  • 1. Can't read equations or picture inserts
    WinNT sp Office 2000 standar Word 2000 (9.0.3821 SR-1 Associate sent me a word doc with embedded picture and equation. The object boxes are drawn but the content appears to be empty. Sender claims to have created these objects in Word 2000 On the inserted picture object, selecting edit picture gives an apparently empty box On the inserted equation, selecting open or edit works and I can see the content, but closing does not make the equasion readable Can't find a relevant issue in technet or MS Word support Similar behavior on XP Pro, OfficeSP, word 200 Any ideas
  • 2. How to read pictures from a document and save to picture type file by the way of using VBA?

  • 3. How do I embed (rather than link) images when saving an HTML page as a Word Doc?
    I have an HTML page that has images. When I open it in Word (2000) to save it as a Word Doc, word is linking to the images rather than embedding them. Is there any configuration or other way to get Word to embed rather than link to the images?
  • 4. Using (Insert-Object) vs (Inserting-Picture-From File)
    I have a question concering methods for inserting a picture. Here are the details: I have 6 jpg graphics that are about 30kb each. When using the commands Insert-Object-Create from File, the Word file is almost 7MB. I checked the file size when checkin the properties. When using the traditional commands Insert-Picture-From File, the Word doc is about 300kb which is what I would have expected. What is the OLE method doing different? It seems to almost decompress the graphic file which requires a tremendous amount more. The pics even come is much larger in appearance when using this method as well. Just curious about the behind-the-scene differences between the two. Thanks

I really like the drawing tools in Word and am wondering if it is possible
to convert a Word 2003 drawing to a transparent .gif for use in a Web Page?

Thanks, Paul

Simple: Select the drawing object & copy it. Then use Edit|Paste Special and
choose the gif image type to create the gif image within the Word document.
You can then save the Word document as an HTML file, which will cause the
image to be saved to a separate file. Alternatively, having copied the image
in Word, simply paste it into a graphics program (eg Paint) and save as gif
from there.

Trying to overlay a transparent .GIF graphic overtop 
another graphic I've inserted into the Word2000 document.  
Once I've inserted it I resize and move to where I want it

Document and reopen it, the overlayed transparent .GIF no 
longer is visible.  I've tried changing the order but that 
does nothing.  Anyone have any ideas?
