Word 2007 insert from scanner - not there!!

  compumac 22:43 12 Jul 09

I have been using Word 2003 for some considerable time but recently installed Office 2007 onto my main PC. Despite using the 2007 version for some weeks now, it was only tonight that I needed to insert a picture from scanner. I now find by googling that others have raised the question of this missing function and that the only way now is to scan, save the image and then insert.
Anyone know better?

why not open Word, then in Menu maybe under Insert you can find Acquire for Scanner

That's a faff with Office. I use WordPerfect different versions and I only have to do as above

I would hardly compare WordPerfect with Office 2007.

Quote from Microsoft:

Office 2007
The From Scanner or Camera option for adding pictures to a document is not available in the Microsoft Office 2007 suite.

which backs up what compumac is saying.

Thanks for that. Alt + IPS works great - brings up the scanner!!! Works fine. So easy.
I had every confidence that someone on the forum would come up with an answer even with spending all yesterday afternoon trawling the web and not coming across a good alternative.
This confirms this forum as being one of the better forums for obtaining solutions, quickly

Well me I would not swap from WordPerfect to Office. The Law society still use WordPerfect for lawyers

Does that mean my WordPerfect coffee mug is still current?
