    Hi Guys

    I am sure that you have all come across this problem.

    Customer comes in with his/her lovely design on a disc or usb stick.
    Problem, it’s in a Word Document. Nice crisp logo but how the heck do I get it into Corel or Illustrator?

    I have tried converting to a pdf using Bullzip (good program) then importing but it just does not work.
    It would appear to be a vector format within the Word doc but how does one get it to export as such?

    Get the same problem when people come in with menus in a Word Doc.

    Thanks for any help.

    Tim, usually a .wmf copy and paste works. As for text take a look here … doc#347439

    Thanks Chris

    I’ll give it a go.
    Do you mean copy then paste special in Corel?

    Other thing that often works – save the Word doc as a webpage / html ( there is an option to do this on the ‘SAVE AS’ menu in Word ).

    This will then create a folder with all the parts that make up the doc, like the pics etc… and you can just copy and paste those into Corel.
