  • 1. Preserving formatting after updating links in Word
    I have a Word doc that includes several links to tables in an Excel doc. The doc was created by someone else. When I view the list of links in Word, I see a section in the Links dialog box towards the bottom titled "Options for selected link" with two selections below - one of which is "Preserve formatting after update". This option is ghosted-out ,but is checked for some of the links in my list and unchecked for others. When I update the links, the tables in my Word doc that are associated with the links that have this option un-checked always change size (i.e. formatting is NOT being preserved after I update), but the charts that are associated with the links that have this option checked stay the way I want them to. I cannot figure out how to insert a linked Excel chart and get this option turned on. Does anybody know how? Thanks in advance for your help.

How to I add a color to the color pull-down

Postby S2Vsdmlu » Fri, 13 Feb 2009 10:55:02 GMT

I just upgraded to Office 2007.  In Word 2003 when I clicked the color 
pull-down, I got 40 colors to choose from.  Pink was second from the bottom 
on the left.  I've used it in many of my documents and would like to continue 
using it.

In Word 2007, when I click the color pull-down I get Theme Colors and 
Standard Colors.  With the default theme, pink is not listed.  I would like 
to be able to choose pink from the pull-down.  I've found how to get to it 
from More Colors.  Once I add it, it shows up under Recent Colors.  However, 
that gets cleared out fairly often.

I've found how to create a custom theme, and make that my default.  As I 
read about themes, it sounds like these colors are already used for things 
and if I change them, it may impact other things.  I don't really want to 
change the theme (but will if needed).  

I would just like to change my Standard Colors, so pink is listed there.  Or 
make it so Recent Colors always shows up, and pink is listed there.  Is there 
any way to do this?  If not, is there anything closer than creating a custom 
theme and then using that in all documents?  

Finally, if I need to go the custom theme route, how do I apply that theme 
to all of my Word documents?  If I set it as my default theme, it will show 
up in new documents, but it doesn't seem to effect existing documents.

Thanks for your help!!
