Inserting graphics and screenshots

You can insert graphics in your projects from files stored on your hard disk or with cut & paste. Drag & drop from the desktop or Windows Explorer is not supported.

Note that although cut & paste may be more convenient you may get slightly better image quality when you insert graphics directly from files. This applies particularly to pasting from MS Word, which generally resizes the image very slightly (just a couple of percent) when you copy it via the Windows clipboard.

When inserting a graphic in a paragraph with text always type a space as the first character after the graphic, this will prevent the image caption style from being applied to the text you type.
