Re: Try a table

In reply to: seperate images?

This is not perhaps the best way to organise images in a Word.doc document, but with so many images, (180? wow!), it might help you keep track of them

Inside your word.doc document, decide where you want to place your table. Presumably you will have a header to the document itself, and perhaps some sort of introduction underneath, so the table would be inserted under that.

Goto Table, (in the menu list) > Insert > Table and in the Insert table box, decide how many columns you want, and how many rows. eg if you want 180 rows of pictures with 2 columns, one for the image and the other a description besides it.

Placing the table will need the Center, left, or right command before the table is inserted.

When the table is displayed, you can configure border widths, border styles etc, (eg turning off all borders and/or inside dividers), by highlighting the whole table, then right clicking and selecting "Borders and Shading".

Then you can insert each image inside each cell as you wish.

Hope this helps

kinda... though table is the first thing i thought of..

In reply to: Re: Try a table

mmm.. it could work.. but.. those images are exported from a PDF document, since each page in a PDF is pretty small, it's a waste of paper to print out every page on one sheet, so i thought of outputting everything and put it in word, now i have two pages on one word document, cuts hte page useage in half.. mmm.. i need something that can be applied to the whole document, since their dimension is all the same, and the way i want them to be on each page are the same (two images a page, 1 inch space between).. i thought there should be a batch command or something, that can be applied to all, since i'm not especially keen on hand moving 360 images (180 word pages..).. Grin thanks alot!

Ouch!

It gets even worse, 360 images, 180 pages! Happy

Why not google for "converting pdf files". See what you come up with. There may be a program out there that can do what you want.

Good luck,

Use the printer? Or a macro?

In reply to: kinda... though table is the first thing i thought of..

Define a small page (say half letter) and put each picture on it's own page. Then see if the printer driver has the option to print 2 (small) pages on one letter sized paper. Most printers have the option to print in reduced format (2 pages to 1), but there is no need to reduce here. So it's doubtful, but you might be lucky.

Or use a macro. Loop through all images and put them on the right place on the right page. Swisse might like the opportunity to write a macro in Word in stead of his usual Excel. It's quite something else in this case, I think.

Hope this helps.
