When you restart a Microsoft Office program after a power failure or similar problem, the program automatically opens any recovered files.
If for some reason the recovery file didn't open, you can open it yourself.
1. On the Standard toolbar, click Open .
2. On the Show pop-up menu, click All Documents.
3. Locate the folder that contains your recovery files.
Each recovery file is named "AutoRecover save of file name."
4. Open the recovery file.
5. Click Save .
6. In the Save As box, enter the name of the existing document.
7. When you see a message asking whether you want to replace the existing document, click Yes.
Any recovery files that haven't been saved are deleted when you quit WorTips
• If you can't open the recovery file, you can try to recover the text from the damaged file.
• To find out or change where your recovery files are stored, click Preferences on the Word menu, and then click File Locations.
Otherwise apply Word Repair Toolbox
Tool has a lot of different tricks, know more at:- http://www.word.repairtoolbox.com/
There might be an application in your computer called OSPPREARM.EXE or OSPPREARM.COM In Windows 7, this is located in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform\OSPPREARM.EXE" Running this extends your Office trial by a month. You can run it 6 times before it stops working (apparently, I have not used it 6 times yet).
If you ever bought a copy of Office 2007, or if it came preloaded on your computer, you may be able to get a replacement key by following the instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2548260.
If you have never bought Office, then you can't get a key. With the exception of the time-limited trial versions (which you can't get for Office 2007 any more), there are no free desktop versions of Office - though the Office Apps are free in iTunes for iOS devices right now.
There are free productivity suites, such as LibreOffice, which can read and edit most Microsoft Office files.
You made a backup? If yes, then:
Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open.
Locate the folder in which you last saved the missing file.
In the Files of type list, click All Files. The backup file usually has the name "Backup of" followed by the name of the missing file.
Click the backup file, and then click Open.

If this way didn't work, try to find the answer here: http://www.filerepairforum.com/forum/microsoft/microsoft-aa/word/392-how-to-repair-word-after-the-file-is-corrupted-and-cannot-be-opened
This is the font control size dropdown. This is from office 2013 but its the same in 2007. Click the dropdown and it will display the available font sizes. However if you are using a truetype font (vector) font you can type any point size you like in this box and it will render it.
I found this answer at http://word.tips.net/T007248_Changing_the_Language_of_Comment_Boxes.html. I think it will answer your question, regardless of your Word version. (Word has been using Styles for interesting modifications like this since 6.0.)
Changing the Language of Comment Boxes
by Allen Wyatt (last updated February 15, 2014)
Mary Anne edits academic texts. She is Canadian, as are most of her clients. She therefore sets all documents in Canadian English. However, she discovered that in Track Changes comment boxes are still in U.S. English. Mary Anne wonders how she can change the comment boxes to Canadian English.
The solution to this question is rooted in the way in which Word uses styles. All the text that Word creates is formatted through the use of styles. The text in comment boxes is no exception. You can modify the appropriate styles related to comments by following these general steps:
1.Display either the Styles dialog box or the Styles and Formatting pane, depending on your version of Word. (How you do this has been covered many times in other issues of WordTips.) [ED: Try using help on your Word to find out how to display the Styles and Formatting Pane. Search for "how to display styles pane".]
2.Use the controls in the dialog box or the pane to display all the styles used by Word.
3.Use the controls to modify the three styles used for comments: Comment Text, Comment Reference, and Comment Subject. You can set the language used for each of these.
4.Close the Styles dialog box or the Styles and Formatting pane. That's it. Change the styles, and Word changes how it treats the text formatted with those styles. You'll particularly want to pay attention to the Comment Text style; it is this style that is used for the text shown within comment boxes.
