Word Perfect wants to always save document as new document

In some, but not all of my Word Perfect documents, every time I make a minor change and want to save the document, it requires that I save it as a new document. Is there any way to fix this?

How to save your Open/Libre Office documents by default in Microsoft Office...


There are many people out there who are looking for great open source software, and some of you have stumbled upon Open Office or Libre Office. This is a great alternative to Microsoft Office but with one small problem. It is always trying to get you to save in the Open Document format instead of a Microsoft Office format that your friends and coworkers can open and use. Well I am going to show you a solution to this problem!

Open up any of the programs in the Open/Libre Office suite. Once it is open go into the Tools menu and select "options". From there, expand the Load/Save option and then select "general"

Near the bottom you will see a heading for "Document Type". Select the dropdown box under that and select "Text Document" and then select the dropdown box under "Always Save as" and then select "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP". After that go back to the "Document Type" and select "Spreadsheet" and set always save to "Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP". Lastly Choose "Presentation" and always save as "Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP". Once you do this hit "OK" and your changes will be saved. From now on everytime you save a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet or a PowerPoint presentation it will by default save as a Microsoft Office format!

I have a short video now on Vimeo site. How can I find the URL to address users to view it?


One way: When you access your video, I presume you are online when viewing it?
If so,...
  • Navigate your cursor to the web address line
  • Left click 1 time
    • The complete address should appear AND be highlited
    • If not, right click... You should get some sub commands?
    • If yes, choose: 'Select All'
    • It should now be completely highlited
  • Now Right click again,
  • Choose Copy
  • Left click
You have now temporarily saved the web address of your video to the Clipboard. Open a word / note processor.
i.e. - Word, Word Perfect, Notepad, Word Pad, Works Processor, etc. now... Start a NEW Document. You should now be in an active new document. You will now "Paste".
Either Right click, then choose Paste and Left click to bring your saved web address/URL of your video.
You should now SAVE this new document, name it what you wish.
Or you can paste by holding down the control key and hit "V". Same result.
Now just navigate to this saved document at any time to copy and paste to your friends, social media, etc.

Need to make word documents read only until they are saved as another file name and can then be altered


Open the document and do a "Save as" and make sure the file type is set to .DOT
That will make it a template file.

I can't open my docs yet I KNOW they haven't been deleted because I am able to email them. How do I fix this?


MS Word offers several different views in which you can read and work on documents.
The view you are using when you save a document will be the default view when you open that same document the next time.
Likewise, if you open a document created by someone else, the view in which they saved it will be the default for that file unless you change it and save it again.
You can change your default Word template, though, so that new Word documents always open in the view of your choice.

Close any Microsoft Word documents or windows on your computer.
Locate the \"Normal.dot\" file on your computer.
This is the default template for all new Word documents. If you are using Windows XP, navigate to \"c:\\documents and settings\\username\\application data\\Microsoft\\templates\", changing \"username\" to your user name on the computer.
For Windows Vista or Windows 7, go to \"c:\\users\\username\\appdata\\roaming\\Microsoft\\templates\", again, changing the username to your user name on Windows.

Right-click \"Normal.dot\" and select \"Open.\"
A new Word document will open, which is actually the default document template.

Change the view to the one you desire.
To do so in Word 2003, go to the \"View\" menu and click on the view you want to use.
In Word 2007 or 2010, go to the \"View\" tab and select a view.

Type something into the document and then delete it.
This allows Word to recognize that a change has been made to the template without adding any unwanted items.
Click the \"Save\" button or press the \"Ctrl\" and \"S\" keys to save the changes to your default Word template.

How do I add text to a scanned document?


Hello,

Below instruction might be helpful to you.

With the PDF document open in Acrobat 7 Standard or Professional, choose File > Save As. In the Save As dialog box, choose Microsoft Word Document from the Format (Mac) or Type (Windows) pop-up menu. Then simply click the Save button, and open the document in Word for editing. The conversion may not be perfect, depending on factors such as the complexity of the layout, and whether you have the document's fonts on your system. For simple business documents, Acrobat's Save As command does a decent job of converting to Word.

Thank you.

Not sure if you help with software problems but its worth a try. I recently updated from office 1997 to office 2003 student/teacher edition. I need to do extensive edit to many old Word documents by...


If you are a Word 2003 user, but some of your colleagues are still using Word 2002 or even Word 97, you can share your documents with them as long as you save them in the standard Word document format. By having Word 2003 save your documents in this format, you can disable features not supported by the earlier versions and allow users to open your documents on their PCs.
If you don't want to do this every time you save a document, you can have Word automatically save your new documents in the correct format. Follow these steps:
  1. Go to Tools | Options.
  2. Click the Save tab.
  3. Under Default Format, click the drop-down arrow in the Save Word Files As box and select Word 97-2003 Document(*.doc).
  4. Click OK.
When you save your Word 2003 document, you will get a dialog box warning that some of the features that you used may not be available in the earlier versions. Click Yes to save it in the standard format that you'll share with the other users.

Microsoft Word malfunction


try this:
1. you may not have user permissions to make changes to the document:
check with the document creator or save the file with a different name so you become the new owner of the new document.
2. check if destination folder has enough room:
if not change the location of the file to be saved.
3. you may be using incorrect characters given the file name when saving the file:
don't use "/" when saving the file.
