    MS Draw in O2000? (2000)

    Does anyone know whatever happened to MS Draw? There was an MS Draw 97 and 98 that gave you the custom drawing functions from Word (SmartShapes, etc.) as an embeddable OLE object. I often used this to put quick drawings into Publisher (97). It's still available on MS' web site.

    I suddenly needed it again and went looking for it today to no avail. It seems to be gone as of Office 2000. The older version will not install without Office 97 already installed. It doesn't recognize Word 2000. <img src=/S/bummer.gif border=0 alt=bummer width=15 height=15>

    Any ideas? (Other than installing Office 97 or buying Visio!)

    In Word and Excel at least, View > Toolbars > Drawing . . .
    Is that what you are looking for?

    Well, yes and no. The purpose of MSDraw was to make those drawing functions available to programs OTHER THAN Word and Excel (in my case, specifically MS Publisher)

    From Microsoft's Web page for Draw 98:

    <blockquote><hr>The Draw 98 add-in for Microsoft Office enhances the drawing features in Microsoft Word 97, and makes those features available in all of the Office programs. With Draw 98, you'll be able to create cool 3-D text effects, diagrams of AutoShapes and connectors and much more. Draw 98 expands the OfficeArt capabilities to include Microsoft Publisher, Microsoft Outlook
