Auto Numbering assumed



  • 1. Default measurements used in Word
    I've recently updated to Office 2003 from Office 2000 on my laptop. When using Word, I prefer my default measurements for margins, tabs etc to be in inches. I have inches selected in the Tools/Options/Mesurement Units, however the horizontal ruler displays a scale which is not inches (or centimetres, millimetres, points or picas). When selecting Format/Tabs, the default tab stops are entered as "3.27 ch". The margins are in inches as are the automatic bullet and numbering positions. The ruler display and default tab stops do not change irrespective of what measurement unit is selected in Options although the margin settings etc reflect the measurement unit selected. Can anyone solve this dilemma for me? Needless to say, I did not experience these problems with Word 2000! Cheers
  • 2. Moving between form fields on locked (protected) doc.
    In Word 2003, when a form was locked, you could move from field to field with the TAB key to fill out the form. I cannot figure out how to do this in 2007. I can only move to fields by clicking in them with the mouse. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.
  • 3. Printing certain pages in all sections
    Is there any possible way to print a range of pages in all sections? I have a number of mail merge documents that are merged to a new document overnight (due to their size, as it takes anywhere up to 40 mins with several thousand records) I need to print only certain pages within each section. Eg, the original merge document had 3 pages and 500 records, after it is merged to a new document I end up with a 1500 page document with each section containing 3 pages. What we need to do is print page 1 and 2 of each section to one printer (as it is duplex) and send page 3 to another printer as the duplex and simplex pages use different paper. Is this possible? We can do this before merging and selecting 'Merge to Printer', but the merge process takes far too long on some of our documents, but we seem to lose this functionality after mering into one document. Cheers.

Auto Numbering assumed

Postby UFNVTGlvblJQ » Wed, 05 Mar 2008 00:42:01 GMT

Is there a quick short-cut that I can try and back-up to an auto number???

Here's what I mean. I am typing a list. I enter the following information... Information
  Blah Blah Blah <ENTER>
  Blah Blah Blah <ENTER>
  (Auto Numbering is assuming a item and I am 
done there...I tried backspacing so that it would incrementally count to the 
previous level...2.1.4 but it just gets rid of anything. Is there any 
short-cut so that I can then go back a sub-section??? Or do I have to 
manually type 2.1.4???)

Thanks in advance for your help.

Assuming that your numbering scheme is built using propers styles and 
outline numbring, SHIFT-Tab would do what you want (TAB would do the 
If it does not, then make sure that you have Tools > AutoCorrect Options.. > 
AutoFormat As You Type tab > Set left- and first-indent with tabs and 

It is misleading because the Backspace works only with Indents, not the 
level numbering itself.

Ctrl-Z usually works.

CTRL-Z will not decrease a pargraph outline level to the previous outline 
level, unless you have custmized CTRL-Z, which is normally assigned to Undo.

CTRL-Z can remove a numbering that Word inesrts automatically when it 
assumes you want a bulleted or numbered list, but in fact you do not. But 
that is a different story and unrelated to the OP question.
