Dear colleagues,

I have a word document with some graphics to translate. But every time I want to overwrite the text in the graphics the programme shows: object is damaged or doesn't exist.

Can someone tell me what to do?

Greetings
Anett Kiefer

Try text boxes Jun 28, 2003

I sometimes use text boxes without borders which I place over the text in a graphic. This works well as long as there is not too much text or the text boxes do not crowd the image.

I use Jasc Paint Shop Pro Jun 28, 2003

To produce quality output I replace images used in Word docs or in Powerpoint (god save us from it) ppts. Images I edit with the above prog, which is distributed with modems etc. generally easily available. Less functional than Photoshop, but generally enough for most things, loads much faster and costs nothing. Cut the text in the image, then add my translation to it using the text input tool of the program... http://www.jasc.com

Sure PaintShop Pro is not freeware. For professional puposes you have to buy the licence.
But Photoshop LE or Elements comes free with many scanners etc. and it is legal to use it. PSP costs about 160 Euro, as far as I know.
I the program does not support some grapfic format one can always capture the area from the Word-document and save it in an easier format, translate the text and exchange it to the original image. But this I would do only if paid by the hour.

Jasc PSP price Jun 29, 2003

I went to Jasc site, it's $99, so not free, sure. But trial copy is available, if desperately need to finish a job you need to submit the day before yesterday. My copy came free with modem drivers CD... Has the same function of capruting anything that is displayed on the screen of you computer. Again, I'm not promoting any software house, far from it. The advice above is what I rely on, just using a different package. Conclusion is clear, if you want you output to be good for sure, use image editing software, and of course put an extra charge for having to fiddle about. Good luck to all!
