I need to to know how to insert images for each document page, then type over the background images, like a simple cookbook. PLEASE tell me scrivener 2 can handle this VERY fundamental function.
This is not a fundamental function for software designed for creating text, not for creating page layouts. Scrivener 2 can’t, I don’t suppose Scrivener 3 will be able to either. If that’s what you want to do use Word, or perhaps Pages can do it, but your best bet is In Design, Quark Express, Scribus or similar page-make-up applications.
Just a Scrivener user.
