  • 1. PNG graphic in Word - white prints as very pale grey
    If I insert PNG graphic in Word (I've tried W97 & W2003), white (RGB all equal to 255) gets converted to very pale grey (RGB all equal to 254) when I print the document on my laser printer. JPEG and GIF don't have this problem. Any suggestions of what I can do to make white really white with a PNG. The original PNG that I inserted into Word definitely had true white (RGB all equal to 255) in it. If I do a screen capture of the Word document and analyse it in my photo editing programme (Paintshop Pro), white is correct (RGB all equal to 255). If I convert it to Acrobat and analyse the screen capture, white becomes very pale grey (RGB all equal to 254). So it appears to be a printing problem (since Word does a 'print' to produce an Acrobat document.
  • 2. Picture Compression/Cropping Problem in 2003
    When editing (.jpg) pictures in Word 2003 I can easily crop to the desired content. Images look fine and print okay. But when using the compress image option and deleting cropped areas, they are not deleted and simply reappear, thereby distorting the image. This also happens when 2003 .doc files (which look fine in 2003) are opened in XP or 2000 - the original (uncropped) images are shown distorted. Anyone know what is causing this/how to fix this ? Thanks !
  • 3. Sizing Text Box Word 97
    Before when I inserted a text box I used to be able to click on it to drag and change the size. I can no longer do it that way. When I click on it it automatically enlarges to 5 x 5. I have to format the text box, select the size tab and enter dimensions to have any control over the size I want to make it. I would like to get back the click and drag option. Thank you for your help

Does anyone know where a download of "Harvey Balls" 
(balls with 1/4 - 1/2 - 3/4 shading)can be found.  I have 
them as pictures, but the color cannot be changed and 
they are on a square background which cannot be changed.I 
have checked all items on the symbols menu and they are 
not there.

Thanks for any help anyone can give.

I should think these would be pretty easy to create using the drawing tools.
Insert a circle AutoShape with No Fill and the desired line color. Then use
the Arc AutoShape to drag a circular arc the same size and the desired
angle; when you fill it with a color, it will fill the   or that you
drew. Align and group the two objects. Save as an AutoText entry.

Hi G.,

To add to Suzanne's reply, here are a couple of
additional possibilities that may work for you.


You can download the set of Harvey Ball graphics
from this website as one option.
     http://www.**--****.com/ 

You may also be able to use a dingbat font, such as
'Pie Charts' from   http://www.**--****.com/ 

You can also use Insert=>Picture=>Chart and use
a pie chart with two values/two colors to create
the 'ball' fill that you want.

1.Frequent 'beach-ball' effect in Word & Entourage-& Snafu Using Project Center

2.I am permanently getting the spinning ball......

Using Word for Mac 2008, almost everything I do results in the spinning ball, Word appears to freeze for two minutes or so, then the ball disappears and everything returns to normal.

This happens when first saving any document for the first after opening the application, pasting text from Word into another program, opening the print dialogue...... It is most annoying.

Does anyone have any idea whether this is an Office bug or a Mac bug??

4.Word and excel constantly giving me 10 - 30 seconds spinning beach balls

Leopard 10.5.4, Word 12.1.2 (2008), 4 GB, fairly new machine 2.6GHz
Intel.   Just doing simple things like selecting menus, copy small
amounts of text, going from one word document to another word
document, I am constantly getting a spinning beach ball that lasts 10
- 30 seconds.  This seems to happen in both Word and Excel.  What
gives?   I tried Excel 2004 and did not have this problem at all with
the same document.

5.roller ball problem in Word

I just upgraded to Word 2004 and have a strange problem: when I use the
roller ball on my mighty mouse, the page frequently doesn't scroll
properly and freezes momentarily.  But it remembers so you can scroll,
and then click, and it will catch up scroll for however much you
scrolled while it was frozen.

It is specific to Word and doesn't occur in Excel or any of the Mac
programs.  It didn't happen with Office X.  My computer has plently of
memory, speed etc, so I doubt it is that either.

Any suggestions?
