Sample file has mouseover-thumbnails in cells


One of my friends shared a Stock Book spreadsheet created in Microsoft Excel. The interesting thing, they have applied a thumbnail function to relevant cells, which show the product's thumbnail photo on mouse over like a comment shown.

In LibreOffice this function does not works. All cells have the comment boxes open and empty. I don't know ods supports this feature, i have saved the file top Ods via Microsoft Office and opened it in MS Office, it was working but only in locale computer -i think it only saves the links to original xlsx file-.

I don't know it is a compalitability issue/a bug or enchancement.

But having this thumbnail function seems a very useful method while working on stuff like stock books or other inventory sheets which helps in visual interaction.

Best Regards,

Before looking at an import, I tried to create some thumbnails locally, in a LibO spreadsheet. From what I saw, no way, no mention in the doc. So Enhancement, not Bug.

I would more use a database for that, but my own opinion :)
