They are 2 and 3 years old and there aren't any replies with any help? This makes me wonder if Kutools is still a valid program or company.

To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 3 years agoWill anything that gets made or used with Kutools Excel be fully viewable to people who do not have (or would not be able to obtain the toolbox). The image anchoring algorithm seems usable for me, but I understand that others would not be able to make similar modifications.
