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 use Word for Mac 2017 and export to PDF using

File > Print > PDF > Save As...

The file created is fine.

But Word also has an online conversion.

Is there ay benefit to use the online version? I prefer privacy and to do the conversion locally, but would consider doing it online if there were a benefit.

Thanks.

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.

Thanks

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?

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.

I need to create the first version of my book only using a PDF, with customer versions to follow. So I need to know the things I can make with Word, that are also supported on PDF.

Table of Contents?
Index?
Glossary?
Back Panel of book?
Inserts?

Is there a standard way to enable a PDF to have chapters that are collapsable?

Any other easy to get cool features that I cold make in Word?

Thanks

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.

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