About Size'n Border

 

Inline Pictures

This function only adjusts inline pictures. The size of Floating pictures with wrapped text cannot be adjusted with this tool. 

There are two different ways that images can be added into a Word document. 

Inline images are anchored to a paragraph mark. This means they stay put. To move them you use the same methods you do for text. 

 
 

Floating images are not anchored or held in place. While this makes it easy to drag them around, it also makes them unreliable because they will move as your document flow changes. For this reason, we recommended that you position your pictures as inline. If your document contains floating images you can convert them to inline images using Word's Picture Tools Format > Position function.


 

Resize 

The resize percentage is an adjustment percent the program uses to calculate how much to increase or decrease the image from its current displayed size. It has nothing to do with the images original size or the images current “scaled” percentage. In order to provide the ability to adjust multiple pictures, which might have a variety of sizes and scaling factors, Zapps Pro uses 100 percent in its resize control to represent the current size of the image. 

 
 

As an example, to re-size multiple 5 inch wide images to one half their current displayed size:

  1. Set the Resize Percentage on this dialog to 50 and click Start.
  2. The images will now all be 2.5 inches wide.
  3. To return those same images to their former 5 inch wide size:
    Enter 200 as the re-sizing percentage, because 100 percent represents their current 2.5 inch size, which you need to double.

 

 

Selective 

Prior to starting a selective re-sizing, select in the document the specific images to use. Either select an individual image or select a range in the document that contains the multiple images. Selecting multiple images individually does not work, you must select the entire range that includes all images to be resized.

 

Border 

While re-sizing you can optionally have the program add or remove a 0.25 point wide border frame on each picture. Bordering works on all images in your document.
