I am setting up a garden planting record with a map of the garden as a background image by setting it as an image object on a protected sheet to stop the map from moving with plant objects over the top which each hyperlink to a different sheet in the workbook with details of the plant. I can make it work on desktop but when open on tablet I don't have the hyperlink active.

 

I then tried to make the map picture as a watermark which again woks fine on PC but on the tablet the watermark is not visible nor headers etc. 

 

I attach the base file with three map tabs: Map has the plan as watermark, Map 1 has the plan as a pasted image on protected sheet and map 3 has the plan as a background. none seem to work on a tablet  ...

 

So is there a way to get this to work on a tablet? ( I have a samsung android tablet)

 

any ideas welcome
