Word Processors

A word processor is an electronic device or computer software application that performs the task of composition, editing, formatting, and sometimes printing of documents. Most modern word processors use a graphical user interface, and most are powerful systems consisting of one or more programs that can produce any arbitrary combination of images, graphics and text, the latter handled with type-setting capability. Typical features of a modern word processor include font application, spell checking, grammar checking, a built-in thesaurus, automatic text correction, Web integration, and HTML exporting, among others.

My OS is win 10 pro 64 bit, and I use word 2016.  I am typing a lengthy document and would like to do a table of contents.  How do I set this up.  At the moment I am typing the headings on a different line of its own, eg :
        BG Ch. 1, Text 25
which is a predefined style.
Please let me know if there are any links for a step by step guidance.  Thank u.

If I am right, the Index is the part which lists names, places and topics and shows the pages on which the are referenced.

Correct?

How do I auto create this in Word 2011 (for Mac)?

Thanks

I plan to use Word 2011 to create my book, using a reduced page size and Times New Roman (11 point). I will output to a PDF then give to printer to print. But I need to add a TOC and also need a decent looking chapter heading.

How do I create a TOC automatically and can someone provide me a decent looking formatting (in Word) for a start of the chapter?

Same true for the cover page.

As fas as the ISBN number, should that also be printed into the book? What stuff should the cover page include?

Title
Author
Copyright notice
ISBN number?

What else?

I plan to publish a 5.5" x 8.5" book as soon as next week, but need to decide on the font and point size.

I would like the book to be readable by seniors and would like a font that's a bit larger than conventional. I do not mean to make it the size of the Reader's Digest Large Type edition, but somewhere between conventional size and that.

What font do you suggest for easy readability and what point size to be more welcoming of people who may need reading glasses but do not have them handy.

Thanks.

I plan to write a 5.5" x 8.5" book with a perfect binding. I've been told by the printer not to waste my time using Word, due to frequent font incompatibilities, and instead use PDF. So please advise me how to go forward.

I have:
Word 2011 (Mac)
LibreOffice
Foxit Reader

What shall I use to generate the document? I need this before I write the book so I can estimate how many words in a page.

What font do I use? I prefer to be slightly larger than than used typically. I am not trying to save pages and if anything am trying to  make the book long enough for a perfect binding page count minimum. Also, as someone who needs reading glasses, wold prefer if elderly people cam read it easily.

I am not talking about making it like the Readers Digest with huge text is, but large enough that most people can read it.

So, what tool do I use? And how do I set the settings for a 5.5" x 8.5" book?

I also hope to create an index with an automated tool.

Possible?

Thanks

Here's the problem:
1.  I use the mailings tab and start the merge wizard.
2.  I choose the labels option button
3.  I choose Avery 5160 label manual feed
4.  Table gets created on my document
5.  I select USE EXISTING LIST recipients from an EXCEL worksheet with headers
6. I choose all recipients
7. I choose next "arrange your labels.
8.  All fields are correct.
9.  I choose UPDATE ALL LABELS
10.  I choose PREVIEW
11.  I choose complete my merge.
PROLBEM:  I only get one page of lablels!  Yet I have hundreds of names I need merged.  I need Word to create the additional pages of addresses..

SAME THING HAPPENS WHEN I want to generate a bunch of merge envelopes.  only one envelope gets created.

I have made a translation in MS Word which is coming into paragraphs and which I have converted into a .TXT file. Now I need to import the same into a program called Media Subtitler but when I do so it fits each paragraph in a single line, which is not what I want. What I was wondering is if there was a method to automatically restrict each line within a number of characters (respecting the entire words). If someone can come up with a method I'd be quite appreciative as it would save me considerable work. Many thanks.

Wore 2007. Is it possible to highlight all superscript numbers in a document? Footnote or Endnote numbers entered manually
0
Background

I have a large (279 page) document which has numbered and nested headings (i.e. '15.6' to '21.4.5.18')

Situation

When I either open the Print view form Backstage or highlight everything and press F9, both of which update all field values in the document, sections at the bottom of the document are moved to the top were they appear to be 'inserted' under other sections and the numbering / headings are jumbled.

(Unfortunately for confidentiality reasons I cannot post the actual document)

NOTE: This happens even when the contents are copied to an entirely new document and saved.

Question

How can I resolve this and stop it from happening ?

Has anyone had such a severe issue before ?

i am doing a up grade to WP x7 from wpx4 and want to save the custom WP templates to a network share with the user name  so if the upgrade does not keep existing settings i can copy them back in.

