All graphical elements are added in similar ways which differ only in the original selection and configuration of the element. Data graphs are added using the Graph Guru, which is invoked either through the Insert menu or with the toolbar button, to define the properties of the graph. Images are added using the Insert menu Image... menu entry, selecting the name of the file with the appropriate image and clicking on the Open button. Widgets and drawing elements are added by selecting the appropriate button on the object toolbar.
After any of these steps, the mouse cursor will change into a thin cross-hair cursor, , when the mouse pointer is placed over the cell grid area.
The graphical element can be placed in the workbook by moving the cursor onto the worksheet and clicking once with the primary mouse button. The graphical element will appear at its default size with the top right hand corner defined by the position of the mouse cursor.
Alternatively, the graphical element can both be placed on the worksheet and have its size determined which is done by click-dragging with the mouse. When the cursor has changed to the thin cross-hair, the graphical element can be inserted by moving the pointer over the worksheet to determine one of the corners of the resulting element, clicking and holding the primary mouse button, dragging the pointer to the opposite corner, and releasing the mouse button. The graphical element will then appear between the place where the primary mouse button was pressed and the place the button was released.
