How can i type a paper on my macbook?


The same way you do on a pc- use a word editing program!
All joking aside, you can use Word (if you have the Mac version of Office installed), or you could install Open Office (open source suite of programs that do the same thing as word- except the cost is nothing instead of $$$)
Bar that, you could use the equivalent to Notepad (most systems have a text editor that is very bare-bones, but would get the job done.)

How can i unhighlite the text in macbook word 2008


JUST READ THROUGH
Just wondering if anyone else was having issues with Microsoft Word from MS Office 2008, where you open the application, you type a few sentences, and the application freezes with the spinning circle of death that won't go away until you click the dock where it says "application not responding" and do a force-quit? You can leave the circle spinning for 10-20-30 minutes, and it never goes away.

Now for the weird part--this error only happens for me when I'm using a specific document on my computer. I can open Word, start a new document, type several paragraphs of text, and it works fine. But I've been working on an existing paper for about two months that all of a sudden started causing these freezes/crashes when editing it. It's about 30 pages roughly, no images, no big inserts that would take up a lot of memory (116 kb in size). And up until today, there were no problems. So why all of a sudden can't I edit anything on this paper without freezing the program?! I downloaded the Microsoft Office 2008 Service Pack 1 that was just released after this problem started, and ran all the recent Java and program updates through Software Update with computer restarts. I even copied the text from the Word document I was working on, pasted it into a new document, tried saving it as both .doc and .docx, and again the program still freezes when working with that text in a new file. This one baffles me. It's like the text within a document is somehow freezing the application. One thing I did notice is that the freezes seem to happen when I'm scrolling using a mouse wheel. Not always, but quite a bit. I suppose this is some memory issue related to several pages of text that the program can't render or process when you add new lines of text or scroll, but again, I can't figure why this paper I've been working on for months all of a sudden decided to start freezing Word today. Can you really only have 30 double-spaced pages of text in Word before it crashes?

Looks like I've found my reason to switch to Open Office, since I'm 3-4 days out from a

Does the mac come with a program for typing papers?


There are scores of downloadable word processing programs for the MACBOOKS that are free from CNET.com Google has online programs that emulate Microsoft office format as does Openoffice.org. I would suggest looking at them for no cost solutions, especially if you are going to print out hard copies of documents only or need to collaborate over the web.

However if you want compatible documents, or ones that are able to be shared with others possibly not on MAC platform, like professors on Windows, etc. then you will need to purchase Microsoft Office for MAC. Check with your school as well. If they are on the MAC platform many times the school will provide the software via an enterprise license agreement with Apple/Microsoft. If in the end you have to foot the bill for the program and load it physically, be sure and get the educator discount, it substantially cuts the cost. You can do a search at Microsoft.com or Apple.com for the online purchase options and use EDUCATOR or STUDENT as keywords.

I need to type a paper for class. how do i start? i have a laptop.


In order to type a paper for your class, on your Macbook, you would need a word processing application, in order to accomplish this. The most commonly used application, believe it or not,is Microsoft Office for Mac 2008 or the earlier version, 2008. However, if you don't have a copy of either and do are not moved to shell out several hundred dollars or more, I have another option for you.

Try Open Office for Mac. It is free and it does not take long to set up on your Mac.

Here are two key links for you to review for more info
FAQs about Open Office (Aqua) for Mac
Download Open Office for Mac OS X (Intel) Aqua

The word processing application you will need to use in Open office, is caller Writer" and it saves in all the formats that are readable in Microsoft Word for both the Mac and the PC.

If you have more questions on using this open source free software, please let me know. Always glad to help!