SO: xcopy c:\users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Corel\PerfectExpert\14\EN\Custom WP Templates\*.* to N:\(username)\*.*

This is where N:\(username) is not created until the script runs if there is not one already created.

i will add the script to the login script.

Thanks.

I have a Word document in 2013 format (DOCX). Last year, when it was a DOC file I set two passwords.
1. For viewing
2. For editing.

I now need to remove both passwords. I was able to turn off the viewing password by going to FILE --> PROTECT DOCUMENT --> ENCRYPT WITH PASSWORD.

However, I cannot find how to remove the editing p/w. I tried going to FILE --> PROTECT DOCUMENT --> RESTRICT EDITING, but there is no option that I see that can help.

Please advise.
Thanks,
Steve

Hi All!

I'm working with Hyperlinks in Word.  Anyone know where the information for the Browsed Pages or the Address line MRU list is stored?  Mine is blank!  We are using Word 2010 SP2 and IE 11 on a Windows 7 box.

I've been searching and I can't seem to find a setting or reg key that controls this area.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I like the feature where typing:

====

auto generates a line which spans the width of the page. But like with all automation, what can go wrong, does.

I find it so difficult to remove these lines.

Please explain how.

Thanks.

Hi Experts,

I am creating my first mail merge template in word 2003.

when you select a template while going through the motions of creating a mail merge you are greeted with this screen:

ExE.PNG
where are these templates saved on the local PC? only because if I set this up for 5-10 users then it would be easier to copy the templates every team should be using to the location which word looks at rather than recreating these templates on each PC.

any questions let me know,

Hi, I've been trying to recover these files for days and I have gotten absolutely nowhere.

First of all, these are files from late last year and earlier this year my Macbook Pro crashed. I was able to recover most of the documents with Stellar Phoenix however some of them seem too corrupt to repair.

The main problem: When I try to open these .DOCX files on Mac OS X Snow leopard in word, text edit or open office all I get is a bunch of symbols eg. "]≥D@]≥<@]≥4@]≥,@]≥$@]≥@]≥@]≥"


Before it opens in Microsoft Word (2011) the 'Convert File' window pops up and I proceed to the option 'recover text from any file'.
The document then opens in compatibility mode and with a compatibility check it displays the following errors:
 "1. Word 6.0/95 compatibility options are set
  2. This document displays unicode characters that might not display correctly in earlier versions of office."

When I change the compatibility preferences there is no difference to the text and the second, unicode error persists.
From here when I try to 'Save as' it automatically tries to save it as a '.Doc' file, not '.Docx'.

I have tried a few different things such as putting the files on to a Windows computer, zipping and unzipping to view the . XML content which didn't work but I am an amateur Windows user so I could have gone wrong. I have tried converting it to an RTF, no luck. And I have tried downloading an XML editor but it is beyond me.

Any suggestions? How do you know if …

I have a Word doc I will export to PDF. But I hope I can password protect it.

Is this possible with Word?

Can another program do it?

If so, got any freebees?? ;)

Thanks.

Hi Experts,

please see attached image - why is my document only displaying parts of the page that I have written on? I want it to display the entire page regardless if content is on the page. for example if I go page preview I see the entire page.

We created a QR Code to direct consumers to a "find the right fit" website, for our product. We created it via a 3rd party provider. Months later, we the were notified that we are infringing on a NEOMEDIA patent. The process we are infringing on is the "redirect", where once the scan is performed, it is tallied on a host site, then redirected to our site.  NEOMEDIA says we need to pay for that, they own the redirect "process".

My question is...does anyone know how I can create a QR code, that goes directly to the URL I define, without a redirect, that I do not have to license or worry about getting sued over ?  Seems easy, I know...but I just want to be 100% sure I am safe.  I'd appreciate any advice in the matter.

Hello,

Is there a way to define custom pronunciation or change existing pronunciation for specific words in MS Office (2010 & 2013) text-to-speech (TTS)?

With the exception of Excel, MS Office (2010 & 2013) apps come with a built-in TTS function. It can be activated by first adding the "Speak selected text" shortcut icon to the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT) and then, after selecting the text to be spoken, clicking that icon.

I have found that it works pretty well — certainly well enough for a listener to understand the basic gist or content contained in whatever selected text is being read. However, when confronted with certain specific words or phrases  — particularly those which are probably not in its original vocabulary — TTS offers its best guess at the correct pronunciation but, not infrequently, gets it wrong.

Is there any way to access the MS Office TTS vocabulary (either through a user-interface settings box somewhere or by the use of VBA) in order to define correct pronunciation for words which it currently mispronounces?

Thanks
