Can't collapse text in word 2016

Q: Can't collapse text in word 2016

Hi all

I have copied some text from a webpage into a new Word 2016 document.
The webpage had collapsed dot points, but when the text was pasted into the new Word doc, all the dot points were expanded - the 'Collapse by default' box is greyed out. How would I collapse this text so that it reflects the webpage?

Thanks.

(Windows 10 laptop) This is simple, yet hard to describe. I am revising a 285-page novel. I'll be editing a paragraph, and all of a sudden the backspace won't delete text...especially when I want to move the text up to the line above it. Standard: hit backspace, done. But often backspace will not work; nothing happens. Only by deleting the empty space above or Ctl+X the text and physically moving it, can I accomplish the edit. WHY does Word not allow me to backspace sometimes? It must be something in the formatting....in a setting, right? Or is it one of the paragraph characteristics/settings? I've tried to find an answer online to no avail.

Hi,

wondering firstly if it can be done but also if it can then how it is done. I know and have seen it working in Excel via Group and Outline Data; but does anyone know if it can be done in Microsoft Word?

Or as an alternative having a drop down box with options being numbers. So that if someone chooses 3 then 3 tables will appear for them to enter their information, or if they select 10 they they will have 10 tables to enter the information.

Thanks,

Greetings! I've searched everywhere for the answer to this issue. It must be common, but I can't find it anywhere. I'm using MS Word 2007, but the problem was the same in 2003. I sometimes get a text box that is behind regular text. I need to move it. One normally just selects a text box and drags, or cut and paste, it where one wants. However, when it is behind text, it can't be selected. I have found no way to select normal text and "send it behind."

How do I get to this text box that is behind my regular text? I've been told to "move the regular text out of the way, then you will be able to get to your text box." But the text box moves with text!

Thanks,

Hello,
I have a problem with my Word. I use Microsoft Word 2016 to write, and I'm more comfortable using this than Word 2007. However, when I save a file using Word 2016, I open it later using File Explorer and it opens in 2007. I cannot figure out why this happens. I even go to my document, select "Open With...", click on "Word 2016", and enter. This still opens as Word 2007. I've tried researching, but no one else seems to have this problem.
Can anyone tell me what to do? Maybe I'm overlooking something obvious since I'm not really a techie. If anybody can help, please send detailed instructions!

I have created a document in MS Word 2010 that has a textbox with a background color. When I print the document to my printer (have tried multiple printers) or print to PDF, the textbox prints but the text itself does not print. (see attached image)

Upon further investigation of the PDF, I found that the text is actually layered below the textbox. For some reason, Word is printing the textbox on top of the text itself.

When I take the textbox, copy it to a new document, and try to print, it prints correctly.

I have also checked my printing preferences and I believe all the settings are correct.

Does anybody know how to fix this?

How do I find and remove hidden data and personal information in my Office documents?

You can use the Document Inspector to find and remove hidden data and personal information in Office documents that were created in Office Word 2007, Office Excel 2007, Office PowerPoint 2007, and earlier versions of these Office programs.

Hello:
I recently upgraded to Office 2016, and whenever I use Word 2016, it freezes up. It is set to Compatibility Mode, like all my previous versions of Word (except the first one!), because many of my colleagues in small nonprofit organizations have older versions. I have an ongoing malware program and also did a complete scan and found nothing, so it's not a virus. I've also rechecked the settings, but I can't see anything amiss.

The freeze comes like this: When I open an older text (from a colleague so it is in an earlier version of Word), it opens fine. But the first time I try to scroll or page down, it freezes. Also, when I try to save an older text, it freezes. And when I reopen Word and click on the recovered text in the right-hand column, it freezes immediately. I seem to be able to create new texts, and even save them.

Any ideas about how I can fix this? This is my workhorse program so I really need it. Thanks.

I know the Include Field will include part of the text from an Include File if it is in a bookmark. The format is {IncludeText "File Path" Bookmark}. I have 2 files: Source and Target.

Source is a form template. I included a Text Form Field and gave it the bookmark AA. I also included other text in a "normal" bookmark, BB.

In Target I have 2 fields: {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" AA} and {IncludeText "C:\\Source.dot" BB}. The text from BB shows up, but the one for AA is blank.

If I go into Source and look under Bookmarks, both AA and BB are there.

BTW, I have tried it with the Source form both "Protected" and "Unprotected" and it didn't make any difference.

Any idea why this is happening, and more importantly, any idea on how to make this work? If not, it seems like a real bug in Word 2003 as they are both definitely considered to be bookmarks.

A:Forced Spaces on Word 2016

When you justify paragraphs, MS Word will equalize the spacing between words that are on the same line.  If you think about, this is the only way your paragraphs can end up being aligned to both the left and right margins.  Obviously, there are times when this can result in large unsightly spaces.  The only way to avoid these unsightly spaces is to hyphenate some words.  I don't use MS Office, but there should be a setting somewhere that will apply hyphenation for you automatically.  You can check to see if this setting is on.  Also, it's possible that "hyphenation" dictionaries may be available for you to install to help with this.

With the new Microsoft Word 2016 if you insert an equation through the Equation button within the Insert menu you get this new-looking editor.


Equations created in such a way can be viewed in inline, professional or linear mode and offer advanced options.

But if you use a keyboard shortcut (Alt+= or any user defined one) instead you end up getting this old-fashioned editor:


And if you edit equations from documents made by other people sometimes they are opened with the new editor, sometimes with the old one.

Can anyone explain the difference between them and how to force Word to always use the new one, please?, I would like to get it with a keyboard shortcut.
And also how to convert an equation made with the old editor onto the new format?

