Office / Productivity

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

What is the command line command or method I can use to be prompted to choose which Outlook email profile I want to load when Outlook starts up?

I don't want to be prompted to choose an Outlook profile every time I start Outlook; I just want to be able to start Outlook and be prompted by running Outlook.exe with the right command line switch or by using a method other than using the Prompt for profile option within the mail applet in Control Panel.

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??

I have a book coming out in digital media and need fonts, point sizes, stylings, etc.

for :

Chapter Name
Section Name
Paragraph text

and whatever else I may be forgetting.

This needs to be readable, on portable devices also.

What do you suggest?

It will be Word (2017) saving as a Docx, but I need to SaveAs PDF.

What is the cheapest Office 365 subscription that includes full access to the Office 2016 suite of software (Word, Outlook, Excel, PowerPoint, etc).?

Does this subscription also include an email address? Or how much more is it to add an email address to this subscription? Will this be an E1, E2, or E3 email address subscription?

Latest version of Win 10 Pro running on Surface Pro 4.

I did a full OS reset to rule out a virus or some weird OS corruption, but again when I click on an open program on the taskbar instead of opening that active window it opens another instance i.e another Firefox window or Excel sheet. Temp fix is to reboot and it may be good for like 10-15 and the it start happening again. The mouse seems to be erratic but even if my surface does not have any peripherals connected it does the same thing

Any idea what this could be?

A few end users are reporting that when they try to search for an email, they get a message that Outlook is still indexing. This is a newer problem that started the last week of June, first week of July. We're suspecting it might be caused by another Microsoft Update that went wrong but cannot fully support that theory. This is not tied to a specific OS as we have reports from both Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 Pro users.
We have a hybrid Exchange environment, hosting our own on-prem Exchange 2010 server and using Microsoft Office 2010 while our Archives are hosted through Microsoft. Logging on to our webmail the searches do complete without any hiccups.
So far on one affected user (since we don't know the root cause yet) we have rebuilt the Outlook index, recreated the Outlook profile, restarted the indexing service, moved indexing store location, and moved this user out of cached mode. The only thing for this end user that has worked thus far is taking them off of cached mode. We know this is only a temporary band aid and a solution is out there somewhere, we just haven't found it yet so we are reaching out to see if anyone else has been experiencing this sudden oddity and if so, has anyone found the resolve?

Thank you in advance,

My book looks like it will be in excess of 2GB. There are so many images and I have yet to do image compression. That will reduce the size enormously.

But at the same time, I am sad to take out great photo resolution and replace that.

What is the "damage" of having a high resolution high file size PDF download?

Curious to her of anyone with any negative experience with a large PDF.

Hi,

Does anyone have any tools that exports / backups your entire Trello account / boards.

I know the Business Class provides backup but it's one board at a time. I have over 70 boards so it's a little time consuming to backup each month.

Thank you in advance for your help.

"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.

http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/8ea152/set-and-remove-editing-restrictions-in-word-2013-documents/

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.

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.
