  • 1. diacritical marks: part II
    Hi, I cannot help but ask. I am an iBook G4 owner and having a problem similar to that addressed in the diacritical marks discussion some three months earlier. I routinely have to phoneticize Japanese and Sanskrit terms in roman alphabets, and in the course of doing so must resort to diacritical marks to express certain sounds. Many people, including those here, have suggested simply opening the character palette and using the 'insert' function to take whatever I need from it. The trouble is, my character palette doesn't seem to allow me to do this, since the 'insert' button refuses to be clicked; furthermore, when I try cutting and pasting it into my MS Word document, the character is not recognized and appears as a jumble of nonsense. Oddly, inserting it into a Safari window is problem-free. It's just Ms Word that appears to resist the insertion. I wonder if there is a fundamental problem that must be addressed before this task can be performed. Any help regarding this matter will be greatly appreciated. I am a fuzzy, and having tried tackling this for the last week, I am at a loss to continue. Thanks again. Ken
  • 2. Entering text in Word 2004 only possible in Times New Roman for certain keyboard layouts??
    I am using Word 2004 version 11.2 (060202) on an iBook G4 bought in the UK. When I switch to Hungarian keyboard, word only recognises Times New Roman fonts, and regardless of the type of font used in the document I start typing in, it enters text in TNR. This is not the case for German or UK keyboard layouts, where whether it is Arial, Verdana, or anything else, it works. If I highlight the text and change the font to Arial afterwards, it looks and prints perfect, if I use the keyboard shortcuts for putting accents, etc, it also works, but entering text through the Hungarian keyboard layout is only possible in TNR. Unfortunately I need to create documents in Arial, so this is a painstaking experience, typing and then reformatting every change, every addition to the documents. Could you please advise as to what there is to do? Thanks Mton
  • 3. Continous pagebreaks and tables
    Hi I have document that contains a table. Within the table there are numerous continous pagebreaks. I need to have a formula that sums certain cells, but how do I refer to a kolumn/cell when there are pagebreaks? It seems that the continous pagebreaks "break" the table. Does that mean that between respektive pagebreaks a "new" table springs into existence? If so, how do I reference cells in a table that is within another "section" (i.e pagebreak)? ------ using Office 2004 on Tiger 10.4.6
  • 4. VB/Applescript solution for populating a table
    I have a document that has nothing but a single, 200+ row, 3 column table. Each cell contains a string and I need a script that 1. goes to the first cell, 2. reads the string into a variable theString, 3. send the string and gets the result using a one-liner applescript call to another app: tell app "MyApp" to set theResult to vent thisEvent{"Home", theString, true} 4. places the result into that same cell (either replacing the current string, or after a carriage return would be acceptable) 5. moves to the next cell, repeating till the end. It doesn't matter to me whether I'd do this using a VB script that contains a single Applescript call or using the new, jam-packed dictionary of Word 2004 (which I've not spent anytime looking at yet) and accomplishing the whole thing in Applescript. (I am alot more familiar with Applescript, but like to learn both.) Any help or suggestion of a better group to ask in?
  • 5. Menu bar problem
    This is a problem I had once before but I can't remember how I solved it. When MS Word (from the MS Office 2001 suite for Macintosh) is open, the only items in the top menu bar which function are the Apple Menu, Fonts, and the Help menu (but not Word Help). All the other drop-down menus (File, Edit, View, Insert, Format, Tools, Table, Window and Work) are inactive. They are not dimmed; they just won't open. I have tried a couple of things to no avail: 1. I removed every MS Office file from both OSX and Classic MacOS 9.2.2 and reinstalled MS Office from the install CD. The problem persisted. 2. I networked to my wife's iMac whose MS Word works perfectly and copied over all her MS Office files. The problem still persisted on my G4. Here is my system configuration: PowerMac G4 (Gigabit Ethernet), Mac OS 9.2.2/OS X 10.3.7, 20GB HD with 8 to 10 GB free space; 703MB RAM; DSL connection; three external SCSI peripherals (Agfa scanner, 270MB SyQuest drive, 100MB Zip drive) connected to an Adaptec 2906 SCSI card; ethernet hub; two USB hubs; three external storage hard drives; Que! firewire CD burner; four printers. Many extensions.

