  • 2. How do I create a template with images?
    I am looking to create a template in word where images are in the background of the document, ie I am able to ab over them and insert text boxes over them at will. I have a jpg which I created in illustrator that I would like to be this background. I have tried using it as "behind the text" but it invariably is shifted around with the text and becomes impossible to work with when formatting a 40 page proposal. I am going nuts with this, if anyone has any help or advice I would really appreciate it as the Microsoft word Help has not been that helpful Also, I have tried creating an image in illustrator that is 8.5x11 and using it as a fill for background but word zooms in on one partiucular part of it. and does not fit it to the page. I am really loooking to create something akin to the header/footer, that is there but does not interfere with the text. I would be much obliged for any help!!!!!

  • 4. Marking the position of word wrap
    Is there any way of replacing text automatic word wraps in a text box with text such as <wordwrap/>? What I am trying to do is create a small template that editors can type in text, and pased on automatic word wrapping features in MS Word they can see how it would display in an online application. Without going into details of the online application, it needs to know the position of the automatc word wraps. Any help would be greatly appreciated. - Eric
  • 5. Carets in field codes, eliminating
    How do I prevent the "carets" that enclose a field code from appearing in my document? (These carets are actually the "lesser than" and "greater than" symbols that enclose a field code.) I'm using Word 2007. Scenario: I want the Document Title and Version Number that is typed on the cover page to appear in the footers. To achieve this, first I created a style named "Document Title." Then I created a content control on the cover page and applied the Document Title style. On the footer, I inserted a field code by clicking/selecting: Insert > Quick Parts > Field > Links and References > StyleRef > Document Title. I repeated these same steps for a Version Number. After typing the document title and verion number in the applicable content controls on the cover page, they appear in the footer, but the "carets" are still there. For example, if I type Training Manual Version 3.0 on the cover, this is what appears in my footers: <Training Manual><Version 3.0> Thank you in advance for your assistance.

The text boxes in my word 2007 document do not show when I am editing the 
document. They do show up on print preview and print to hardcopy?

What gives?

Hi Eddy,

Try editing the document in 'Print Layout' view - see on the Ribbon's View tab.
