Why can't I paste pics or graphics when on Excel Online?

Explorer | Level 3

Hi,

I can't seem to be able to post pictures or graphics into my shared dropbox online xcel sheet..

Is this feature not available? 

I've tried obvious, Ctrl+v 

Thanks

Excel Online does not have support for inserting images into a sheet. This is a limitation from Microsoft, and nothing to do with Dropbox.

Hey @SHUMAS, welcome to our community! 

Assuming that the Excel file is in your Dropbox, how are you opening it? Keep in mind that if you simply click on the file in a browser, it will open a preview, which is not editable. You would need a way to edit the file in order to modify it in any way. 

Send me a screenshot of the entire screen if you’d like, so I can see what you’re seeing. It may help me to understand your situation better
 
Thanks!

Hey @SHUMAS, I would still like to see a full-screen screenshot of this. If you aren’t comfortable sharing that here in a public forum, we can move to a support ticket instead 

Let me know.
Thanks!
