Has anyone yet tried to integrate a box-shaded alignment into a word
I processed a *.msf file with boxshade, resulting in a postscript
file. Now I want to get this stuff into a word for windows document.
Since Word doesn't support *.ps input, I tried two different ways:
1) I used ghostscript to convert it into a 300*300 dpi *.gif file. I
was able to import this into word, but the printout on a HPLJ4L was
not satisfying. The letters were not very good reproduced.
2) I imported the *.ps into CorelDraw and pasted it then as Corel
Draw Object into Winword. Now the 200k *.ps has ended up in a 1.6 Meg
word document (for one half of a page!!), but the result is ok when
Has anyone found another way to overcome this problem, esp.
decrasing the *.doc file size (compressing is good for transport,
but bad for handling, also the processing of the embedded corel draw
data need lots of time even on a P120/32M machine)? I don't have
access to a postscript-printer unfortunately. Will creating a word
document for the alignment (and importing it at the time of printing
into the central document) be the only solution?
Any suggestions are welcome!
