thanks that worked!--edit-copy merged-paste to Word. My next problem is saving an image that has had text added to it when it then becomes a vector.When going to file, "save as" is greyed out, what can I do to save this as a jpeg image
It's been a long time since I've used X so I can't say with 100% certainty but I don't think it should make a difference. The oldest version I have installed right now is X2 and I had no trouble with "save as"; it was not greyed out for me.
Save your image as a .psp file. Then Merge it and Save as... and you have your jpg image that you can insert in a word document as well as maintaining a file (the .psp) that you can load at any time and continue to work with.
