A great feature in MS Powerpoint is the ability to insert a picture via it’s URL. While one can copy and paste directly into Impress on the Mac with keyboard or edit menus (when it works), sometimes folks send me a URL of an image they have prepared for me.
Instead of loading up Safari on the Mac, going to URL, and copying, is there a hidden way to do “insert Image” on the Mac but have it let me paste the URL? Or is there some other workaround? The dialog boxes do not appear to have a “filename” box like Windows does in MS Powerpoint.
And if you have a good trick for Impress, would it work for Writer as well?
