My horizontal scroll bar has disappeared on all docs, old & new

Every document I open to edit or copy, or any new document I open in InDesign does NOT have a horizontal scroll bar, but DOES have a vertical scroll bar. This is new and I have always had 2 scroll bars. HELP! I can't seem to find it in any pull-down menus, or anywhere. Any suggestions are appreciated. (Yes, I've turned everything off and it's still the same.)

Have you searched for updates to InDesign? Have you looked at Adobe's Knowledge Base? I imagine that the typeface isn't supported by Adobe, but you may be able to get one that is, from Adobe: CLICK HERE.

Hi i cant edit my documents on 2007 microsoft office, its saying locked modifications


You may have the document open twice. I would completely turn off the computer and then start it up again and try to open them.
Occasionally I will run into a similar problem, so what I do is copy the document and paste it into another doc. Then you should be able to edit it. Then delete the first doc, as it may have become corrupt.

Translate a pagemaker file into indesign


This is from Adobe InDesign (CS3) Help module:
Convert PageMaker documents InDesign can convert document and template files from Adobe PageMaker 6.0 and later. When you open a PageMaker file, InDesign converts the original file information to native InDesign information. InDesign files are saved with an .indd filename extension.
For more information, see the PageMaker Conversion Guide (PDF) at www.adobe.com/go/learn_pmconv. Before opening the document in InDesign, you may want to do the following:
  • If the PageMaker file or its linked graphics are located on a network server, floppy disk, or removable drive, it may not open as expected if an interruption in data transfer occurs. To prevent data transfer problems, copy documents and their links to the hard disk, preferably in the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored, before opening them in InDesign.
  • You may want to use Save As in PageMaker to clear unnecessary hidden data.
  • To ensure that all links are maintained, copy all linked files to the same folder where the PageMaker publication is stored.
  • Make sure that all necessary fonts are available in InDesign.
  • Repair broken graphics links in the PageMaker publication.
  • If you have a problem converting a large PageMaker document, convert portions of the PageMaker file separately to isolate the problem.
If you cannot open a corrupt PageMaker document in PageMaker, try opening it in InDesign. InDesign can recover most documents that PageMaker cannot open.

Opening files at correct size and quality in indesign cs2


This is from the InDesign help file.  I think it explains what you're experiencing:
    When you place a graphic, its original file is not actually copied into a document. Instead, InDesign adds a screen-resolution version of the file to the layout, so that you can view and position the graphic, and creates a link, or file path, to the original file on disk. When you export or print, InDesign uses the links to retrieve the original graphics, creating the final output from the full resolution of the originals.
    Links can help minimize the size of a document by storing graphics outside the document file. After placing a graphic, you can use it many times without significantly increasing the size of the document; you can also update all links at once.
    If the bitmap image you place is 48K or smaller, InDesign automatically embeds the full-resolution image, instead of the screen-resolution version in your layout. InDesign displays these images in the Links palette, so that you can control versions and update the file whenever you like; however, the link is not necessary for optimal output.
    Note: If you move a document to another folder or disk (for example, if you take it to a service provider), be sure you also move the linked graphics files; they are not stored inside the document. You can copy all related files automatically, using the Preflight and Package features.

Editing a document that has no security on it


This is an interesting problem. Since you've already tried copy/paste to a new document, I'll assume you don't care about the file so much as the text in it.

First, make a copy of the file and let's experiment with that.

You said you cannot copy the text, but I'm not sure if that is because you cannot "select" the entire text of the document or because the copy function is simply not working on that file. If you're able to open the document at all, try using keyboard commands to perform the copy/paste. Open the doc and leave the cursor at the beginning of the text. Then attempt to select all the text by pressing Ctrl-A. If that works, then press Ctrl-C. Leave the document open and press Ctrl-N to open a new doc page. Then press Ctrl-V and see if the text pastes in. One important thing to know would be if the text pastes but exhibits the same 'symptom'. If so, attempt an EDIT, PASTE SPECIAL and try pasting "unformatted text". Unfortunately, that method will also remove your formatting.

Here's another approach that may allow you to retain most MS Word formatting items. Click START, RUN and type "wordpad" .. Then hit ENTER. This launches MS Wordpad which should be able to open most .doc files. Use the FILE, OPEN menu items to locate and attempt to open the document in question. If from here you are able to select all the text (Ctrl-A) and copy it (Ctrl-C) and paste it (Ctrl-V) into a new doc file, then we will move on to another possible option.

Another approach would be to download one of the many different .doc repair utilities that exist. There are a number of free ones as well.. repairmyword.com advertises a number of free utilities you may have luck with.

Hopefully one of these will help fix the matter... if not, let us know!

Good luck!

I have certain text on a CD disk that I would like to edit. Computer tells me when I try, that it is "read only". How do I change mode to "read/write" to permit editing?


CD's are normally "read only", so the edited files cannot be saved back to the same CD.

You need to copy the documents you want to edit to your PC, edit, then save them to the PC. At some point, you may want to create a new CD with the edited files.

Put the CD in the computer, open up "My Computer". Double click on the CD (probably the "D:" drive) and right click on the file you want to edit, and choose "Copy".

Now go to "My Documents" on your computer (you can use the Start button to find it), and open that folder.

Right click again, and choose Paste.

Doubleclick the newly pasted file, and Word will allow you to edit and save it. You might want to use "Save As" instead of "Save" and give it a different name. So, Doc1.doc becomes Doc1a.doc or something similar.

There are other ways to do this - I'm giving you the most basic method.

Saved document is now lost


I strongly suspect that the files have been saved to a directory that you were not intending to use, hence my suggestions to locate the files.

First option: Open the program (a blank document will do) and select File - Save As . . .

Look at the top of the dialog box and check where the files are being saved to. If the files are there and the location is not where you thought it should be - select the files you want and RIGHT Click these, select copy (for safety) and manouvre to the Folder where you want the documents to be located (use the drop down list at the top of the dialog box) - when you have opened the correct location, Right Click in the opened folder and select Paste.

You will still need to go into the Tools - Options menu in the program and find where files are automatically saved and change this to your desired location. This saves having to check the Save As . . dialog box everytime you want to save a new document.

Second option: Open Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer) which can be found under the Start Button - All Programs - Accessories. In the Search box either type in the name of the document (if this is known) or just *.doc (or whatever the extension is eg *.xls). Note the "*" is a wild card symbol which means that it will match any and all letters or numbers in any combination and then followed by ".doc". This will find ALL documents that end in ".doc" not just the ones you are looking for!

The first search will only find files in the open Folder that match the query. I'm guessing that your files are not there. Now select Advanced Search and select C:\ to be searched. This will now find ALL files ending in ".doc" on the hard drive.

View the results as "Details". Locate your files (select "name" as the sort order to make this simpler). If you had a new document and just hit the Save button (or selected Save under File), then the files could be named as the first few words of the document - so look for this as well.

In the details section will be the Pathway to the files (eg C:\Samsung\Inprocessor\Drivers\Resume.doc). You can then go to this directory and using Edit - Cut (or Copy) remove the file from there, then open the directory that you want the file to be placed in (eg Documents) and again using Edit - Paste to put the file into that directory.

Good luck.
