excel). You can insert images as picture frames and link them to cells.

Ahh that would explain why all my spreadsheet got mucked up when I tried opening softmaker sheet with images anchored to the cells. I have used spreadsheets in the past with MS office and others with great success anchoring the images within the cells. This was the first time it hadn't worked. Now I get why the picture frame bit didn't work. Very frustrating I have to say. Thanks for the explanation. Here is my shot with Libre Office. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9tx2l2w472yr8 ... s.jpg?dl=0

Are you saying you were able to insert images in cells with Excel? I didn't accomplish that. Can you explain how you did that, maybe even provide a sample file?

There are tutorials showing how to paste pictures into an Excel cell.

see for example

That's still no image inside a cell, but an image anchored to the cell, position- and size-wise. PlanMaker provides the same.
