the tab key has stopped indenting outlines to next level



  • 1. multiple indexes
    I need to create two indexes in my document, one in chapter 11 and one in the final chapter, 14. The index entries in chapter 11 should not be incorporated in chapter 14, so the index in chapter 14 shall take all indexentries up to and including chapter 10 and again from chapter 12 up to and including chapter 14 and the index in chapter 11 shall only take indexentries from chapter 11. How do I make this possible, I tried creating bookmarks but it doesn't seem to do it for me. Any suggestions kind regards Allan

  • 3. can you make turabian citations by footnote instead of in-text
    I'm writing a paper and Turabian style is required. I take a quote from a book which i must then cite. I click on "style: turabian", I then click "insert citation", put the info in the required fields for a new source, click "OK" and the info shows up after the quote in parenthesis e.g. "St. Augustine was heavily influenced by Neo-Platonism." (Warner 2000). I want the option to put the citation at the bottom of the page as a footnote; e.g. 1. Michael Warner, Neo-Platonism in Augustine's Theology, (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2000), 292. ya dig? :) "finalword" wrote: > Can you explain further?

  • 4. Too many \ls indices for Word 2003 to handle?
    Hello, Is there a known issue with Word 2003 getting lost after a certain number of listoverrides? Our software produces RTF files with typically 100+ sections, each of which has its own list formatting (its own \listids with accompanying \listoverrides in the RTF). So section 1 would reference \ls1 for its list formatting, section 2 \ls2 and so on. After about the 57th section, Word 2003 stops displaying paragraph numbers for the list levels. If I go into the RTF and manually change, say, section #87 to use \ls1 rather than \ls87, that particular section's paragraph numbers display just fine (even if I change \ls87 to \ls1 for just one paragraph, that one paragraph's numbers show fine). This leads me to think Word 2003 is getting lost after a certain \ls index. The same document displays just fine in Word 2007. I've thoroughly examined the RTF to make sure it's formed correctly, including the list templates. There is nothing different about the list structures referenced after \ls57 that would cause the numbers to not appear. I have Service Pack 3 for Office 2003 installed. Have there been any fixes since then that address numbering issues? Would love to have our customers apply a fix rather than have to hack the RTF control to compare list structures and keep only content-unique ones. Any help would be appreciated more than you can realize! -D

The tab key no longer allows me to indent an outline bullet to the next 
level.  Shift +Tab doesn't work either.  They both used to work.  Is there a 
setting that may have been messed up?  I am running Word 2002.

Try Tools - AutoCorrect - AutoFormat As You Type, and click to enable "Set 
left- and first-indent with tabs and backspaces".

Thanks Herb.  That did the trick.  Everything works great now!


Similar Threads: key does not move text to next hierarchial level in outline fo

Every now and then something in my Word formatting seems to change and when I 
try to make indented bullets (hierarchical outlines), the tab key does not 
move the text down to the next level.  How to do I fix this?


2.Cannot tab to next level in word 2007 outline

I am writing an outline in Word 2007 on Vista and cannot promote a line 
using the tab key.  Instead it actually inserts a tab (imagine that).

How do I fix this?

Thanks, bob

5.Tab key not increasing indent for Outline Numbering

I have some how gotten my installation into a wierd state 
that doesn't allow the TAB key to increase (or decrease) 
the indent level when I'm in Print Layout View.  I have 
to use the Increase Indent (or Decrease Indent) icon on 
the format toolbar (which I had to add).  When I'm in 
Outline View the tab increases the indent level (but of 
course doesn't actually indent because of the view).

I have compared my configuration options with a system 
that works as expected.  I have "repaired" from the 
installer, reinstalled from the installer, and I have 
even tried copying the "Program Files\Microsoft Office" 
folder off the working system onto my system, but nothing 
seems to clear up this strange configuration setting.

I'm sure that I am missing something obvious, and I'll be 
embarrased when I figure it out (or someone helps me), 
but for now I'm stumped.  Anyone with any ideas?
