  • 5. Global print settings - metric to inches
    I am using Office 2003 professional. When I am previewing a document in Excel or Access, the page settings for margins are in metric rather than inches. MSWord settings are in inches, so this is only effecting Access and Excel. How can I change the margin and page settings back to inches from mm and cm? Thanks.

Computer takes long time when clicking on font attibutes

Postby SuperCouilles » Thu, 29 Apr 2004 11:30:05 GMT


This occur when I load up Word, Excel or any other Office (2003) on a
P4-2.66/512Mb/WinXP :

When I click on the font size, or on the font, or if I click on BOLD, the
computer freeze for 10 secs - This does not occur if I click on ITALIC. Same
goes for PAGE SETUP - the computer will jam for at least 1/6 of a minute.

Anyway, after I did it once, the computer doesn't freeze anymore. If I quit
the application, load it up again, the computer freeze again... Until I
clicked once...

I installed all the fonts available with Office and some more (few Adobe

Any idea?

1.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.

2.word 2002 font screen takes a long time to appear

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?


3.Print Window takes long, long time to open

I'm using Outlook 2003 on WinXP Pro printing to network printers. On one 
machine, it takes a long, long time for the print window to open to choose 
options after typing File / Print, or Cntl + P.  I have downloaded & 
installed all patches & updates with no changes.  This is the only machine on 
the network with this problem, and all users experience the same problems 
when signed on to this machine.  The users on any other machine do not have 
this problem.  Once the window finall opens and click OK to send the job to 
the printer, it is fine.
  Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions to resolve this problem?  I 
appreciate any assistance.  Thanks!

4.Clearing cells takes long, long time

I am using Excel 2007 and I have a sheet that has about 22,000 rows of
data.  When I try to delete the data by all of the following methods
it takes well over three minutes to complete:

Highlight the data range and press the delete key
Highlight the data range and click Home, Clear, All or Home, Clear,
Hightlight the rows and press delete key of right click and delete

How can I speed this up?


5.Clearcontents takes long, long, time

I have some very simple code:

With Workbooks("Barcoded_Inv_2007_07.xlsm").Sheets("Raw_Data")


End With

This code has been running over ten minutes and has maxed out the
processor.  Ctrl-break will not stop it.  Automatic calculation is
turned off.

There is data in A3:AA:XXXXX

I just need to erase all the formulas and values in that range so I
can write new data there.
