There are times when using Microsoft Word that will require the addition of an outside element, usually something like an Excel sheet, PowerPoint slide or other visual aid. A common issue faced by users is having to significantly alter the size of the external element to fit between the margins of the portrait orientation, ultimately detracting from its impact.
