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 really do not want to upload my Word doc to Miscosoft.com just to convert it to a PDF.

My Word (for Mac) 2011 fails when I try and use the Print > PDF  Save As feature.

When I use Word (for Mac) 2017 it requires some online conversion, so I abort it.

Do I have any options?

Thanks

My old version of Mac Word (2011) allowed me to highlight the text, then click a sample font, which i used for heading styles.

When I create a Table of Contents, these styles were key.

How do I do this with my new version of Word?

Thanks

Hi Experts!

I did search here but didn't find this. I have two two-dimensional arrays (extracted from tables in Word docs), ARRAY1(0 to 100) and ARRAY2(0 to 300). Can I create an ARRAY3(0 to 300?) that only has those elements in ARRAY2 which are not in ARRAY1?

Thanks!

I had this question after viewing VBA to change source of links in PowerPoint.

I tried this code in PowerPoint 2013 but it doesn't seem to word there, any suggestion of how can we link all the links to a different Excel file or folder?

I am convinced there will be a special "ring in hell" for whoever is responsible for the header and footer layout in Word. Why can't there be a Section - LAST page break that ends the document without destroying headers and footer prior to that point?

I have a letter in Word that on the last page as the final entry is a Section - Page Break.

The document contains a header which has

Page X or Y

There is an errand line after the Section - Page Break forcing the document to have one more page than necessary. If you delete the Section - Page Break to delete the line, you lose the Header all the way back to Page Two.

I have attached the file. I know someone is going to easily fix this problem. Please carefully explain how to fix the problem so I can fix it myself next time.

Does autosave in Word, Excel or any other app overwrite the original file?  Say you have a doc open for a day or two and the file is backed up during those tow days does autosave overwrite the original file?
Hope this isn't too confusing.

Hi,

I'm getting up to speed with using SnagIt for screen captures. I'm trying to add a text box with an arrow pointing to a component of the screenshot.

While I can type text into a whitespace area of the screenshot, it displays w/o a border.  So, I need to figure out how to add the border. If SnagIt could do it automatically, like MS Word does for text boxes, that would be great. In addition, what's the best way to add a red arrow?

Thanks,
Steve

How to save the Roboto Cn font on MS Word and PPT?

Word 2013. My client has documents with tables in them, sometimes more than 1 table per document. The first row of the table is formatted with a shade color (green). I want a macro to change that to a different color (Word's shading option identifies the color I want as RGB: 242, 242, 242.) Word will not allow me to click table properties when recording a macro. So I'm stuck.

I'd like to be able to load the document and execute a macro which would change all the tables at once. Or, one at a time, let the user select the cells, and execute a macro to change the shading.

How can I do this?

Thanks much.

Using MS Word, I want to find certain unique strings with no attached character style. For example, a given text may have the name “Claude” in several places. My goal is to mark most (but not all) of those occurrences with a certain character style I have defined, for example a style called “Person.”
      How can I use the Find command to search for any occurrence of that name, “Claude” without any style attached to the string? Once I find such an occurrence, I can then decide whether to add the style.
      I tried searching for “Claude” specifying the machine should search for a whole word only and respect capitalization. That did not work, for the computer highlighted “Claude” with the “Person” style attached.
      I think this is an easy problem, but it is way above my pay scale.
      Thanks!

I am writing a lengthy book but want to make it easier for readers by breaking it up into

Sections
Chapters
Sub-Chapters sections

Can this be done in a PDF besides by just changing the headings?

I would love to see a panel on the left side which shows a node list of these, somewhat like Windows Explorer or Mac Finder.

Is this possible? If so, does it place limits on which readers can open the file?

I am writing it in Word and will use Adobe Acrobat to export Word to PDF.

Thanks.

Word 2013 had been working fine. Recently it stopped updating links (TOC, field codes such as page#). I checked Options/Advanced/General/
Update automatic links... (which was checked) The mouseover tip says "This option is not available for the view that your current document is in."

References/Update Table does not correct the problem.

For instance, TOC shows as
{TOC\show, "1-2"...}

I have not changed the view. It is edit, print layout, 100%. When I switch to Read Mode, the links show properly.

When I copy the link and paste to a new word doc, it shows only the link code. When I copy the link and paste into WordPad, it shows the TOC properly.

This is true for all docx files that have TOC, etc. links.

As far as I know, I have not changed any other Word settings.

Could this possibly be due to a recent Windows update?

If not, what could it be, and how do I fix it?

Thanks,

I've been using this printer for a long time and rarely have problems with it.
The worst I have to do is tell it what paper is in the Tray 1 feeder.

I am trying to print envelopes from Word 2013.
Well, they print just fine!

But, I have a mail merged word document of nearly 200 envelopes.
I have saved the document so it should now be just a plain Word document with #10 envelope-sized pages.
I have managed to print a few one-off but generally the printer just sits there and says "Ready" and the computer says there are no documents waiting to print.
All I need to do is launch the multi-page print job!!

I do know that there is going to be a message about margins when an envelope print job does work.  But that message isn't popping up on the ones that fail.  A clue?

How?

Just a VBA beginner here... Word 2013; I have a template populated by a 3-page form. I currently gather and post/populate data to the template one form at a time. It works:
    Dim fname As Range
    Set fname = ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("firstname").Range
    fname.Text = Me.fnamebox.Value

But I would rather post/populate all of the fields just once, at the end, when the user clicks an update button. So I moved the code to the 3d page. But the macro does not recognize the last statement. I presume it does not recognize "fnamebox," which is a field on the first page of the form.

I have tried various other combinations (replacing "me" with the form name, and with "activedocument," but I am just fishing. What code do I use to get it to recognize "fnamebox"?

Thanks,
