WD: MacWord Picture Borders Not Retained in Conversion from RTF

PSS ID Number: Q105779 Article last modified on 11-10-1998

MACINTOSH: 5.0, 5.1, 6.0, 6.0.1, 98; WINDOWS: 6.0, 6.0a, 6.0c, 7.0, 7.0a, 97

MACINTOSH WINDOWS

======================================================================

The information in this article applies to:

  • == Microsoft Word for Macintosh, versions 5.0, 5.1 ==

SYMPTOMS

The border of a graphic in a document created in Microsoft Word version 5.0 or 5.1 for the Macintosh and saved as Rich Text Format (RTF) is lost when you open the document in Word versions 6.0 and later.

CAUSE

Borders applied to pictures in Word 5.0 and 5.1 for the Macintosh are character formats and not picture attributes. When you save a document containing bordered pictures in RTF, the RTF reader does not interpret the graphic border for translation. Thus, when you open the document in Word 6.0 and later, there is no reference to a border and none is applied.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, save the document in Word for the Macintosh format instead of RTF to ensure that picture borders are retained.
