Hi, I have OS 10.3 and Office 2004. I have created a very simple letterhead template in Word. The file size of it when I'm sending it as a one-page memo is about 150K. The letterhead is an embedded .jpg (though I've also tried .png and .tif). I made the graphics in Fireworks, but have tried opening and resaving them in Preview to try to rule out a bug in the paint program. I can send the letterhead to myself and everything works as you would expect. However, when I send it to a Windows machine, the file will either crash their version of Word when they try to open it, or it balloons up to multiple megabytes in size when they send it back to me (or anyone else). I've tried everything I can think of (including remaking the letterhead graphic multiple times and using the 3 graphics formats mentioned above). The problem is consistent. Any suggestions/solutions would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking of trying to remake the Word template on the Windows machine and then let them use it on Windows and i can copy it to Mac, but I'd really rather be able to build templates on Mac and have them be compatible with Windows. Edit: Just in case it helps, the Windows side of this is Windows XP Pro- all latest updates on relatively new hardware in Dell notebooks & desktops. And what I mean by huge filesizes occurs when it is opened, some text is edited, and then saved as a Word file to be sent to someone else.
