    Default insert image in shape

    A simple question how can I insert a picture into a rectangle shape ?
    I've done that before but I'm not able to redo it again ...!
    The way I've do that before:
    - I create a rectangle
    - right mouse click and choose "replace photo"

    if I create a new rectangle, I have not the option "replace a photo"
    if I copy a rectangle with and included picture, and replace the picture on the copied rectangle, the picture is also changed on the first rectangle.
    Thanks for help.

    To add a bitmap image to a rectangle, or any vector shape, hold down the Shift key and drag and drop the image from the desktop or from Windows Explorer onto the target object.

    Once the photo is in place, click the shape with the Fill Tool to edit the fill.

    You can also import the photo into Xara, then select the target object, open the Bitmap Gallery, select the image and press Fill.
