Validating Images in Word

If you inserted images in your Microsoft Word source documents, you can validate the images you inserted using the WebWorks Transit menu for Microsoft Word before you generate output. For more information about inserting images into Microsoft Word source documents, see “Inserting Images in Word” on page 190.

In the WebWorks Transit menu for Microsoft Word, embedded images are referred to as inline shapes, and images referenced by links in Microsoft Word source documents are referred to as shapes.When you validate embedded images or images referenced by links in Microsoft Word source documents, if ePublisher detects an issue with the image in your source document, ePublisher displays an error and highlights the image with the issue in your Microsoft Word source document.

To validate images in a Microsoft Word source document:

  1. Open the Microsoft Word source document that contains the images you want to validate.

  2. If you want to validate embedded images, complete the following steps:

  3. On the WebWorks menu, click Tools  > Validate Inline Shapes.

  4. ePublisher displays a message that tells you how many embedded images are in the source document. Click OK to continue with the validation.

  5. If ePublisher did not detect any issues with the embedded images, ePublisher displays a status message that tells you all embedded images were validated successfully.

  6. If ePublisher detects an issue with an embedded image, ePublisher displays an error message. Complete one of the following steps:

  7. If you want to fix the image with the issue, click No to stop the validation scan. Go to the highlighted inline shape with the issue, fix the inline shape by re-adding the inline shape to your Microsoft Word source document, and then run the inline shape validation scan again.

  8. If you want to continue the scan without fixing the image with the 'issue, click Yes to continue with the validation scan.

  9. If you want to validate images referenced by links, complete the following steps:

  10. On the WebWorks menu, click Tools  > Validate Shapes.

  11. ePublisher displays a message that tells you how many images referenced by links are in the source document. Click OK to continue with the validation.

  12. If ePublisher did not detect any issues with the images referenced by links, ePublisher displays a status message that tells you all images were validated successfully.

  13. If ePublisher detects an issue with an image referenced by a link, ePublisher displays an error message. Complete one of the following steps:

  14. If you want to fix the image with the issue, click No to stop the validation scan. Go to the highlighted shape with the issue, fix the shape by re-adding the link to the shape in your Microsoft Word source document, and then run the inline shape validation scan again.

  15. If you want to continue the scan without fixing the image with the 'issue, click Yes to continue with the validation scan.
