I have a Nelson's Complete book of maps and charts.  I am trying to copy a chart to powerpoint moving everything, not just the text.  Is that possible?  If so, how do you do it?

Thanks.

Steve

Steve,

 

Just right click on the image file you should see, an option to send to power point.

Some articles like BAR, you have to right click and copy and paste into power point.

Thank you for your suggestion.  I have tried what you have said.  I don't get the option to send to power point when I right click.  So I copy and paste into power point.  When I do this, only the text moves to power point, not the chart with it.  That is my problem.  Thank You.

Steve,

In the resource Nelson's Complete book of maps & charts, you will need to right click on the chart. Then when the popup menu appears, you will need to select Image and the option for Power Point should appear. See screen capture below

the Image option appears for some of the things in that book, but not for all of them. Some of the timelines seen to be in an excel format, and the only option you have is copy.

Could you tell me which Timeline in Nelson's Complete.. book which is not working for you so that i could try it on my system. If it works on someone elses system, then this might point us to the problem.

Thank You very much.

I can see how it works but I can't highlight the chart, I can only highlight the text.  How do you highlight the chart with the text.

Steve,

 

Try Genesis at a glance.  On a right click you only get the selection option, but the graph below it you get the image option.

I got what you said to work.  So, I cannot copy "at a glance"  parts of the book but I will be able to copy some of the other materials in this resource? Can the "at a glance" be recreated without hand imputing and making a whole new chart?

I see what you are saying now. You are right, you can only select the text.

There is a way to get the chart as an image (if the whole image shows on the screen). You could do a screen capture, then crop the chart and then past it into Power Point.

I know this is a work around. But i have no other suggestions.

Steve,

 

Do you still have Logos 3 installed?  If you do, the copy functions works to copy the graph from the "at a glance" material. I checked this out on my L3. Not sure why it does not work in L4.

Kenneth,

You are right about L3 copying. But i got L4 to copy the same way. It copies it as a table entry when pasted into Word. Unfortunately the cells don't size correctly, thus causing wrapping of partial words.

 

Steve,

I tried a screen capture of 1 Peter at a glance below is what i got. So you could use either way that works for you.

Steve,

 

When I copy from L3 into Word, it looks the same as the source from Nelson's.in a table and the format looks good.  When I copy from L4 into Word, I get the text, with the table missing. and everything is running together.

Thank you.  I least I know it is not me.  I still have L3 but I have to download the resource in order to use it on L3 and see if it works.  Is it easy to download from the website to L3?

 

Thanks again for your help.

That looks good.  Now I have to learn how to do a screen shot or get the info from L3.  That is exactly what I am looking for.

Thank You again.  Great work.

Kenneth,

You are right, i needed to have L3 in full screen mode when i copied the chart. Then when i pasted it into Word there was no wrapping.

When trying it with L4 i did see a significant difference. The table was scrunched up with wrapping of partial text in cells.

Odd that it acts different between the 2 programs.

 

Steve,

I don't know about downloading from the website. I had already purchased it prior to L4 coming out. I did notice that the Holman series which came with L4 have not showed up on my L3, this may be due to my lack of doing something.

Good Luck and may God Bless you both!

 

P.S.  i noticed that the screen capture was not 1 Peter, so i re-captured it below
