Output to Word

Post by RBH425 » 04 Dec 2016 14:39

I use the Narrative reports almost exclusively. I know a lot of people prefer rtf, but output to Word would enable pictures to be embedded within text. I have to do a lot of editing to move tables around with rtf, in particular the media.

Word will handle RTF quite well.

Photo + Caption in a table can quite easily be resized and positioned to allow text to flow around.

Image within a Source table can be cut & pasted and its Layout changed to Square, then text will flow around it.

I agree it can be somewhat fiddly.
