    Hello, is there any chance someone has stencils, templates for mapping out golf holes? Yes, I'm serious...if not please be polite! Kind regards. Peter (Keen but novice Visio user).
  • 2. Football Playbook
    I had an old copy of Visio Home. It included a template for creating a football playbook. I coach young kids, and they loved having a "real" playbook. Is there a template somewhere for Visio Pro? I just got this and don't know where to look. Thanks.

Colors lost when pasting into Word

Postby Derek » Thu, 13 Nov 2003 03:28:07 GMT

When I paste a Visio 2000 drawing into word, I loose the 
fill colors.  I have read the MS articles (292817 & 
305331) dealing with this. These are not acceptable 
solutions to me because 1) I don't want the entire 
drawing and 2) the resolution of the GIF files created is 
poor.  After researching this, I have found that this 
only happens when I select custom colors. 

Does anyone know if this is fixed in later version of 
Visio or have more standard colors at least been added?

1.excel fonts lose color when pasted in Word?

My excel fonts lose their color when I import a table into Word as a picture? 
 The fonts maintain their color when I paste as a bitmap but that does not 
look as crisp as a picture paste.  Both Word and Excel are ver. 2003 with the 
SP3 pack installed.  This just started happending - I've been using this 
method for years!  What the heck?

4.Excel graph losing background color when copied into word


I'm trying to paste several graphs from excell to word. The graphs have a 
yellow (thus not-default) background color. I'm doing this for quite some 
time, but the last few months the background color just dissapears when I 
paste the picture (doesn't matter wether I paste as metafile, bitmap, or any 
format and no difference between vba-paste and manual).

Does anyone know what is up? (oh using office 2003 on win xp system). Would 
be great to finaly solve this problem that I posted in other fora before, but 
never got an answer.

All the best, Jaap

5.Losing color on a excel chart in a word document

When I import and link an Excel chart, the chart appears 
correct including colors.  When I print the Word document 
the chart colors change and are not "true".  In fact they 
are much darker.  When I print the chart from Excel, it 
prints fine.  Any ideas?  Thanks.
