Re: Graphics from Mathematica to MS Word
Hi, Mike, I've just tried your method and it works great! Thank you! I use Mathematica v.4, Microsoft Word 2000, and HP LaserJet 2100, and also experienced the same difficulties as "Dr J. Satherley". Usually I saved pictures in Mathematica as *.bmp and then, in MW, used "Insert/Picture/From File/*.bmp". However modification of your method as "CRTL+C/CTR+V" is even easier, at least I've right now used it all the way from-Mathematica-through-MW-to-Printer, and it's OK. Thanks again, Zak F Seidov BTW What do our Mathematica Gurus recommend best?! And I have another question: Inspired by some postings in this Group I touched hurriedly some options in Format/Option Inspection, got some ugly results (when I tried ShowPageBreaks and others), and my question is: IS THERE ANY (EASY) WAY TO RESTORE DEFAULT OPTIONS??!! .......................................=======.......... %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Subject: [mg30126] Re: Transferring graphics from Mathematica to MS Word Author: Mike Yukish <may106 at psu.edu> Organization: Steven M.

What I do is just hit Ctrl-C and copy the graphic in Mathematica, then in Word I do a "Paste Special" and choose to paste it as a picture. No problem-o.
