  • 1. Faxing in word
    Hi I have upgraded to OS 10.3 and I cannot use the fax feature in Word. I choose fax from the print dialogue and when I access the address book I can see may addresses but I cannot select one. I have no problem faxing from AppleWorks. Has anyone figured out how to get it to work or is this " a problem to be fixed at a later date"? Thanks Dave
  • 2. inserting a movie into a Word web page
    Can anyone tell me why "movie" is not in the "Insert" menu when I am working on a document as a web page. Word help clearly reads that when insertin a movie into a web page, first save the doc as a web page, and then click on 'insert>movie' and specify properties. All I want to do is have a web page play one of my movies. Did I not install something? Is anyone else having this problem? Is it a bug? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

  • 4. custom stationary
    Does anyone know if it is possible to import a logo/arwork into a custom Word template? If so, what file formats are supported?
  • 5. Word will only print up to 13 pages.
    Whenever I try to print a large document, it will not print past 13 pages. If I use the "to" print option (ex. 13 to 30), it still will not print the pages. I am running OS 10.2 and Office X. I ran the remove program and reinstalled, hopeing it would reset the extensions and fix the problem, but had no luck. Would be gratefull for any help.

Visio imbedded objects not showing correctly in Word 2008

Hi Guys

I have to say I am really disappointed with this issue I have encountered. I kind of expected MS to get compatibility issues right when it came to other MS Products. At the moment, I have files created by my colleagues in Office 2007 with imbedded Visio graphics. Unfortunately at the moment I am forced to view them in Office 2007 under Parallels because Word 2008 won't display the Visio graphics. Any idea when this type of issue is expected to be resolved?

Hello -

I can't give you any "good" news but you may want to review this thread on
the subject. As you'll see it isn't so much an Office issue as it is a
Mac/Visio issue:

2.Can't print Word doc w/embedded Visio object correctly

When I print Word doc with Visio object embedded in it, only the upper left 
ccorner of the Visio object, greatly magnified, prints. Sometimes unselecting 
'Lock Aspect Ratio' on 'Size' tab of 'Format Object' dialog box fixes it and 
sometimes cutting and repasting the object fixes it. It doesn't matter what 
size the Visio object is nor does scaling the size of the object. Print 
preview always looks correct.

5.VISIO if i insert an object (word or excel file) the icon not show

Working in Visio - I have a document which I set up.  It is a process 
document linking to word and excel procedure documents showing the 
application icon and the filename, I did this by inserting an object and 
linking to that file and displaying the file as an icon.

Now I am working on the same document from a different PC and I am unable to 
insert an object and show the icon no matter what I do it will not allow it.  
I have built a word, and an excel icon and added to shapes within a new 
stencil in Visio but I cannot group this to the inserted file because it then 
will not allow the file to open. ????????
