• 1. Creating a jpg or gif from a word doc
    How do you convert an image created in a word document to its own gif or jpg file?
  • 2. Clip art won't show on screen. Used to be no problem.
    Microsoft Word. Have always been able to import clip art, pictures, etc. Just place them on screen and no problem. Now all I get is blank box outlined in black. NONE of the help that I find in Microsoft Word even addresses this. Makes it sound as if you just place picture right in. I use paste special and put in as bitmaps no use. Help says I should see AutShape, Drawing Canvas, or Picture on Format menu--they are not there and I cannot find out why. This did not used to be a problem, what's happened?

    Thank you and I am an idiot. New system, things look different. I guess I always did fill in my tables with Borders and Shading. I just checked the old system, and it is just my memory that is failing, not MS Word.

Microsoft Word 2002 Equation 3.0 editor does NOT work like 
the Microsoft Word 2000 Equation editor.  Are there any 
patches to fix the things that weren't broken but now are?

I tried (along with numberous Word experts) to type a 
certain type of equation and it won't work.  Works just 
fine and dandy on Word 2000 but not on the 2002.  


Thanks for any advice you can give me.

I believe the version of Equation Editor is the same in both Word 2000 and
Word 2002. What are you unable to do in Word 2002?

Colleen, the 2 Equation Editors are essentially the same.

Please be more specific than "it won't work". I'll try to help,
but I need more information -- as much as you can give.

2.Equation Editor in Word 2008: Blurry, Pixilated Equations?

As a student who writes a lot of equations, this is a very annoying issue for me. I don't know if there is something I need to do to fix it, but I am confused.

When I insert an equation via equation editor, it looks fine. However, if I save my document and re-open it, all my equations are pixilated like a low-res image. If I double click the equation to edit it, and then close equation editor, the equations go back to normal again - however, it gets lost again any time I exit and restart Word.

This is not a major annoyance with only a few equations, but as someone like me who has upwards of 20 equations in their paper, this is a major problem.

Is there any way to make sure Word keeps the equations clear and doesn't make them all fuzzy? It's a pain to go through every equation to make them not blurry after every time I reopen my document.

5.MS Word equation editor won't open when double-clicking on an equation

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

I created a document (.docx) using the Office 2008 version of MS Word some time ago (2 months or so). Recently I wanted to correct an equation in that document and re-opened the document (on the same system and with the "same" copy of Word) and attempted to double-click the equation to edit it. Instead of the equation editor I get the "Format Picture" dialog box. In the interim I did install an update (I tend to try to stay up to date) and am at 12.2.4 (100205). <br><br>The application will let me create new equations just fine. How can I get my document back to an editable state?
