  • 5. Microsoft Clip Gallery 5.0
    This is a funny sort of question. I use Microsoft Clip Gallery 5 because it is the best clip art management tool I know that works with Microsoft applications.

My fear is that Clip Gallery will not work with the next versions of Windows and Office. What can I do to be ready for the next versions of Windows and Office but not loose all those great features? Is there another program I can use that has all these features? ...Tony

1.How do I edit a washout/watermark?

I have designated/formatted a clipart as a washout on one page of my Word 
document, behind a table. I would like to edit the washed out clipart and 
reposition it, but I can't because I can't gain access to it because it's 
behind the text. How can I gain access to the washout clipart to edit it?

Initially, I was able to change the clipart into a washout by placing it in 
the center of the table, selecting "washout" and formatted the picture to be 
placed behind the text.

I have Word 2003.

Any help will be appreciated.
