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.

My window looks thusly:

Or that's what I think the issue is. When using Excel I see this message. The file is stored on my OneDrive account.

Error message from Excel
When I try and log into 365 to satiate the nag screen with my Office 365 accouint, from which this version of Office Premium was downloaded and installed,  I get this message.

Error message when you legitimately log into 365...
I can access the OneDrive account perfectly otherwise.

What's the solution?

I have a Word doc that's 258MB and when I Save As a PDF it gets inflated to over 700 MB. But, I had someone help me with the layout and that person exports to PDF where the file size is about 6 MB.

What's going on?

How can that be?

Thanks.

When I use Save As PDF I get this error on many sections and have clicked Yes, since this is a trial run. But I hope to create a printable book version very soon.

How do I find the spots which are outside the printable areas?

Margin error
Also, how can I navigate inside Word to a given Section? The error references a specific section.

Thanks

I have a Word Document for my book and need to tweak the style of the pages on the left side versus the right side uniquely.

I have odd number pages appearing on the right, so the start of the chapter, as well as page 1, are on the right side. The binding means those pages require a bit more left margin than they need on the right margin. Opposite constraints needed for even number pages.

How do I configure this?

Thanks

I'm looking for a URL to download Office 2016 Professional Plus (from the Volume License Service Center).

A customer has provided me with an Office 2016 Professional Plus Volume License Service Center activation key and needs this product installed on several computers.

The problem is that while I have been able to download and install Office 2016 Professional Plus from the Microsoft website when I try to activate it using this VLSC product number activation key I receive the error message shown in the screenshot "This product key is for the volume-licensed version of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016, which isn't currently installed. To use this product key, contact your administrator." (see the screenshot--The product key has been whited out).

So please provide me with a URL address of where I can download the Office 2016 Professional Plus (from the Volume License Service Center).

A non Microsoft URL will be fine.

Please provide me with a URL address to download Office 2016 Professional Plus from the Microsoft website.

I currently don't have the logon information for download this product from the Microsoft VLSC website, I only have the product number activation key.

I am not sure why my resume was formatted to have such crazy sections containing parts of the text.

I just want it to be one large text field...

broken up text
Is there an easy way to fix this?

I am updating an old resume and found I needed to remove a logo from the footer.

Footer with logo
But I do not think it's part of the Footer, per say. I notice the logo prints on alternate sides of the page. And when I open the Footer menu, that logo image file is not there.

How do I remove this from the bottom of all pages?

I am considering a small mass emailing to promote my new book. But I do not have the technology yet to validate who has opened the email and who has not.

I once use MailGun and found that had a great technology for that kind of validation.

Does anyone have suggestions about what other things are important when validating the response rates from a mass mailing?

I need to track:
- conversion rate of a purchase, based upon the number who saw the email
- I need to know who saw the email so I could consider sending it a second time to those who did not see it the first time

What else?

What tools exist? Free is better.

I am considering Zoho because of its ability to trace whether the email was opened.

Suggestions?

Word Mac Version 15.38

I have a large image that can fit on one page, but is wider than it is tall. I'd like to configure Word to rotate it clockwise 90 degrees.

How?

I need a program to run on the Mac where I can make flowcharts. I do not have time to be involved with laying them out, like with PhotoShop. I need to added text to a node and connect it to other nodes. I need to add titles and bullet points anywhere I want them inside or outside a node.

Does this program exist?

I need to adjust the height of the canvas.

How do I do that?

I can center a box at the center of the canvas, but that was an exercise. I really ned to center a bung of boxes along the centerline.

I also ned to select an individual box so I can move it up to down to align it visually to the place I want it.

Thanks.

I added this box an see how I can change its size an location on the right side controls.

How do I just center the box on the centerline of the page?

I do not want to restart my license for Adobe Acrobat Pro to make one small change. I added the PDFFiller plug-in to Chrome, but have trouble editing some text.

Should PDFFiller work for me?

If not, what other tool can I use?

I do have a license for PhotoShop CC, however. Can that do it?

Thanks

I create my PDF's using Word and that is my "source" version of the document.

I need to enable the PDF user to click a link on the PDF and jump to the next spot on that same PDF. How do I do this?

Does this mean I should add a Bookmarks to each destination in thePDF?

And, is there a "Back" button, to enable the PDF user to easily drop back to the prior spot? If so, how do I make that work?

Thanks

I have a pretty GIF file I placed into my PDF. Is there any way that GIF can be animated in the PDF?

I have the GIF hosted on my site, if that helps at all.

Worst case, I can have them click the image, which will open a browser to the animated version...

Thanks

I'm looking for a better task management solution. I could use some suggestions based on my requirements.

requirements in order of importance, top 6 are a must
  1. -has web/PC app and mobile (Android) app, data being synchronized
  2. -tasks can have due dates
  3. -can associate with "note to self" directive on Android, so I can say "OK Google, note to self, buy birthday cards" and it will make a new task for me hands-free
  4. -can search text contents on mobile and on PC
  5. -has some way of categorizing tasks (lists, categories, folders)
  6. -paste images from clipboard into a task
  7. -attach files to a task
  8. -keyboard shortcuts on PC to create and edit tasks
  9. -can create sub-tasks or related (e.g. "is-blocked-by") tasks
  10. -tasks have priorities (normal,high,etc.)
  11. -tasks can have reminders/alerts at least in the Android app
  12. -can be target of share on Android, e.g. a text message, a URL, or an image can feed into the app and becomes a task
  13. -can easily transfer my existing tasks from Google Tasks
  14. -can share one of the task lists/categories with another person

current situation
I'm currently using GTasks on Android and a Chrome extension (Better Google Tasks), which essentially repackages mail.google.com. This solution has much of the above, but the web interface is clunky and I'm really missing the ability to paste images.

which one?
I've read these are popular and good, but that's a lot to test every one of them. Any suggestions?
  • any.do
  • evernote
  • google keep
  • remember the milk
  • TickTick
  • todoist

Hi,

I just inherited a new client and put in  shadow copies and proper backups 9/8/17.

They have a XLXS document that was last modified on 8/23/17 and they are trying to access it today. However they get an error "Excel cannot open file 'file.xlsx' because file format or extension is not valid". This is happening on all the computers not just 1

I can not restore this file from backups because I just put them in and my shadow copies do not go back that far.

I have tried:
1. Renaming the file to xls - it does not work it just opens a blank excel doc
2. Repairing the document in excel- Does not work
3. Adding the network location to the trusted trust center
4. Copying it to a local C drive - Does not work, same error
5. Disabling hardware graphics acceleration
6. Making sure the xlsx is associated to excel in default programs
7. Checked Ignore other applications that use Dynamic Data (DDE)

I feel like I fixed this before with a reg key.

Can someone please help. This is a very important document for my client. If there is a software that will fix it I am open to purchasing.
