Hello!!

I think there are several ways of doing this, however these worksheets become uneditable and this isn īt really convinient in case you have to adapt something or edit something to finally take it to class.

You just have to copy paste your ws to a powerpoint slide OR  Microsoft office publisher. Then you save it as a picture but in format .png or bitmap. After that you open the program microsoft office picture manager, select your picture and compress it (click on top where it says "picture" and then "compress pictures". On the right side select the option "document" and then OK. After you save it, copy paste the document to a blank page of word. It īs very useful when you have a lot of heavy pictures. It seems difficult but I learnt it on my own, so you can imagine how easy it must be. (I was sent this explanation by a member - paula)

Hi Samantha!! Thank you for your answer!!
The reason why I want to do it is because I īve make a printable in a particular type of font, which is probably not very common in many computers. So, if I send it as I have it in my computer, it is likely that you can īt see it right.
I īm going to try to do as you have just told me!
Thank you!

Ahhh! OK! Well, I was told to do it like that. If you write your phrase, title or whatever in WordArt, then you can open publisher, then paste it and then select it and save it as a picture. After, insert it in your word document.
Personally, I īve found using publisher, easier than using power point, I could never save things as pictures using power point! Don īt know why!

You are welcome!

Hi LovingLondon

I don īt make it the same way Sam does.
Try this, it seems easier, ( for me, obviously Tongue )
Select all the pics and text boxes you have, then right click your mouse and choose GROUP. Now you have everything in the same layer and you right click again and choose "Save as Picture "

Hope it is clear
Good luck

Unusual fonts - copy the text + open it in MS Paint, save as picture, insert in Word document
or
EMBED fonts - Menu - Tools - Options - Save Tab - check Embed TRUE TYPE fonts - OK. Not all computers have the same fonts.
embedding fonts  -WORD 2007
1. CLICK MS OFFICE BUTTON on the left - choose "WORD OPTIONS" - select SAVE TAB on the left
2. PRESERVE FIDELITY - choose your DOCUMENT and then
3. check the box for "EMBED FONTS IN THE FILE" and "EMBED ONLY CHARACTERS USED in doc"
4. and SAVE your document AS a DOCUMENT WORD 2002 so you can share it at ESLPRINTABLES


Please do not copy paste the whole page... The reading, examples, tasks SHOULD BE EDITABLE!
If you want to insert a "single picture" worksheet, INSERT a picture consisting of the headlines + pics. Background will be a single picture made from the headlines + illustrations. Move it backwards "behind" and then write/copy all textboxes on the top of the background graphics.
The main text + tasks should be editable...
