    OfficeXP SP2 graphics bug (XP SP2)

    I finally upgraded OfficeXP Pro and XP Publisher to SP2. All of my files that contained bitmaps with transparent backgrounds....whether in Word or Powerpoint....now have solid, non-transparent white backgrounds. Any ideas on what has gone wrong and how I can fix it would be appreciated. TIA.

    Create transparent areas in a picture
    You can create a transparent area in most pictures except in animated GIF pictures. Make these changes in an animated GIF editing program, and then insert the file again.
    1. Select the picture you want to create transparent areas in.
    2. On the Picture toolbar, click Set Transparent Color .
    3. Click the color you want to make transparent.
    Note The Set Transparent Color option is available for bitmap pictures that don't already have transparency information. It's also available for some, but not all, clip art.

    (From Word XP Help)
    Seemly your transparency settings was overwritten - make white background on one picture transparent and check other pictures with the same background.

    Thanks for the help. Your reply worked like a charm. Yep, it appears OXsp2 wiped out all of the document/file transparency settings.
