If they can open it just fine, then what is the problem?
A form of a question would make answering much easyer:)

Im asuming you meants that they cant open it. Thats because Mac and Windows are two different O/S's and have different file formats. you will need to get some kind of compatibility software to view them back and forth depending on what it is your sending them.

    Did you create the document on the Mac P.C. or did it come from someone with a Windows P.C.?

    What program originally created it?

    If it works on a Windows operating system program , then it probably wont work on a mac unless you some how convert it.

    You may be able to find a free one or you may have to purchase some software.

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 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

I can't seem to open attachments on my mac, it looks like something is happening and then I can't find the file to print it...I am a new user and confused

If they are pdf attachments, then you have to download the free adobe reader or update your adobe version.  If they are word docs, then you should have a word comparable software to open it up.
Change your settings to download the document on your desktop instead of in a folder so that you can always find the doc to print.  Then you can drag the doc off the desktop and into what ever folder you like.  Also, just type the name of the doc in the search window and all the docs with that name will show up.
