In the main body, your captions should contain the 2 fields - if you press ALT F9 you'll see the field codes rather than results. The first field is the STYLEREF field which will probably be something like { STYLEREF 2 \s} - that is the part that adds the numbering from your Heading 2 style to the caption. So in the main part (when viewing field codes ...

I do not know of any options in Word to do this, but I wrote you a simple macro instead, which will link the image you choose from the window that pops up. Sub AlwaysLinkImage() ' Macro by Fluxenein Dim strFile As String With Application.FileDialog(1) ' msoFileDialogOpen .Filters.Clear .Filters.Add "Image files", "*.bmp;*.gif;*.jpg;*.png" If ...

I had a similar thing (Word 2013) with a document I got from someone else. My suspicion is that it had to do with margins. The document had 'narrow margins' (menu > Page Layout > Margins > narrow) but I think it had a line copied into it from another document with 'normal margins' and thus copied that formatting. I could see there were different text ...

Ah yes, the default settings. This will always happen unless you manually set your margins to accommodate all printing area(s). You might have a header or footer set too low or too high. You might have put some text-art, text-box, or art, image, etc, too far over a margin. Word is reminding you that your margins are being compromised. Yes, usually your ...

You can achieve this if you place your number only (eg 4) cross-reference field (with its # 0 switch) inside an = field and multiply it by -1. The b xref comes in with letter only (ie no .) so nothing to modify there, if it's inserted as (no context) type reference. ({ = {REF _Ref452121199 \r \h \# 0 }*-1 }{REF _Ref452121186 \r \h }) It's getting a bit ...

Tables are quick and easy. Try them. But if you are looking for other options, what about tabs? You can set tabs by clicking in the ruler on the top of the page, and then using the TAB key to position words. You can also re-position the tabs and any time by selecting them and moving them right or left, or open the format dialog and type them numerically in ...

Further to the useful answer by Lernkurve, I conclude that ‘Paste Special…’ does not do the job, while mapping keystrokes to macros created from the ‘paste mode’ dialogue does. Since his first two options apply Word 2013 and up, anyone stuck on 2007 will have to create and map macros. Recording Macros To record macros, you need the Developers tab enabled ...

You can achieve this, if you're willing to add a TC field above your table (and hope no-one deletes it, as many users aren't familiar with these nowadays). Above your table, insert a TC field with some placeholder text eg "ABC", and select the options "TC entry in doc with multiple tables" and "Outline level" set to 1. Select the placeholder text in the TC ...

There is no solution but there are two workarounds. Both have their pros and cons: Workaround #1 Set English as the system-wide default keyboard language. For windows 7 go to Control Panel → Region and Languages → Keyboards and Languages → Change keyboard and set "Default Input Language" to English (the steps with screen-shots are here) For Windows 10 go ...
