How do I soften edges of picture
I have inserted a picture into an auto shape and I want to soften the edges
of the picture so it "fades" out around the edges. I could do that in my
"Printshop" program very easily but can't seem to do it in Publisher. Please

Prin...dependent drop down list
I know that you can create a list (i.e. Produce - Fruits, Vegetables, etc.)
and then a dependent list (i.e. Fruits -Apples, Oranges, etc.). But you have
to use two columns. For example, column A is data validated for the Produce
list and you choose Fruit. Then column B is data validated for the dependent
lists where you can choose Apple.
Is there anyway to do this without the use of column B and have everything
on column A? So basically, in column A, you would put your cursor over Fruit
in the drop down list and then a second drop down list would appear to the
right side...Creating drop down list for multiple cell ranges

I wrote awhile ago, but it appears that my question did not make it through
for some reason, so I'll restate it: I've used Publisher for many, many
years, so this is not a matter of being new to it. I am using (as I have
hundreds of times before) the catalog template so I can print four 8 1/2 x 5"
pages on one 8 1/2 x 11" landscape paper. The booklet has a large number of
pages, but it IS divisible by 4. If I delete one page, I delete 3 more to
keep the 4 evenly divisible. Yet when I, for instance, cut out a textbox and

I'm really sorry if this has been answered, but I need some help. I just
started using MS Project last week, and I need to create a drop-down menu in
a text field (in other words, I need for users of our schedule to only be
able to select certain answers to a question so that we can then sort and
report on those standardized answers). Is this possible? If so, please give
me STEP-BY-STEP directions since I'm so new to this product. If it's not
possible, is there a workaround?
Insert the text field, say Text1, anywhere into the Entry Table.

Using Win XP Office XP
I have a data validation drop down list that contains
names of chemical compounds. In the source list I have
these names formatted using subscript:
SO2 - 2 would be subscript
SO4 - 4 would be subscript
C4AF - 4 would be subscript
However the formatting is lost in the drop down. I can
always reformat after the selection is made but is there
any way that I can keep the subscript format *in the drop
down list itself* ?

...Some photos split in Publisher
Sometimes Publisher splits a picture - duplicating a strip of sky from the
top of the picture and adding it to the bottom. It's only seen during
printing - not on the work screen.
Have you gone to your printer's manufacturer's web site and looked around for an
updated driver? This isn't a Publisher issue.

How can I create a multiple (6)column drop-list, so when I make a selection
from the list in the far left (1st)column, the cells across the remaining
(5)columns will be populated. The drop-down list should be flexible to allow
additions and deletions, the third column in the drop-down list should allow
variable entries and blank cells. The data in each column can be text and
numerical. The list may contain several hundred rows, across the (5) columns.
As a starting point, see Debra Dalgleissh's Dependent Lists page at:
