Including Pictures

fabian Hello There
Been here before (bought the software over 18months ago) but had other commitments that took up my time .
I've written the contents of an ebook and at the moment I'm stumbling through the compiler bit. Perhaps somebody can tell me this please. As you add your content to the compiler, would you add your pictures at the same time or keep them in a seperate folder. I ask this because (I'm using Word2000) word relocates the pictures either to the left or the right hand side of the page and makes the format of my pages look **** py.

I'm not all that computer literate so please keep your answers plain.

Thanks.  Michael.

EBookCompiler Do you see the pictures in the ebook?

If you do not, check the save options (instructions in Getting Started section of our Help).  What matters is how you save in Word, not where the pictures started.  

As regards positioning of pictures on the page, I know how to do it in HTML, but I'm not sure about Word details... this part would presumably be in the Word help.

rlemire All files, including pictures, must be stored in a single "source" folder and all documents must be converted to HTM/HTML format to be compiled by Activ eBook.
Most HTML conversions use standard placement techniques (right, left) for images. For more accurate placement you'll need to, individually, place images into Table elements or Layers. Personally I use Layers or "iFrames in Layers" for most content because it gives me complete control of positioning.
