Office and productivity software is virtually any application people use to "produce" information. That includes almost any program used to create or modify a document, image, audio or video clip. However, business application suites such as Microsoft Office, which include word processing, spreadsheet and presentation programs, are typically called productivity software, as contrasted with a "utility program," such as a file manager, which is used to organize files and folders on the computer. Many office- and business-oriented groups of programs are organized into suites.

I should have the option:

"Under Picture Tools, on the Format tab, in the Adjust group, click Compress Pictures."

Is this not supported on Word 2017 Mac?

I need to compress the images.

I have a requirement to develop a solution to enable the administrator to set edit permissions on Ms Word based on the user logged on.

The solution will be hosted by SharePoint 2013 using Office Co authoring. The document must be edited by many users at the same time and each user must only edit the section the admins have configured the user to edit.

Does anyone have any idea how to allow the administrator to set the permissions? Then dynamically disable/enable controls based on template name and user logon on MS Word 2016 using JavaScript API for Word.

The client does not want to use the option available out of the box to restrict edit using passwords because it is easy to crack the password.

I have looked at the link below but my problem is to disable/enable the controls dynamically without hard cording the controls or users.

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

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.

Dear Google Calendar Web Client,

I really like that you provide notifications to remind me when I've got a meeting in 10 minutes. I really don't like when you seize control of my browser and switch what tab I'm on to give me this reminder, specially when I'm in the middle of typing something and suddenly I've got a half formed sentence on some other window somewhere and I need to spend the next 5 minutes getting back to it and finishing my thought...

Why can't you offer up a browser notification instead?! Or is there a way to have you do that now that I just don't know about?

OMG! Yes! Thank you Craig! I remember some time long ago looking for something like that and it must not have existed yet... So I've just sort of lived with it being that way. Glad I decided to rant about this ;-)

I need to:

- add an image
- make changes to that image, like adding markers, lines, notes and labels

But I need to be able to move them and update them in subsequent sessions.

Obviously, the JPG (or other format) would be the format for output, but a Gimp file format must retain these object details in the file itself so they can be saved, then updated.


How do I do this with Gimp for Mac?

Hi, i've been using Trello a lot lately and i'm considering moving everything over from Evernote to Trello. Like many others on here, productivity and organisation are key to me.

While there is no right or wrong answer to my question(s), I would like to hear what other people's thoughts and setup are, in relation tot he following:

01 - when you have a list of items or tasks... how do you define whether you should add them as 'multiple cards on a list' or 'add all of the items as a checklist to one card' :-)

02 - has anyone else moved their notes from Evernote to Trello... how did you find the change?

03 - any regrets or dislikes with Trello

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have a Mac and need a basic image editing tool, bot not as basic as PaintBrush.

I need to ad line and text and various elements, and have the ability to change them later. I find I cannot edit a "flat image file" because I am limited to undo, and can not save the file and edit it later.

Why options do I have? I want a quick learning curve and hope I do not need some expensive tool.

I know for $29/month I can get an online license to Adobe, which totals $360/year! But I may consider that service for a few months IF it has tools I can use.

Thanks.

I plan to release a book on PDF, at first. That's before I think about a printed version and before I invest in any particular platform.

1) On what devices will PDF not functionally work?
2) On what devices will PDF not work in practical terms?

I am most interested in making it available on many platforms, then I will be interested in offering it in the preferred technologies for certain platforms.

I would later consider a tool like Xamarin for cross-platform development. I will avoid native apps...

Thanks

Hi,

I have been using Excel (Google Sheets) to manage my accounts / balance sheet for the last number of years.

- income with Tax breakdown on the left
- expenses with Tax breakdown on the right
- totals at the bottom

It works well for me, however I'm slightly concerned over how easy it is to update a cell in error with '10' vs '10000' without recognising it.

Can anyone recommend any software that provides the following:

- easy interface
- export for backup
- ability to duplicate line items (recurring expenses and income) so that when a recurring payment lands in my bank account, i can duplicate a previous record and update the date
- add note to each line item

Additional Benefits
- app
- receipt management

Thanks in advance for your help.

currently the email accounts are setup with IMAP/POP3 on Outlook. Mircrosoft office is using the one time paid off licenses, not Office 365 licenses. Is there any workarounds or 3rd parties software that can integrate with the email accounts for shared calendars?

Hi.

I'm proposing a consulting engagement for a client with a proprietary project, which requires that I keep the project's work away from the Internet, due to confidentiality requirements.

I have two windows 10 computers (always updated) that I use on the Internet, and do not want to use any of them for this purpose. I'm thinking of buying a new laptop computer to be used exclusively for the new project.  I use McAfee Total Protection, Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro, and Epic Privacy Browser (proxy mode) on the two computers connected to the Internet.  

I'd prefer to use Microsoft Word and Excel, though I'm not attached to Microsoft products. I'll also need some specialty software (such as 3-D illustration software, and flowchart software), all of which I hope to load via CD/DVD, or transfer the downloaded installation files via flash drive from one of my online computers.

I will create, update, encrypt and store all the proprietary information files on flash drives that will never be inserted, if or when the new computer needs to connect to the Internet.

What what do you think of this strategy for keeping the proprietary project information secure?

Thanks

Hi,

I have one main Google calendar, however I work with a few different companies, and have a company email address and calendar for each of them too.

It's impossible to try and keep up to date with all 4 calendars:

Calendar 01 - my main calendar, inc. personal items
Calendar 02 - Company A
Calendar 03 - Company B
Calendar 04 - Company C

Problems
01 - I would just like to use Calendar 01 however I don't want to give my personal email address to the other 3 companies
02 - I need the other 3 companies to be able to see my main Calendar 01

Is it possible to link all 4 google calendars up, given that they are all on 4 different email addresses and that I don't want to use my personal email address for the 3 companies?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I want to create  3x custom checklists.  I want a master list of questions from which the 3x checklists will pull from.

Basically I have a 3 lists of procedures/checklists that need to use for about 25 different clients.
1st list will be used for all clients
2nd list will be additional items to the 1st checklist but used for a subset of the clients
3rd list will be addition items to the 2nd checklist and used for another subset of clients.

The questions will be updated regularly.

The checklists will need to be filled out on a computer, I would like radio buttons, checkboxes and pull down lists available to help fill the answers to the questions.

What is the best Microsoft program to do this?
