Cut/Paste graphics & text from Powerpoint to Word

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Processor: Intel

I'm using Microsoft Office 2008 on my MacBook Pro.  I've been trying to cut-n-paste a drawing with text from PowerPoint directly into a Word document, but the text is always fuzzier than the same text in the rest of the Word document - probably because it always ports over as a picture. <br><br>This strikes me as crazy, given that Office is supposed to be a fully integrated app.  Any suggestions on how to resolve this problem? <br><br>Bill Reckmeyer

Hi Bill;

I'm a afraid I can't offer a solution because there simply isn't enough 
detail about this "drawing with text"... we need to now just about 
everything about it from start to finish in order to answer effectively.

One point to clarify, though, is that Office is absolutely not "a fully 
integrated app". It is a suite of individual, standalone programs which are 
designed to interact with & complement each other. They do share some common 
'applets' but each program implements those features in somewhat different

Linked graphics into a Publisher 2000 document
I have a 400KB document (withgout graphics). I insert two JPEG images each around 200KB into the document. I figure the resulting document should be around 700KB. Result? An 11MB file. I delete the images (document is now 400KB) and instead insert the images using the "Link to File" option. Graphics Manager confirms that the images are linbked into the file. The size should not be more than 500KB. Result? An 11MB file. Question is how can I insert images into a Publisher 2000 documentr without the file blowing up? And why does it blow up?

Sorting Alphanumeric values in a text field
I'm using Access 2003 for a database for my company. I have a field in a table that has both text and numbers. They are part numbers, for example 21BC124. I kept the field as text because of the text with in the numbers and didn't figure that a numeric field would alow the text. In my part numbers table it sorts correctly (first by number then by letter then by number again), but in my reports and queries there are a few number that sort in the wrong place. Like this... 20D10-3 21BC123 21BC128 22D10 25TD47 21FA101 21FA200 25FA203 38FA601 21FP604 38WS100 I can't quite f...

Macros for worksheet copy & paste?
I have 6 different excel files. How can I combine all 6 of them in one single excel file under individual worksheets (E.g. Worksheet1 for File1, worksheet2 for File2 ....etc)? I do not wish to copy & paste it manually. Can I use a macro to take care of it? If so, where can I find further info on how to go about it? THANKS!! Assuming (1) this is a one-time need, and (2) your workbooks have only one sheet each, this would probably be faster done by hand: 1) With all the files open choose one of the files to be the receiving file. 2) Select the sheet in the subsequent books, one at...

How can I wrap text across merged cells?
I'm using Excel 2000. I have a set of merged cells A5- E5. I have several lines of text in the cells and I want them to wrap across the merged cells and it is not working. All I get is the first line of text showing and the rest is cut off. It works if the cells are not merged, but I really need to do it in my merged cells. Is there a way to this other than manually resizing the height of the row? Instead of merging cells, have you tried the "Center Across Selection" option ? The appearence is just about identical to what you would get using merged cells, although I d...

preview text disappears when email is opened
When someone responds to an my email, I can see what they have typed - until I open the message - then only my original message is viewable.

If I mark it as unread it does not return to the previous state.

Fewer normal template problems with Word 2000 or 2002?
I have enjoyed some things about Word 2007, but I keep having problems with macros and templates. I am wondering if (a) macros increase the likelihood of corrupting the normal template in 2007, or (b) if the older versions of Word had as many template problems. I have used Word in 2000, with Office 2003, and now with Office 2007 and I don't ever recall having as many problems as I've had with 2007. What I'm thinking is that if it is simply a macro problem causing corruption, I would simply use 2007 without the macros (they're nice but I can live without them). On the...

Nested Styles in Word 2003?
Is it possible to create a nested style in Word 2003? An example would be to make the first sentence of a paragraph Body Text bold but the rest of the paragraph plain Body Text. I have used this type of style with Adobe InDesign but haven't found a way to make it work in Word. It's not a big issue for me as I have used character formatting over the Body Text style where appropriate but I am curious. Word can do this, but not with "nested styles" (there is no such concept in Word). Instead, there is a way to apply a style to only part of a paragraph. See http://...

Unicode "private use" glyphs in Powerpoint and Word 2008 #2
Office on Leopard 10.5.2, all updates applied to both. A friend is migrating from Windows to Mac, and has come across something that we're trying to work around. He has some .ppt files with font glyphs in from a Unicode .ttf font (a specific purpose font for showing the LCD display characters on a piece of monitoring equipment). When we bring the font and .ppt over to the Mac, the glyphs from the normal ASCII range come over into Powerpoint 2008 fine, but the glyphs from the "private use" range from F000 upwards a way don't transfer. In Powerpoint they show as spac...

Copy/Paste formulas
How do I keep certain cells (those I want to point to a specific 'constant') from incrementing while the remaing cells in my formulas increment as expected. Example: ((E65)*(COUNTIF(I7:I7,"V"))) where the cell "E65" contains a set value that I want to be placed in the result as I step down the incremental (I) rows when the character "V" is found in the particular (I) row. When I do my copy and paste, the (E) row increments as the (I) rows increment. $E$65 "BobG" wrote: > How do I keep certain cells (those I want to point to a specific...

Right Click Safari 404 and paste into Word 2008 only showing address
Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) Processor: Intel Example. I open Right click on the Gmail logo to &quot;copy image&quot; not the &quot;copy image address&quot; option. Then, I open Word 2008 and paste. All I get is the address, not the logo image. If I repeat and use Text Edit (Apple) instead, it works as expected. Is this a bug with Word? Or am I missing a preference setting here set up by default that needs adjusted? Apparently it has to do with how Safari populates the Clipboard � I have no problem pasting the logo with F...

How do I break a large word document into smaller components?

Prevent Hidden Column data from being copied/pasted?
A student came up with a question that I haven't been able to figure out yet in a recent Excel class. They are hiding a column and protecting the worksheet in the correct manner. They want to allow some users to access and enter information in some cells. They do not want the users to be able to copy and paste the information from the hidden column. The question is how can this be prevented? For example, Column B is hidden. When they copy a range such as A1:C10 and paste it to another worksheet, they are getting the "hidden" data in Column B in B1:B10. Any suggestions wou...
