cursor in the document and pasted it there, (ctrl-V),  but that only
inserts the path and name of the file.... not the image itself! Your reply
seems to suggest however that you CAN do this so I must be misunderstanding
your instructions, sorry - can you clarify please?

The missing info is this:
Copy the frame with the image to the clipboard. Then position your cursor
where you need the image in the text. Then paste.

do? I consider this to be very fundamental to preparation and layout of a
publication!! I know it would make my life a hell of a lot easier with what
I do and I'm very happy to just have to 'tweak' the position here and there
on my final proofing.
