Forms & Tables Help Needed by
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

Word 2003 messes up my page numbering by
I use Word 2000. I saved a document onto my USB drive. I went to school, plugged in the USB, and opened the document. The school computers have Word 2003 on them. I worked on the document. When it was finished, I inserted page numbers into the footer. Instead of numbering the pages from...

Can't get Options to Stick by
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...

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...

BOLD has gone wild! by
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...

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...

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! *(((({
