printing landscape on Word



  • 1. Saving Default Launguage/Spell Check in Word 2002
    Hi, I'm checking on behalf of a friend of mine with Word 2002. She uses several different languages, but I think "French" is her default. The problem is when she tries to do a spell check in a French document, the language setting keeps jumping back to English. I thought I was doing it correctly by choosing "French France" as the language setting, but it doesn't seem to be holding. Am I missing a step or doing something wrong? Any other ideas or known issues with this? Thanks in advance. --- Gary
  • 2. Table Grid Styles
    I have used Table Grid 1 as a style in a Word template and want to change the row height on all rows in the style. This however is greyed out. I have resorted to changing it manually, hoping that the style might then let me update as formatted but that appears to be greyed out too. Am I missing something here or is it not possible to change a style row properties?

    I copied part of a Word doc into a email and then emailed it to my other account. It arrived as computer code. What happened? and can I change it back? Urgent thanks

To print landscape the instructions say "go to file /  page setup / 

"page setup" does not appear in my 'file' drop down menu.

What is the issue?

At the bottom of the drop down menu will be an arrow.  Click on the arrow to 
reveal more options under the file menu.
To prevent word from only showing the most recently used menu items on 
dropdowns, go to View>Toolbars>Customize, go to the Options tab, and uncheck 
the Menus Show..... box.

In Word XP (2002), when I select Print from the menu and change the Qty to

We have a small network at work.  A dedicated computer serves as the server 
plus four stations.  The server plus two stations have Windows 2000 
Professional & Office XP- another is Windows 98 and another is ME - they both 
have different versions of Office..  When this first began, the 3 computers 
that are the same, developed this problem.  If we needed to print multiple 
copies or landscape, the other two computers were used.  We then replaced the 
ME computer which now has Windows 2000 Professional and Office XP.  It now 
has the same printing problems that the other 3 have.  We can still do any 
variations of printing on the remaining one (Windows 98).

In other Office programs (i.e. Excel & Access), these problems are not 
experienced on any computer - it works fine.

We have reinstalled Office, print drivers, and made sure we have all updates 
for everything available.  It did not solve the problem.


4.Word 2000 printing landscape pages - orientation in final document

I have a document with both portrait and landscape pages. When I print it, 
the header of the landscape pages are on the right hand side of the page (as 
seen once the complete document is removed from printer tray and held in a 
portrait fashion). Is it possible to change this orientation so that the 
header is on the left of the landscape pages in the complete document? The 
document looks fine in print preview.
I hope I have explained my problem adequately. Thanks for your help.

I have a problem with printing a Word 2000 document which has both
landscape and portrait.  The document pages start in portrait, and
switche to landscape.  For some reason, Word draws the first landscape
page as landscape, and the subsequent pages as portait.

I have watched the DrvDocumentPropertySheets function and the passed

Anybody suggestions?  Anybody?
