  • 1. MS OFFICE for MAC / Freezes after successful installation ?
    Version: 2004 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) Hello, I installed my Microsoft Office 2004 for Mac Student and Teacher Edition (third license) and I have a successful installation (erasing previous ms office programs, no other programs running, etc). However, when it's all said and done, I launch any of the new programs and they launch but midway they freeze, right when the "OPTIMIZING FONT MENU" message underneath the program icon appears. Nothing else happens, it just spins and spins freezing. Any advice? I'm running apple OS X 10.3.9 Thanks!
  • 2. Student Teacher 2008 Cannot open files
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: intel I am using the Student teacher edition 2008. I cannot open some files that are email to me. It is not specific with word, excel, or power point. It does it with all of them. But if I go to a windows computer and try to open the exact same file it works fine. I have tried saving it to my desktop, documents, downloads, etc. Tried renaming the files. I have reinstalled office, ran all the latest updates, etc. I have tried opening these from entourage, or a webmail. Yahoo, and Gmail. The error that I get says: the file cannot be accessed. The file may be read only, or you may be trying to access a read-only location, Or, the server the document is stored on is not responding. If anyone can shed some light on this issue it would be appreciated.
  • 3. Best graphics for use in Word
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) Processor: Power PC We create electronic letterheads etc for clients, many of them PC users and find that both onscreen and printed versions are not clear as the artwork they have been generated with (illustrator). We have been told that Word creates a different preview of a jpg, thereby losing quality etc. Does anyone have any ideas, suggestions?
  • 4. Autoupdate.app behind proxy server.
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) Processor: Power PC Hi All Is there any way to get the autoupdate.app to work behind a proxy server/autoconfig file? I have about 70 users that I have to email and rely them to install the patches rather than using the 'autoupdate' to do the job. I hoping some clever bugger has found a way of making the flippin thing work... Thanks in advance. Laurence.
  • 5. iPhone and Office 2008 Sync
    I just upgraded to Office 2008 from 2003. I had no trouble synching my Entourage contacts and calendar with my iPhone. When I first installed 2003, the folks at the Apple Store set it up so that all my contacts were synched between Entourage, iCal/Address Book and the iPhone. Now, Entourage doesn't sync, but I still have my iPhone synching with iCal/Address Book, but it's not talking to Entourage. Any suggestions? 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,
 Greg

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
