My Gravatar is from Troy Snow's photography. Check him out at his Flickr page and tell him I sent you: http://www.flickr.com/photos/troysnow/ . Even though we tend to use the same goofy kitten face as an avatar, we are not the same person and have no affiliation. Other than good taste in avatars, anyway.

comment How can I set up a wired printer on different operating systems without a print server?
Your question is better suited for SuperUser. If four other people (or one mod) agrees with me, it will be moved there for you. No need to do anything.

comment Mouse Cursor Corrupted by Adobe Indesign
My initial thought is that you should report this as a bug to Adobe.

This ended up being the culprit. I didn't narrow down the ultimate cause though.

This was apparently not the problem. It was a user profile issue.

Update. I did all of this and it didn't solve the problem.

Thanks kmote! I'll take a look at it the next time I'm with the client.

I've awarded the bounty to this answer as it seems like the most logical way to proceed. Other answers seem to be a little more obscure. Sadly, my client has not responded to my repeated attempts at scheduling time with him. I cannot be sure if this is the answer, and yet the bounty period will run out before I can meet with him. I will accept the correct answer and consider making a second bounty if the accepted answer is different from this one.

P.S. The user does not use a high contrast theme.

Would this be in effect for all applications or just word? Remember, Wordpad can color text successfully.

@user377178 IT is seen in all document view layouts that I know of. I'll check the printer next time I'm at the client.

@zackrspv Yes, I can add color to words in Wordpad?

@ChrisS Since this also affects Excel, do you think it might be better to go up a branch and rename 14.0?

@soandos I don't believe so, since I just reinstalled Office Professional from the disc and didn't perform any additional operations except to install the latest Office updates.

@Yar I think you are correct that the first suggestion is not feasible. Not sure what I was thinking. And yes, $300 is wow. =/

comment Troubleshooting Sony Vaio intermittent WiFi connection?
@DanielMagliola Sadly, it's going to be hard to do much more without seeing your exact settings. There could very well some pertinent option on the advanced tab of your wireless adapter's properties. It's just hard to tell what each vendor names each option. =|

@gry Regular paragraph text. I haven't attempted any text boxes. I am able to change the text size and any other aspect of the text. I will try to save the file as HTML, etc. tomorrow.
