Troubleshooting

Drawn Object Prints Across Two Pages

Q1:I drew a callout on my worksheet. But when I print the sheet, part of the callout is cut off and appears on a second page. Why?
A1: You let the callout extend beyond a page break. It's easy to ignore the dashed lines that indicate the edge of a page's print area. Try moving and/or resizing the callout until it fits.

Drawn Objects and Excel File Sizes

Q1:I added clip art to one of my workbooks, but it made the file so large it takes forever to email it to someone over my dialup Internet connection. Is there clip art available that doesn't take up so much disk space?
A1: It is challenging to find "lean" clip art and photographs. The more elaborate an image, the more data it adds to the workbook file, increasing its size. You can use image-editing software to crop photographic images to reduce their size. You can also use image-editing software to convert bitmapped, nonphotographic images to use a smaller number of colors—for example, reducing a 16-bit color image to a 256-color image reaps a tremendous savings in file size. However, some images don't look right when you reduce the number of colors. Finally, the World Wide Web is rich with sites that offer clip art. You may be able to find something out there that will be attractive, effective, and economically sized. (Bear in mind that much clip art available on the Web is copyrighted.)
