  • 2. colour graphs printing in grayscale
    I have a document containing several bar graphs. All the bars are red but all have different patterns and shading. When I print only the bars that are solid red (no pattern or shading) print as red all the other bars print in greyscale. I have tried to print on two different printers, one inkjet and one color laser and have tried to print from two pc's. It looks right in print preview. I have also printed a document with blue charts with different patterns and shading and this prints fine. Many thanks in advance. Chris
  • 3. Adjusting the transparency of an embedded object/symbol.
    I have an object in my word document that I embedded. It's a symbol that I made transparent behind the text but I need to adjust the transparency in a lighter side so it will enable me to read my text. Please advise.
  • 4. Clearing History in ClipArt
    I am a computer teacher at an elementary school and had a student search for inappropriate clipart within Word. Is there a way to clear that history so that the words do not show up under the search field? Thanks.

In Word, an object must be in the drawing layer (wrapped, that is, with a
text wrapping style other than In Line With Text) in order to be rotated.
