Common Bug - black lines around inserted image after saving. solut

Hi, 

Im running word 2007 on windows 7 ultimate.

When an image is inserted into a document and is larger than the current
page it is automatically reduced in size to fit the page. Save the document, 
close it, reopen it and there will
be unwanted black lines on the top and left hand edge of the image (like a
black border on those sides). I think it is the auto resizing that causes it.

If you search google there are a bunch of people with the same problem
although i didnt find anyone identify it as due to the auto resizing.
e.g.
http://msgroups.net/microsoft.public.word.docmanagement/unwanted-border-appear-on-2-sides-of-inserted-pictures
http://www.msofficeforums.com/word/2946-line-appearing-over-left-top-image-when-saving.html
http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/35560522/mysterious-border-around.aspx

Does anyone know how to stop this bug? it appears to be pretty common yet i 
cant find a solution on google.

I am trying to find the option to stop word from automatically reducing the
size of an inserted image that is too big for the page... does anyone know
how i can turn off this feature??

thanks

Hi again

I found a 'work around'.  If I crop the image slightly, within Word, the 
lines on the top and left of the graphic disappear - even after a save!

Also, I notice that the lines only occurred on graphics within tables.  The 
same graphic on a blank page (no table), did not have the lines on the top 
and left.

My lines occur on objects inserted outside tables also on a brand new blank 
document.

This is a really annoying bug.  I cant crop my images there is text too 
close to the borders that it adds unfortunately.

Im just going to do some more testing now.

I found a solution! Save the document as .doc and not as .docX. Then you do'nt have those terrible unwanted lines after you saved the document. 
If you already have the lines, re-insert the picture first before you save it as a .doc.

hope this works for everyone! And spread the word, apparantly many people have that problem

This is an annoying, unresolved bug of Word 07. Shame on you Microsoft.

I've managed to figure out that images become messed up whenever Word rescales them (i.e. too high resolution/size) while saving the document for the first time after importing the images. For some reason the borders appear in the process.

There is an easy workaround to fix it:
1. change the extension of your file from .docx to.zip
2. open the .zip file and go to \word\media subfolder
3. find and replace the messed up images
4. change the file extension back to .docx

Fixed images will stay fine, even if you keep resaving the file. But it's still just a workaround and can be tedious with many images.

black border on those sides). I think it is the auto resizing that causes it.

If you search google there are a bunch of people with the same problem
although i didnt find anyone identify it as due to the auto resizing.
e.g.
http://msgroups.net/microsoft.public.word.docmanagement/unwanted-border-appear-on-2-sides-of-inserted-pictures
http://www.msofficeforums.com/word/2946-line-appearing-over-left-top-image-when-saving.html
http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/35560522/mysterious-border-around.aspx

Does anyone know how to stop this bug? it appears to be pretty common yet i
cant find a solution on google.

I am trying to find the option to stop word from automatically reducing the
size of an inserted image that is too big for the page... does anyone know
how i can turn off this feature??

thanks

Hi again

I found a 'work around'.  If I crop the image slightly, within Word, the
lines on the top and left of the graphic disappear - even after a save!

Also, I notice that the lines only occurred on graphics within tables.  The
same graphic on a blank page (no table), did not have the lines on the top
and left.

This is a really annoying bug.  I cant crop my images there is text too
close to the borders that it adds unfortunately.

Im just going to do some more testing now.

I found a solution! Save the document as .doc and not as .docX. Then you do'nt have those terrible unwanted lines after you saved the document.
If you already have the lines, re-insert the picture first before you save it as a .doc.

hope this works for everyone! And spread the word, apparantly many people have that problem

black lines around inserted image: workaround
This is an annoying, unresolved bug of Word 07. Shame on you Microsoft.

I've managed to figure out that images become messed up whenever Word rescales them (i.e. too high resolution/size) while saving the document for the first time after importing the images. For some reason the borders appear in the process.

There is an easy workaround to fix it:
1. change the extension of your file from .docx to.zip
2. open the .zip file and go to \word\media subfolder
3. find and replace the messed up images
4. change the file extension back to .docx

Fixed images will stay fine, even if you keep resaving the file. But it's still just a workaround and can be tedious with many images.

In order to keep doc files to a minimum size, I always edit graphics to size 
and resolution in an external graphics editor before Inserting them into 
Word. My favourite graphics engine is IrfanView: it is a quick free download 
and is very lightweight using few resources. It supports conversion between 
over 100 formats too. Word is a word processor that tries to do too much 
because customers demand it. Once, a Word processor, Desktop Publisher and 
Graphics editor were clearly defined applications: that has now blurred with 
application trying to do too much just so so.

M2004 Won't Save Customized Toolbars / Home Page
Unable to find anything in archives or the UFAQ on this... My Money 2004 file recently stopped saving customized toolbars / home page. Any changes I make don't "stick". I've used super salvage, which supposedly found and corrected some errors, but the problem persists. Any ideas? Thanks. Try this (and it is in the UFAQ under a less specific topic at http://umpmfaq.info/faqdb.php?q=153). Stop Money Express. Change your toolbar stuff. Exit Money. Restart Money. Restart Money Express.

Saving MY Calendar into "Publication-Calendar"
My problem is that I have to make a certain type of calendar in every month.

Save custom formats independantly of workbooks?

How to prevent line breaks in XML file?
I am creating XML from SQL2000 using a vb.net page, then posting it to a remote server as a string. The remote server requires that the xml contain no line breaks, but there are some ntext fields in the database that contain long text with line breaks. How do I get rid of the line breaks?
