Export Control Descriptions
June 07, 2016 01:10PM
When I exported the descriptions to Word (to set up a couple of sheets to copy for competitors to carry) I met a couple of problems. I wanted 6mm boxes and had specified that for on-the-map descriptions, but the exported ones had 7mm boxes. I couldn't find anywhere to set this for the export. So after pasting into Word I had to resize them all, but then the Word pdf export didn't work properly (see attachment). What should I have done?

Hi Michael

I believe that when you copy control descriptions to the clipboard (assuming that is what you did) then they will have the standard 7 mm box width. It should be possible to resize the entire object after pasting it in the receiving program.

I can see the interesting effect in the PDF file that you attach. It is difficult for me to say what Word does with the export, but I'll see if I can reproduce this and figure out if there is anything that I can do with the Condes paste to clipboard.
