    Per the posts re: custom tool bars on 6/27-28, I want to try this to save a custom tool bar. I have Acrobat 7. The posts said that this would force Word to save the new toolbar to What if I am in another template when I set up the toolbars? I would not mind having the custom toolbar available from but I don't want to save all the styles in my manual template to with this procedure. Or will this force the save to the template I am working in when I do the save? -- Thanks! Mary Lee

    When I pull the 5388 index card template up in Word it is potrait oriented. I want to print library type cards, so I need to insert my data going across short edge. (The 5' edge will be the sides.) If I choose page setup and change it to landscape the template changes to one or two cards p/page instead of 3 cards p/page.

how to insert a numbering within a sentence as a reference

I have a numbered word document. One of the sections is number  5.2.8
I want to use that number as reference in the text I am writing further down 
the document. (eg: See section 5.2.8 above)
If the document is edited an the numbering changes, I want the numbering 
within the text in the brackets to change automatically to whatever number it 
changes to. If this is possible, how is it done? Thanks

Insert | Reference | Cross-reference. Note, however, that cross-references 
don't update entirely automatically, but they are updated when other fields 
are updated (by printing or switching to Print Preview, for example).

Hi Cpp

Please be specific: you are cross-referencing from where to where (in 
terms of: where is the target, where the source), exactly how, and what 
does not work? It's also always a good idea to mention the version of 
Word you are using.

4.can't type sentence after inserting number or bullets

I have a ACER Laptop purchased in Kuwait in 2005. Whenever I try to insert a 
number or bullet using word it inserts from the toolbar however it then does 
not allow me to type a sentence or word next to the number or bullet. The 
indent numbering on the tool bar is also reflecting the numbers 
backward......7 6 5 4 3 2 1 as well?


5.end sentence with number, need next sentence to auto capitilize

When in Word 2003, if I end a sentence with a number and don't capitilize the 
next word, MS word doesn't automatically correct this.  Is there an option to 
change?  Word automatically corrects the first letter in a sentence but not 
if the previous sentence ends in a number and then peroid??  HELP.

For example:  Sentence below ends in a number.  Next word needs to 
automatically be capitilized, how do I do that?

The physician will see patient 1.  now he states he needs admission form.

How do I get the 'n' in now to automatically correct.
