WordArt: Text Missing WordArt 2.0 Object in Publisher File
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft WordArt, version 2.0
- Microsoft Publisher 2.0
WordArt 2.0 objects in Microsoft Publisher do not display text. When you create a WordArt 2.0 object in Publisher 2.0, you see the text you type, both in the editing box and on the page. Once you click away from the WordArt 2.0 editing box and return to the document, the text vanishes.
This problem occurs if the OLE2.REG file is not properly registered during setup of Publisher 2.0.
To work around this problem, do the following:
- Quit Publisher 2.0.
- In Program Manager, choose Run from the File menu.
Type regedit /u ole2.reg.
The following message should be displayed:
Information in ole2.reg has successfully registered.
- Repeat step 3 replacing "regedit /u ole2.reg" with regedit /u \windows\msapps\wordart\wordart2.reg
Open Publisher 2.0 and create a new WordArt 2.0 object, the text should now appear in your document.
