Problems with MS Word windows

Howcome everytime I create a new document in Word 98 they are half 
screen and I always have to MANUALLY adjust them to be full screen?  Is 
there a way to fix this glitch?  Because excel 98 always opens up full 
screen, as well as Word for Windows.


Thanks,


John

John:

The magnification for each document is saved when you close it.  Set the
size you want, then save and close the document.

The magnification for "New" documents comes from your Normal template.

To set it, close all other documents and open Normal template.  Set the
magnification you want, then save and close the template and quit Word.
When you quit, your default zoom setting will be saved.

Cheers

It does not work.  This is what I do.  

1.  Open Normal under the MS office 98 Templates folder
2.  Expand the window and change the font size from 12-13 pt
3.  Save
4.  Quit Word 98
5.  Relaunch it under Classic and neither the font size nor the window 
size have changed

Try adding a step 2a. Space backspace so that Normal is "dirty" and Word
knows there is a change to be saved.  It may not be recognizing dialog
changes as changes.

Just did and it still does not work.  Perhaps this is a Word 98 bug or 
limitation.

No, it's not a Word 98 limitation.

1)  Close Word and drag your Normal template to the desktop.

2)  Open Word and close it again (this forces it to write a new Normal
template).

3)  Now open Word, DISMISS the default document and open ONLY the Normal
template, using File>Open.

4)  Add and remove a space (so Word knows to save the template)

5)  THEN set your size.

6)  NOW save Normal template

7)  IMMEDIATELY quit Word.

You need to do all the steps in sequence exactly this way, because I think
you may have a corrupted Normal template that is working perfectly, it just
cannot be written to.

It's a weird state that only a template can get into.  Everything works, but
changes don't save to file.

That's because while Word is running, the settings from Normal are all held
in memory.  When you make the change, Word updates the copy in memory.  It
doesn't necessarily save the Normal template until you quit Word, at that
stage discovers it can't write to the part of Normal that it needs to update
to make the change, and thus abandons your change.  It's rare, difficult to
find and damned frustrating when it happens :-)

Hope this helps

Ability to merge windows into tabs and move a tab into a new windo

Either that or some sort of 2 page view where you can see two tabs side by side and can navigate each separately. Would like to se...

Form/ subform link problems
My parent form holds information about a part and my subform holds ordering information for that part. Up to now I have linked the child to the parent via PartID : RecordID and Component Name : Component name. This is great as it shows the component name on the subform after it has been found on the parent form. The only problem with this is if the user changes the component name it does not keep the order information for the same item with the old name. I want to link purely on the partID : RecordID so that whatever else is changed the order information history still shows. When I do t...
