WordArt in Word 2013: possible bug RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there

    Please tell me how I can convert a Word 97-2003 document (*.DOC) to the latest available format (*.DOCX) without affecting the layout of my WordArt? I'm using Word 2013 (15.0.4454.1504) 64-bit.

    To see how layout is affected, perform the following steps:

    1. In Word, create a new blank document
    2. Save the document as "Word 97-2003 Document (*.doc)"
    3. Insert a WordArt (you don't have to change anything)
    4. Convert the document to the latest format (FILE > Convert)
    5. You may be prompted regarding the conversion causing minor layout changes, just click OK
    6. The WordArt's text is resized/repositioned.

    Thanks,
    Clint

  • Hi Clint,

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

    Since Word prompts you with a notification that the layout might be changed, we don't regard

    6.The WordArt's text is resized/repositioned.

    as an abnormal behavior.

    If you want to look for a workaround, I suggest you repost your issue on Office Answers Forum.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Best regards,
