  • 5. Timeline
    I use Word 2003 in Office Student and Teacher Edition 2003. I'm currently I writing or trying to make a timelines, i.e. timeline which refer to verb tenses. When I write, I pick my point of view (POV) by indicating where I am in time--the NOW. From that "now" I use my verb tenses, past, present, future, simple, perfect, progressive, and perfect progressive tensesl--Whatever. A timeline helps me see where I am, was, and will be, and the scenes associated with where I am, was, and will be. Word 2003 provides a template for a timeline, but I can't figure out how to change the bubble boxes, which I use above or below a time frame, e.g.e 1965, I can't figure out how to change them from square or rectangle to the provided template's rectangle with an arrow pointing to the time frame, e.g. 1966. Can anyone help?

How to a find the length of rotated line?

Postby Z2ZhY2tlbG1hbm4 » Tue, 20 Jul 2004 13:06:13 GMT

Word 2002 gives the "size" of a rotated line in terms of the lengths of the two lines that would form a right-triangle with the line. I don't want to have to use Pythagoras to determine the length of a rotated line. I've tried unrotating the line, so that it's parallel to the horizontal or vertical axis, but that's fiddly. Any suggestions?

G'day "gfackelmann" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

Word rasterizes EVERYTHING. True vector objects are ripped to an
onscreen bitmap and that's all you can really play with. Thus
Pythagoras and our other trigonometric friends are here to stay :-)

4.Line.drawtrasform, render wrongs (vector length> ~380)


I use for my graphics program Line.drawtransform to plot a simply sinus 
wave. When I use less then ~380 vectors, then the sinus will be correctly 
But when I set a higher linelist (Vector3[>380]) more then 380, the video 
card crashed. After that all drivers of the video card are updated, so this 
don't resulted in a chrash any more. 
But the sinus will not be correctly drawn above the 380? I see lines from 
(0,0) over the hole viewport.
When I set in directX debugger, to debug all, things then i get an microsoft 
I don't know what is wrong.
How can i found more information about this exception.
Is there a bug in drawtransform or what do i wrong?
