    I am trying to add graphics to return address labels and seem to find out exactly how to do this. I cannot access my toolbar when I'm in the envelopes and label window. When I design my label in Word it won't transfer to the label window.

  • 3. Corrupted Excel Objects Embedded in Word 2000
    Have any of you encountered problems with embedded Excel objects in Microsoft Word 2000 (i.e., turning from a "Worksheet Object" to an "Object")? I have tried turning off the gridlines in Excel and various other tricks, but am still encountering occasional corruptions of embedded Excel objects in Word 2000. Is there any way to reassociate the object with the source application, without having to re-embed another version of the spreadsheet. I have large financial documents that I work on with embedded Excel sheets, and this has become quite a pain in the XXX to deal with. Any sugeestions would be greatly appreciated. Mike B.

    Is there a keyboard shortcut to turn on and off the drawing gridlines? (Instead of clicking it on and off through the Drawing toolbar/Grid command?) Thanks!

Inserted Jpeg Picture object appears as Icon

Postby Randy » Sat, 14 Feb 2004 08:05:54 GMT

Word 2003
Windows 2000
Canon C2100 Imageclass PS printer

We scan a document and save it as a Jpeg file.  
When we Inser>picture>From File and print to our PS 
printer, the image is printed in a mashed, but multi-
imaged manner.  That is the one picture is repeated about 
8 times on the page but it is squished vertically to 
accommodate the 8 copies.
We have tried inserting the image as an object Created 
from file, but the image appears as an Icon and not the 
actual image.  This step works fine in Word 2002 but not 

Any help or ideas would be great!

1.Unwanted lines appearing under inserted pictures & other objects.

Sometimes when I insert a picture or other object (i.e. an Excel worksheet) 
into a Word document, an unwanted line appears beneath the picture or object. 
 It is not a border, nor is it the type of line one would draw using Word's 
Drawing Toolbar.  It seems to be part of the object itself.  My guess is that 
something happens when I insert the object, since I have checked every time 
to see if this renegade line was part of the original picture or object, and 
it is not.

In Word X, inserted linked Photoshop objects appeared (not the icon)when 
the file was closed and reopened.  With Office 2004, only the icon appears.

4.Using (Insert-Object) vs (Inserting-Picture-From File)

I have a question concering methods for inserting a 

Here are the details:

I have 6 jpg graphics that are about 30kb each.  When 
using the commands Insert-Object-Create from File, the 
Word file is almost 7MB.  I checked the file size when 
checkin the properties.  When using the traditional 
commands Insert-Picture-From File, the Word doc is about 
300kb which is what I would have expected.

What is the OLE method doing different?  It seems to 
almost decompress the graphic file which requires a 
tremendous amount more.  The pics even come is much larger 
in appearance when using this method as well.

Just curious about the behind-the-scene differences 
between the two.  Thanks

5.saving inserted picture file as a .jpeg

I received a Word document that has a picture file inserted in the document, 
and the "frame" is tight around the picture.  I want to save that picture as 
a .jpeg or other picture file, and cannot remember how to do it.

The steps I took is to copy/paste the picture file into either Paint or 
Picture It! (the only 2 picture editing software programs that I have on my 
laptop) then paste the picture into the program mentioned above.  Then I do a 
file save as .jpeg file type, I am able to save it as a .jpeg file.  But, 
when I insert it into a document, it has alot of "white space around the 
picture, and when I adjust the size of the file it skews the picture.  I know 
that I can perform edits to the picture, but what I would like to do is save 
it as a .jpeg file that has the "frame" of the picture tight around it as it 
did in the original Word Document.

How can this be accomplished?
