[Solved] Picture Comment

Postby Dizzy » Tue Jan 04, 2011 9:28 pm

Trying to use openoffice calc for work. Everything is working so far except I need a picture to show when you move the mouse over a cell. I've done the insert comment but it only allows me to type text. I was thinking it could be due to the fact I have openoffice downloaded on a laptop with windows 7 starter. Would downloading it onto a computer with windows 7 ultimate or premium fix the problem I have?

This has nothing to do with the version of operating system you are using.

I'm not sure Calc can do what you are expecting.

Perhaps what you are trying to do can be achieved through different means if you tell us what the end result is supposed to be. What are you trying to make?

Very nice! What a pity it doesn't work in Writer.
