Please can someone explain how I can view the changes I make to a publication 
"live" without having to keep going to print preview. I can see changes to 
text but nothing else i.e colour of background, textures and shape colour and 
lines.

I followed your advice, I went to view>pictures>detailed view. I then went 
to display properties from the control panal and followed thus 
Settings>Advanced>Troubleshoot. and moved the hardware acceleration slider 
down three notches. I opened up Publisher 2007 and tried again, unfortunately 
it has made no difference. The only changes I can see are those to the text 
but nothing else.

You should go to the manufacturer's web site and look around for an upgraded 
video driver regardless.
Are all your publications experiencing this problem? Have you tried Office 
Diagnostics?
Open your file in safe mode, can you see the images?

why does sorting change a scatter plot graph?
Why does the way a spread sheet is sorted change the look of a scatter plot graph??? the graph is just a plot of two points, (X, Y) and these two points are definded by two collumns for a given row.

Printing In Color
Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) I am trying to print a document in word that is color but it is only coming out in black and white. How can I change the color settings on my printer? Word has no setting to print in color v. B/W -- that's a function of your printer & its driver software. The settings are available in the Print dialog in the Copies & Pages List, but exactly where the setting is located depends to a great extent on what printer you have. Some printers also have physical controls on the printer, itself, but that isn't common. ...

Change the text of a shape rather than its master
Hi, I build custom masters by mixing two general shapes, say square and circle together, and have text on both the shapes. But after I drop an instance of the master into a page, I cannot modify the text of the instance. To do so, I need to modify the text on the master, which is non-sense for me. How to change the text of a shape without modifying its master? Thanks! How are you doing this? By code or by the UI? Are you grouping the shapes? If you drag two shapes to the stencil, it will group the shapes. So instead of a square and a circle you have three shapes. A Square, Circle and the...
