You can use the ASK or Fill-In field that activates on a new document or you could use a vba UserForm. A UserForm is more "elegant" but requires that the user allow macros to run. Here are two MVP pages on UserForms. Create and Employ a UserForm by Greg Maxey Create a Simple UserForm by Graham Mayor This is intermediate vba work. The Ask and Fill-...

As others have mentioned, this is most likely due to the OP using one of the Heading styles. However, it can still happen that you will have the expand/collapse arrows when using the Normal style. This is a problem I ran into from time to time for years, and no amount of Googling ever provided me with a solution, but I finally figured it out. If the text is ...

My recommendation is to put the workgroup templates masters in a shared network location. Then have the network login update a local workgroup templates folder that is in the same location on all computers. Sharepoint does not work well with Word templates, I'm sorry to say.

I think I saw someone do this with QuarkXpress. He made 2 selections and executed some keyboard shortcut, and hey presto, the two selections swapped positions. So "wishing you good health and happiness" became "wishing you happiness and good health". It took barely two seconds. You often need to do this or something similar when you're ...

Alt followed by P followed by B followed by P. This is the Ribbon shortcuts and will show up in tooltips after you press the Alt key. It is the equivalent of using the mouse. Otherwise, you can create a macro and assign a keyboard shortcut to the macro. Here is my article on the Microsoft website on assigning keyboard shortcuts. Here is such a macro: Sub ...

What I do to give the look of a border along one edge of a rectangle in ppt is set a background with a gradient of the color I want the border to be in, with first color 100% opacity at 0% location, and second color 0% opacity at 1% location. If I want a wide border I set a third color. First is 100% opacity at 0% location, second is 100% opacity at location ...

This is best done with a multilevel list set up following the procedures described by Word MVP Shauna Kelly. I outline these in my answer here. Basically, each level is attached to an existing paragraph style. These can be built-in styles or custom styles. Have your list set up so that the style used for "test" in your example is at a higher level ...

Try modifying the Caption style's indent. If you are going to have more than 9 figures, allow room for the extra digit.

You need to use bookmarks and fields to construct the extra set of page numbers. This is set forth in Greg Maxey's page on Page Numbering. Dual Page Numbering Sometimes people ask: How to display both "Page X of Y Pages" and "Page X of Z Pages" in the header/footer of a document? Where X is the page number referenced to Y or Z. Y is the ...

That has to do with the tab setting in the TOC style and the settings in your MultiLevel Numbering List. There is likely a left tab set where the errant page number is showing up. If you remove the tab stop it will give you the dot leader and right alignment. Note where the text ends on the entries that show the problem. Here is a temporary link to your ...

My solution is to show P1 in landscape: Select Layout >>> Margins >>> Custom Margins >>> Page Set up Change P1 orientation to Landscape. The two-pages zoom view will display P1 separately: P1 P2 P3 P4 P5 P6 P7 Before printing bring P1 back to its vertical position.

What you are asking for may be interfering with an AutoFormat as you type setting. That replaces two hyphens with an en-dash. Try checking that box and seeing if it does what you want. This also replaces a single hyphen surrounded by spaces between words with an en-dash. P.S. I would recommend against checking the box to automatically use suggestions from ...

I think that you have entered in the Replace field the value of -- , which ends with a blank. Auto Correct does not accept a blank at the end or the beginning of the "Replace" string, because apparently this does not agree with its algorithm for identifying the strings. Perhaps because a blank in the input will launch the Auto Correct string-search,...

The \s switch only works with the Built-In Heading Styles. Here is the online documentation for the Sequence Field. The built-in heading styles have special, almost magical, properties in Microsoft Word. Here is Word MVP Shauna Kelly's writing on reasons to use them. See #5 on Chapter numbering for Captions. Only the built in Heading Styles are available. ...

No, but the right-click Text Context menu contains both commands already and can be edited. If you want to edit that menu, you can find directions on Greg Maxey's page on Customizing the Text Shortcut menu.

Is there any Unicode equivalent of it?

You need to use the "Do not check spelling or grammar" option instead. See the answer #2 here: The VBA solution works for me:

You can set a right tab, with a dot leader. Then pressing the tab key before the page number gives you both the right-alignment and the dot leader. Here is a temporary link to a document with these settings. These are paragraph formatting settings, best handled in a paragraph style. The TOC 1 style has this by default. Here is a link to MVP Suzanne Barnhill'...

The hard limit is 32 Mb of text. You exceed this at your peril. I know of no limit on the total size. There is no limit on number of words, per se. That answers your question. You can make your document more manageable by: Using styles for all formatting. Avoiding manual page breaks. Instead, use page-break-before paragraph formatting in a style. Avoid ...

This can be done with Style Separators (Ctrl+Alt+Return). Table of Contents still work properly. In your case, do the following: Format your headings with Hanging=4cm. If you want to number your headings, create a tab stop at 1cm. Create your headings and text in separate paragraphs: HEADING Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consetetur sadipscing elitr, sed ...

Microsoft clearly states this 32 MB limit (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/troubleshoot/word/operating-parameter-limitation) Whether it's hard or soft and how it's calculated is not mentioned. However, the real limitation here is performance. Once you get a real document - with table of contents, references, maybe even pictures, tables and charts - ...

Switch to using a MultiLevel List attached to Styles and use Styles. This method is explained step-by-step in Word MVP Shauna Kelly's page on Numbering. I've outlined it in my answer here. Each numbered level in a list is attached or connected to a separate existing paragraph style. You assign the numbering level then by using styles. You use Body Text, ...

The No-Width Non-Break did not work for me but it was clutch for a solution that works.

For anyone else fiddling with Word like this 3 years on: Create your custom style or edit the existing 'Strong' style with your desired formatting, then just assign the style the ctl+b keyboard shortcut. It will override the existing normal bold option and use your preferred style instead. Slight downside is it's no longer a toggle, so to undo the bold ...

Ok, based on the comments above, we finally figured out how to solve this frustrating problem. Once you do Ctrl F so the "find" pane is open on the left, then just mouse over the vertical right side of the pane until you get the resize handle and expand/pull it a bit towards the right, this will move the page you are seeing from left-justified to ...

The Print To option will not save the semantic formatting. That means people with disabilities using screen readers and other assistive technology will not be able to navigate the document. E.G. They won't be able to call up a list of headers and select the header they want to go to.

Word will go double-page if there is enough screen-space to put two pages side-by-side. The solution is to reduce the window-size of Word, so it cannot fit two whole pages inside.

The "Define Multilevel List" tool, as suggested by Charles Kenyon, was half of the answer. After opening that dialogue box, the key was to click "more" in the bottom left, and then change the "Follow number with" option to "Nothing":

There is no method to change the indent in the single-level list formats. You can and should use the Define MultiLevel List dialog following the steps in Word MVP Shauna Kelly's page on numbering. That dialog allows changing of the Indent. You cannot change it in paragraph formatting nor in the List dialogs. Only through the Define MultiLevel List dialog can ...

Yes, there is. See the interior.color property. for example: WB.Worksheets(1).Rows(1).Interior.Color = RGB(255, 0, 255)

Fixed it! Most probably it had to do with the header and the picture that was there. I increased the header by 0.8 and the indentation of the ToC was gone.

Use the \b switch to set your TOC for only a portion of the document. A Table of Contents is a Field. You can edit it to tell it to look only within a certain section within a bookmark. Select the part of your document you want in your TOC and add a bookmark for that part. Then, edit the TOC field so that it is limited to that text. See TOC Tips and Tricks ...
