Microsoft Word Graphics Copying

June 25, 2010

In Microsoft Word, when you’re putting graphics on labels like the ML-3000, and you want to duplicate it quickly, the most straightforward way to do that is by using the control key as you drag the item you need to copy. Select the graphic and hold the left mouse button down while holding the control key down at the same time, then simply move the graphic to the new desired position. This is done in lieu of copy and pasting. So to make copies of a graphic on an ML-3000, first do the copies across, then select the row of 3 graphics and do the drag copy downwards once. Then select the top two rows that you now have and drag copy them downwards, and so on and so forth. It takes no time to create a ton of nice templates.

SVG is cool. ie. Inkscape is cool

June 17, 2010

If you don’t know anything about SVG, know this, it’s different than raster graphics, and stuff like bitmaps or jpgs or gifs. With SVG, you can zoom in on an SVG graphic without loss of detail. Ever try to stick a jpg graphic into a document and then resize it only to discover afterwards that the graphic has become pixellated, or fuzzy? With Inkscape (It’s FREE), you can make a little freehand drawing, then scan it, and convert it to an SVG and use the “Trace Bitmap” in the Path menu to convert the graphic into a path. Once that’s done, you can resize it without loss of detail.
Check out what I did with this little decorative swirl for an ML-3000 in inkscape.

Notice even when you zoom in on the SVG, the quality is still high.
