Consider the following scenario. You create a document by using the Windows version of Microsoft Office. You insert an Office document as an object into this document. Then, you transfer the document to a Macintosh computer. You open this document in a Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac program or in a Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac program. In this scenario, you experience one of the following display issues with the inserted document:
- Lines of text of text may be missing.
- Words may overlap one another.
- The spacing between words may be greatly exaggerated.
These issues apply to the following objects:
- Microsoft Office Word documents
- Microsoft Office Excel charts
- Excel workbooks and worksheets
To work around this issue, you must open the Office object to force the object to re-render the preview image of the inserted object. To do this, follow these steps:
- Open the document that contains the inserted Office object.
- Locate the Office object in the document.
- Double-click the object. This will open the object in the Office 2004 program or in the Office 2008 program that handles that type of object.
- Make a minor change, such as adding and then deleting a space in the document.
- Exit and then return to the Office program.
The text in the object should now appear as expected.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a bug in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
