Let’s say that you want to create a table in order to add new images. The problem is that the images won’t behave in the way you imagined. If you hide or filter a cell, the pictures won’t hide as well. They will overlap.
I’ll show you how you can insert a picture properly so they will hide together with a cell.

- When you have all your images selected, right-click them and choose Format Object….
- The Format Picture field will appear to the right. Choose Size & Properties >> Size and change Scale Height to make images smaller.
- Insert images into a table. Just make cells big enough to fit the images. While you drag the images, hold down the Alt They will snap to the edge of a cell.
- Click on each image (while holding the Shift key), then right-click and click Format Object… one more time. Go to Size & Properties and choose Properties. Now, click Move and size with cells.
- Select all cells in our table (A1:B7) and use the Ctrl + L keyboard Check My table has headers and click OK.
