Insert an object (picture, image, chart, drawn object) to a specified location in a document.
To insert an object like an image or a chart to a specific location in a document, first of all bring the text pointer to that location by clicking at that location once. Now click on ‘Insert’ from the main menu bar. This gives us a drop-down menu. In this drop-down, we have a number of options.
To insert an image, click on ‘Image’ from the drop-down. This will open the ‘Insert Image’ dialog box. Go to the location of the required image from this dialog and select the image and then click on ‘Open’. This will insert the image to the specified location in the document.
Similarly, to insert a chart, click on ‘Object’ and from the resulting menu, click on ‘Chart’. This will insert a chart to the document. In the same way, we can insert some predefined shapes to the document by clicking on ‘Shapes’ from the drop-down and then choosing the required shape from the resulting menu.
Select an object.
To select an image, just click once on the image and the image will get surrounded by eight different green coloured small squares. This is how we select an image.
To select a chart, double-click on the chart. The chart will get surrounded by a thick grey coloured border. This is how we select a chart.
