Importing objects into MS Word

By JBPIS ·
We needed to insert graphics from PowerPoint into a Word document that is size limited (1.5MB) Whenever we do this, the PPT object gets inflated. Today, the PPT graphic was 233 KB. After a trial import to a blank document, the Word doc became 1.5 MB. Testing how to overcome the problem, I have run several tests such as saving the PPT file in different formats (PNG, WMF, GIF, etc.), but the image quality degrades. MS Word Help suggests some solutions, but none are appropriate. I am using PPT and Word 2000.

On going problem. Here are some suggestions.
It might not be practical in your situation, but have you tried zipping the file?


Tools>Options>Save:
Allow Fast Saves OFF,
Always make backup ON,
Save AutoRecover non-zero,
Embed True-Type fonts OFF.

File>Properties:
Save preview picture not checked

File>Versions:
make sure you have "Automatically save a version on close" OFF, and delete any versions that are already saved.

Cutting the object and Edit>Paste Special as 'Picture'
