How to easily resize (not crop) clip art in word?


C

Constance

I upgraded to Word XP (OFFICE PACKAGE). Now I find it impossible to resize clip art without first importing it to Powerpoint, resizing it there (easily done) and then copy/paste to word. (Do not want to crop and lose part of the clipart - only wish to resize. Help is no help.

Sounds silly, but is the only way to resize in word. The actions I use in Powerpoint won't work in Word (cannot click and drag to resize)

HELP! What is the secret code? (and, rhetorical question, why did you make it so hard when it used to be so easy?

Thanks,

Constance

Select the clip then you should be able to grab a corner or side handle on
the clip and drag the clip in or out to resize.
