How to position a picture in a Report Template?
« on: April 13, 2018, 06:04:14 pm »
I need to insert an image my custom Cover Page template spanning the complete width of the page. However the image does not want to be moved to the left beyond the apparent margin and I cant find a way to get rid of the left margin!

Perhaps there is a way to set a Background Image? That might solve my issue, but I havent found to do this either. Or a way to specify the position of the image relative to the text like there is in MS Word?

Help is appreciated!

One trick I often use is to design the cover page in MS Word, save it as RTF and import into my Cover template in EA.

You can set background images in the template too, but Word is way simpler

Thanks Nizam, that seems like a good trick. But I havent discovered yet how to import an RTF document into EA....
And you state that is it possible to set a background image in a template in the EA template editor, can you tell me how to do that?

Thanks!

Create a  new template, and from the Document Edit Ribbon -> File -> Import file (select your RTF)

And you state that is it possible to set a background image in a template in the EA template editor, can you tell me how to do that?
You can do this from the Document Edit Ribbon -> Insert ->  Embed Picture

Thanks!
