Default Image blocks

Dear forum users,

I want to create a word document with default image blocks.

Attached is a example word file.

I want 1 image block on top and 5 image blocks on the right side of the document.



Lets say I create 5 blocks of 200x100 pixels.

Than when I drag and drop a JPG in the image block I want the JPG to be automaticly resized (in proportion) to fit in the image block.

I hope this is possible... but I did not found a solution to this. I hope you can help me out.


Kind regards,

Jarno

Hi Jarno,

You can do this using tables for holding the images. The tables should have fixed-size cells with automatic resizing switched off. The cell content and also be centred both vertically and horizontally for appearance. See attached.

Default Does not work

Hello Paul,

Thank you so much for you effort of helping me out here.

Your solution does not work when I drag and drop a image in the document. When I do the image is not placed and scaled inside the table.

Hope you can help me out....


Kind regards,

Jarno

Hi Jarno,

I would have thought it obvious that you'll have to drop the image into the table cell. If you have dragged into the body of the document, you can click & drag it again into the table cell and it will resize to fit.
