Insert image-from-file button

Posted on 2011-10-13

Sometimes I have to write user manuals with lots of screenshots in it. I have to insert these images into a Writer document, and it always bugs me that there is no easier way to insert an image. I have to open the Insert-menu, go to the Picture submenu, then select From file. I would like to have a button that is just one click. For two or three images the current method is OK, but for 100 pics not anymore.

I've tried to add image-buttons, but these are for other functions. Is there a way to do this?

    You can just drag/drop the image file from your images folder into your document. No need for a button :)

    After that you can scale or move the image the way you like.
