WordPipe and shapes in MS Word 2007+

If you have trouble with replacing text inside shapes in Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010 documents, take note.

We have found a bug in Microsoft Word where replacing text in one shape, causes all following shapes to have their text cleared - it just gets blanked out.

The same .docx document works perfectly with Microsoft Word 2003.

An alternative strategy is to use tables instead of charts.

Another strategy is to use our TextPipe Pro product to operate on the .docx's underlying XML format, although this will be tricker for some users. Let us know if you need help with this.
