images in headers

images in headers

Is there any trick to insert an image .BMP in the header of a document?
I've tried to scale it according to header dimensions, but I can't view on print preview.
Some ideas?
Thanks to all!

RE: images in headers

My only problem with it was getting it to the right size initially.  Once it was the right size, I had no trouble seeing it or printing.  But getting it to a suitable size is the tricky bit.  It might just be that you haven't quite got the bitmap the risght size to fit.

[It would be much better if you could just drop in any graphic, not just a bitmap.]

Life is non-linear...

RE: images in headers

Instead of pasting the bmp file into the mcd file, try inserting it as a picture (Ctrl+T) with "filename.bmp". You might define the bmp file as a variable such as


and enter the text 'header' (without quotes) in the placeholder of the picture (Ctrl+T).

That way you can put the header in a separate bmp file outside of the mcd file. Editting the bmp file will change the way the picture looks in the mcd file. Resize it as much as you wish till it looks good.

This keeps the mcd file rather small, especially if you have a large number of pages...........
