Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

          I am in the process of cleaning up a scanned document converted to a word document within MS Word 2013.  At this point, I am stuck with a problem involving a symbol left between 2 lines of text.  I can not exactly highlight it without some text above or below it being selected too.  However, the symbol is on a blank line because the body of the text is double spaced.  

           Any suggestions for removing the symbol without offsetting the content above and below it will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

           George

I wrote the book in Word (Mac 2017) and exported to PDF.

Is Helvetica typically available on people PC's and devices?

Thanks

Dear All,
I am new and hope you might help. I use Windos 10 Home and MS Office / Word 2013.

This is the story.
1) I create a Word document on a USB stick
2) I saved the file onto the USB stick.
3) I edited many times the document at different times and in different days but always working on the USB stick.
4) the file was never saved on the hard drive (always edited on the USB stick)

Question:
1) Is there any viable possibility (eg. forensic investigation) that some trace or info of the document (the one that has always been on the USB stick) have been stored in the PC?
2) Should this have happened, where could said traces have been stored (swap files? tmp files? any other location')
3) Could these traces be retrieved somehow (eg. filename or even the contents of the doc file)?

Regards

First I need some advice...

If I have 15 chapters, each with between 5-25 footnotes at the end. Shall I try and keep them at the end of each chapter?

I plan to create a PDF and sell the PDF.

Does the existence of footnotes distract from the next chapter? Or is it a useful way to segment the footnotes?


If so, how do I do this with Word (2017 for Mac)?

Conversely...

If I decide to put them ALL at the bottom, after the final chapter, Word would do this automatically. I could easily update the footnotes, by inserting the Chapter numbers, since al the footnotes should, in theory, be organized sequentially.

What's your advice??

Hello, whenever I scan a large document using Paperport it has a small window that says "Nuance WIA" and it doesn't allow me to use other programs without jumping to the top. Very irritating when trying to process a word document. I have looked through many settings and can't seem to find a way to remove it. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Thank you for your help.

Word 2016/Win10:

Hi,

In a longstanding Word document, I saw the following after clicking File.

XML warning.
The doc has no macros (if that would make a difference.) Any idea what the XML represents, or how I can find out?

Thanks,

Word 2016/Win10:

Hi,

In a manuscript, I have the word "fiance" where the "e" has an accent over it.

When I search on "fiance", it's not found. Doubtless b/c of the accent. Is there a workaround?

Thanks,
Steve

Since we have upgrade to Office 2013 users can no longer open up a Word document with read/write access when another user has the document opened up in read only mode, specifically if the document contains a password to modify the document.

For instance user #1 opens the Word document they get prompted either to enter password to modify or open in read only mode. They click "Read Only", User #2 tries to open the same document and they get a warning that the document is locked for editing by user #1 even though document is read only.

In testing we've done the same exact thing in Word 2010 with the same document and user #2 gets prompted to enter password to modify and they can enter password and edit the document while user #1 has the document opened in read only.

This happens with all documents that we have set up this way, including those that were specifically created in Word 2013.

Has something changed between Word 2010 and Word 2013 that this functionality no longer exists, or are there additional settings that need to be changed to make it work, Any guidance on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a way to create a drop-down choice menu on a custom tab in Word 2016?  I know how to put custom macros into a custom tab/group but that just puts a button.  I have 15 similar buttons that I want to group into a drop-down menu like style choice or the font size drop-down menu.  Can't figure out how to do it.  Does anyone know how?

I had to reload a HP ProBook laptop using the recovery partition to "out of the box" status.  Now I've updated all the drivers but there is no wireless network available; all updates have been installed also.  In the device manager Qualcomm Atheros AR9485 Wifi Adapter shows that it is working properly.  I've turned on the wireless switch on the PC...still no wireless.  Also I've installed Office 2013 and WORD and EXCEL work fine, but when I try to configure Outlook it tells me it's not connected to the network, even though I'm hard wired and can ping google.  Any ideas??

Client uses Word 2016/Outlook 2016 has an Office 365 subscription. The spell checker keeps forgetting learned words.

File has been deleted and recreated. Rogue entries deleted from registry. Re-creation of RoamingCustom.dic has been invoked through software via Proofing Tools set up menu.

Word 2016 open, spell checker taught new word. RoamingCustom.dic file time stamp changes indicating file has been touched. Outlook 2016 also open, e-mail composed and newly added word is spelled correctly and not flagged as wrong.

Outlook 2016 e-mail composer using RoamingCustom.dic also taught new words. Time stamp of RoamingCustom.dic modified and Word 2016 also knows newly learned word.

Both apps, open at same time with AppData/....RoamingCustom.dic file being modified to prove both applications are teaching the new word to the shared dictionary file. So both applications are clearly touching the same file modifying it, updating it and using the shared file.

Works for a few days then stops working. What is causing the failure?

Many thanks.

We are trying to get Word to add and display currency properly for our European offices.  While I can get a Euro symbol, to appear, I'm having trouble getting Word to add table cells that contain currency in the European format properly.  That format being that commas are the equivalent of decimal points here in the US.  Does anyone have any advice in properly formatting European currency in Word?

FYI...I have already made the suggestion that they insert an Excel Workbook and perform the calculations there (where it works beautifully!).   We have also tried changing all the Region and Language settings and still have issues.  Thanks in advance!

Win10/Office 2016:

Hi.

I received a Win10 update overnight, followed by an Office update when I logged onto Outlook this morning.

Now, I notice that my Pinned files in Word look weird. e.g. Current file(s) missing and at least two files that haven't been there in ages have returned to this list.

Has anyone else seen this behavior? Is there a way to fix?

Thanks,
Steve

Hello Everyone,

We have a client which runs Perceptive Workgroup Search (made by Perceptive Software- formally ISYS Search software) to do searches across their network, A single Search query lets them simultaneously search across a wide range of formats, including word, excel, PDFs, XML data, SQL databases, web pages and emails. They have multiple indexes each one covering different parts of the system, however the software is not reliable anymore and the schedule maintenance tasks keep breaking causing the searches to fail, freeze or to give out outdated results.

In general, We are not happy with the reliability of the software and the support from the vendor is terrible. Can anyone recommend any similar software that can replace this program? Thanks in advanced.

Regards,

Hello,

I have a large word document with many hyperlinks to my C drive
I have moved the documents to a new location on my C drive.
I need to change, in mass, the hyperlinks to refer to the new location.

From what I know, if changing in mass, you should click Alt F9 for Draft view to see the hyperlink address.
then control H for find and replace.

I only need to change the following:
/AppData/Roaming/Microsoft
to
Documents

I made the change through Find and Replace but although I see the edit was made in Draft view, it doesn't show that edit was made when I close draft view and view the hyperlink by way of "edit hyperlink".

I am not sure what I am doing wrong.
Appreciate your help.

What method was used to create this?

Thanks for your help
