Pasting Excel Charts in Word via Crossover Linux
2010 January 6
Pasting a chart from MS Excel 2007 to Word 2007 will yield a To insert a chart, you must first close any open dialog boxes or cancel editing mode in Microsoft Office Excel error. This bug is found in Crossover Linux Pro v8.0.0. I assume that this will also occur in publicly available versions of Wine.
An alternative solution aside from booting to Windows is to use the Paste Special feature. Paste it as a Picture (Enhanced Metafile). This will preserve the vector information of the chart so zooming in and out of the document object wont’ be a problem.
