Editing a document that has no security on it

Hi - I have a document created 5 years ago in word. When I open it and try and move the cursor to the 2nd paragraph to edit it, the cursor moves to the top and will not let me. I canot copy and paste it to another document. If I check the security under tools, properties and options there is no protection on it. Is it because the word I am using now is incapatable because the document is so old and what can I do to resolve?

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!

How to view total editing time updated in Real time in Word 2007



The total amount of time that a document has been edited is useful for lawyers, consultants, and other professionals who bill for their time.
Knowing how long you have spent working on a document enables you to provide a more accurate accounting of your time.
If you have a time budget that you’re trying to stick to, you may find yourself constantly checking the document’s Properties dialog box to view the Total editing time value.
Rather than wasting time performing that chore, add the EditTime field to your document.
Word’s EditTime field displays the total time, in minutes, that the document has had the system focus (and, presumably, has been edited) since the time at which the document was
created. This is the same as the Total editing time value displayed in the Statistics tab of the document’s Properties dialog box.
Follow these steps to add some code that displays the total editing time with the word minutes added for clarity:

1. Type some descriptive text (such as Total Editing Time).
2. Press Ctrl+F9 to start a new Word field (signified by the { and } braces).
3. Between the field braces, type the following:
EDITTIME # “0 minutes” * mergeformat
4. Press F9 to complete and update the field.

Now all you have to do is update the field (or simply press F9) to check the total editing time instead of going in the properties tab to see total time worked on the document.

Lg DVD RH735T is there a way of making it region free


Have a look at http://www.videohelp.com/dvdhacks There is no hack yet posted for the RH735T. But you could try the hacks that work for similar LG models on the offchance that they'll also work for your 735. If you find it works, then update the site and say so. It will help others as you have just been helped now. :)

1.Switch Player ON
2.Hold the CLEAR button on the remote control whilst
pressing and holding the programme down button on the player
for 6 seconds.
3. A menu will appear. NOTE.. be careful when using the
remote to move the cursor as you can inadvertently change
other codes.
4. Using the cursor buttons on the remote move left or right
( not up or down ) to move the cursor to OP 6.
5.Move the cursor to position aa and change the code using
the up and down cursor keys so that the code is changed to
8e.
6. Press the OK/Enter key on the remote control
7. Press the Menu/List key on the remote control
8 This should result in the region code being edited and the
player should switch off.

As with all editing of the software it is worth making a
note of all existing codes
before making any changes in case
you make a mistake along the way.

Cursor jumping around while typing text


You wouldn't have some live insect in your keyboard have you? I've seen Microwaves do strange stuff when infested with some tiny insects BUT I doubt it's the case with your machine. I am trying to recall a Keyboard key that I sometimes accidentally press when trying to create a document using Word, etc which does the same or similar to what you've described. It pees me of as I don't know which button I hit, it is one of the main reasons I avoid Word, Outlook, etc. Please let us know if solved, cheers.

Problem with section numbers not being linked in a word document that I'm updating using word 2007. The original document was created with an earlier version of Microsoft word.


When you create or open and edit a (.docx) document in Microsoft Word 2007, the Save As option gives you the opportunity to save it as a the (.doc) document in the formats of older versions of Word.

If it is not already too late, try to recover (using the AutoRecovery function built-into Microsoft Word 2007) , the earliest and most error-free version of the document in question you can recover and then use Save As, rather than Save to make an experimental copy of the document in an older Microsoft Word format.

Another option to consider is to download and install the free Office Suite Application Open Office, which can open, edit and manage many Microsoft Office documents and then copy and paste the most error-free version of the document in question into the appropriate Open Office Program and then see what sort of job the Open Office Word Processor makes of handling the tricky formatting.

For the future, as a general rule, whenever editing any document that contains complex formatting, always remember to start by copying and pasting the text of the original document into a new blank document (remembering to close the original document so you don't accidentally toggle between the two). Then your experiments could be conducted on a copy of the document, rather than the original, enabling you to repeat the method and continue creating experimental copies freely, until you have developed a workable strategy for dealing with the formatting issues.

Furthermore, remember to always use the Save As function, giving the experimental documents distinct and varying names (test.doc1, test.doc2, test.doc3 etc.) so you can keep track of your progress in mastering the formatting issues, then each document you save, is a copy, leaving the original document unchanged and available as a template for further experimentation, if necessary.

How to change the pitch?


Here ya go...

Margins and Tabs
Margins and tabs for both Type Mode and Mem Mode are set in Type
Mode, but can be changed in Mem Mode when text is recalled for
editing. Margins and tabs are set using the typing scale which appears
on the display in Type Mode. A blinking cursor indicates the typing
position. The letter “L” indicates your left margin setting. The letter “R”
indicates your right margin setting.
NOTE: In Mem Mode, the margins and tabs used when the text
is created will be saved with the text and recalled with it,
even if they have been changed.
Margins
In Type Mode, to signal that you are near the right margin, the
typewriter will beep 5 spaces before the margin. In Mem Mode, the text
will wrap automatically when you print.
Margins are preset depending on the pitch setting, which is the number
of characters per inch. They are:
10 Pitch 12 Pitch 15 Pitch
(Pica) (Elite) (Micro)
Left Margin 12 14 18
Right Margin 72 86 108
New margin settings remain until changed again.
1. Move the Mode Selector to Type. A typing scale appears on
the display.
2. Move the cursor using the Spacebar or Back Space to the desired left
margin setting on the scale.
3. Press Margin.
4. Move the cursor using the Spacebar to the desired right margin
setting on the typing scale.
5. Press Code + Margin. A beep confirms each new margin setting.
6. You can change to Mem Mode, if desired.

Take care,

I am attempting to download my adobe professional 6.0 on my new computer and it keeps telling me some files could not be created. I have Microsoft Vista operating software versus Microsoft XP on the last...


According to Microsoft's website Adobe 6.0 is not compatible with Vista. They suggest upgrading to Adobe 9, which they have listed as starting at $159, according to Adobe. I have a program I have used for that last few years from a company called Foxit software. It handles all my adobe needs from editing and creating documents to reading them. The software is free and I suggest you give it a try. The response time to open a document is at least 50% quicker than adobe, and it is not constantly need of updates every time you open it.

Here is the link from Microsoft

This is the link to Foxit.
