    Hi guys,

    After migrating to Mac last year, I've also begun my migration to iWork from Office. I now have one problem that I can't seem to resolve.

    I am trying to paste chemical structures from Chemdraw into my slides, however each item I paste have different size. However, my chemical compounds are a specific size that I need to keep constant.

    Is there a way for me to alter the size of items i'd like to post by altering the percentages? In the past, I'd alter the item's properties in powerpoint and change the item's size percentage.

    Thanks

    No way to change the percentage, but you can set the exact size and also set original size. So you can calculate the size you need for any percentage. OK, not as easy, but doable.

    Click on the image, open the Inspector, and go to the Metrics tab.

    Thanks taimy, I thought of that as well. Work out the ratio between the images and make it consistent. Thought, Apple would've done something simpler.
