typing stops repeatedly, need to click on page



  • 1. page border problems bottom border missing
    I'm trying to put a border on 1 page when i use the "page border" the border shows up on the working page but on the print preview and when i print the border is missing.
  • 2. print a sample list of every font
    Does anyone know how I can print one of those sample font lists without doing all the manual work to set it up? A while ago I came across a way to print several pages, each with one line in a different font and each line read, "The lazy brown fox jumped over the fence" Or something like that... Thanks for your expertise! Sarah

  • 4. How do I toggle between "insert" and "replace."
    In previous versions of Windows, the zero-key on the numeric key pad would toggle between "Insert" and "Replace" when the NumLock key was off. With Windows XP/ Word 2007, the key no longer toggles; it is always in the "insert" mode. Is there some setting that I should be aware of that would make the Insert/Replace key functional?

typing stops repeatedly, need to click on page

While typing in Word 2003, I will get a line or perhaps 1/2 line typed then 
typing disappears and stops.  I have to click on page to resume typing.  What 
is causing this?

Something is stealing focus - possibilities include speech recognition, 
accidental contact with the over-sensitive touchpad of a laptop, anti-virus 
software or whatever else you have running at the time.
