  • 3. Why do bullets print out differently than they look on screen?
    Until recently, everything was fine. I haven't changed or updated or done anything that I know of to Word, except for automatic Office updates. Now, instead of the bullet that I see on the screen (a pointing hand, a dot, an arrow), I get something else when I print (a clock, an Indian-looking number, an Arabic-looking figure...). What's happening? How can I fix it? Thank you.
  • 4. Optimizing Font Performance
    Hi there. I'm having a problem opening up all Office products. When I open Word, for instance, the first thing the title window shows is that it's "optimizing font performance," which is a normal setup that every program goes through upon opening. At that point though, it opens a separate window warning me that my font is corrupt and should be removed. I apparently have over 200 fonts that are suddenly corrupt because Word opens up a separate window for each font!!! I am using a Mac and my fonts are contained in a program called FontBook. I've tried to disable most of these fonts, but to no avail! These fonts are legit--it's even telling me that system fonts such as Times, are corrupt. These fonts work in other programs, however. Is there a way to turn off the "optimizing font performance" when I open Word, or do I need to reload every font on my system? Could there be a conflict between Office and FontBook? I have only recently started to have problems. Thanks for your help. :)

Macros disabled warning in MS Word doc with no macros

Postby RWFydGhtYW4 » Thu, 31 Dec 2009 00:09:01 GMT

Running MS Office Pro 2007 on XP Pro notebook.  MS Word document saved as MS 
Word 2003 for the benefit of associates.

When I open a particular document, I get "Security Warning: Macros have been 
disabled."  This particular document used to have macros, which I wrote to 
facilitate some actions, but I deleted them so that associates didn't need to 
deal with the warnings.  The macros were deleted using the VBA editor window.

Although the macros have been deleted, I still get the warning.  Is there 
still some remnant of the macros?  Where would the remnant be?  Is there a 
way to clear this up?

Thanks...

Some macro storage components may have been left over.

Try this:
Select Save As and select ich Text Forrmat (*.rtf)from the Save as type 
list.
Now your active document is the RTF-file.
Select Save As again. This time, select ord Document (*.doc)from the 
Save as type list (accept to replace existing file).

You may need to close and reopen the file in between the Save As operations 
however, in my test, it works without doing so.

For future reference, when working in Word 2007 you can save the
original document as a *.docx file instead of a *.rtf file, then open
that .docx and save as *.doc. That will also clear out any remaining
macro components.

I don't think there's any practical difference between *.rtf and
*.docx for this purpose. It's just another path to the same result.

1.Visio: enable/disable macro warning upon doc open: macro location

Visio 2003 Professional - 

Opening a document containing macros.

Receive warning to "enable" or "disable" macros.

Situation: you know the document is legitimate, but you are not sure if 
there is a macro or not.  How do you locate and view the macro source code 
that triggered the warning?

I open the document, click "enable" goto Tools->Macros,   there are no 
macros.  So what did I get prompted for if there are no macros?  This has 
been consistent, repeatable and annoying decision I have to make with 80% of 
the documents I receive. 

Any ideas on how to make an INFORMED choice instead of random: enable or 
disable?





2.Doc has no macros, but I'm prompted to enable/disable macros

I have a large Word file that contains many tables, 
graphics, etc. - but no links, and no macros.

However, when I open the file, Word informs me that the 
document does contain macros, and asks if I want to enable 
or disable them.

I can choose enable or disable, it doesn't matter. The 
point is that the document neither contains any macros, 
nor is it supposed to - yet Word prompts me to 
enable/disable them each time I open the file.

If I go to Tools/Macro/Macros, and select "Macros in" the 
document, it confirms that there are no macros there. I'm 
not having any virus issues whatsoever. I just want to 
know if there could be any macros "hidden" in the 
document, or if they may reside somewhere that I'm not 
seeing them, and how to delete them. Thanks!

3.how to disable warning box warning against MS Word trying to send an email

Hi all,

I use email in my office frequently.  I'd like to disable the Outlook
warning box
that cautions a "program is trying to send an email."    I use Windows XP
and Word 2000.  I know I saw a message when using a later version that
offered to disable or otherwise alter the warning.  Suggestions will be
appreciated.

4.Disabling macro warnings

Hi
Is there any way of disabling the warning ' The document you are opening contains macros. Some macros may contain harmful viruses ... and the enable/disable macro prompts?

I have several tables each paste linked as pictures from 7 individual excel workbooks to a single word doc.

Every time I open the doc all the workbook macro warning prompts come up one after the other.

Is thre any way I can set this word document to enable all the excel macros automatically without the annoying manual warning prompts?

TIA

Pete

5.Disabling macros warnings

Hi folks,  have read thru a similar thread in this forum but not sure that my 
situation fits the solutions listed in a previous thread from 2004.

I have created a brand new document from scratch using MS Word which is a 
feedback form on which a user can electronically select check boxes and type 
in comments.

The document 
- has had text copied into it from another document which i believe had no 
macros in it
- uses tables to create the look and feel of the feedback form
- has had no macros created or inserted by me 

My problem is that for some reason when i open the doc i get the "enable or 
disable macros" options.   I've never managed this before but I am new to 
this organisation so not sure if there are some settings i'm unaware of.

I want to send this document out to a large number of users without this 
warning.

Any ideas how i can disable the warning? is this coming from the normal.dot 
template?

Help.

Matt
