  • 1. Convert a Word 2003 drawing to a transparent .gif ?
    Hello: I really like the drawing tools in Word and am wondering if it is possible to convert a Word 2003 drawing to a transparent .gif for use in a Web Page? Thanks, Paul
  • 2. Printing
    Hi. I made an elevation of a house using Microsoft Word. However, it wouldn't print. There's nothing wrong with Microsoft Word, since other documents could print... except the elevation. Is there a way to solve this?
  • 3. Font color change using toolbar
    There are two ways to change font color. First is to click Format/Font on the toolbar. Second is to establish button by Tools/Customize/Commands/Format/Font Color then click-and-hold, drag to toolbar and release. This establishes font-color- change button with down-pointing arrow which shows colors available if different color is wanted. But only sometimes. Some times I click on down-arrow and nothing happens until I use first method (Format/Font), after which down-arrow shows colors available like it should. Even when down-arrow is not working, font-color-change button will change highlighted text to whatever color is showing under button at the time. How to make down-arrow button work ALL the time?
  • 4. Equations open as pictures
    Some equation I created with Equation Editor now only open as pictures, while others work correctly. What happened?

Ok, It's been about 2-3 years since I bought my computer, which came with 
Internet Explorer and Microsoft Word. Now when I try to copy pictures from IE 
and paste them into Word, Word only displays a blank white box. Now this 
problem might sound as if it's with my Word, but there's more. When I right 
click a picture and select "Save picture as..." I am only given the option to 
save the file as a Bitmap (.bmp) or Art (.art) file, which I know should 
include a few more options such as gif or jpeg. To try and solve this, I 
emptied the temporary internet files, deleted all cookies, and literally 
followed all other advice suggested around here. Now in the past to get 
around my inability to copy directly from IE to Word, I pasted into Paint, 
re-copied the picture, and pasted it into Word. Now, not even that long 
process will work. I am extremely irritated and have no idea where to turn.

What you may not have done is specifically this: in Internet Options, on the
General tab, under Temporary Internet Files, click on Delete Files... and
answer yes. That should take care of the file format issue. As for Word,
make sure that "Picture placeholders" is not checked on the View tab of
Tools | Options.

1.Word 2004 will not start, crashes upon starting

While working on a document in Word 2004, it crashed.  The error
report utility popped up and asked if I would like to report the error
and then try to recover my document.  I said yes.  The error message
was sent and Word tried to restart.

Word 2004 is now crashing instantly every time I try to open it.  It
will not fully start up.  It crashes.  The error report utility sends
the error message and tries to restart Word.  It crashes again and the
cycle is repeated indefinitely.

Has anyone else seen this?

I've attached the error log.  I don't know how to read it but maybe
someone out there can help me interpret it.
