Hi, I am wondering if there is any way to create a pop-up window/image when I press a cell in Calc. Something like a hyperlink but instead of a link there will be an image. Thank you.

Forgive me for starting with a warning: a spreadsheet is mainly a data processing and calculation tool. Be careful with the (sometimes) massive insertion of images, especially if they are not optimized.

Otherwise, the attached spreadsheet shows a possibility: the images are set as background for the comments inserted in C3 and C5. Just hover one of these cells to see the image appear.

To achieve this:

  • Insert a comment (the text of which must be at least a space)
  • Show the comment, select it
  • Right clickAreaArea tab to select or import the bitmap
  • You can then hide the comment.
