Aside from copying and pasting, or using a screen clipping to grab content to be inserted into our OneNote notebook, you can also insert files directly, such as picture files. That's what we're going to do right now. First, let's move to the appropriate section. We'll go to the Revenues tap. Make sure the Cash Flow Statement page is selected. Here we've already got some content. We've got a piece of what looks to be an Excel spreadsheet. We've got a link to the actual file here. What we don't see is a graphical representation. Let's say we do have an image that shows our Cash Flows from Financing.
We want to insert it here next to our spreadsheet. Well, in that case, we make sure the Insert tab is selected on the ribbon and in the Images group we'll click Picture. Now we can navigate to the location of our picture. In this case, in the Exercise Files if you've got them, in the Chap02 folder, in the 02_04 sub-folder. We've got one here, which is a JPEG called CFChart. This is our cash flow chart. But you'll notice down in the bottom right corner where it says All Pictures. That's what we're seeing here, a listing of all of the picture type files.
As we hover over this button, you'll see there is quite an extensive list. You can also click this button to narrow it down. If you only wanted to see, for example, the JPEG files, you'd come down to JPEG File Interchange Format, select it, and that's what you're going to see. Click the drop-down if you want to see all of the GIF files, Graphics Interchange Format. Well, there aren't any in this case. Let's click this one more time, and look at the extensive list. There are a lot of different picture files that can be inserted directly into your notebook, even WordPerfect and CorelDraw graphics.
So we're going to go back here, and make sure All Pictures are selected. There is our JPEG. We will click once to select it. The name appears in the File name field. Now it's time to click the Insert button to insert it. It's going to go to where the flashing cursor was. So if you hadn't click anywhere specifically in your notebook page, you might see part of it or you might see all of the image. That's okay. We can make adjustments. Click the image anywhere to select it. Now you'll see handles in the corners, and at the midway points on the sides.
As you move your mouse pointer over the edge where you are not on a handle, you'll see the four-sided arrow. So you can click-and-drag to move it. Now you might want to size it as well. So you can go to those handles. I like to go to a diagonal handle, because then I can adjust the height and the width simultaneously, while keeping its proportions. If you need to, you can move it again from the center. You don't have to be right on the border to see that four-sided arrow. If you need to, use the scroll bars to get the big picture. Once you've got it sized and placed as needed, just click anywhere outside the selected graphic to deselect it.
You get a good shot of what that's going to look like. So keep in mind, if you've got images and you want to add them to your pages in a notebook, just go to the Insert tab on the ribbon. You have a wide range of picture types to choose from.
