Inputing mathematical shapes into MS Wordis it possible to put in complicated geometrical shapes into MS Word without manually drawing them?? eg put a pair of parallel lines or put in angle #2 20100112 04:21:24

Re: Inputing mathematical shapes into MS Wordsounds promising...any idea how much memory Open Office 3.1.1 takes up when you finish installing the binary file(150MB aaaaaaahh)? Last edited by 1a2b3c2212 (20100113 01:06:18) #4 20100113 02:42:06

Re: Inputing mathematical shapes into MS Wordis it compatible on windows vista ? i plan to have MS Word+ OOo on the same computer. #10 20100114 00:40:36
Re: Inputing mathematical shapes into MS WordI would presume so, 1a2b3c2212, but I don't know for sure. I have XP Home and both run fine together (eg, M$ Word & OOo Draw open at the same time so I can copy/paste from one to the other).

Re: Inputing mathematical shapes into MS WordEver tried the PowerPoint shape editor? It works well, but you can't get it out of the PowerPoint. I'll be here at least once every month. XP #13 20100115 02:42:07
Re: Inputing mathematical shapes into MS Wordyea that's the point lol. i need to draw pictures and get them into MS Word. right now im using paint cos im too lazy to install. >.< #14 20100115 09:43:54
Re: Inputing mathematical shapes into MS WordHi 1a2b3c2212 & quittyqat,
It's very easy to create parallel lines in Word: draw one (optionally set it to the angle you want via Format AutoShape/Size/Rotate), then copy/paste it. You can also align them together, or with other objects, by using the Drawing toolbar's aligning tools. If you've activated "Drawing Grid/Object Snapping/Snap objects to other objects", the object you move will snap to other objects.
