I save the document as a display, then right click,
'copy', and 'paste' into the Word (or in my case I

after I've done it. I usually work with three windows
open. My publisher document, signmaker, and
signpuddle search by words. I search to see if
someone else has just the sign I want. If not I make
it, then copy and past the sign into my document. I
use Internet explorer, and have had no problems with
this method. It works with Word too, I just prefer
