Merging a picture into a layout

Recommended Posts

I want to insert a picture into a layout. The layout is a letter with mail merged inside address, etc. The picture is my signature (scanned as a jpeg). I can insert the picture, but it doesn't flow with the layout. In other words, if the mail merged information changes the length of the letter (some people have an inside address of 3, 4 or 5 lines), the signature falls out in the same place on the page no matter what. Is there a way to get the signature to flow inline with the rest of the text?

Maybe a webviewer displaying the signature via CSS underneath the text as mergefield starting just on outside of the edge of the webviewer.

The allocation of the signature, would then depend on the length of the text, allthough it can get a bit pesky to take unevenly type footprints into the account.

This aspect could suggest to do everything inside the webviewer!

Place the signature immediately under the text, and set both to slide up when printing.

... and if you follow comments advice don't forget that the effects of sliding and printing do not show up in browse mode,only in preview mode - caught me out a few times thatone!

Indeed but weren't this intended for HTML mails?

Maybe, but I didn't think it likely, because Filemaker doesn't do HTML mail.
