    Large Graphic (2000)

    I have a large graphic, 23.23 inches long and 6 inches wide. Is there a way to make it span pages? I've tried putting it into a table and a text box. Word cuts it off at the bottom of the first page no matter what I try. Thanks for any help but I don't think it can be done. Does anyone know of a cheap program that will allow me to slice the graphic into pieces?

    Hi Nella:
    So far as I know, graphics cannot span pages in Word. Yes, there is a cheap <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> program that will slice the graphic up...Irfanview. If you do a search for it on the software board, you will see others rave about it, as well as talk about some of it's features.
    Cheers,

    Hi Nella,

    Two other options that might be worth trying (especially the 2nd):

    1. Open the image in any suitable imaging program, select as much of the image as will fit on one page, copy and paste it into Word. Repeat until done.

    2. In Word, choose Insert|Picture|From File, then navigate to the file, select it and change the 'Insert' tag to 'Link to File' and press OK. In Word, resize the image to your preferred size, via Format|Picture|Size, then copy & paste the linked image onto as many pages as you need. Then, with each copy of the image in turn, select the image and use Format|Picture|Picture to crop precisely whatever portion you don't want to show on that page. Finally position each segment of the image on the pages (Format|Picture|Layout) wherever you need them. When you're done, you'll have as many portions of the image as you need, all linked to the original file. If the image file changes, so too will the cropped ones in Word.

    Cheers