Bullet styles

Postby Sol Apache » Tue, 13 Sep 2005 16:05:18 GMT

I am preparing several templates which need a few bullet styles and I have
found that if I create a new bullet in one template the bullet dialog box is
showing bullets labelled with styles from another template altogether, and
if I select a bullet style and change it to the style I need, the style in
the other template loses its bullets.

So we have only FIVE bullet styles to use throughout our **entire** Word

Is this true? (unbelievable if it is) Is there a workaround? Is it the same
in Word for Windows? Is Microsoft looking into this?

Thanks for any help

Hi Sol:

No, it's not true.  You can have as many as 200 bullets or numbering
styles in a document.

Each of those styles can have up to Nine levels (i.e. be attached to
nine paragraph styles).  However, the user interface will SHOW you
only the 14 most recently used in the document.

You refer to "bullet styles".  That's a good name for them, but it's
not the 'correct' name for them.  Internally, they are known as "List
Templates".  That is to remove the confusion, because they are NOT
styles.  A List Template can have ONE level, if it is a "Bullet" or
Numbered" list template, or it can have Nine levels, if it is an
Outline List Template.

A List Template can have a Paragraph style associated with it (or nine
styles...)  If it has, applying the Style (using Format>Styles...)
will apply the list template.  Applying the List Template (Using
Format>Bullets and Numbering...) will apply the styles.

1. To set up extra Bulleted styles in your document, first begin by
using an Outline Numbered list template.

2. Create the styles you need.  I recommend using List Bullet through
to List Bullet 9.  These are the defaults.  List Bullet and List
Bullet 2 through 4 will already exist in the document, if you need
more, create them.  Base each one on the one before it, and set the
tabs and indents and all the paragraph and font properties.

3. Now apply the top style (List Bullet) to a paragraph.

4. Click in Format>Style>Modify>Numbering>... and choose an Outline
List template closest to the one you want to end up with.

5. Click Customise

6. Click the MORE button

7. In Attached Style choose List Bullet

8. In the narrow field at the top left of the dialog, click Level 2

9. In the Style field, choose List Bullet 2

And so on...

This associates all of your Bullet styles with the same list template.
You can then switch from one bullet list level to another in the text
by clicking the Promote or Demote buttons (Same as Indent and
Out-dent, but active if you are in a list.

When you have associated the ninth style with a list template, create
another set of styles, choose a different list template, and do it all
again, until you have enough.

If you want to get really serious, use the Macro Recorder to record
yourself while you set up a set of bullet styles.  Then edit the code
to adjust what it does when you re-run the macro.

That's the basics: come back to us if you need more.

3.Layout - TOC, Heading Styles, Bullet Styles

We have reports that have TOC, 3 levels of heading styles, 2 levels of bullet 
styles.  How can I some how apply these individual items to a document that

Is it through a style set or  template reapplication?  If template how do we 
do a reapplication?  This is in Word 2007

4.Third level bullet style corrupts other styles

In my MS Word 2003 template, I have created bullets that are to be used in 
tables. (The text in my tables is one point smaller than regular body text.) 
I used Shauna Kelly excellent instructions ow to control bullets in 

I have created three levels of bullets and they look great, but other styles 
(headers, footers and cover page text) have suddenly become corrupted. 

The corruption is consistent: The corrupted styles have all been formatted 
with my third level table bullet style. They use the same bullet and are 
indented by the same amount as the third level table bullet style. When I 
remove the third level bullet, the corruption goes away.

Any idea on what is causing the problem and how I can fix it?


5.Problems creating bullet style ?s

Using Word 2008.

My objective is to have two types of list styles: one with numbers in 
level 1 and letters in level 2 and the other with numbers in level one 
and bullets in level 2.

I have created a List Style for 2 levels and created the two Paragraph 
Styles for those 2 levels. All was working well for several weeks.

Today, I tried to create a 2 level List Style with numbers in level 1 
and bullets in level 2.

So I created two Paragraph Styles very similar to the first ones and 
then I created multi level List Style with numbers in level 1 and 
bullets in level 2 and then linked those levels to the two just defined 
Paragraph Styles.

I've done this twice and both times my original List Style no longer 
works properly. No numbers in level 1 and and no letters in level 2.

So I erased my second multi-level List Style (numbers and bullets) and 
all is working well with my single multi-level List Style.

I hope I explained this clearly.

Any tips as to what I'm doing wrong are appreciated.

Thank you.
