Inserting images into note $Text

An image (see below for types) can be dragged or pasted into a note's $Text.

To add an image to a note, select the note so it is shown in the text pane. If inserting into existing $Text, create some vertical space between paragraphs so as to make a clear insertion point.

In Finder either:

If an image pasted into the text is wider than available space, it will automatically be scaled.

If dragging from the Desktop, ensure the image is selected before starting the drag otherwise the image may not be imported.

To align the image, for instance to centre it, it is necessary to select the 'text' surrounding the image and use the Format, Text menu to set the alignment.

Supported image formats

The best form of image is to use are bitmap formats such as PNG or JPG (JPEG). Images embedded in PDF can be used.

Animated formats such a GIF or MP4 can be inserted; GIFs will auto-play whilst MP4s will show player controls when moused over.
