Hi there, is there a way to add pictures to Notes in Excel Office 365 on Mac? 

 

I was able to do it on previous versions of excel, when Notes was previously just termed Comments by using:

1.Edit comment

2.Format comment

3.Color fill in etc...

However, the only formatting I am able to do is only format the shape.

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi @blueasid11 

 

Weird one as the official Microsoft support page says you can still add an image to Notes.

 

https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/the-difference-between-threaded-comments-and-notes-75a51eec...

 

Perhaps maybe try it on a different spreadsheet, and/or another Mac computer to see if it works?

 

Best wishes!

Damien

@blueasid11 ,

At least on Windows it works as before from right click menu

I can confirm that this feature is broken and gone in the current PC build as well.
