Tried that, but it stll produces an image about two to three times the page size.
Fiddling this afternoon has shown a partial solution. When the image is dragged to the page, and released a double left click brings up a dialogue box, which under 'size', allows a dimension entry of, say, 15cms height. That instantly reduces image to sub page dimensions, and then that is stretched to fit page.
Cumbersome, but quicker than struggling to reduce the acerage I had before by a diagonal toggle to the page dimension!
Still think it ought to be quicker than that.
tx for that hint recap -- will struggle on!
