Macintosh Word X Indentation Issue

I am using Microsoft Office Mac X purchased December 24, 2003.

Problem: I have a 250 page document, suddently the first line of each =
page=20
is indenting and I am having to go to the individual pages to drop the=20
opening line down to eliminate the indent.

The only explanation I can think of -- I had originally number the =
pages,=20
then using the header/footer facility in View Mode, I deleted the page=20
numbers, creating this formatting inconsistency, which is extremely=20
disabling.   I tried copying the full document onto another blank =
document=20
but the formatting carried over.

Please help me. Thank you so very much.
Robert

Do you see the same behavior when you print a couple of pages?  I think this
is a glitch, rather than that your formatting actually changed.  The header
should not carry over onto the next page, though you could try going back
into View | Headers/Footers and deleting any empty lines (aka extraneous
paragraph marks). Also try switching into Normal View and back to force Word
to redraw the screen.

OR Maybe the document is corrupt?

The first way to check for a corrupt document is to
copy the entire thing, *excluding* the last paragraph mark, into a new
document. That last paragraph mark holds a lot of information which can get
corrupted, and copying the text into a document with a fresh one keeps your
formatting, but can fix some glitches.

A paragraph mark is a gray �.  Click on � on the standard toolbar to show
nonprinting characters, including paragraph marks.

Modify scale in X axis on a scatter plot from Pivot data
I need to increase the gap between my labels on the X axis in a scatter plot. They are too close and I can not read the labels unless i make them 4pt and zoom in to 200%. There are about 200 points on the X axis at .2 increments. I would like to be able to have labels for whole numbers only. I can not use a fixed set of values by generating a dummy X-axis since the range changes as I apply the different filters. Any ideas? thanks!

Exchange 5.5 sp4 - MAPI clients can not connect

The only remedy for our 100 + MAPI clients (only), is to restart the Exchange services, then, they can log back in... same issue will re-occur a day or two later.

Comments from Word 2002 to 2007
We have a large number of templates written in Word 2002, most of which have comment balloons associated with them. We are in the process of converting these templates to Word 2007. Would it be fair of me to assume we could just copy the text of these comments to the new comments in our converted templates? Would there be any corruption? Or do we need to type out the comments letter by letter to avoid any corruption issues. There are differing opinions in our department on how to proceed. Hoping for some clarification from the helpful folks here. Thanks Well, Word 2007 a...

Word as email editor #6
I'm using Outlook 98 and Word 2000. I want to use Word as my e-mail editor in Outlook 98. When I go to Mail Format to turn on Word as my e-mail editor, it doesn't allow me to choose Word AND also choose HTML as my message format. One without the other basically is useless, i.e. why bother to use Word as the e-mail editor if I can't send elements other than text. ALSO, when I try to send an e- mail directly from Word, under File, New there is no "General" tab which means I can't choose "e-mail message." It's as if a chunk of something is mis...

BUG?: Excel scatter chart: will not plot x-values
I am trying to make a simple scatter plot. There are two columns of data. Excel will not plot values on the x- axis, only categories. I have entered the ranges for x and y values correctly, and the chart wizard shows it; yet, the chart comes out with the x-axis showing only the points numbered in the order they are entered in the spreadsheet. Oddly enough, if only one y-value is included, it plots properly; the x-axis correctly shows the range of x-values entered, and the single data point shows up at its proper xy location. as soon as I expand the y-range to more points, the x-axis r...

trouble with indents
for reasons I don't know, Word 2007 is now indenting to half the page. I'm used to using bullets and create hanging lists using the indent key. The tab key still indents, but jumps the indent half way across the page. I am clueless on how to reset indents.

Scaling the x-axis on a line chart
I am having trouble scaling the x-axis so that the intervals are equal. The source data is not in equal intervals, it goes 0.0,0.2,0.4,0.45,0.5,0.6,0.7,0.8,0.9 (I think). What can I do to make the interval on the graph 0.2? I'm using XP. Don't make a line chart. Make an XY chart, using the markers and lines option. Then you can double click the X axis and set any appropriate tick spacing. An XY chart treats X and Y as continuously varying numerical values. A line chart treats Y that way, but treats X as non-numerical text labels. - Jon ------- Jon Peltier, Microsoft Excel M...

Do not ever call OnDraw (or OnPaint). Their operation depends on information (clipping region) that is known only to the operating system. Instead, you can call Invalidate().
