Office Productivity

Office Productivity refers both to the act of being productive and efficient in an office or professional environment, as well as the software applications used to "produce" information. This includes the development of professional skills, creating work processes, and 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 have a Mac and mainly use Word 2011 or Mac but also have Word 2017 installed, and ready to use when needed.

I am writing a book and expect to have lots of image, and need a formatting method for the pictures.

For example,
"Image 2.3"

would mean the third image in Chapter 2.

What alternatives are there for this? Does Word handle this automatically? I would hate to need to update this manually, just because I added a new image to the front of the chapter.

Also, what about credits? Where do they go?

I will put references at the end of the book, and would be happy to also put image sources also at the end.

Thanks.

Hi,

I am looking for a product to digitally sign documents.

- documents would be in PDF format and then sent to user to approve, they would sign the document to indicate they approve it and then would email it to the next party that needs to review the same document and they would sign it or "sign off" on it and the document would be complete.

- ideally the document could be shared to the user for them to review and sign so that the owner knows it has been approved before sharing it to another dept/user for further approval or completion.

What kind of product would you recommend for this type of workflow?  PDFs are currently used but there is not digital signature in place yet.

Has anyone used "DocuSign Business Pro Edition" ?

Thanks,

My client maintains two calendars; his work calendar, in his Office 365 mailbox and his family calendar, in GMail. His wife shares access to the Gmail calendar using the web browser on her computer.

Today we found that somtime in the last 24 hours, a recurring meeting on his Office 365 mailbox moved by itself over to the Gmail calender - it was removed from his O365 calendar and appeared on his Gmail calendar. He says he didn't move it.

His iPhone is configured in the native calendar client to view both calendars, and I know that with the Calendar client you can change calendars for an event. Has anyone encountered this where the iPhone or another iOS device seems to do this by itself?

I bought the $9.99/month license so that I could run Word 2016 on my Mac, so I could use collapsable regions.

Do they exist?

If so, how the heck does it work?

In Windows, it's super simple.

Thanks.

I never used VBA before but need to execute the following script.

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28970468/Software-to-count-how-many-instances-of-words.html#a41802442

But I do not even need the count, I just want a list of words I can paste into Excel.

How do I execute the script in Mac Word 2011?

Thanks

I am a developer and love Git. But I am writing a book and rely on Word. But Word files and Git are oil and water, since it can easily mangle the file and render it useless. Right?

How about using an RTF? Is that a format which works with source control?

I am sure a Notepad style of crude editor wold work, but I need some basic styling like font, bold, italics, etc.

What tool can I use on a Mac to write this book? I really want to be able to commit and push revisions and make my incremental changes viewable by me later.

Thanks.

How do I put s footnote, like the following:

  EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG – Paul Revere and the Raiders https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Revere_%26_the_Raiders

into a format that I can put in the References section at the end of my book, or at the end of each chapter?

It's very easy in a PDF format, since the link is Web based. But how about as text?

Thanks.

Have a user that has MAC with OS ver 10.12.2 and Outlook 2011 ver 12.29
The user deleted the profile/identity in Outlook
Obviously now when they open outlook all the mail they had was gone.
Some of the Email Data was contained in the in box other was in its own "Folder" outside of the Inbox (In windows terminology it would have been separate .pst file).

Q1: When you delete a profile in Outlook, does it delete all the mail or are the mail OLM file(s) still on the MAC?

Q2: If they are on the MAC can they be recovered?

Any help would be appreciated.

Are there benefits to upgrading to Microsoft Office 2016 (local version, not 365) on a new Windows 10 64-bit computer with an eight-core processor rather than reinstalling Office Professional 2010 from the old computer?

Office 2010 has all the functionality I need. The collaboration features are not needed. I need Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher.

A primary interest is performance - would Office 2016 provide greater performance? Can it make use of the multiple cores (I believe Office 2010 does not)? Is the 64-bit version worth using with this version?

In case it is relevant, the computer will be a Dell Precision Workstation 5810 with these parameters:

* Windows 10 64-bit Pro
* Xeon E5-1660 v4 (8 cores, 3.2GHz, 3.8GHz Turbo, 2400MHz)
* 64GB RAM
* m.2 PCIe drives: 512GB system, 512GB or 1TB data
* NVIDIA® Quadro® M4000 8GB

Thanks,
Pete

Hi, for some strange reason we just can't seem to locate an actual Microsoft download of OneNote 2016 (or latest version) of the software.  All links we found are from other website not from Microsoft.  Our free version was download previously from Microsoft site but we can't seem to locate it.  Please provide the download link.

Thanx you.

A user just reloaded the Win 7 OS and Office 2013 (an Office 365 subscription) on his computer.

The problem is that now the Outlook 2013 email auto complete list (the complete email addresses that appear within the Outlook address bar after the first few letters of an email address are typed) are gone.

What is the best method to restore this Outlook 2013 auto complete email address list?

The previous OS and Outlook 2013 are still present on the secondary hard drive of this computer so all previous data and program files can still be accessed.

Please provide me with the steps on how to do this.

Have a great day!

Hi

I’m searching a good service that can convert PDF to OCR. It would be a plus if we can rotate image.

I found these services:
http://www.newocr.com/
http://www.onlineocr.net/
http://www.ocrconvert.com/

But the above services are not satisfying my customer. Do you know other better free Tool’s or free online service’s?

Sample file:

Many thanks in advance.

I'm volunteering with an organization that requires that each chapter submit a yearly report - except it's a hard copy form that I'd much rather fill out electronically, print and then submit (I'll be responsible for doing this form for the next 3+ years, with only minimal changes to the report from year to year).  

Looking for suggestions on low/no-cost ways to perhaps take a picture of form and convert it to a fillable form.  I've attached a picture of the front and back side of the form.

Thanks, and Happy New Year!
