Picture when mouse over cell?

Postby Greg » Tue Sep 02, 2008 7:20 pm

Is it at all possible for Calc to display an image (or picture file) when the mouse is hovering over a cell? I am aware of the:

insert - picture - from file

method of inserting a picture into the cell, but want to have it displayed only when the mouse is placed over the cell, I suppose similarly to the "add note" function.

Many thanks.

I don't think so, that's not really a standard feature of a spreadsheet.

Greg, is something like this what you're looking for? You can insert an image into a note; that's about as close as you're going to get.
