It's called a Tool(bar) Window. Any windows that have the WS_EX_TOOLWINDOW extended style will be rendered without a system menu or minimize/maximize boxes, and a small titlebar. In Windows XP and up (that support themes), tool windows are usually rendered without rounded corners (at least with the default themes). This style is usually used for toolbars (...

This is possible using tabstops. It's a little bit cumbersome because you'll have to calculate the position of the "centre" tabstop yourself. In the following example, i'm assuming you're working with a4 paper in portrait format, the width of the entire page is 21 cm. Assuming left and right margin is 2 cm each, the "content area" has width of 17 cm. If ...

This details the name of this window style and the options available in .NET; see @Synetech's excellent answer for the original purpose of this window style, the reasons it may be used for such a dialog box and the implementation in unmanaged Windows programs such as Notepad++. The window has square corners and looks like that because one of the designers/...

Try this small VBA macro: Sub StyleKiller() Dim N As Long, i As Long With ActiveWorkbook N = .Styles.Count For i = N To 1 Step -1 If Not .Styles(i).BuiltIn Then .Styles(i).Delete Next i End With End Sub This resolves the Builtin vs Custom issue. Note we run the loop backwards to avoid corrupting the loop ...

Turns out there is already an article about this very topic (down to the space-after property being used as an example) available on the word.mvps.org website. The general idea is you need to use a VBA macro once to clear the formatting. Microsoft Word would benefit from such feature included in the GUI. Dim oStyle As Style Set oStyle = ActiveDocument....

Clicking "Apply styles" again, and then "Modify" shows that the "Do not check spelling or grammar" checkbox is still filled-in-selected. In other words, the language setting didn't "take". This is what I remember that I used to be able to do with older versions of Word. For some reason, I can't get it to work now. OK, I figured it out on my own. ...

Furthermore, if I change the language of the text to, say, German, then all accents are preserved. In fact, the behavior is specific to text in the “French (France)” language — accented letters in other French ...

Yes this is possible: Create a new style. This will be the actual style that you will apply in the document. Apply the formatting you want but don't set any first line indent. Create another style, this will be a secondary style and not directly set by you so you may wish to hide it so it doesn't appear in the quick style pane. Set this style to be based on ...

You may do it manually for the second and succeeding citations by editing the field. Right click on the citation and select the "Edit Field" option. For example, if the original citation was this: (Johnson, Meyer, Lewis, Czerny, & Carroll, 2013) The citation field would be something like this: CITATION John13 \l 1033 If you edit it to this: ...

It appears that we French have the privilege of having our very own option in Word: In Word 2010, go to File > Options > Proofing ("Vérification"), and check Enforce accented uppercase in French ("Majuscules accentuées").

The only way you can achieve this is through the use of Character styles. Character styles are intended for small portions of text like captions and footnote referencing. You can use a paragraph style for your main paragraph text and then apply the character style to the 'Section One' text. For further reading see here: https://support.office.com/en-us/...

Use Heading 4 and Heading 5 will become available, ...

Originally I posted the extension Yarip as being able to accomplish what you want. As pointed out by JohnKiller in many cases it won't do the job because of the width/margin issues that he mentioned. Firebug + Firediff (to export the changes) + Stylish (to make changes persistent) is definitely the way to go. I was able to identify what was needed to get ...

I have found a suitable answer to this. By stylizing each HTML object in the source, Word will then apply styles if you "paste" with the option "Keep source formatting", most of the kinds of CSS will be converted into a Word style. eg: This will have the same formatting in HTML when you copy/paste to Word with "Keep Formatting" selected. <h1 style="...

According to this it is not possible. http://forum.userstyles.org/discussion/31168/where-are-user-styles-stored-on-chrome A hard link would do the trick, but the databases have different structures in Firefox and Chrome, so it will do you no good.
