How do I insert a picture in a comment in Excel 2016 for Mac?

Hello!

I need to insert a comment and then insert a picture to display inside that comment. I am finding many explanations online (YouTube, forums, etc.) for how to do so in previous versions of Office, but I cannot find any explanation for how to do so in 2016 Excel for Mac.

My hang-up is editing the format of the comment in order to allow me to insert the picture. There is no "Comment Format > Colors and Lines > Color Drop-down > Fill Effects > Picture" option on my end (which is the solution I found for Office 2011 Mac). The "comment format" for me is limited to "Font, Protection, Alignment, Properties" none of which has the solution, at least to my knowledge. I also, couldn't find anything under preferences that may have been turned off...

Can someone please walk me through this, or let me know if it's been removed from this update? I'm losing my mind. :)

Since this question was originally asked, Microsoft has explained that the comment feature is being re-designed.
There needs to be a way to change the default formatting for comment boxes

Unfortunately that solution is for the Windows version of excel. OP was asking about the Mac version, where that does not work.
