Document map without ToC



  • 1. Extracting Embeded Fonts
    Soemhow in reformatting an old computer, copying files and settings to the new computer, and getting the new computer ready to work, I have lost a font. Now I do have a Word document where this font is embedded, and being the way I am, I embedded the full font. But, is there any way I can extract that font from the Doc, so I can install it and thus use it elsewhere?
  • 2. WordXP Default/Active Dictionary
    Using Word XP, by default the dictionary is English (U.S.) so that words such as 'ionising' are automatically corrected to 'ionizing'. The only way I seem to be able to access the dictionary settings is by deliberately misspelling a word, then from the right-click menu, selecting the 'Language' sub-menu, and then choosing 'English (Australia)'. If I try the Set Language option, I can't de-select the English (U.S.) option, so the computer happily alters words to it's preferred US spelling, despite these being illegal in an Australian Dictionary. Worse yet, the changes I make to the Dictionary only seem to take place for that given word so I would have to individually highlight every misspelt word in the document, and change the language accordingly. The only way I can see around this is by deleting the US dictionary. Surely there's a simple way to change the default and active dictionaries? Clearly there must be a better way? Over to you good folk....
  • 3. Word 2000 Template Problem
    I have created a from template that includes a table with calculating formulae. The formulas are dependent upon variable entries made by the user. The formulae appear to work correctly if I use 'real' numbers. However, when a user is using the template and enters the variable number during the form completion, the formulae will not calculate. Does anyone have a solution to this problem? I am using Office 2000. The template is designed and used in Word 2000 (SP-3).
  • 4. Publishing access report in word missing graphics, logos, boxes.
    Help!! I have created a report in Access and I have some of the headings boxed using the line tool, but when I run the report and export it using word, the boxe lines are missing along with our logo. Is there a way to get them exported into word? Is this something that Access does not support?

Document map without ToC

Is there any way I can get the Document Map to show without listing the ToC 
entries? It's pretty annoying seeing the same headings twice and 50% of the 
time inadvertantly clicking on the ToC entry not the paragraph heading itself.

TOC styles have  body text paragraph outline levels and so should not  be
caught by the document map.  But the document map sometimes changes paragraph
outline levels based on the formatting used.   Modifying the TOC styles
should get rid of TOC entries in the  map.

Pam I just don't get this. If I insert a ToC that is one of the standard ToCs 
such as Classic, then the Map doesn't include it. When I insert a ToC where I 
select "Format: From template" then the ToC is included in the Map. So I 
tried to modify my ToC1, ToC2 and ToC3 styles, because that's what the ToC 
includes, and no matter what I do it's still there in the Map unless I do 
something drastic like set ToC1 to Normal. But that's not logical because I 
want the ToC styles to be used. I can't see what specific property of the ToC 
styles is forcing it's inclusion in the Map. I have removed numbering, but 
basic things like Font type and style should not be the issue ???

Click the down arrow to the right of a TOC style name, then  click modify >
format > paragraph.  In the general section, make sure the outline level is
"Body Text".  If you had to change the setting, then you may have fixed your

If not, then I may not understand the situation. Just to clarify, are the
headings in your text styled as Heading 1, Heading 2, etc.? When you select
the whole TOC, right click, and toggle the field codes do you see something
like this: {TOC \o -3\h \z \u }?

1.Copy text results in unwanted entries in Document map and TOC

After migrating to Word 2007 we have the problem that when we select some 
auto-generated text from a different program and paste it in another word 
document it generates a lot of entries in the document map. I tried all I 
could think of. I'll list the things I learned so you can maybe get a better 
idea of whats going on.
- There are a lot of unwanted entries
- These entries are not coupled to a single style.
- These entries are not coupled or derived from a Heading style
- These entries are not influenced by the show level in the outline view
- In Office 2003 it works great
- When inserting the TOC and clicking options and deselecting the second 
checkbox (just below the styles, sorry different language version here, so I 
don't have the exact English caption) these entries don't show up in the TOC 
but are still there in the outline.

It looks like Word does some auto formatting while pasting. How can you 
prevent this. Any ideas are welcome.

2.Cannot get captions to NOT appear in TOC and Document Map

Despite the fact that I have Paragraph formatting set to Body Text, my 
captions are always appearing in my Table of Contents and also in my Document 
Map, and always at the Outline Level 1 level, so that they appear as 
top-level items in these lists.  This makes it very difficult to navigate the 
doc using Document Map, and it corrupts my Table of Contents.

I have created two caption styles based on the default "Caption" style that 
came installed with MS Word 2007:  I have named these "CaptionFigures" and 
"CaptionTables".  There is no difference in the actual formatting of these 
custom styles (they are same as "Caption" style), I merely need two separate 
style names so I can differentiate to create a Table of Figures and Table of 

Note that I have other styles in use that have Body Text format, that often 
mysteriously revert to Outline Numbering and thus appear in my ToC and Doc 
Map.  I can fix these by selecting the text and chaning formatting back to 
Body Text.  But with the Caption styles, the formatting is always Body Text 
yet the items still appear in the TOC and Doc Map.  Very frustrating!!

3.using custom styles toc generated correctly document map is wrong

Using Microsoft Word 2003, I've created custom styles in an outline format. 
I've generated a table of contents with no problem. However, since the 
document is quite large, I'd like to be able to access different sections for 
editing by using the document map. The help article reads "Document headings 
must be formatted with built-in heading styles ...." I assume it means the 
built-in heading styles that came with word. However, when I turn on the 
document map, some of my custom styles show but most do not. I've right 
clicked on the headings that show and selected 'all', but this does not work. 

4.Suddenly captions and other text in document map and TOC


I'm working on my thesis, which has now about 100 pages. Before I started I 
read up on how to use word 2007 for large documents and so I first created 
the general outline, seperated everything in appropriate sections, defined 
custom styles. After this was OK I started editing the actual content making 
sure everyting is formatted using styles and avoiding direct formatting as 
much as I can. Everything worked as expected.

Until now...

Suddenly all kind of extra entries show up in the document map such as 
captions of figures, and tables, but also some other styles I defined. 
Strangely not all figures and tables are included, just some of them. They 
also show up in the TOC.
I've read up on this "feature" and it could be related to direct formatting. 

So I selected all the extra entries and redefined the correct style (which 
it was allready showing to have). And sure enough the entry was removed. But 
to my surprise, when I opened the document the next day, it had all the extra 
entries again.

So if a MVP or other word user could explain what is going on here and how 
to fix it it is greatly appreciated. I would even go as far as editing the 
XML directly in the word zip-package, if I knew it would solve things.

Thanx in advance


5.Document Map/TOC

I have a 500 page document with lots of headings and styles. I am used
to dealing with documents like this but I have a problem that I cannot
figure out.  The document map is drawing from most if not all of the
styles and headings.  I cannot collapse it down. I didn't think this
was a problem until I regenerated the table of contents and saw that
even normalized text was being pulled into the TOC.  I checked the
Options in the TOC styles and made sure that TOC 1 is drawing from
heading 1 and TOC 2 from heading 2.  ALl of that is in check.  Any