Hi:
I just had a very strange result when converting a Word 2016 docx, with headings and Table of Contents, to pdf. I've got Adobe Acrobat Pro and attempted to both "print to pdf" and Save As pdf. Each time I got a popup to update the Contents index. Even if I canceled, the pages would reorder such that one of the images and captions of page 16 would show up on page three. I tried deleting and reinstalling the index; saving as a doc file then attempting pdf; uploading to a free pdf converter. Nothing worked. Eventually I saved as RTF, then converted to PDF. Yay. That worked. When I then saved the rtf as docx, it again successfully converted to pdf. Took me about an hour to troubleshoot.

Any ideas out there? Seems like there must have been some gremlin in the TOC code that got stripped out converting to RTF. Weird. Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcome.

So....285-page document. It's a novel, so scene changes as well as 1st paragraph of new chapters are NOT indented. I have an issue where sometimes I want to break a paragraph into two and start a new paragraph. Usually it works, but occasionally it just drops the text down a line w/o the paragraph indent. Sure I can hit tab, but the problem is that I've been warned editors HATE having a bunch of tabs in the doc....I did a "replace all" and got rid of all tabs. Fine, but it also meant I had to go back and hand-fix dozens of scene changes to get them right again. So how do I fix the formatting so I automatically get a paragraph indent, w/o hitting tab, or risking having the existing indents/scene changes go wacky again? Thanks...hope I explained it well....not sure....

This is really recent, after I paid this year's renewal.....when I try to "Save As" on any Word doc, it hangs up forever, until I close out using Task Manager (cont-alt-delete.) I have Windows 7 Home Pro on my desktop. This does not happen on the same program on my laptop (Windows 10.) I looked into the issue online, but it seemed that the options are very time-consuming, and the reviews on effectiveness were mixed at best.

Any ideas? I guess I should at least start with uninstall/reinstall? (That's my inclination; it's just that I read other people saying they did that and it accomplished nothing.)

Thanks!

I am in the process of upgrading from Win XP & Office 2007 to Win 10 & Office 2016. I have everything installed and it seems to be running. I copied all of My Documents over using a thumb drive. Now I need to copy several folders of user templates.
 
On Win XP, they are in:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\...
Can I just copy them over like I did with My Documents? And if so, where to?
 
 

A:Where does Word 2016 want user templates stored?

%appdata%\Microsoft\Templates. The %appdata% usually translates to C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming. The AppData folder is usually hidden, so you'll need to click on the View tab in File Explorer and check the "Hidden Items" box.

I was rather upset to see that Microsoft, in its wisdom, has removed the Passive Grammar checker in word 2016. Basically I use it in writing, as do many others, so why was it removed. It seems the last version is in 2013,so that means I have to go back 3
years to be able  to use this.
It is bizarre since word is supposed to have a grammar and spell checker!!!

Problem: Word won't replace styles (especially in footnotes).

Description: A very large number of footnotes are in the wrong style (or styles). I want to change them all to, say, style FN1.
While SelectAll, specify style FN1 by clicking the ribbon, would only be a partial solution, it doesn't work, although by not erroring it implies it has.
SearchAndReplace Null text, format style 'Bad1' with Null text, format style FN1 says it has done an arbitrary number of replacements, but doesn't.
SearchAndReplace *, format style 'Bad1' with ^& , format style FN1, UseWildcards goes away for a week and says it has done (in one case) 13,849 replacements, but it hasn't.

Solution wanted: Replace all text in footnotes [with or without bad style] with a new style.

Of interest: Simple search for NullText, Style xxx doesn't find anything, even if xxx is, eg, simply italics. Search for Font italic does.

I Suspect: I'm being snared by MS bizarre 'style v paragraph' stuff.

This is not: How to modify a style - Google ad nauseam.

I will really appreciate a solution (or even an explanation of why I have no chance), otherwise I look like having a month of selecting indivual footnotes manually.

System: Desktop, W10, Word 2016 (and earlier).

Thanks

I imported a group of cells from Excel 2016 into a Word document in Word 2016. Under the Developer tab in Word, I added a Text Form Field under the Legacy Tools toolbox. I locked the rest of the form and I can see that I can then only type in the Text Form Field box I created. That works correctly.

When I hold down a key and fill the Text Form Field box, my right margin stays but my left margin and bottom of the text box move so that the words wrap (as I'd like) but the data in the locked area to the left of the field get distorted as the Text Form Field fills with data.

I don't know how to stop this but I know that it can be stopped because this is the second form I have created in such a manner and the first form behaves correctly. On the first form, if I hold down a key and fill the box, the words wrap but the left and right margins stay and the bottom of the text box only gets bigger (not the left side as is happening on my second form as I described above).

I have hovered over the left and right margins and when I get the double line to move them in and out, I have moved both and then one or the other at a time in and out and it doesn't fix the issue.

I also tried using the first form (which works correctly), deleting the existing data in it and importing the new Excel cells into it. The same issue happens. I don't know what I did on the first form to lock the left and right so data only expands downward.

Any suggestions?

So I know this should be very easy. I have a 285-page novel manuscript I'm formatting for submission. I have page numbers that start on the 3rd actual page, which is where Chapter 1 begins. I have a header but it only appears on those first two pages; it stops before Chapter 1. How do I have the header appear on every page of the doc? I googled it but it's confusing....it took awhile to get the page numbering right, because I wanted it to start where it does....I'm afraid if I mess with the header as it is, I'm in for more frustration. A simple step-by-step would be appreciated. Thanks!

Whenever I click on the file tab in Word or Powerpoint 2016 (doesn't happen for Excel) the programme crashes. The tech support at Microsoft are unable to resolve so I'm wondering if it is a HP conflict with Office or Windows 10. Has anyone else experienced this and found out how to resolve the problem?
