    Inserted Pictures are stretched (Word 2000)

    Everything was fine until a week ago. All of a sudden I am experiencing the following problem when inserting pictures.

    I use the standard procedure:

    Insert > Picture > From File > Link to File.

    In the olden days the picture would appear at a reasonable size and the proportions would be correct.

    Now the picture often appears very large, such that re-sizing is essential, and, stranger yet, the picture has been stretched such that the height has to be made smaller in order for the proprotions to be restored.

    When displaying the pictures in a standard graphics viewer, eg ACDSee, all is well, but in Word's picture properties (Format > Picture > Size) the picture is enlarged and stretched. It also appears stretched when previewing the graphic in Word's preview pane.

    I've been using Word 2000 for years ;-) but am only recently coming across this. Nothing changed in my computer configuration (that I'm aware of) to cause this. It just...happenned.

    Any and all help will be gratefully recieved.


    TIA,


    David

    Thanks for responding Phil.

    It turns out that it's due to a setting in HyperSnap, a screenshot program. A friend of mine found it and the relevant dialog box is attached.


    Rgds,

    The problem has been traced to a bug in the screen capture software. The developer is a very dedicated chap and will be fixing it in an upcoming update.
