    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I just installed the student/educ version of 2008 and am searching help files. When I enter "document elements" to learn how to get rid of that panel over Word, the help returns "creating applescript..." Nothing to do with what I wanted. I also searched for "increase font size" to learn how to get the up and down arrows on the menu to increase/decrease font. Nothing remotely about this topic appears. What is with the help system? Why can't I simply find the icons I want on the menu bars like with the older versions? Where the heck are they hidden?

  • 4. word 4 files not opening
    Version: 2004 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I am having problems running word 4 (student version) on my new Mac os. Some of my files will open and other simply won't and either I get the rainbow twirling ball and the computer locks up or I get an error message saying either the file is corrupt or it is not a valid version of MS word. I trashed the trial version MS word 8 that came with my Mac. I really need the word 4 files--my work is in it and I thought maybe I could not have both on the same computer. But it remains a problem. Sometimes I get this weird little Terminal in my bar, which I understand is an application of some time--but I have no idea what it does, or even if it has any meaning.;-)

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, 
save or File, save as. The system snarls up with the egg timer displayed 
until I end this by pressing the cross in right hand corner of screen. This 
is the only operation I am allowed to do. I send error messages to Microsoft. 
Please help

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

Just recently, I have been unable either to open any Word files or save any files. When I try to do so, I get the beach ball and find that Word is "not responding"
