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 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?

Thanks

A group of people need to amend the same Word file online (on a website).
Then a designated person (admin) will review the doc file and upon approval, it will be exported in pdf format.
It needs to have versioning.
Is there a software/tool that can be used to achieve this except Google Docs?

Hi,

I have a source MS Word 2016 document with pre-defined formatting, style, alignment, numbered list, bulleted list and TOC.

I am using MS Word 2016.

Does MS Word 2016 have any feature to automatically update a target document with the pre-defined formatting, style, alignment, numbered list, bulleted list and TOC from a source document.

Please provide your valuable suggestions.

Regards,
Sriram.

I plan to use some Wikipedia images in a book which I plan to sell. And I need to be sure I am allowed to use these pictures.

Here are two sample images with different license requirements.

How am I required to annotate them? Can I use these for commercial purposes?

Thanks

Using Word 2011 (Mac) and Word 2017 (Mac) under the Insert menu, I find no such feature as the Caption Manager.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

I di not want to keep track of how many images in a chapter and need to renumber them, and all references to them, just because I inserted a new image.

How do I do this?

Can those references be re-calculated if I inserted a new image?

Thanks.

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.

Team,

I need some recommendations for a transcribing software that will transcribe audio files to text. I will like to do this with a purchased software instead of a web service.

Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Thank you.

I just installed Word 2016 along with the whole Office Suite. I had Word 2011 installed and working and printing prior to installation.

After installation neither Word 2011 nor Word 2016 print. I am told "The Printer if offline."

What steps can I follow to get printing again?

Thanks.

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 would import the file into Excel, and it could have three columns:

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.

Background

I have a document which has the 'Heading 1' Style defined using numbering. This allows me to number each heading automatically.

Within each section (between headings) I need to add text and lists

Problem

Whenever I select a list item (who's style is 'Normal') and apply numbering the list items style immediately changes to 'Heading 1' and I get text which is larger and bold and completely messes up the flow of the documents. That is not to mention that each list should start at '1' but when the list item's style jumps to 'Heading 1' the number of that item is the next number after the number of its heading.

NOTE This is not the same as 'Automatically update style' as it is not updating the attributes of the current style but rather automatically changing the style that is applied to the current text.

One one test document I had exactly the same issue appear but on another the issue did not occur. There is no difference I am aware of between them.

Question

How can I prevent this style change when applying numbering ?

I have one Hyperlink that's underlined, has an anchor, and is blue. I want to use the Style Paintbrush to copy that, but it removes the Anchor.

How can I make the hyperlinks all appear blue and have the same font and point size?

Hello All,

I have recently been faced with the challenge of finding an alternative autospellchecker/autocomplete option to the one provided by Microsoft in their Office platform. In particular, the user would like for the spellchecker to automatically fix or suggest words while typing an email in Outlook 2013 -- or at least provide 3 simple suggestions as the IOS does in iPhone text messages.

I've spent quite some time and tested a few products (Global AutoComplete, etc), but cannot seem to find anything as simple and productive as something provided by most native smartphones texting apps.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be grateful.

Thanks in advance. -RAvi

Did you know SD-WANs can improve network connectivity? Check out this webinar to learn how an SD-WAN simplified, one-click tool can help you migrate and manage data in the cloud.

I can't find the answer to this question anywhere.

I know the Control Unit takes the opcode (6-bit field) from the instruction to generate the control signals in the datapath. What I don't understand is how the opcode determines all of the control signals (e.g. MemRead, RedDet, ALUop, MemWrite...)

Please help me understand this since I'm working on an assignment that simulates a processor and a single-cycle datapath (written in C). There is a function where I need to assign values to all the control signals and the only information given is the opcode.

Thanks!

P.S. Do I need to know the opcode for every MIPS instruction in order to know the values of the control signals?

One of my friends asked me to help him publish his book on Amazon. His book is in Pdf format but if I convert to mobi the double letters would be simple e.g. "full" would be "ful".
Will Amazon allow Pdf files or only mobi? I don't know the process. Thank you in advance for your help!

How do I create redirects so that the old urls for a website redirect to new urls?   The pages were renamed and they are also going to be using a new domain name.  The site is in wordpress.

Is there a way in any version of Word to select some text and give it a name so that I can then search for it later. So for instance I go through a document and select different sections - could be snippets, phrases, large chunks.  For each one I select I assign a name - e.g. when I select the first grouping I might choose to identify it as Recipe. The next chunk I choose I might want to name Games.  Then the third chunk I might want to name Recipe again  The fourth could be Furnishings.  The fifth Games again and the 6th Recipe again.  Once I have done this 'tagging' I would want to be able to search through the document for all sections I have marked Recipe - highlight them all or let me flip through them consecutively.

If this is not in Word an add-on that would do it would be ok. If no add-ons and no way to do in Word another Word processor or any editing type of  utility would do.

Please note however I want to highlight/select and name - I don't want to be creating markers for the beginning and end of a chunk and then somehow giving a 'name' to the stuff inbetween.

For Win10

Hello,

I am looking for free software that will provide a report on how many times each word appears in a manuscript. e.g.
"the" 100
"is"     40
etc.

The file is in Word format but can be converted to PDF. If possible, I would prefer not uploading it to any site on the Web.

For those wondering, I'm trying to identify words that I overuse in my novel. :)

Thanks,
Steve
