Word: Converting a Table Cell to a Graphic in Word 4.00

PSS ID Number: Q39816 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

====================================================================== 4.00 MACINTOSH kbgraphic

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, version 4.0


If a single cell is selected in a multiple-column table created with the Insert Table command in Word version 4.00 and then COMMAND+OPTION+D is pressed to convert the selection to a graphic in the Clipboard, the entire row of that table will be converted. This behavior is by program design.

To convert only the contents of the cell (without cell formatting, such as borders), do the following:

  1. Drag the I-beam cursor across the contents to select them.

To convert a single cell with the cell formatting (such as borders) do the following:

  1. Select the cell.
  2. Choose Copy from the Edit menu.
  3. Choose New from the File menu.
  4. Choose Paste from the Edit menu.
  5. Select the cell again.

The above procedures convert the selection to a graphic in the Clipboard. This graphic can then be pasted into another Word document or another application.
