A Fast Way to Extract from Word
I use AuthorTec Extract Objects to do some quick and dirty pulling of things from one document to another.
Either creating a new doc with custom-marked excerpts from the source, or moving/copying full groups of things to another open document.
With AuthorTec Extract Objects you can extract just about anything. To either a new Word document or into an existing one.
Here is a common use scenario for me:
As I'm developing instructor and participant guides, I will add Smart Art to illustrate workflow and process or progress, etc. When the project is done, or when I need to pull the content into another deliverable, I'll use Extract Objects to grab all of the Smart Art and pull it into a reference. I can move them from the Word doc into PowerPoint or share them with teammates, etc.
