  • 1. Creating active objects in Excel, and picking a colour.
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel Hello hello you good people. I'm finding the new templates in Excel '08 really bad and very limiting, especially invoicing! Anyway, I'm now creating my own sheets, but would like to use the check marks (little boxes that when clicked show a tick). These exist in the invoice templates (at the end of the columns, under 'mailed' or 'paid'. I know that in the 'draw shapes' part of the tool box there are check marks, but they are dead objects, and if you want a box to show that it is ticked, you have to search for the ticked box picture - they are not active! Can anyone help? Also, when choosing shading for a cell, does anyone know how I can choose a colour from a colour spectrum instead of being stuck with the extremely limited colours shown? Thank you so much.
  • 2. Installing Office2008
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I purchased the Office 2008 package - it seems the only way to install is via the CD. I just bought the iMac which doesn't come with a CD drive. Is there anyway to download the software or will I need to purchase an external drive?
  • 3. Cannot Connect for Download
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I am trying to connect to Microsoft for the latest Office 2008 download (I think it is 12.1.2) and every time I either use the AutoUpdate, or try to connect directly via the Mactopia site, I get a message that the url cannot be found, or the server is busy (this has gone of for 4 days now). The download DID work for my Power PC Mac update; what is wrong?
  • 4. Converting from a PC to a Mac
    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel Hi, I am migrating from a PC to a Mac. Will Entourage read the .pst file from the PC? or is there an import/export routine? or, is there some type of conversion process (software program)? 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, 
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.

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
