You can try the following, but there are a number of provisos, e.g. it will probably only have a chance of working if you can merge to a new document, then update all the field codes. I have not covered all of the difficulties here. I am assuming you are using Windows Word. First, let's say your data is in "Sheet1", with a standard header row on row 1 and ...

Using Equation Tools, you cannot use the tab key to tabulate things. Instead, use the “Matrix” tools or the “Bracket” tools there. What can be done, and how it is done, depends on the context and purpose of formatting. In a simple case where you have a system of equations and you want to align them to the equals sign (as might be the case here), the ...

My work around to do this is to add 'dummy' headings (same heading text but a different heading level) at the beginning and end of the section covered by that heading. Then use this heading level in the page header field. Don't forget to hide the dummy headings in your TOC. When you are finished editing modify the dummying heading formatting so they are ...

I believe the most complete list you are likely to find here . You can find more details of most of the fields that people actually use either in Microsoft's documentation, although it isn't always easy to navigate (e.g. you can find the STYLEREF field documentation here or in the ECMA/ISO standards documentation and Microsoft's related implementation notes. ...

In my case the thumb drive where I had been saving the file got damaged. Strangely, I couldn't save it elsewhere as a Word file but I could as an RTF. Repairing the thumb drive (using windows tool) fixed the problem and allowed me to save as a word file.

Thanks so much! these steps worked for me. 1.Place the cursor just to the right of the black box in any example of the affected heading. 2.Hit ← and the black box should turn gray. 3.Type Ctrl+Shift+S to bring up a style popup. 4.Click Reapply. This has worked every time I've had this problem.

I tried the Ease of Access approach but it did not work. I tried multiple ways of changing the font color which also did not work. Tried selecting the font color by expanding the Font settings from the ribbon and that DID work! Than, all font color changing methods worked from there forward.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Office_password_protection: Currently, the 40-bit key protection used in Office 97–2003 can be easily cracked by the password-hacking software. The 128-bit key AES protection employed in Office 2007–2010 can still be considered as a relatively secure one. At the moment, however, cloud computing ...

For pictures: File--> "reduce file size" from there you can chose various options including compress all or only selected pictures. You can also have the file eliminate cropped regions data which may still be piggy-backing with the pictures. This won't help you identify the offending image but is a quick way to compress all pictures in order to ...

I faced the same problem and this is how I solved it. My "landscape" page did not have any footer, neither did the page right after it, but the second "portrait" page from the landscape one started from "O". So I went to the landscape page and selected the same "Page number at the bottom" option as I had originally. When I did this "O" appeared on the ...

AFAICS in Office 2013, the default paste format is "Microsoft Office Graphic Object". If you are just pasting (not linking/embedding) then you could change the separators in Excel (as you are doing), use Paste->Special to specify one of the graphic formats, then change the separators back. If you are using Paste->Link or embed, once you have the result ...

From Adjusting Table Row Height: Word allows you to independently adjust the height of every row in a table. For many table uses, you can rely on Word to select an automatic row height. There may be other times when you want to take charge and specify your own row height. You can do so by following these steps if you are using Word 97 or Word 2000: ...

Maybe a section break will help. A section break starts up new page numbers and so on and you can define different layouts for the pages. BUT, if a heading type is used over different sections, there is a good chance the header numbers will not reset for each new section. Do you need to alter the document afterwards? Maybe you can just copy from the ...

Depending on how determined these people are to steal your work, I think what you're asking to do is essentially impossible, especially since you seem mostly concerned with the copying of the content even to a .txt file. This is a problem with Digital Rights Management in general - it's likely impossible to make something that a computer can read without ...

That would actually be a case for Acrobat (Pro). However, the "master" password can be pretty easily removed; there are applications out there, which do that (assuming that their user is entitled to do so). If you want harder protection, you will have to use a DRM system, and there you will have to decide how much it is worth to you. You might look at the ...

It should do this automatically, provided you spelt the name beginning with a capital letter when you first added it to the dictionary. I've just tested this on my own Word 2013 installation and it works as expected Try removing Mally and adding it again with the first letter capitalised

Highlight the bullets Right-click Select "Font..." Then change the size on the far right side of the window by selecting smaller sizes. It will change the bullet size, but not the font.

{ ={ PAGE }-1 } will work, but it all depends on how you input it (or else you get a Syntax error). The trick is to add the field codes using Ctrl+F9 to perform an actual "add field code" instead of just typing braces in. Hit Ctrl+F9 to add a field code. In that type =. Then hit Ctrl+F9 again to add another field code. Type in PAGE. Arrow over, past the ...

Use a Word template (DOTX) instead of a document (DOCX), as your master/source. A template is a document type that creates a copy of itself when you open it. This will allow them to edit it and even save it (if desired), but won't save over the original source document (template). All you have to do is open a template and fill in the text and the ...

I'll make this simple. You're running 2010 or 2013 Word and saving the files in the .doc format. You are unsuccessful in trying to change the default font size. It accepted the style change but not the size change. Solution: Create a new file. Put in a few junk letters like 0ioewsnv. Click on Save As. Pick a simple label like TEST 1 BUT, go one step ...

There is no definitive way for you to know if a person is actually the author of the document he/she submitted to you because removing metadata from Word document is a trivial task.

Check out PDFParser by Didier Stephens or another tool mentioned on his site and you might have better luck. From my understanding the "author" would either be contained within the meta data, or it would not. There is no slack space or anything like that within a PDF for you to carve, but I guess you could try searching the strings contained within the ...

I had the same problem today and after some trials I deleted my headers completely, copy-pasted the headers from our template, and inserted "Page Numbers" at the top of my page from the "Header and Footer Tools" tab. This solved the "same page number problem" for me. My main problem after this was that I didn't wanted the first and second pages to have the ...

While you can't add the page directly, you can scale everything down as an A3 and specify to print it as an A2 since A sizes are all compatible. If the printer can handle A2, then just change the target page size. There might be some issues if you need really high resolution, but A3 to A2 really shouldn't lose too much as long as you setup your document ...

If you right click on the ribbon and select "Customize the ribbon," you can create custom "groups" of buttons to place on any of the tabs (or even create your own custom tabs). While still in the customization box, right click on your custom group and click "Hide command labels." Now those buttons in that group will be small.

{ REF _Ref394485517 \r \h \#"'Section '" }{ REF _Ref394485517 \r \h } If necessary, change the space after "Section" to a non-breaking space. (NB, it can only work if the numbering contains at least one digit, e.g. a numbering style A.A.A would break this. AFAIK 1.2.3 etc. are OK even though they are not well-formed numbers as far as Word is concerned).

In the quick access toolbar, there is an option called Web page preview. I think this should work (I tested it when I had Word 2007 and don't know if it is available on 2010 and 2013).

Insert the text box in the header/footer and follow the same steps. To prevent the textbox from being repeated on every page you will need to insert a section break at the end of that page (in the body of the document, not the header and footer) and unlink the headers and footers in the new section. A short tutorial on how to do this is available here.
