Microsoft Word is a commercial document editing program that is part of the Microsoft Office suite. It features numerous text-editing tools for creating richly formatted documents, along with tools for the use of macros in Word documents. Word's native file formats are denoted either by a .doc or .docx file extension. Plugins permitting the Windows versions of Word to read and write formats it does not natively support, such as the OpenDocument format (ODF) are available. Word can import and display images in common bitmap formats such as JPG and GIF. It can also be used to create and display simple line-art.

I have a 5 page document. Everything is normal. But on page 3, I want to create a collapsible outline of a seminar that is coming up. How can I create this?
In other words, I want to create major headings:
1
2
3
4
and then when I expand/click on those numbers I want to have
1
    a.  
    b.
    c.  
    d. i)
        ii)
        iii)
        iv)
2
    a.
    b.
    c.
    d.

How do I create a collasable outline.

Hi All

I have been tasked with searching through an Ex Users PST file.

There are a number of criteria being asked, for example:
1) All Emails between the Ex User and Person X
2) All Emails between the Ex User and Person Y
3) All emails between the Ex User, Person X And Person Y talking as a group
4) Emails with the word 'Blah' in it

Is there a better way of searching through this PST file other than the Search options that come with Outlook as even the Advanced Search option does not really offer these search criteria.

Any ideas or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
John.

Running Word 2007 on a Windows 7 platform, I've created calendars for this year and next year.  This year's calendar opens at a zoom of 100%, but next year's calendar appears smaller.  If I use View>Zoom 100%, it appears the same as this year's calendar.  However, that setting is not retained, and the calendar opens smaller the next time.  I'd like to know how to get next year's calendar to retain a 100% zoom.   As an aside, I know that the platform and application I am using are legacy, and I am not interested in changing that.  Thanks in advance!Different sizes for calendars

I can see the crop marks in my word document but I also want to print them.
How can I get MS Word to print my crop marks.

ALSO, I want Word to stop prompting me for special paper and just use 8 1/2" x 11" paper.
Eventually I'll be sending this to the printer but for the time being I"m okay with this printing out on 8 1/2  x 11 paper.

Ewarenow has 5 O365 Business Premium users.. We have Word, Excel, and PowerPoint templates developed over many years.
When I start Word (for example) and click New I see an option to click on the company name registered with Microsoft: Ewarenow LLC.

But I cannot find where and how to populate that with our templates.Desired-Location.PNGHere is where they reside now

Using Word, whenever I start the program it shows about eight or nine stock templates I can choose from:

Other than Blank, none of these are ones I'd ever need to use.

How can I replace these with ones of my own design?

Hi,

Got great help recently with a Word Macro!

Does EXACTLY what I needed. :D!

Want to know if there's any way to add a feature to it.

This Macro allows me to search for a specific style.  Once found the Macro will focus the screen to the last character of the text.  So that, when you run the search, you may see at the top of your screen:

the force is impressed.

While the full lines of the styled text may be

The alteration of motion is ever proportional
to the motive force impressed and is made
it in direction of the right line in
which the force is impressed.


with

The alteration of motion is ever proportional
to the motive force impressed and is made
it in direction of the right line in


not visible just beyond the upper edge of the screen.

Is there any way to have the macro execute the searches BUT...to add a line or two BEFORE the point of the find?

Put another way, add a bit of space that appears before the found text block that has the style?

Sub aaai_JumpToStyle_Fwd()
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
    Selection.Find.Style = ActiveDocument.Styles("chrAComms")
    With Selection.Find
        .Text = ""
        .Replacement.Text = ""
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindAsk
        .Format = True
        .MatchCase = False

Hi Folks,

When printing an EE article, code snippets are jumbled up...they look like this:

print-bad
Gustav Brock submitted a bug report on this more than two years ago:
Code blocks of article print view are unreadable

The EE Mod at the time, Modalot, said this:
Ouch. That renders the printout almost useless. I've filed this internally as a major bug.
Not being aware of Gustav's bug report, I submitted one about two months ago:
Print feature at articles does not format code snippets properly

In response to my bug report, the same Mod (Modalot) informed me that it is an old bug and is "still unresolved". Being more than 2-1/4 years old and filed as a "major bug" by a Mod who has been an EE member for more than 10 years, it seems to me that EE is either incapable of, or not interested in, fixing the bug. As a result, I'm looking to the experts here for a workaround. I want to use the workaround to "print-to-PDF" my 63 EE articles and the Steps at my 47 EE video Micro Tutorials. Although that's 110 publications, only some of them have code snippets, so while I would prefer as automated a solution as possible, having to do some manual effort on each one is fine. I'm also fine with a solution that requires other products, such as Microsoft Word, or other commercial software. Thanks for your ideas! Regards, Joe

I've got a style that I do lots of commenting in.  

Microsoft Word has got a search by style built-in, but it's pretty clunky.

Is there any way to modify this Macro to have it search for a named style?

