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. ...

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...

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...

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.

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! *(((({
