Ed, For the picture you might try something like the following: CellPrint[ Cell[BoxData[ ToBoxes[Image[pastePictureHere, ImageSize -> 400] // Framed // Labeled[#, Style["A beautiful picture", 16, FontFamily -> "Ariel", ShowStringCharacters -> False], {{Bottom, Left}}] &]], CellMargins -> {{200, Automatic}, {4, 4}} ] ] However, I don't know how to keep the picture centered if the notebook width is changed. Using Framed and Labeled (or sometimes just Labeled) is a good way to add a "caption" to any graphic. In my opinion much better than using PlotLabel, which is practically archaic. To obtain a dynamic entry in a Text cell use an InlineCell. omega = 3.4 Then a Text cell: In the following the value of omega is Dynamic[omega] until it is changed again. Here the Dynamic[omega] is put in an InlineCell and then evaluated in place. Then whenever you change omega it will also change in the Text cell. David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/index.html From: Eduardo MAM Mendes [mailto:emammendes at me.com] Hello I have been using notebooks to write reports for a while. Although I am getting by (the package Presentations by David Park has been of great help), I still have some points that I am not sure how to handle. Ok, here they are: a) Insert-> Picture-> From file inserts the jpg as advertised however I did not figure out how to add a text box that works as a caption just below the figure in the same cell. Of course the cell cannot be evaluated, so I have turn off that option. If there is a way to add the caption, I wonder whether the whole cell - picture + caption - could be centered justified. b) Style - Text - How to create a dynamic cell, that is, suppose I have a text cell as follows After some calculation the value of the variable omega is 3.4. Instead of 3.4, I wonder whether it could be the actual calculated value of omega. If omega changes I do not need to change the text cell to update its value. One thing that I've noticed is that one has to keep the cell size to a minimum, otherwise lots of almost blank pages come out of the printer. Any tips and help will be most appreciated. Many thanks Ed
