    An Office 2007 Anomaly? (SP1)

    Would you know of any differences between how Outlook 2007ís implementation of Word 2007 as its editor, differs from Word 2007?

    I have been trying to select a region from a webpage, and copy/paste it into an Outlook 2007 HTML-formatted email. The page contains both graphics and text, and not all the graphics are being pasted into the email (I have been doing this, at this particular website, for 7-8 years with no problems until a few months ago). If I choose, instead, to open Word 2007, I can paste everything there with no problem. If I then try to copy/paste from Word 2007 to Outlook 2007, I lose some of the graphics again.

    The website is for http://www.dvdfile.com/

    This particular page (sloppy Ė you need to scroll down and copy from the Steven Seagal entry down to Miracle At St. Anna) is at http://www.dvdfile.com/article/a-slow-firs...-few-gems-13004

    I can save the Word 2007 document as a PDF and send it that way, but would prefer not to. I tried to copy/paste from within the PDF, but all graphics and formatting is lost when pasting into the Outlook 2007 HTML email. Of course, I can send it also as a single image (I use Hyperionicís HyperSnap), but then the text cannot be utilized by the emailís recipient. Am I on the right track, or am I simply asking the wrong questions?

    FWIW, Woody has duplicated this...

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by jscher2000 on 30-Nov-08 11:11. )</P>First, I tested in Firefox 3. I selected from above Hobson's Choice to below Igor, and the images copied just fine, but the text does not carry over the style rules. If I select them all at once, I only see the last two images. (It didn't matter whether I started selecting from the top or the bottom.)

    Next, I tested in Internet Explorer 7. The results were similar, except when I paste the entire set I see the last four images.

    If the server were rejecting the image requests (Word and Outlook re-request the images), then you would expect consistent results between the two programs. I saved the page locally from IE as a Web Archive (MHTML file), opened it, and pasted from there, and got the same result.

    So... I'm not sure what's happening here. What results do you get in a non-Office-based HTML editor like Outlook Express/Windows Mail?

    Anyway, unless it's your site, you probably shouldn't be mailing whole pages from it. Just send a link so the author can make their ad revenues to support themselves. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Added: I tested using one of my pages with 11 images and light text (moto) and it pasted just fine. Could it be the number of images? I tried a page with 54 thumbnails (Ko Surin) and was able to paste that without difficulty. Very mysterious.

    You are not alone in being stumped as to what is happening. To re-focus, do you or anyone else know what differences exist between how Outlook 2007 implements Word 2007, as an HTML email editor, and how Word 2007 works directly? I'd really hate to have to deal directly with Microsoft! Yikes!

    P.S. Without going into details, those involved know exactly what I'm doing with their content.

    These probably are not helpful, because they relate to the overall design of the Word/Outlook rendering engine, but you might skim them for clues related to the images in this case:

    Mark -

    As you know, I played with it, and I'm completely stumped, too. There has to be some difference, but I can't figure out what it might be - or even where the difference might lie...

    Thanks, jscher2000. These look very informative -- now all I have to do is figure out what I'm reading! <img src=/S/dizzy.gif border=0 alt=dizzy width=15 height=15>

    I know, and I appreciate your input on this, Woody. I suppose I have to decide whether it's worth paying Microsoft to tell me what (I think) should already be documented and easily found.
