    Adding pictures to notes

    Hi, I'd like to add a picture to note, so it looks like this:

    I have read online that you shoul simply add a new note, delete username, and then click ,,edit note" or ,,format comment" (depending on the Excel edition), and a window like this should appear:
    okno'.png.
    Then, you should be able to add a fill effects.

    But in my Excel the window looks like this:
    Zrzut ekranu 2020-11-16 092019.png
    so there are no other options than ,,font" and because of that i can't add a picture.

    I have Office 365 Business.

    Its a few clicks
    Click on the comment edge, format comment, colors and lines, fill, select the dropdown, the bottom option is fill effects, click the tab for picture, then select the picture

    Re: Adding pictures to notes

    Thank you, but the problem is that I don't have this option.

    I click the comment edge -> format comment, but then I don't have a bookmark called ,,colors and lines", I only have one bookmark called ,,fonts".

    The link you've sent concerns previous, so called ,,Legacy comments".

    In the newer versions of Excel ,,Legacy comments" have been replaced with ,,Threded comments" that look and work differently.

    The previous ,,legacy comments" are now called ,,notes". They look like ,,legacy comments", but they seem to work differently. I think that they may lack several features (for example adding a picture).

    Does anyone know if it is even possible to put a picture into a ,,note" in the latest Office 365?

    It is virtually the same I believe with notes. the below link is for office365. you do have to show comment which I did not say in my previous answer

    Re: Adding pictures to notes

    I follow those steps precisely, including ,,Show/hide comment" and still I don't have a bookmark called ,,Colors and lines" ...
    This is the window I see after I get to the ,,Format comment":

    Re: Adding pictures to notes

    your attachment is invalid.


    When you have said show comment/note, have you clicked on the edge to select it rather than its contents

    contents is just a font menu

    shape is several options including those listed, you do not want a cursor in the shape

    Re: Adding pictures to notes

    I tried it both ways - when I click inside the note I have just font menu, and when I click on the edge nothing happens (an icon with 4 arrows appears but you can't see it in the screenshot)
    I hope this time I will sucessfully attach an screenshot
