Horrible, just Horrible! (Attn: Mr. Kenyon) Word 2003 mucks up my 2000 files! by
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...

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...

I'm using Word 2000. Suddenly, whenever I press Control+B to apply direct formatting, I get a heading style -- sometimes heading 2, 4, or 6. The bolded text then shows up in the document map. I do not want to apply a style. I have confirmed that Control+B is assigned to Bold format. What is...

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...

STOP! background repagination? by
I'm working on some long documents -- 35+ Megs. I'd like to stop the background repagination for a while, until I get the editing and styles done. In the meantime, it just slows me down when I'm doing find/replace. How can I temporarily disable the background repagination? Thanks! *(((({

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...
