I want to copy/paste an excel table into indesign as an image. I can make it work if I copy from excel, paste into publisher or word (as "special") and then copy/paste (or place) that image into InDesign. This preserves the content exactly as it was, and can it can be re-sized like an image. Seems like there should be an easier way? I can't "code" so I need the instructions for dummies.... thanks all.
Copy link to clipboard
Do you know that you can navigate to the Home tab in Excel and choose Copy > Copy as Picture (As Shown When Printed) in the Clipboard group? Then you can paste directly into InDesign and bypass the other apps.
I forgot about that but it's a pretty down and dirty method.
WHOA Barb! That's exactly what I was looking for... paste into InDesign and I can READ it and size it...etc.
I knew it was somewhere - thanks for your help!!
