PUB2: Converting Shaded Object with BorderArt to a Metafile

PUB2: Converting Shaded Object with BorderArt to a Metafile

Q104207

-------------------------------------------------------------------
The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher for Windows, versions 2.0, 2.0a
-------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY
=======

Converting a shaded object with a BorderArt design to a metafile may
cause the BorderArt design's white background to disappear. When you
shade an object and apply a BorderArt design to it, the BorderArt
design has a white background when displayed and printed. When it's
rendered as a metafile, however, the background may disappear.

MORE INFORMATION
================

Steps to Reproduce Problem
--------------------------

1. With the rectangle tool, create a 3-by-3-inch box.

2. From the Format menu, choose Shading, and apply a solid maroon
   shading.

3. From the Format menu, choose BorderArt and select Balloons...Hot
   Air.

4. Note that the BorderArt design appears on a white background around
   the maroon box.

5. From the Edit menu, choose Copy Box.

6. From the Edit menu, choose Paste Special. Under As, select Picture.

The pasted metafile has a maroon background behind the BorderArt
design, rather than a white background, as in the original.
