I humbly submit this to the Fount of all Knowledge that is the bilge.

I have a Word document with an embedded picture. The picture is a graph depicting depicting data. I need to share this document with a client, but I'm bound by confidentiality from sharing the source of that graph. I need to delete or black out one line of text identifying that source. This line is within the boundaries of the embedded picture.

put an opaque text box over the stuff you want hidden and turn the graph/text box into a picture that the person you are sending too can't edit

1) Cumbersome: screengrab the picture, shoop out the source, insert it as a new graphic into the doc.

2) Not so cumbersome, may be less secure: stick an opaque textbox (or "shape") over the source and save the doc as a PDF.

That is a helpful suggestion. You two seem pretty good for each other. Ever thought of getting into a relationship with each other? Then you could help him all the time :D

Yeah? Are you two sitting in the same house, sending messages though the Bilge?

When you say it like that it sure does sound romantic.

Edit the imbedded picture by using the "snipping tool" provided with the OS to cut the unwanted image text.
