Insertion point in selected text
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
I had to reinstall Office 2008 and since then, Word is behaving differently when I try to click inside a portion of text that is selected. Instead of dismissing the selection and giving me an insertion point, the selection background briefly blinks and stays there, and a smart tag appears. I have to click outside the selected text and then put the insertion point where I want it.� <br><br>What is even more intriguing is if I happen to be tracking the changes, I can see that Word does something when I...Problem inserting in-line images
I am using Word 2003. Generally when I want to insert an image in a document

be able to easily add text before and after the picture.
Hence my default settting (under Options...Edit) is 'Insert/paste

Is there some way to insert a contacts information into an email body? So if
I want to give someones contact info to a client or friend while composing I
can do that quickly. It seems as if I used to be able to do this in Outlook
express. Does outlook do this too?
I don't know of an easy and quick method, but a wordaround is to open the
contact and use the File->Save As to save the data, then open it in an
editor, copy, and paste into your e-mail.
You could use the "Insert -> Item" menu and pick the contact but then it

Any help on this would be appreciated.

thanks for ur help
Insert the page number. When your cursor is in the Header (or Footer),
a toolbar (or ribbon tab, if you're in Word2007) appears with the
"Format Page Number" button. In that button you'll find a place to
tell it which page number to start with.

[for Excel 2007]
I have a worksheet with one data table. The cells in the data row that have
formulas are locked - to avoid changing the formula and to remove them from
the tab order. All other cells in the worksheet are unlocked.
When I protect the worksheet, and make sure to check the options that allow
me to insert rows, I am still not allowed to insert new data table rows. For
example, pressing TAB at the end of one data row will not automatically
create a new row and shift the focus to the first cell in the new row.

The merge will follow your repeating areas based on how you lay them out.

I have been experiencing problems when the dialog box opens upon requesting
an insert file. The file drop down hangs up and the dialog box title shows a
message that states "Insert File Not Responding". I have to wait and request
the drop down file selection again in order to see the folders and files
available for selection. I ran the repair on the PST file as well as a detect
and repair on the reinstall of Outlook. I am wondering why this has started
to happen suddenly. There has not been anything new or different that has
been introduced to this PC. Thank you.

First, this is not an issue with assigning a caption from a picture and the
caption isn't in a text box. In fact, I've scoured the internet and found no
known issues like what I'm about to describe.
My document has 16 figures and 12 tables. I created a list of figures and a
list of tables and found that both go missing randomly when any changes are
made trying to get them to reappear. E.g., if I'm missing only fig 13, and I
test a change, several figures then go missing. Or if I have all figures and
begin to insert tables, the list of figures looses ...pivot tables

Every time I move data from Access into Excel each cell magically gains a

I need to run on the sheet. I really want to delete all of them.
Try a different Number format in Format-Cells, Number tab. Excel may be

Everytime someone mouses over a comment, I would like the picture of the

Even better, I would like to put a formula in the comment to do a lookup in
a table and match with the cell and then show the picture.
I think creating a hyperlink for every cell will be too time consuming.
Or does anyone have any other ideas?
AFAIK it is not possible to include formulas or pictures in this

I have created a 125 KB file in Photoshop, (purple object
on a transparent background) and exported it as and .eps
I then tell my Publisher 2000 document to insert that

indeed there and it is purple.
But every time I print it the image is "gone". I go

still can't figure out what I need to do.
I've also downloaded the most recent driver for my Cannon
