I have not been able to insert picture from file or copy & paste a picture into the Comment frame. Is there a way around this, please?

Otherwise, how can I insert/paste a picture within a bubble for a specific cell?

I know it is possible to get pictures onto the spreadsheet, however, my intention is to get the picture to appear within the standard row height, though not as a micro thumbnail!

Thks.

Right-click on the comment (make sure you have the comment frame selected, not the text), select Format Comment, Colors and Lines, under the Fill field, Color dropbox, select Fill Effects, go to the Pictures tab.

*sigh* I wish I was so brilliant - but I learned the trick some time ago from one of Bill's books.
Glad you were able to make sense of my instructions :)

Insert/paste picture into Comment - fixed size

Hello Tracy

One more question please. Under Size, Size & Rotate, the default is .77"Hx1.33"W, how can I reset this to the constant dimension I need. Thanks.

Highlight and press Delete. You really can't turn it off. Other, somewhat option, would be to go to Tools, Options, General and replace the User Name with a space. But you'll still get a : in the comment box.
