Style Shortcuts and Lost Functionality by
I'm using Word XP. I got clever and changed shortcuts for two styles: Emphasis style -- Ctrl + i Strong style -- Ctrl + b Very nice. Now I'm no longer ever doing direct formatting. HOWEVER, when I use Find/Replace, I can no longer search for bolded or italic text. The shortcuts won't...

Random Lines by
I'm using Word 2002. I've OCR'd a long text and am cleaning it up. There are lines here and there. They are not graphical lines. They are not underlines or text-created lines. They are the lines that when highlighted, show a colored round "handle" at each end. There are hundreds of them. ...

Template & unwanted "properties" by
I made a letterhead template. I opened "Properties" and cleaned out everything. But One property won't go away -- CONTENTS. It has a phrase in it. Each time I save a document from this template, it tries to save under the first few words of the phrase in CONTENTS. How do I kill that...

Zero Width Space by
I've heard there is such a creature -- lets you use a slash, but lets the work break at the right margin. So typing "petitioner/respondent" can do a line break thusly: * * * petitioner/ respondent * * * In Word 2000, how do I get a zero-width space? *(((({

Continuous Break - isn't continuous by
I'm inserting Section breaks in order to force footnote numbering to restart at 1 "one". The section breaks often occur in the middle of a page. I specify a continuous section break. But Word 2000 takes me to a new page anyway! How do I get a truly "continuous" section break that will let me...

OK folks. I'm using Word 2000 and I'm a happy camper. The school recently installed Word 2003. When I open my documents son the school's computers, all hell breaks loose. Of course, I have to put up with the annoying settings of the school's program, since they have not turned off the squiggly...

I'm using Word XP. I like to set the Options to turn off most of the bells and whistles. My options aren't sticking. They used to stick. I recall that Acrobat once interfered with Word 2000 in that fashion. Acrobat doesn't seem to be the culprit here -- Word & Acrobat have been playing...
