  • 1. Additional Testing
    I spent 2 hours on the phone with Adobe Acrobat support. They had me try every possible option under the sun and we were not able to resolve this issue. While on the phone, I realize that the PNG renders poor only if the graphic has transparency enabled. I asked the support technician to raise the ticket. He put me on hold and returned to say that it was raised, but they declared it a "bug" and suggested I upgrade to Acrobat 9. I did, but it has the same issue.

    I'd like all my inserted pictuers to have a blue border. Can I make that a default?
  • 3. Excel Graph in Word printing larger than it looks in print preview
    I have reports which I produce in MS Word with embedded bar charts. When I am updating a report with new information, I change the data in the Excel worksheet that defines the chart, and then when I return to editing in Word, everything looks fine on the screen. However, when I print - whether to an Adobe PDF document or directly to a printer, the information in the charts is blown up to about 125% of original size. Since the chart box prints in the original size, the content does not all show. How do I fix this?
  • 4. Excel graph refreshes too much
    I have many excel graphs included in a word document. Some excel graphs include lots of data. Everytime I move my mouse or try to type when this type of graph is on the screen, the graph has to refresh again and again and it's really annoying. Can I turn off graphic refresh or can I increase memory availability to solve this problem? Any help is appreciated.

    I want to make a picture that I have inserted from a rectangle into a parallelogram bounding picture, but I can't find any useful button/options to do that. Is this even supported? If so, where would I find this functionality?

When putting a graphic in a document, the box is sometimes way larger than 
the graphic.  How do I edit graphic box to make it fit the graphic?

If you're talking about a text box, you don't need one for a graphic, which
can have all the same wrapping options. But I suspect you're referring to
the "Drawing canvas." You can disable this on the General tab of Tools |
Options.

I'm not sure what that does, but I don't think that will help.  I paste a lot 
of pictures from web pages into documents to help me remember.  It is these 
pasted pictures that I was refering to.  If I could, I'd send you one so you 
could see.  However, I really do appreciate your effort!  It is so nice to 
actually get answers to questions.  My usuall word processing program is 
WordPerfect.  You can't find answers to questions for that software to save 
your soul!  Thanks again.

Although it is really easy to paste a graphic from a Web page, the
recommended procedure is to right-click on the graphic and use Save Picture
As. Save it to My Pictures or some other easily found location, then use
Insert | Picture | From File to put it in your document. I think you'll find
that this procedure will help.

In recent versions of Word, you'll find that pictures are inserted/pasted as
In Line With Text by default. If you want to be able to move them freely,
and have text wrap around them, you need to change the wrapping to some
other style. When you click on the picture, the Picture toolbar will be
displayed. Click on the Text Wrapping button (dog icon) to get a menu of
wrapping options.

Sounds like a good idea.  I'll try that next time.

1.text box that automatically makes a graphic/design box

Hi,
I'm working in Word 2003 PC.  Anyone know why when I draw 
a text box a graphic/design box comes up then the text 
box goes in it.

Appreciate if I knew how to stop that.

thank you!!! ahead of time for your help,

2.Replacement size when pasting graphic image on graphic image

In Word 2000, when copying a graphic to the clipboard and then pasting over 
an existing graphic, the newly pasted graphic would automatically resize 
itself to the original shape.  In the new Word 2003, the new graphic has to 
be resized after pasting.  Is there a way to set this back to the old default 
where it will automatically resize itself?  Your advice is appreciated.

3.Editing a hyperlinked graphic changes its size

I have a document with many in-line graphics hyperlinked to separate files. 
The graphics sizes are automatically reducing when I edit the hyperlinks.
The document was prepared in Word, then saved as a filtered web page, then 
saved again as a Word dcoument via File>Edit with Word in Internet Explorer.
In Word 2003/Windows XP am changing the hyperlinks to point to a place in 
the same document, using right click>Edit Hyperlink. After changing the 
hyperlink and clicking OK in Edit Hyperlink dialog box, the graphic is 
automatically reduced to about 39% of its height and 27% of its width. I get 
the same result if I remove the hyperlink then create the link afresh.
Why is this, and how can I edit all the hyperlinks without having to redo 
all graphics sizes?

4.Ungrouping a SmartArt Graphic/ changing text box size

Is there anyway to ungroup a SmartArt graphic? I need to add significant 
amount of text in each text box, adjusting the size of each box to 
accommodate it. This causes all other text boxes to change sizes and move 
around, seemingly irrationally. It becomes an endless back and forth until 
everything is aligned correctly-- extraordinarily frustrating and not 
particularly usable. Ideally I would like to use the format and then ungroup 
the graphic so I can move and adjust easily. Is there anyway to do this??!!

5.Move a graphic that has gray sizing boxes?

I have a graphic that I am unable to move around. In place of the normal 
white sizing boxes of an active graphic it has gray boxes (never seen these 
before). I've tried all the normal means of changing its Format Picture & 
Layout and selecting In Front of Text, but it still can't be dragged to a new 
location. If I try to cut the graphic and place it somewhere else it locks up 
Word and I need to use the Task Manager to stop word.

Any suggestions?
