I think, like the OP, I am looking for a way to add Quick Part Document Properties in a way that allows direct editing from the document itself without needing to go through all the dialog boxes associated with changing the value of a document field. When add a property, for example Insert > {Text} Quick Parts > Document Property > Title, it ...

Yes this is possible: Create a new style. This will be the actual style that you will apply in the document. Apply the formatting you want but don't set any first line indent. Create another style, this will be a secondary style and not directly set by you so you may wish to hide it so it doesn't appear in the quick style pane. Set this style to be based ...

get the replace dialog box up (Ctrl-H), unfortunately there's no option to choose 'regular expressions'. If there were you'd put $ in the find, and whatever in the replace. $ represents the end of the line in regex. But word doesn't support that Type ^p in the find section. Then whatever in the 'replace' section. I knew that 'cos I remembered from some ...

I have WordPerfect X6, which gives the user the option of using WordPerfect in a Word or Word Perfect format. (You can use WordPerfect to make psuedo-Word documents.)

You didn't mention what version of Word you are using. This answer came from Word 2010, but should be applicable to other versions. Right click* on the text box and find the "Wrap Text" setting (also available on the Drawing Tools Format tab of the ribbon, in the "Arrange" group). Try experimenting with other settings. I was able to reproduce the problem ...

I understand that you want to expand the selection of text which marked by a comment without removing and adding that comment again. I haven't found any way to do this other than deleting the text (which is not a good solution). I see there is another open question about the same thing where someone created a macro for the task which might be of help to ...

Can you describe your problem further? You question is very ambiguous and open-ended. I would suggest you read the help page on how to ask a good question. Some questions to point you in the right direction: Did you delete text in a .doc or .docx and save the file afterwards? If not, then what exactly do you mean by "part of the text of a Word file"? Are ...

This feature is called "tabstops" or "tabs". You can easily achieve this in LibreOffice Writer. To do so, open Menu "Format" -> "Paragraph", and select the "Tabs" tab. There, you can define new tabstops (enter position, select left / right / centered / decimal alignment, select the "Fill character") or edit existing ones. The dotted line is created ...

There are actually default keyboard shortcuts for zoom in (Control Option -) and zoom out (Control Option =), at least for English Canadian keyboard. For keyboards where + and = don't share the same key, I'd try Control Option + for zooming in.

Finally this is what worked. Go to Format -> Background and go into Fill Effects. Chose the Picture tab, and select the A4 size image. This will not dim, fade, or budge no matter what you select, type, or move. For some reason it won't show in the print preview, but comes out just fine if printed.

Select the text that has the color that you want. Key [SHIFT+F10) + F. This will take you to the Font selection window. From here the color of the font will be shown. I hope this helps.

Probably the simplest way to do this is add a left aligned tab stop to the column instead of centering the text and add a tab before each value (it's CTRL + Tab to add a tab in a table cell BTW). Note that if the column width changes then you will have to realign the tabstop.

Are you on a mac or pc? If on a mac, a straightforward approach is using an app like DigitalColor Meter (comes default with Mac OS X), it'll give you the R,G,B variables over whatever you hover, you can then plug this into a custom colour. I'm sure theres a windows equivalent, a little Googling can help you there if thats the case.

I can think of two solutions off the top of my head: 1: Select the text you want the color of, then click the "More Colors Option" as seen in your screenshot. From there, copy down the "Red, Green, Blue" colors, that will give you an exact match on the color, even if it's a non-standard color. You can use these three numbers to add color to any element ...

Using Notepad++'s Split Lines functionality can do this for TEXT files.

I had the same problem. So, instead of struggling with the page number options I did the following: 1. I inserted a text box. 2. I cut the table and pasted it into the text box. (This is where the problems started, so be sure to have a couple of valiums at hand when you get to this part) Word then changed all the formatting on my table and slowed down my ...

There is “trick” that can simulate the desire effect. First, define the prefer width to the column. Lets says 2 inches. Then for the text inside the column defines an indentation that better fit your desire style. Lets says .75 inches from the left. You should end with a format similar to one that you are like to achieve.

I had the same demand today and I discovered a functional way to solve this. Firstly, insert the scanned image into your document. I suggest to put it in header, to stay separated from the content (only for control). Config the image to stay "under the text" (I don't know the correct name in english), so you can carry it without changing your content ...

I stumbled accross this when we had also this problem with external Word-Documents which referenced Templates from foreign Servers.

Highlight the space you want to enlarge. Access the font style and try various fonts. Typically "CONSOLAS" and "chi-boot" have particularly wide spaces between words, the alphabet of your text will remain unchanged. Once you have done one space to your satisfaction, others can be done by simply copy and paste of the first. - Since it is a single space, ...

Make sure your page formatting is the same. If one has significantly larger margins, it may mess with the table formatting. Also when you paste, try the keep source formatting to see if that resolves the issue.

That's the margin that appears whenever Track Changes is on, or there are comments in the document. To hide it, in Word: Review -> Track Changes -> No Markup. In OpenOffice I believe it would be View -> Comments (uncheck)

Interestingly, the docx format is actually nothing more than a zip-compressed archive with ".docx" in stead of ".zip". That said, it's entirely possible to extract the contents of any docx to a folder, then re-compress the contents using ultra compression and renaming the resulting zip file with the docx extension. This could substantially reduce the file ...
