Animated GIF in word

  kumo22 11:33 13 Dec 2006

I have an animated GIF that I wanted to sdd to both a word document and my website. It works great in the website but not in the word document - basically there is no animation only the image.

Is this the expected result or should we be able to view the animation in a word document.

Alternatively if I were to send an email through outlook and inserted the gif should I expect the animated element to show.

Word is intended to be used for the printed page so it's hardly surprising that an animated gif doesn't work. I think that it will work in Outlook though so send an email to yourself to test it.

and they do work in Outlook... one of my colleagues sends emails to us with animated gifs all the time. They also work in Outlook express.
