Inserting an image from the Gallery

The Gallery provides a convenient way to group reusable objects such as graphics and sounds that can be inserted into documents. The Gallery is explained in more depth in Chapter 11 (Graphics, the Gallery, and Fontwork) in the Getting Started guide.

This section explains the basics of inserting a picture into Calc from the Gallery.

  1. To open the Gallery, choose Tools > Gallery, or click on the Gallery icon Image:GalleryIcon3.png.
  2. Navigate through the Gallery to find the desired picture.
  3. To insert the picture, either right-click and choose Insert > Copy, or click and drag the picture into the spreadsheet.
Gallery in Calc

By default, the Gallery is docked above the Calc workspace. To expand the Gallery, position the pointer over the line that divides it from the top of the workspace. When the pointer changes to parallel lines with arrows, click and drag downward. The workspace resizes in response.

To expand the Gallery without affecting the workspace, undock it so it floats over the workspace. To do so, hold down the Control key and double-click on the upper part of the Gallery next to the View icons. Double-click in the same area to dock it again (restore it to its position over the workspace).

When the Gallery is docked, to hide it and view the full Calc workspace, click the Hide/Show button in the middle of the thin bar separating the Gallery from the workspace.

To close the Gallery, choose Tools > Gallery to uncheck the Gallery entry, or click on the Gallery icon again.
