My preferred approach is to use Balsamiq for screen mockups, and Word for specifications documents. I need to merge these in order to put together a unified spec for my developers.
I was enthusiastic when I found the Copy as Image option because this seemed like a great way to streamline this workflow. However, I am seeing a very high crash ratio when pasting these in to Word. I’d say that about 1 out of every three paste operations results in a Word crash, restart, recovery… I don’t have any problems with Word otherwise. Word runs rock solidly for me until I start pasting images from Balsamiq.
I’m using Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 on Windows 7 and I’m using Balsamiq 2.2.24.
Thanks for any assistance which you can provide!
UPDATE: I updated to version 3.0.5 and I haven’t seen the problem for a couple of hours now. I hope this has solved the problem. Once thing I do note is that with v3.0.5 the screen does not flicker when copying the image (Ctrl-Alt-C) so possibly a better screen-image capture technique is being used.