The style name I'm using is

chrAComms

And it is a character style.

Sub aaag_HeaderDown()
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToHeading, Which:=wdGoToNext, Count:=1, Name:=""
ErrorHandler:
End Sub

Sub aaah_HeaderUp()
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToHeading, Which:=wdGoToPrevious, Count:=1, Name:=""
ErrorHandler:
End Sub

Open in new window


My thinking here is that f I can get a Macro to run the style search, I can set two keyboard shoorcuts and blaze through to the comments I need to see.

Many thanks!!

IPad (3) IOS 13.3.1

My Word Documents downloaded to my IPad from  OneDrive app are protected and cannot be edited. A message tells me they are of an older Word format which needs to be upgraded and there is an upgrade button which I press. A new version of the file appears but it too is protected. I thought of uninstalling and reinstalling Word but am afraid I will be asked for money. Is there any way around this

Using 22pt text for some work in Word & the font Perpetua.

The font is VERY readable.

But, the line height within paragraphs at 22pt is distracting.

With Single Line spacing selected in Word, tried even 21 point and it seemed to crush lots of lines together.

In addition to Single there are 1.5, Double, At Least, Exactly and Multiple.

What combination of Spacing variables should I apply to 22pt Perpetua text to bring the lines within paragraphs about 25% closer together?

I have a potential client that is using an ERP system called Priority which produces various documents such as invoices using a Word template with mapped XML fields.

Sometimes they will produce a single document, sometimes it is a batch.

They want the document to say different things depending on the data.

If this were a Word mail merge I would use a If..Then..Else field in the mail merge, but they tell me that isn't working.  I guess that is because they aren't running a Word merge.

Can you use IF fields in this XML situation, if so how?

I am in the throws of organising a group dinner. I have collated all of the attendants menu choices using Google Forms and now have the data in Google Sheets. From Google sheets I can copy into Excel if so required.

I am looking to produce Table Place Name Cards with each attendant name and their menu choice. Hoping to have a folded card in tent format with Name of attendant on front and their menu choices on the rear. I am planning on using a pre-perforated sheet of business cards so that I can print and easily separate the cards before then folding in half to create the tent.

I was hoping to use a Mail Merge into a suitable sized sheet of "cards" but the difficulty I have is getting the text so that it is the right way up on both sides; printing the name first it has to be printed upside down so that when the card is folded it is then the right way up in relation to the menu choices on the rear.

In Word I can create the table to match the business cards and use mail merge fields or in Excel, I can just create a sheet that mirrors the table for business cards in Word by adjusting column and row heights, with interval columns/rows as required and then do some lookup formulas to get the data.

So the question is whether Google Docs/Word or Google Sheets/Excel have an option to rotate text through 180 degrees.

I have found a way to do it in Excel (and can presumably do same in Sheets) by aligning the text vertically and rotating through 90 degrees for one side and…

I have created a multiple-userform application called the “Text Editing Tool”, whose purpose is to enable me to select text, highlight it and add a comment without having to re-select the text. It also provides a means of loading a separate Word document table into its comments combobox to serve as pre-written comments that can be added without typing them each time.
The problem I’m experiencing is that whenever I open another form in the same project, or when I open a standard dialog box (save as), the comments list entries disappear. This occurs when I click ‘Manage Open’, which opens a userform that lists all the open documents, when I click ‘Choose Highlight Color’, which opens another userform so a highlight color can be selected, and when I click ‘Save List’, which opens the Save As dialog. In all three cases, whether I select a document to close in ‘Manage Open’, a color in ‘Choose Highlight Color’, or save a document in Save As, or if I just close those forms and dialog box without selecting anything, the comments list combobox in the main form (frmTextEdit) gets wiped out.
The frmTextEdit form also appears to close when I close the Save As dialog after clicking ‘Save List’ or ‘Create list’. Stepping through the code, Initialize is not run when I reopen this form.
I’ve tried preserving the comments list in an array, or repopulating it from the open Word document; I’ve tried adding doevents; and I’ve tried hiding the other forms instead of closing them, but nothing…

Need a style-based commenting work around for Word.  Something that I can apply to text which will shunt it off the right edge of the page, perhaps just 3 inches wide.  Open to any slick design options, too - like a border if it can be achieved.

Basically, commenting achieved by style.

Challenge I'm having now with Word's built-in commenting is that I've got some long comments in a document, multiple on a single page.  

If they are too near each other they collapse to...one line.

I can rig a Keyboard shortcut to next /previous comment.  But, when the comments are too long, that invokes a separate comment box AND opens the comment in the comments pane.  So, then I have

Document Text : Comment Scroller : Comment Pane + truncated comment

There are myriad other challenges with Word's commenting features: timestamps, font sizes, etc.

Easier for me just to have the comments there at the right side of the page with the text spilling around it like an image / text box.

Any ideas - I'm open to all possibilities.

Sincerely,

OT
