  • 1. How to open Microsoft Office 2004 with Microsoft Office 2004 and not with Microsoft Office 2008 on Mac?
    In my case it is true. If I change via Get Info to open a particular Office 2004 file (Word, Excel or PowerPoint) with Office 2004, it always opens after double clicking it with such Office 2004 application, even if no application is previously open. Actually, right when I make such selection via Get Info, the fseventer.app indicates that the Office 2004 file has been changed (but does not inndicate how and Console says nothing as previously said). So, indeed, the file is changed. So, if anyone could determine which change is made using the Get Info, it should be possible to create a method to change them all wich works. --------------------- On 2010-05-04 12:29:46 +0200, CyberTaz < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > said: > This is not a valid assumption :-) > > On 5/4/10 1:54 AM, in article 2010050407545975249-nospam@nospamcom, "Tony" > < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote: > >> which means that the appropriate changes are made for such file for >> ever, > > That does not happen. > > Regards |:>) > Bob Jones > [MVP] Office:Mac

    How to open Microsoft Office 2004 on Mac with Microsoft Office 2004 and not with Microsoft Office 2008 on Mac? If both Microsoft Office 2004 and Microsoft Office 2008 are installed on the Mac, the latter opens all Microsoft Office 2004 files (.doc, .ppt and .xls) by default. I know that it was intended as a feature, but it is a real pain, nightmare and tremendous waste of time if you have both Microsoft Office 2004 and Microsoft Office 2008 installed on the same Mac. And must have both. Amazingly, if the File - Get Info - Open with is changed to the corresponding Office 2004 application (Word, Excel or PowerPoint), it works as expected and fixes the problem for such single file, but if the "Change All" button is clicked, then such file and the rest are open with Microsoft Office 2008 applications. What??!! I mean, if the "Change All" button is NOT clicked, then the Open with works as expected, so, it must do something to the file (yet, Console says nothing!). Anyone can figure it out and make a macro or application or whatever to change all such Office 2004 files with a single click for all (I have thousands of such Office 2004 files and I cannot afford to change them on a one-by-one basis; I would need months or years!), so that they are always open with Office 2004 applications (Word, Excel or PowerPoint) and not Office 2008 applications. Thanks.

can't save files in subfolders using Word

Postby taylorgriffin » Sat, 18 Nov 2006 14:07:16 GMT

I'm running Word on a Mac running OS X.  When I go to save a file in
Word, it only gives me the option to save in the root files like
"Documents" or "Applications."   How do I save the file into a
subfolder?  On a PC, I would double click to open the folders until I
got to the folder I needed.  That doesn't work here.  Can someone help?
 I'm sure this is something obvious I'm missing.

Thanks -
Taylor

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,




Click the blue triangle next to (to the right of) the Save As inputbox. 
Office uses standard MacOS dialogs for saving. Clicking the triangle 
will open a navigation pane on the Save As dialog.

2.Word 2003: File-Save As- not displaying subfolders

Hi,
  When trying to do a File->Save As to a network drive, I drill down to a 
subfolder and should see 50 or so subfolders to save a file in.  I do not see 
these subfolders.  I go to Windows Explorer and see them fine.  Another 
directory structure on the same network drive displays all the subfolders in 
it's tree just fine -- just not this one.  I couldn't tell any difference 
(and it has worked in the past -- not sure what changed).  Any ideas as to 
why the subfolders don't display in the "File - Save As" "Save In:" aren't 
being displayed?

thanks,

3.unable to save in Word using "file -save" or "file - save as"

In the last couple of days, I have been unable to save in Word using - File,

is the only operation I am allowed to do. I send error messages to Microsoft.

4.[AoE II] I can't save/test a scenario using AI file :^(

Hello

Using the AoE II's scenario editor, I have this message when I test/save
a scenario that use an AI file :
Could not load "TRIBE_World :: save_scenario_main because it is an
incompatible version"
Report this problem to the publisher 

No response until now :^(

I tried AoE II (1.03 French version) under MacOS 9.1 and MacOS X 10.2
and AoE II 1.05 (the 1.03 French version with the 1.05 updater) under
the same MacOS versions with the same problem.
But I can use all scenarios and all AI files selected from the random
game selector ("Jeu standard" in french) without any problem. So I don't
think the problem is with the scenario/AI files.
The AI files I tried come from the Web, the AoE II Cd and from me with
the same results :^(

Any idea ?
(Is there a French 1.05 Updater ?)
Regards
