Irregular Text Shapes
I have a problem doing something that seems like it should be simple, but
it's got me stumped.
I'm formatting a book in Publisher 2007. I've used PageMaker in the past,
but my version is now too old (PM65) and since Publisher came with my Office
suite I thought I'd give it a try rather than spending $$$ for the Adobe
upgrade. I was pleasantly surprised how easy Publisher was to learn.
I'm currently laying out the cover and the liner notes on the back go into
an irregularly shaped area in the artwork. I've just spent over two hours
trying to figure a way to modif...how do I type text in text box in Publisher
I am trying to create a banner in Microsoft Publisher. I have created a tex
block but when I try to type text in the block it won't let me. When I start
typing nothing shows up in text block
Have you selected the text box? And if so, do you see a flashing cursor in
the text box?

Only way I know, is to move your cursor to between the row number of therow
you want to adjust and the next row. The cursor changes shape into an
up/down arrow. Click and drag till you see all. Double clicking will also

and EM_SETTEXTEX. That works. Now I want to toggle the pinning of the

the last line wasn't previously visible. How I do that?

With a list of topics by the month (e.g. July 2004 Daily Numbers), how can

Perhaps one way ..
Assuming you have in col A, A1 down
July 2004 Daily Numbers
July 2004 Weekly Numbers
August 2004 Daily Numbers
August 2004 Weekly Numbers
September 2004 Daily Numbers
September 2004 Weekly Numbers
Put in B1:
=MID(TRIM(A1),SEARCH(" ",TRIM(A1),SEARCH(" ",TRIM(A1))+1)+1,99)
Col B will extract the text-string after the "Month Year" string
Use col B as the key to sort both cols A and B

Hopefully I will explain my question clearly. ;)
If one has created a list style in MS Word 2008, how does one include
"in that list" some paragraphs that are in one's Body Text style but are
based on the indent rules of the list style?
In other words, I start a list with list paragraph number 1. but after
the first sentence I'd like to include several paragraphs with a style
consistent with the list paragraph but not a new list number.
Hope that is clear.
Thanks for any tips.

I have what would seem to be a very small problem, but I am unable to answer
it myself. I have a report that I am trying to create and each record can
have one of three categories. If there are multiple records for, let's say,
Group1, then I want a text box to span both records and center the text
within the report. This would be the equivalent of a rowspan in html.
I have no idea where to start. Am I missing something really simple?

What version Publisher? If you are using 2003-07 you could do this manually if
you are using the catalogue merge. After the merge, in step five, create a new
publication. Arrange the entries the way you are describing.

I have a column of text in rows and would like to move it to columns.
I cannot locate how. I know it must be possible
Select the rows of text in your column that you want to move to columns,
then click Edit/Copy from Excel's menu bar, then click into the first cell
you want to put the data transposed data into (this cannot be one of the
select cells by the way), then click Edit/PasteSpecial from Excel's menu
bar, click the box at the bottom labeled Transpose and click OK.
