  • 2. Drag / Drop not working in MS word
    Dear all I am having a hell of a time with dragging and dropping an MS word document into another word document. I was initially able to do this successfully however lately this is not possible. When I drop a file into a fresh document, the content of the file gets pasted in rather than an OLE - attachment. I can go to tools and insert object manually and then display the object as an icon, however it was much easier just dragging and dropping. When I use the right click and drag into new cocument, i get the option to copy or move, however the content is pasted and not the object as an icon. I have searched everywhere for reg hacks and settings but come no no success. Can anyone help. Kind regards Musa

    Hi. Having lost some pics in a data disaster, I had a backup file of a Word 2003 document with the pics in it. I don't see a way to re-save the pics... essentially get them back out of the doc. Any insights? suggestions? thanks

Smart Art issues

Postby VGluYSBHYXNwYXJk » Sat, 27 Oct 2007 05:02:36 GMT

I've been trying to create an organizational chart using the labeled 
hierarchy style. It has been giving me fits. The autofit feature (which is 
apparently turned on and I'm not allowed to disable) insists on only resizing 
horizontally, not vertically, which means that any adjustments just makes 
everything else smaller and I am unable to make fonts or shapes larger. Also, 
one small change further down the hierarchy resizes everything above it in a 
disproportionately large way.

Any ideas?

1.Smart Art saving issue

We are using Word 2007, SmartArt, with our elementary school students. 
Initially they are being able to save their files fine, however, subsequent 
saves get the error message "Word can't complete the save due to file 
permission error". We can rename the file and it's fine, but what would be 
causing the error in the first place? SmartArt seems to be the only constant. 
No problems with any other files.

2.2007 Issue: Smart Art uneditable : Is this correct

I had a 1 page doc in 2003 that was put into a document in 2007 and it BECAME 
I guess a "smart art" or picture that was uneditable.  How can this text 
pages be edited?  What I mean is it when you click on it, it has a picture 
box around it and the picture menu pops up from the 2007 icons.

4.Centering Smart Art

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: intel

Is there a way to center SmartArt between the margins? I've looked everywhere I can think of, but nothing wants to make the whole SmartArt object center on the margins.

5.Editing Smart Art Graphics

I had the same problem when I saved the document as a .doc, which is the old file format. You need to save as docx. I think Word seals off the SmartArt functionality and treats it only as a picture after the save.

Unfortunately, even after re-saving the file as docx, I couldn't unlock the srmartart functionality, which Word now treats as a picture. SO you have to start again and save the file as docx from the start.

At least these were my findings... :-(
