KILLING off the Fax Cover Sheet by
I'm using Word 2000 on XP Home. When I send a fax, the Fax Wizard opens up and wants me to choose a custom coversheet. I do not want that option. The reason is that even when I click NO, I wind up with extra files and folders in my Documents. I have a Fax Template in Word that I use. How can I...

Hi Margaret, Good answers. In making a "form template" I don't want to set the size or position of the tables. Perhaps I wasn't clear about what I'm hoping to accomplish. I want the default for tables to be: no borders float font size and placement

??? What's the point to Word 2003? by
Good lord -- can't we ever get to a point where we can leave well enough alone? What is the point to Word XP, and now Word 2003? Word 2000 works just fine. As far as I can tell, these newer versions just have more garbage you have to turn off in order to keep Word working for you, not...

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...

I'm using Word 2000. What's the difference between Italic direct formatting, and Italic styles? I have set up a character style for italic. When I insert a document, some of the italicized words update to match my custom italic style. Others do not -- they show up as style "normal." I have...

Determine if the total # of pages is ODD or EVEN by
Is it possible to use field codes to determine if the document has an odd or even number of pages? I have a couple of long-winded reasons for asking - but this is essentially what I need to know, if anyone has any thoughts. I just can't figure it out. Thanks.

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...
