comment How can I split up a document into two by even and odd pages?
I had this idea as well, but unfortunately I need the result in some kind of editable text format.

Around 70 pages. Yes, that would have been smarter.

comment My Windows 7 has suddenly stopped displaying Unicode symbols
@Synetech I think this is a bug in Windows. The API should be protected against accidental misuse.

comment Can files deleted with rm -rf be recovered?
@lena: Where you put the files doesn't matter, as they will simply be spread out over any free space there is. So your new downloads might as well have destroyed your lost data. You can't be sure until you try a data recovery. "Normal" deleted file recovery will probably work though. I'm a Windows user so I can't point you to specific programs, but you should just give the solutions mentioned in the other answers a shot.

comment Can files deleted with rm -rf be recovered?
@lena: so what's most important is that you STOP USING YOUR COMPUTER for anything else than file recovery! Do not edit files, download files, install programs, don't do anything which will affect the contents of your hard drive. Install the recovery program to a different hard drive. And during recovery, of course, you will need a second hard drive or USB key to store the recovered files on.

comment Can files deleted with rm -rf be recovered?
@lena: They don't "go" anywhere, the contents of the file will still reside in the same space that the file occupied the whole time before, but what matters is that the records where which file is stored are lost, and your operating system needs these records for normal operation (i.e. listing files in the Finder.) But because the contents are still there on your hard disk (albeit in a space now marked as "free" in the filesystem), some specialized searching programs can scan your whole hard drive for file structures and recover such files IF they aren't already overwritten.

comment How to uncompress a 9GB file in Windows FAT32
@Kashif: Convert does NOT format your partition! Your data will be kept and transferred into the new format. I have already done this several times.

Seems as if it really was this. Accepted.

After reading through it all again, this might very well be the correct cause for my issue. Thanks for posting it here. +1.

comment Can I change the format of a list number in Word 2010?
Thanks. Note to future readers, the 'spaces' are unprintable marks that can be displayed/hidden with CTRL+* or by clicking the ¶ button. So this solution is essentially, "format the paragraph ending break in bold" which usually has no direct effect but in lists has the side effect of formatting the list number in bold.

+1, this is the solution from the bug report mentioned by Oliver and it worked for me.

@kiddailey: The fault lies with either support.microsoft.com/kb/2545698 or support.microsoft.com/kb/2505438, I'm quite sure. Not installing those two updates has stopped the issue from recurring so far.

Didn't work for me when switching back. However, I think I know now which Windows Update is responsible. I'll post more info when I'm sure.

How do I find that out? However, as you can see in the screenshots, the error occurs with different fonts so I believe it's not a problem with the font.

It's probably less of a hassle to just use copy & paste.

It can't find any restore points, not sure if there are none but at some point the program also gave me an "Access denied".

comment Automatically insert citations as hyperlinks to their respective bibliography entry in OpenOffice?
Thanks for the detailed answer. Well, what I'm doing right now is #1. It works for small documents (20 pages, 10 references or so). But as far as I understand, none of your suggestions explains how I actually insert the citations as clickable hyperlinks.
