It has been my experience that corrupted documents can be successfully decoded by Google Docs and the original text will be revealed in Google Docs. Then you can export the recovered document back to your computer in a common format like .doc format. Another trick that might help is to convert the document to an open format and extract the content.xml file ...

How about a VBA solution? This will copy all the select from the top left selected cell to the bottom right selected cell. If you select incongruous cells, this code will collected everything in between the top left and bottom right anyway. You can change that, of course. It was just easier this way. It puts tabs between the columns and line breaks between ...

While I agree that this is a security issue, and one I was unaware of also, I would like to add to the list of workarounds already provided, as I doubt there is registry setting (or similar) to change this behaviour: Hold down Alt when you are using Prnt Scrn, if it is entire window contents you just want to capture. ...Or, if you need free-form control ...

It's not really a flaw, that's just the way these presentation software work so you can adjust things easily (without reloading the original image each time you make a change). What about cropping the image in an image editor first? That way you know that other data is gone from the file, and it makes your resulting PowerPoint Presentation or Word Document ...

Source: Crop a picture or a shape with a picture fill: Delete cropped areas of picture Even after you crop parts of a picture, the cropped parts remain as part of the picture file.

Unfortunately not. The drawing happens over the image and isn't linked. The same is true of other drawing as well. It is frustrating that you cannot link a line to a text box for example. That's one of the minor annoyances of an otherwise great product. You cannot group things either. The best you can do is to make sure you select the image AND the lines ...

As described above, the black colour is the app (e.g. Word) making different assumptions about the background that the transparent areas are letting you see than that made by the app where the image originated. Despite normally having a white page, Word seems to think that the area under the image is black! You can overcome this effect, at least in Word, by ...

I, too, had been through same. Absolutely, as @Ramhound said, 'one is 64-bit and one is 32-bit'. I know, because, I did some experiments with same 'bit' of installation and that won't work.

VBS is rather inflexible and abstracted from the task at hand, so rather than use it to manage things why not just have a control workbook that triggers and controls the process? The error handling and audit could then be a lot more elegant and informative, and the fact that the objects are native makes things an awful lot easier.

I've had a similar need so I wrote an AutoHotkey script that creates a global "paste text only" option. It's not perfect but it's fairly effective. There's a special case for Excel and you could probably create one for Word as well. ; Key: Win+V ; Cmd: Paste unformatted text #v:: IfWinActive Microsoft Excel { Send !es{Down 2}{Enter} ;Edit menu, Paste ...

It seems that Word 2003 doesn't let you set "Keep text only" as a default. But you can create a macro as described in detail here: https://cybertext.wordpress.com/2009/07/02/word-keyboard-shortcut-to-paste-unformatted-text/ Essentially you: 1. create the macro. 2. add the macro to your template. 3. assign a keyboard shortcut to the macro. That way, if ...

It turns out the answer is as simple as pressing F9 after entering a field code. Why do I have to press F9? Because manually edited field codes are not automatically updated. That means a freshly inserted code will not show until you refresh its result.

The document can have "restrict editing". Find the button "Restrict Editing" two places to right of "Compare" button (MS Word 2010).

I had a similar problem. I have Office 2007 and uninstalled 2010 Starter. All the icons got screwed up for Word & Excel (the two programs in Starter edition). I dug in the registry and was able to fix the .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, and I probably could have done with ALL of them, but it would be a painful process. Then I realized, what if I just put ...

It's unclear what caused this issue in the first place, but no amount of engineer visits and replaced parts would resolve it. In the end, we replaced the printer and we haven't seen it with the new one. Apologies that there isn't more to it than that.

It is within your license of o365. The only restriction is the number of devices. However you should check with the IT department of the company who's laptop it is as to whether they permit such use.

Well, there's a few ways that you might be able to do this. The feature that I would try to capitalize on is that, in Adobe PDFs, the "sticky notes" are displayed as roll-over text (i.e., visible on mouse-hover). Creating these notes from Word, however (as you noted), is not easy. But here's some methods you might consider: 1. Easy (but not free): You can ...

The best solution I have found for this is to make a group of the elements that should be on top of another shape. Then cut (Ctrl+x) them from the page. After that create the shape that should be under the previously cut elements. Then paste (Ctrl+v) the elements on-top of the created shape.

Look at DirectX and App-V as update vectors. The web install of Office is an App-V package. The DLL you list is for Direct3D. If you can login to your Office365 portal, go to settings, then Setup. You can run prerequisite checking tools to ensure your system is updated.
