I strongly suspect the problem that you're seeing is that the metafiles copied into Word are using the Mathematica fonts. If so, then it's not an issue of having all of Mathematica present, but only of the fonts...or of removing the dependence upon those fonts. Here are some possibilities... * Copy as bitmap and paste (using the Copy As submenu). Because this uses bitmaps, there will be no references to the fonts. On the downside, the bitmap will look great on screen, but really crummy when you print the Word file. * Don't use the Mathematica fonts. If you have typeset equations in the graphic, this may be hard to avoid. But if the only things that are messed up are regular characters like parentheses, braces, or brackets, then you can work around the problem by evaluating the following... SetOptions[$FrontEnd, PrivateFontOptions->{"OperatorSubstitution"->False}] Then re-evaluate the affected graphics. To restore the old behavior, do... SetOptions[$FrontEnd, PrivateFontOptions->{"OperatorSubstitution"->Inherited] This can be done through the Option Inspector, as well...just search for OperatorSubstitution. * Install the Mathematica fonts on the system where the Word file is being viewed. See this web page for a convenient way to download fonts... http://support.wolfram.com/mathematica/systems/windows/general/latestfonts. html and just drag the resulting .ttf files to the Fonts control panel.
