Place graphics in table cells

 

Place a graphic

You can adapt these instructions to position the anchored frame differently or to insert a graphic in a cell that also contains text.

note:   Avoid using cropped anchored frames in heading or footing cells of a table. Such frames are not always cropped when that cell repeats on subsequent pages.

1)Click in a paragraph in the cell where you want to place the graphic.

2)Do one of the following:

To create an anchored frame where you can draw, use Special > Anchored Frame to create an anchored frame that’s anchored at the insertion point.

To create an anchored frame for an imported graphic, use File > Import > File to import the graphic.

3)If the anchored frame is wider than the cell, resize the column.

tip:   To resize a column to match its contents, place the insertion point in the cell that has the desired length of text and press Esc t w.

4)If necessary, choose Graphics > Align to center the graphic in the frame.

Place a graphic in a structured document

If your table cells allow graphic elements, you can draw or import graphics in the cells. A new graphic element can be either an empty anchored frame that you can draw in or an anchored frame with an imported graphic.

1)Click where you want to place the graphic in the cell.

2)Select a graphic element in the Element Catalog and click Insert. The element’s definition determines which dialog box appears.

3)Do one of the following:

If the Anchored Frame dialog box appears, choose At Insertion Point from the Anchoring Position pop-up menu, and click New Frame.

If the Import File dialog box appears, select the file to import, and click Import.

An anchored frame appears in the cell, and a bubble with the text snippet GRAPHIC appears in the Structure view.

4)If the anchored frame is wider than the cell, resize the column.

tip:   To resize a column to match its contents, select the column and press Esc t w.

5)If necessary, choose Graphics > Align to center the graphic in the frame.
