    I have Windows 7 Home Premium and Microsoft Office 2010 so I cannot copy and paste documents with grid lines into emails. I am trying to copy a simple plan of a property into the email response box of a web based supplier of door bells etc. I tried substituting text boxes for the lines with vertical text inside but can`t copy and paste those either. In desperation (because this is likely to be necessary again) I am trying to substitute vertical rows of xxxxs for the lines. And am now having trouble changing text easily from vertical to horizontal rows.

    Use the ATTACH to attach the plans rather than trying to embed them, and refer to it in your email.

    Thanks. I will have to send an ordinary email and have written to the firm concerned asking them to give me an email address. I can`t do anything except copy and paste text into their standard reply box asking for more info. And a heap of brochures is no use to me.

    I am sure this problem will come up again and am very grateful for your advice.

    They don't deserve the business if they restrict requests in that way???

    copying property plans into email boxes.

    Yes but they do seem to supply what I am looking for - door bell systems. I am more irritated by Windows 7 limiting what I can do. Thanks again for your reply though. It will come in useful.
