Multiple Scaled Graphics Pasted as a Picture Paste Incorrectly PSS ID Number: Q105039 Article last modified on 10-22-1993 PSS database name: W_MSPub



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Publisher version 2.0


If you copy two or more scaled pictures that are separated by a distance and paste them as a picture, your images are distorted and may end up being cropped.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

  1. Run Microsoft Publisher 2.0.
  2. Choose Start From Scratch and under Select A Page Layout, select Full Page.
  3. From the File menu, choose Import Picture and import a CGM file (for example 2GIRLS.CGM).
  4. From the Format menu, choose Scale Picture and chance the Scale Height and Scale Width settings to 10%.
  5. Select the picture and choose Copy Picture Frame from the Edit menu.
  6. From the Edit menu, choose Paste Object(s) to copy and paste a second copy of the image.
  7. Position the graphics so they are lined up either vertically or horizontally, approximately 3 inches apart.
  8. Select both images.
  9. From the Edit menu, choose Copy Object(s).
  10. From the Edit menu, choose Paste Special and select Paste as Picture.

The frame will be the correct size but the graphic will be distorted and one of the graphics may be cropped or may disappear.

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Publisher version 2.0. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
