Inserting images into table cells in Publisher

Recommended Posts

I have been able to do the following steps:

  1. Create a table.
  2. Place an image (which places it on the page, not in the table).
  3. Cut the image (Cmd-X).
  4. Click into a table cell to place the text cursor.
  5. Paste the image (Cmd-V).

After these steps the image appears to be embedded in the table cell and adheres to horizontal and vertical positioning applied to that table cell.

That's good to see, but how can I place the image directly into a table cell? The above workflow is cumbersome when doing a lot of these.

1. Put your cursor in the table cell where you want the image

2. File > Place your image

Does that not work for you?

Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Well, yes. Yes it does. I looked high and low for a menu option and did not think to look on the File menu. In my mind, that menu is for "whole of document" actions. :|

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
