to get this
1. Select the cell, and "right button click"
2. Choose "Insert Comment"
3. After clicking on "Insert comment" the comment box will open up and look like this
4. Normally, all you want to do is just type in some words and then you'll get a "comment hover" when the mouse goes over the box, BUT, you can also get an image to hover when the mouse goes over the box.
So what you have to do is
4A - click once in the box, this changes the border from a single skinny line to a dotted line
4B - then move the mouse down so it just crosses the line of the box, and "right button click" so the second box pops up
5. Select "Format Comment"
6. Click on "Format Comment", and this box will show up giving many different options
7. In this "format" box there
is a tab for "Colors and Lines"
Click on that tab, and the box below will show up
8. Now, there is no word
saying "Image", what you have to do is click on the little arrow beside
the word "Color"
- as in this screen capture
9. When you click on this arrow, a sub-menu pops up, like the screen capture below
10. Move your mouse down
to where it says "fill effects" and click on that
11. Now.... yet another box pops up...
12. This new box has 4 tabs at the top
Usually the "Gradient" tab is selected
13. To put a picture in the
box select,...... duh.... "Picture", and click on that tab.
After you do this, this is what shows up
14. Below the tab "Picture",
is a tab that says "Select Picture"
|Once you see the "Select Picture" tab, you have to click on that to see the path to get the picture|
15. After you click on "Select
Picture" what happens is that it automatically launches the window
showing you all the images you have in your Windows "My Pictures" folder
If the image you want to
stick in the "hover" is in your "My Pictures", just select it,
if not, then click around to whatever other directory you have the picture in, select it
16. So then Click on the
(in my case, I selected a pic of a jeep)
You'll see a border go solid around the image, once you clicked on it
17. Then click on the "insert tab"
18. When you click on the "insert tab" it automatically jumps the image into a preview box
If you "t'ink e'ry ting copasetic", or if you think everything looks OK, just click OK
19. After you click on "OK", you'll see the image jump into the "Color:" box
20. Then you click on "OK" one more time
21. And.... as Ali G says "Booyakasha" - you're finished, and it should look like this
