comment How to adjust the thickness of SOME lines in a Word table
On Custom, I can turn them on or off. So, if I make one thicker, the rest also are thicker, or else off completely. At least with Grid, I still get the gridlines. It seems like Custom would be what I want, but I'm just not seeing how to modify one of those lines to be thicker. Is that actually working for you? Maybe there is something wrong with my copy of Word.

If I choose Borders and Shading, and then Grid, I can adjust the thickness in a box around multiple or single rows. That will work, but isn't really what I wanted. I don't see a way to adjust JUST the bottom line thickness, without modifying or removing the other gridlines.

I'll suggest to my neighbor to try the newer adobe, if that's an option for her. Both of us use what our companies provide, and at least for me, upgrading on my own is simply not allowed.

If I surround the word with quotes, it finds nothing, because no words have quotes around them. That sounded like a good idea.

Adobe Reader 9 doesn't have an Edit > Advanced Search. Under Edit, it has Search, Search Results, and Preferences. Preferences has a Search category, but nothing about "Whole words only".

I'm using Acobe Reader 9, and I think she mentioned 9 as well.

comment Do Pico Projectors need replacement bulbs?
It not only appears to be a real question, it has real answers. Which rather implies that it can be reasonably answered in its current form.

If they were truly designing, they would make it that way by default, but allow it to be changed. They "design", we learn to put up with it?
