Size a picture in generated RTF

Posted on 2005-04-07

I do use a program to generate myself native RTF.

The RTF needs to contain references to certain pictures. Thus I do not want to include the picture completely in the RTF as the document size needs to be minimal.

I can do this using a field INCLUDEPICTURE. However I seem not to be able to control the size. However, that size is very important.

How to include a reference to a picture with the possibility of sizing it as necessary in the native RTF code.

As I am not sure that I post in the correct group, I put only 20 points. I will put more however if the solution is found in this group. (I assume this question to be extremely difficult).

    I don't believe you can do it.

    If you size a linked picture and save the document as RTF, when you reopen the RTF file, the picture reverts to its original size - this implies that the sizing information is beyond the scope of RTF.
