Pasted Objects Don't Appear (Word 2007)



  • 1. Word 2007 does not crop drawing objects
    It seems that the powers-that-be have decided to remove the ability to crop drawing objects in Word 2007. You can still crop images, such as Gif, jpg's, etc. but it will no longer crop metafiles, such as EMFs, or any pasted/linked vector file. This puts huge cramp in my style because that's primarily how I create my documents, by linking to drawings from Visio. Does this affect anyone else? Does anyone know of a workaround? (If there is Word 2007 group somewhere, please let me know) F. F.

Pasted Objects Don't Appear (Word 2007)

Postby SmltIEou » Thu, 04 Jun 2009 00:38:07 GMT

Often when I paste an object, one of two things will happen:
1) If I am pasting into a document (NOT into a frame): The object will paste 
to the document but will not be visible until I re-size the view (e.g.: go 
from page width to full page view, for example).
2) If I am pasting into a document (INTO A FRAME): The object does not paste 
until the second aste
I guessing these are quirks of the 2007 Word.  Any way to cure these ills?

1.Objects/Pictures don't appear in Word

When I insert a picture or an object in a Word 2002 
document, all that appears is a box, or, when clicked, 
handles of the object. The picture/clipart itself does 
not appear in regular, print or web mode. However, when I 
do a print preview, I can see the picture or object. 
Unfortunately, I cannot edit the picture or object in the 
document, so I can't move it or anything. I have the 
latest patch to Word 2002 and Windows XP Professional. 
Would appreciate any insight here. Thanks.

2.Word 2007: Paste Special Excel Chart Object as Paste Link

When I do this the charts are cropped at the bottom which leaves out 
important information like the horizontal axis and legend.  I was able to fix 
some of these charts by resetting the margins on the chart worksheet in Excel 
2007 to Normal i.e. .75,.7,.75,.7 but this doesn't seem to fix the problem 
across the board.  Resizing the image in Word only stretches it out.  The 
only other option is to apply a negative crop in Word.

Any ideas?  Let me know if more information is required.

3.pasting from Powerpoint 2007 to Word 2007 - no ungroup funtion

4.pasting from Powerpoint 2007 to Word 2007 - no ungroup funtionalit

Hello, I've built several different detailed organizational charts in 
PowerPoint 2007 that has taken me days to accomplish.  I've pasted them into 
Word 2007 without issues until I realized that it pastes the PowerPoint data 
in grouped format and I'm unable to ungroup it.  If I ungroup the data in 
Powerpoint, select multiple objects, copy, and paste into Word, it's grouped 
as a single option and there is no option to ungroup.  I need to hyperlink 
each imported object in word to bookmarks within the same document and cannot 
do so since it sees all of my objects as one entity.  Is there any way to 
copy the data over and still retain ungrouped capabilties?  I dread having to 
rebuild all of the charts from scratch within Words drawing canvas.  

Any help would be tremendously appreciated.

Thank you,

5.Paste EXCEL 2007 sheet into WORD 2007 - objects move around


We have developed a number of standard datasheets that we use on a daily 
basis in our business. The datasheets contain, among other things, logos and 
certification texts. We recently upgraded from Office 2000 to Office 2007, 
and have encountered problems when copying the sheets into WORD reports. 
After the upgrade, the images and textboxes of the sheets move about after 
pasting into WORD, destroying the layout of our reports. We copy the sheet as 
picture "as printed". Has anyone else encountered this problem? Any advice on 
how to proceed?
