Apparently I botched this question. Although I had been editing the document using Microsoft Word 2013 (on Windows), the file had been printed from Microsoft Word 2003 (on Mac). That makes a big difference because that version of Word probably didn't have the Segoe UI Symbol font. So, on the Mac, I recently edited the ballot boxes to use a different font. ...

I faced a similar requirement and the solution was to use different styles for internal and external content. The internal styles are set as hidden (under font settings) so they are visible on screen but not when printing to PDF or paper. Just make sure the "Print hidden text" option (Word options, under Display) isn't checked. You can also define keyboard ...

I had the same problem, but the solution above (accepting changes), didn't fix it. I still had an extra section, but no visible section break. I selected "outline" view, from the view tab, and was then able to see the section break and remove it. (I inherited this document from someone else . . . it was very confusing).

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.

On Word for Mac 2011, one can reduce the file size by navigating to File -> Reduce File Size... which will reduce all pictures in the document to a specified resolution. In my case, I was able to reduce a Word document with 15 or so pictures from 68 MB to 50 MB.

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 ...

Here is how to do this efficiently: In Microsoft Word, add the zebra watermark as described in the original question. Save-as that word document to Adobe PDF format.

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

To use a "normal" Table of Contents that generates the page numbers itself, the numbering and formatting comes from the settings in the "Format Page Number" dialog. So to do it this way, the page numbers have to start at 1, not at 4. In order to achieve that, you need to ensure that there is a section break (Layout Tab->Page Setup group->Breaks dropdown) ...

You could improvise with 2 tabs. Set one at the value of the centre of your page as a Centred tab, with _____ leader (option 4). Then set a Right Aligned tab at your right margin, again with ____ leader (option 4). Type a tab then your heading text then another tab. The lines will be too low (as they are underscore), so to correct this you can ...

You can do this with 2 easy steps. First, change the font property of the Caption style to 12 pt. Then you just need to do a find and replace to update the text part of your captions (ie after the Figure 1, which will end in a paragraph ^13) to be 14pt. I've assumed the . and -- should also be 14pt.

Place your mouse pointer exactly on the separator line and double click. This toggles the display of white space between pages.

I think the TOC adopts the formatting (and page numbering) of the PAGE field. So I think you just need to reverse the setup of your fields (so that the header is the calculated field instead of in the footer). In the footer will be the actual page field. Format this via the Format Page Numbers option of the Page Number button in the Header and Footer ...

Solution 1: with context menu key With Word 2013, you can click the context menu key followed by either K for Keep Source Formatting, M, Enter for Merge Formatting (yes, strangely enough, an additional Enter was required) or T for Keep Text Only.

This worked for me with single lines of text: Set a right-aligned tab at your right margin value with option 4 for underscore selected for the tab properties. Type your text, then an underscore character followed by a tab character. Go back and select your underscore character only and change its font properties so its spacing is condensed by 10pt ...

Quite a few things can cause page numbering to reset. The first thing I would try is locating each section break and setting the section to "Continue page numbering from previous section". One thing that commonly causes new sections to be created is the use of columns. Your question needs more information in order to provide the best answer.

If you have used a style for your chapter headings (eg Heading 1), you can use the STYLEREF field in the Insert Field dialog. You'll see on the right of the dialog options which allow you to insert just the paragraph number (otherwies by default the text with style applied is inserted).

The printer driver cannot corrupt the Word file, as it only reads it. It can produce corrupt output though - meaning the print result looks wrong. The original Word file will still be fine.

I solved what may be a similar problem related to a sudden page numbering change, whereby page 13 was followed by page 2. I couldn't find a way to make it follow the previous page number, but noticed that the sections marked in the header & footer skipped suddenly from Section 6 to Section 8. I finally realized that I'd inserted a couple of Continuous ...

You can use bookmarks with specific names to mark those items. Then later you can use code to search for these bookmarks and extract their text. For example, select the first name, then Click Bookmark on the Insert tab. Assign a specific name to this bookmark, like FirstName, and this will be the name you will use when coding your program.

Word only supports sorting on single-level lists, so any indents will be treated as a part of that sort operation (which is why the list gets messed up like this). A work-around for this is to utilize Outline mode and set the specific paragraph outline levels of the top level lists and then sort. First, select all level 1 indents (you can use CTRL and ...

A quick fix (that will limit your formatting options) is to keep the answers in the same paragraph as the question. To create a line break between the question and answer, enter a line break shift+enter rather than a standard paragraph break enter. This will allow Word to sort the questions by paragraph and the answer will automatically follow.

I would probably start here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kappa It contains a list of all the unicodes for kappa. The one you are looking for might be closest to this: 𝜿 U+1D73F As to that exact font - it would be a typographers design for one of those Unicodes. There are no other valid characters. So next up is some digging as whatthefont.com could not ...

It may be possible to recover your file using a recovery tool. My favorite is Photorec. It is also available for Mac. You best use an external disk to recover to. However, the time you'll spent in possibly recovering the file may outweigh the time you need to redo your work. Also the more you work with the disk on which the file you wish to recover is ...

The answer is MAYBE. This actually happened to my niece. She was working on a paper and accidentally deleted it. When a file is deleted on a hard drive there are only a few bytes that are changed in order to give the space back to the drive. If you flip those bytes back you can "undelete" the file. The trick is this. As long as other files have not ...

Yes, it is OK. Sorry I don't have a reference for this, other than experience. Radio buttons are ActiveX controls. When you insert them, Word assumes these are being used as part of a macro to process the data selections being made by the user. Therefore, you get the VBA Project warning. If you are not using any macro (VBA) in the document, you are safe to ...
