This is an archive related to a previous version of ArcGIS Maps for Office. If you need the current version go to http://doc.arcgis.com/en/maps-for-office/.
There are several ways to share maps and layers: you can create a copy of the map image and save it to the clipboard, you can create a PowerPoint slide, or you can share the layer or map on ArcGIS Online. Creating a copy of the map image allows you to paste the image into any program that supports paste functionality, such as word processing software and email clients.
The Contents pane does not appear in the copy of the map image.
The map image is automatically saved to the clipboard. The map image copied to the clipboard contains only the image of the map as it appears in ArcGIS Maps for Office. It does not include the map title, border, Contents pane, or navigation controls.
