    Image Limitations

    • AP only supports certain image file types; .PNG, .JPEG, .JPG and .BMP
    • All 'Practice' images must have a unique name.  
    • If you wish to Create a DocX file (Word Document) from AP which contains images, then you must be using MS Word version 2010 or above.
    • Please be aware that some images may not appear correctly once the Docx file is generated. This may occur for example if the image you have inserted in AP is positioned within a "Cell" rather than the "page" (see Location in The Image Command) and the image is too large for the resulting cell and flows into adjoining cells in AP.  

    You may find that your Docx file requires manual adjustments in Word to ensure the images are exactly the same as AP.  This may include in some scenarios having to delete the image from the initial Docx file created from AP and insert the picture again within Word.  Click Insert > Picture, then browse for the image file and click OK.  Right click on the image and set Wrap Text > Behind Text.  You can then drag your new image into the correct position.

    • Images stored in the image library are not travelled out.  Hence images cannot be seen when previewing the accounts whilst working in a travelled database.
