XL98: Bitmap Image Shrinks When Pasted on a Toolbar Button

ID: q179039

The information in this article applies to:


When you copy a bitmap image on a worksheet, dialog sheet or Microsoft Excel 4.0 macro sheet, and then paste the image on a toolbar button, the image shrinks and may appear distorted. This problem may occur when you manually or programmatically copy and paste the bitmap.


This problem occurs if the bitmap image that you copy is formatted with a border.


To work around this problem, remove the border from the image before you copy it. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Hold down the CONTROL key and click the picture. Click Format Picture.

  2. In the Format Picture dialog box, click the Colors And Lines tab.

  3. Click No Line in the Line Color list, and then click OK.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
