This article was previously published under Q172016


When you insert a CDR Graphic (Corel Draw, version 5 or 6) into a Microsoft Word 97 document, some font attributes such as double underline and double overline are lost. In some cases superscript or subscript text may also be displayed incorrectly.


To preserve the font attributes in the document, follow these steps:

  1. In Corel Draw, use the Copy command to copy the graphic.
  2. In Microsoft Word, on the Edit menu, click Paste.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.


CorelDRAW is manufactured by Corel Corporation, a vendor independent of Microsoft; we make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.
