PUB2: Logo Creator Omits WordArt Object or Text


The information in this article applies to:

 - Microsoft Publisher version 2.0
 - Microsoft WordArt version 2.0


If you try to create a small or unusually proportioned logo using the
Logo Creator Plus PageWizard, the logo may fail to include a WordArt
object, or the WordArt text may not be visible. In some logo styles,
this problem may even occur with logos of up to 3 inches by 3 inches
in size.

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.


To work around this problem, create the logo in a size larger than 3
inches by 3 inches, and then reduce it to the size you want. In most
cases, the WordArt text will remain visible and legible when you have
resized the logo.


Steps to Reproduce Problem

1. Click the PageWizard button and choose Logo Creator Plus.

2. Draw an area that is 2 inches wide by 2 inches tall. The following
   error message appears:

      Some designs may not look correct in areas smaller than 3 inches
      (7.5 cm) wide by 2 inches (5 cm) tall. You should cancel and
      drag out a larger area. Once your design is created, resize to
      the size that looks best.

   Choose OK to close the message box and choose Next to start the

3. Answer the PageWizard's questions, selecting the following options:

    - Other Great Shapes
    - Classic style
    - Three lines of text
    - Single Border
    - Reverse the Colors

   When you have answered all the questions and entered your lines of
   text, the PageWizard begins to create the logo. When it is done, the
   following message appears:

      Some objects could not be created.

      This design requires a larger area than you have selected. You
      may want to create your design again and select an area at least
      3 inches (7.5 cm) wide by 2 inches (5 cm) tall.

In the resulting logo, the first line of text is missing. With some
logo styles or sizes, you may find that the WordArt object is missing
