# [Writer]: Anchor images to centre of their respective cells within table? [closed]

Hi, I've got a writer table containing cells that have an image inside each. I want to anchor these images to the centre of their respective cells, so that when the cell/table is resized, they remain centered. Any ideas? Cheers.

Anchor them as characters, and use paragraph's horizontal alignment, and cell's vertical alignment.

They're currently anchored to page, whenever I change the anchoring to as character it moves the relevant image out of the cell that it is in, anchoring it in a way that precludes me from returning it to the cell it is supposed to be in! If I move the image out of the table, then change the anchoring to as character, then return it to the appropriate cell, the table moves out of the way, so it seems impossible to do it this way either.

Maybe it's because I copy/pasted the images in, instead of inserting them? Unfortunately this is the way it needs to be done, as the images I am using are contained within a single pdf file, and not saved as separate images. I'm not sure how to save them as individual images, and even if I knew how it would likely not be very time-efficient.

1. I don't quite understand what "anchoring it in a way that precludes me from returning it to the cell" should mean. But possibly a procedure like this might help: 1.1. Select the image; 1.2. Right-click it to anchor As character; 1.3. While the image is still selected (having been moved out of the cell), Ctrl+X to cut, and paste to the desired cell.
2. In general, anchoring To page is bad, linking the object to something ephemeral. My advise is to avoid this anchoring always.

By " anchoring it in a way that precludes me from returning it to the cell it is supposed to be in", I mean it ends up being anchored elsewhere in the table- another row/half way between two row (on the border) etc, and "locked in" to that row so that I can't return it to where it was. Basically, what I am trying to achieve, but in a different, random row/position.
