    User has text boxes within cells of a table in Word 2003. Originally files were created in Word 97.

    Copies text boxes into another existing file and the text changes size and will not fully show inside text box ie. it is chopped off. If copies text boxes into a brand new document, the paste is fine, all sizes correct.

    When doing the paste, smart tag option of keep source formatting is selected but this seems to make no difference.

    Any ideas?

    Since you copy into an existing file, have you tried to enlarge the text area into which you copy in the existing file - try doing it before you copy into the text box if that is possible.

    i have tried copying the text boxes into a brand new document and they are still enlarging and then being truncated within the text box.

    I wonder if it is anything to do with my default text size settings which are Ariel size 12 because that is what size it then makes the text inside the text boxes when i copy them into a new document. In original document, text is Ariel size 9 which is why they fit fine.
