delete duplicate clip art images in Microsoft Clip Gallery



  • 1. Moving picture changes anchor?
    I do the following in my Word 2003 VBA code: dim anch as range activedocument.bookmarks("Start").Select set anch = selection.range addpicture(pic, false, true, 0, 0, 100, 100, anch) (the bookmark is inside a tablecell) When I check the left and top properties of the shape (the picture) they are both 0(as I would expect). RelativeHorizontalPosition and RelativeVerticalPosition are both wdRelative.....PositionColumn. But if I move the upper left corner of the picture to the lower right corner of the original picture position I thought I should have left = 100 and top = 100. But Left is 288 and top 99. Why? Is there any way I can have Left and Top remain relative to the anchor?
  • 2. Text boxes are automatically linking in word
    When I am embedding figures into a word document, when I add text boxes, they automatically duplicate or link to other previously created text boxes. when I delete the new one, all prior ones delete as well. However, there is no actual link to break (when I check in the control panel)

delete duplicate clip art images in Microsoft Clip Gallery

I have downloaded many images (from the MS site) into Word 97's Clip Gallery. 
Unfortunately, I've discovered that a lot of the clips were actually 
duplicates of already-existing clips. As a result, the Clip Gallery takes 
about 90 seconds to load, and it's driving me bonkers!

How can I EFFICIENTLY remove the duplicate clips from the Gallery?

In the catalog, right-click any image, click "recover", this will compact the Gallery 
and it will open faster. Open the folder where the clipart is stored, any clip that 
has a bracketed number (2) will be a duplicate most times, you can delete them.

1.Clip gallery user database failed to open when trying to insert clip art

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
Processor: Intel

I have a teacher that gets the message "Clip gallery user database failed to open" every time she tries to insert clip art in Word or PowerPoint. I have already tried to trash the preferences (and empty the trash) for the clip gallery in the user's library and I have tried repairing her permissions. If logged in as another user, the clip gallery works fine.

This is driving me CRAZY and I really need to move on to other support issues. Please help!

2."no clips" displayed in clip art gallery for specific user

Version: 2004
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger)

Hoping some one can help,

When logged in as a specific user, when trying to insert clip art, there are listed categories, however there are no clips displayed?

There seems to be no issues when other users log in.

The specific user account is a generic account that multiple users log in with and occurs on both intel and powerpc machines.

If any more information is needed please let me know.


3.Clip art gallery Word cannot access clip catalog, have restarted

Clip art gallery will not open.  Get message stating that clip art gallery

into my document.  Help? do I add clip gallery 5.0 clip art to word 2003

gallery from office 2000. How do I add that clip art to the Office 2003 clip 
art without adding each clip individually?
bblibrary clip gallery 3.0 clips disappeared

Can someone please help me try to figure this out?

I'm using Win2000 on a pentium 5, running microsoft office 97.

Suddenly all the clips I downloaded and painstakingly categorized are
now GONE!
What happened? 

I had my clips located in a few places..
why does it need so many different places???

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Downloaded

After I download a bunch of clips and install them, may I then delete
the downloaded file?
Do the clips in the downloaded files get "installed anywhere"?

How does this usually work?

Thanks, New
