  • 1. How do I add a clip art border to a word document?
    I am trying to insert a clip art border surrounding a short story which I typed using Word. However, when I attempt to do this, I get either the border or the story. The blank section in the center of the selected border can't be typed into. I've tried to cut and paste, no luck. What good is the border if you cant use it as such? I am using Microsoft Word 2000 and running Windows XP home edition. Help!
  • 2. cascading text in MS WORD 2003 (XP)
    I am attempting to have a block of text taper down the page on both right and left; I need to know how to insert and flip triangle shapes without covering up the text in the document, so the text will appear to flow naturally along the hypoteneuse of the right triangle. All suggestions will be extremely welcome. -- Many thanks.
  • 3. How can I shrink down a word file that contains pictures for emai.
    I created a word document and then inserted 2 Jpg pictures. Each picture was shrunk down to around 200kb each with 96dpi. However, when I add these pictures, my documents becomes between 18000 - 23000kb. I would like to email this document but I am not sure what I am doing wrong or what I can do to reduce the size of my file.
  • 4. using ALT-arrows key to move graphics
    Using Word 2003 on Windows 2000. I'm new to Word 2003 and am wondering how to select graphics items and move them by small increments. I used to do this by selecting the graphic and then using ALT-arrows to reposition the graphic. With Word 2003, this doesn't seem to be working. Do I need to do something special to enable it? Thanks. Barbara
  • 5. Rotate or Eit a Clip Art Picture
    I have Word for Office XP and I would like to rotate a clip art image so it is vertical. When I select the image and arrow-over the rotate/flip option in the drawing toolbar, the rotate/flip option is unavailable and I cannot select it. I tried putting the image in a text box, but the same happens when I do that too. Then, I decided to try to edit the actual image. However, when I double-click on it, just the clip art gallery/organizer comes up - the image does not go into "edit" mode. Please help!

Pictures and drawings that I have inserted in previously created or newly 
created Word 03 documents don't appear on the screen after Acrobat 6.0 was 
installed.  They appear as blank spaces unless I click on themand move them a 
little.  When I leave the page and come back, they are invisible again.  They 
print O.K., and view O.K. on other computers.  I have folowed the "Help" 
suggestions to make sure that I am in print view, etc.  The only way I can 
work around the problem is to remove or rename the pdfmaker.dot file in the 
Office11 --> Startup folder, similar to article 820757.  Anyone else having 
this problem, and come up with a better solution?

Make sure that the "Picture placeholders" option is not checked on the View
tab of Tools | Options.

3.Acrobat 7 interfering with Word 03 normal.dot saves

I have recently had to reinstall Adobe Acrobat 7. In the past I have edited 
the registry to prevent it loading with Office applications. This edit no

'saving all' but it seems to me a better fix is needed.

4.My pictures don't appear on Word screen.

I use images and pictures in making layouts for newsletters.  All of a sudden 
I cannot see the images that I insert on Word documents.  They appear on the 
print preview screen, and they print..but are not on the screen document.  I 
think I must have inadvertently changed a setting somewhere, but I cannot 
determine what or where it is.

5.Word 2002 - Graphics don't appear

Using Word 2002, when I insert clipart, all that appears 
on the page is the frame where the clipart graphic is 
supposed to be.  The actual image fails to appear, unless 
I right-click and select Edit Picture. Only then does the 
graphic appear. I've seen this a number of times but have 
never known what do do. Thoughts?
