  • 1. Line spacing and other anomalies in scanned text
    I'm currently working on a document (text only, one font throughout) that has been scanned (by someone else) from a printed book. I'm seeing a curiously anomaly with regard to line spacing. I marked the entire document and set spacing to 1.5, but some double-return paragraph spaces are still spaced singly. If I mark the text where this happens and look at Format/Paragraph, the spacing is reported as 1.5 even though it palpably is not. Is this an effect caused by the scanning procedure? Whether it is or not, how can I eliminate it and set the entire document to 1.5? I'm also seeing another oddity, though it's a less serious one: some words have their letters spaced more widely than is normal for the Courier New font I've set throughout (this is not due to full-width justification having being accidentally turned on). Again, is this just a side effect of the scanning? Many thanks. Bert
  • 2. Word 2007 question
    How do I close a document in Word 2007 without closing Word entirely? In the previous version of Word there was a small x in the upper right corner, underneath the X to close the program?
  • 3. Forms and linking text Boxes
    Good morning, I am not new to word or Basic forms for that matter how ever I am unable to work out one facet of forms that I wish to use. I have been sent a form in word 2003 which is 8 pages long. I have copied these eight pages and am able to edit my copy. 30 - 40 % of each page has the same information boxes, Name, address etc etc. I would like to know how I can link all the "address" text boxes on each page so that when I write info in the first address box it will also appear in the other address boxes -- Michele
  • 4. Formatting changes when documents are emailed
    I sometimes send Word documents to a friend. He uses Word 2003, I have 2000. The documents are relatively straightforward, using a single style and an uncomplicated layout, with only two sections, the second of which has different margin and tab settings to the first, and also page numbering. If my friend prints a document directly from the email attachment, my formatting is reproduced exactly. If, though, he saves the attached file to his hard drive and then prints it from there, the formatting goes awry. Specifically, the section break is ignored and the section two layout, complete with numbers, is applied to whole document. Is there anything that can be done to prevent this? Many thanks. Bert
  • 5. Anyway to get just the path without the filename?
    I can use the Filename field with the \p switch to get the filename including the path ({FILENAME \p }). Is there any way to get just the path without the filename?

word 2002 font screen takes a long time to appear

Postby T. Duprex » Sat, 30 Oct 2004 15:57:10 GMT

In an earlier post I reported that Word 2002 was not responding when I did 
Format/Font or Modified a Style.  To my amazement, the Font screen comes up 
but after what I'd consider an very long time (30 seconds plus). I was 
prematurely closing the font screen assuming it stopped responding. What 
would Word be looking for that initial request that is making take so long?
However, once it comes up it appears very quickly from that point on for 
that session of Word. When I reopen Word that first font screen takes a 
long time. I just upgraded to 2002 from Word 97 on my XP laptop. Is this 
normal behavior for Word 2002 and XP?

One other question. On my Windows 98 machine all the font icons were TT, 
with the XP machine some fonts show TT but most have an O icon but still 
has the .ttf file extension. COuld someone tell me what the O stands for?

TIA

I've found what was causing the Format/font screen delay: Search for a 
printer.

I had installed Word 2002 (upgraded from Word 97) on my laptop. I have my 
laptop networked to another computer to which my printers are attached. 
Apparently, Word '02 needs to know when you are Formating if a printer that 
is assigned is attached I would assume for some valid technical reason 
having to do with driver. This process was taking time. I poved it by 
connecting the printer directly to the laptop and Word behaved as I would 
expect it to.

I still would like to know about the "O" icon for true type fonts if anyone 
has an explination.

The O is for OpenType, a newer standard. To solve your printer problem, make
sure the driver is installed on the local machine even if you'll be printing
via a network.

Yes, Word will query the printer driver in order to display a valid 
font list.

You may not need the printer attach the printer directly to your 
laptop but rather have the printer driver installed locally. It sounds 
like the driver may be on the network. Try using removing the printer 
and add it back using the Add Printer Wizard to install a local 
driver.

Also, the "O" indicates the font is an OpenType font and are for 
cross-platform compatibility.

I had originally installed both a Minolta 1250W and Epson Photo 820 
printers on the laptop just in case I wanted to plug them in. Subsequently 
I networked them off my other computer to reduce cabling. Right now they 
are displayed when I view Settings/Printers. Even though I never deleted 
them Word apparently had difficulty until I either actually pluged the 
Minolta in and/or made it default. Is making a local printer the default 
printer the key. Up until I made it default I had the Networked Minolta as 
the default..and I guess that takes more time to do the font thing over the 
network.

Should I just uninstall/delete these printers and then add them again? Or 
just keep a local printer as default to speed things up?

Word will always format your document according to the currently selected
printer. When you start Word, it uses the Windows default printer, so this
can cause delays in opening if the default is on a network.

1.Word 2002 takes long time to open Word document with missing templ

I have many documents that were created in previous version of Word 2002 in 
the network, and they were attached to a template that has been moved or no 
longer exists in the previous server.

They are now being opened VERY slowly in word 2002 (takes 2-3 minutes for 
few pages document). There is nothing very unique about these documents, they 
do have some tables in them. It is very basic. 

Is there any fix or patch which can solve this problem without modifying the 
Word documents? Any help would be appreciated.

2.Microsoft Word 2002 takes a long time to start

Microsoft Word 2002 takes a long time to start (about 20 sec.). The 
application is on both my start menu and the desktop.



Is this the application's normal behavior and how would I shorten Word's

3.Word 2002 takes LONG time to open.

I have Word 2002 that came on a disk with MS Works. It was working fine. 
Recently, when trying to open Word, it takes a long time for it to open, 
usually will show the white and blue "word" box on the screen until it opens, 
which can range from 10-30 minutes. I have tried downloads/updates, tried 
uninstalling and then re-installing, but nothing seems to work. Any 
suggestions?
Any help is much appreciated. 
Thank you, Elaine

4.Office XP SP 2 "Save As" dialog box takes long time to appear

Hi there,

When I try to perform "Save As" in Office XP (SP 2), it takes a long time 
(about 2mins) for the "Save As" dialog box to appear. Kindly advise. Many 
thanks.

Regards,
Amee

5.Deleting block of text takes a long, long, LONG time

When I try to delete selected (highlighted) text, nothing seems to happen for 
a very long time. Word 2007 seems to just sit and think, and does nothing for 
30s to a minute. For very short pieces of text (several characters) it goes 
faster, for medium sized (1 page), the delay is unnaceptable.

This happens regardless of whether I use Backspace, Delete, Ctrl+X, or just 
type over selected text.

It's a very big issue when using any macros that rely on repeatedly 
pasting/deleting blocks of text, such as any of the translation tools that 
integrate with Word via macros (Trados, Logoport).

I'm using Word 2007 SP2 (and a computer fast enough to run most new games, 
so you'd think deleting 600 words would not be a problem...)

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
