DON'T USE - it causes so many problems. I no longer use Word, and the Master
Doc feature was what put me over the edge. Everyone is going to tell you this.
You'll have MAJOR problems.

This is what I used to do. Worked best. It is possible to create a Table of
Contents that looks at many separate documents. Let me know if you want the
instructions and can't find them.

I used to just cut and paste and use the Word picture editor to crop, lighten,
adjust, etc. Worked really well. I have heard that when you "link" a graphic
to Word, there can be serious problems with the links becoming broken. I would
avoid doing that.

I only switched to FrameMaker recently, and I still do a bit of work for a
previous client in Word.

Hope this helps - remember DO NOT USE MASTER DOCS!!!
