4. A pop up window titled Media settings will appear.

  • In the tab labeled "Advanced" you can set the position, type and size of your image or file. The option "Position" provides the opportunity to put the image right, left or center of the article. To prevent text from floating around the pictures, use center alignment.
  • The option "Image size" allows you to determine the width of the picture. Please do not use more than 800px as it will result in skewed page. The Image type: frame option does not allow you to adjust the picture size.
  • In the tab labeled "General", you can add a caption to your picture. The caption will be displayed below the file when you choose the "Image type" frame or thumbnail. If you choose the Image type: border, then the caption will only be shown when you hover over the picture. Please do not use any special character (&;%, /) in the caption.
