Applications :: Using Spanish Microsoft Word Auto-correct?

May 6, 2009

For some reason my auto-correct has a dictionary based in spanish. Example: when editing my resume I have put down the word Administrative , but it says it is wrong and gives suggestions such as Administrativa or Administrativo.

I have changed the spell check options to only have US english as the default setting and this suddenly pops up. I never put Spanish in my international language settings on the mac, nor have I had someone who speaks spanish use the computer.

MacBook Pro :: Auto-recovery Microsoft Word 2008 - No Auto-recovery Files?

Apr 4, 2012

I am trying to recovery a file created in Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac. The file was lost after a power outage. In an attempt to recover the file, my first thought was to check for the file in the Microsoft AutoRecovery 2008 folder within my hardrive. However, the folder only contains a total of four files! Why? If my Microsoft Word is set up to auto save a document every 10 minutes...then how is it possible the folder could only contain 4 files? I am at a loss of how else to recover this file. I am currently attempting to do so with a free trial of Data Recovery Software to see if the file I lost even still exists, with no success so far. 

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

Apr 29, 2009

I have just purchased a Mac book pro and installed Microsoft for Mac and tried changing the language setting for the spell checker to Spanish.

I have selected the dictionary as Spanish and check add, but still my documents do not spell check in Spanish.

I used to have no problem on my PC laptop with the same function in Microsoft Word.

Applications :: Way To Auto Replace First Word Of E-mail In A Series Of 100 E-mails?

Oct 29, 2010

Sending out the same e-mail message to 100 different people, but I want to customize the e-mail to their first name. Is there any program that you can upload a text list or Excel list to and it will do this automatically and create the e-mails in your drafts folder? Don't want to use a online sending service because they put crap at the bottom of the e-mail and recipients know it's automated.Want the people to think it's not something automated.Also, I know there's a way to schedule delivery of a message for a future date in Apple Mail via Apple Script, but you seem to have to schedule one by one. Any watch to do a batch scheduling?

Applications :: Spellcheck In Microsoft Word 2008

Apr 16, 2008

When I open up a new word doc (doc 1) and start typing randomly with loads of spelling errors the little red line does not appear under the mis-spelled word. When I Manually select spell check it tells me that there are no mistakes even though there blatantly are. If I open up a new blank doc (doc 2) and begin typing away again the same mis-spelled words, the red lines appears as it normally should. This is where it gets weird.......In doc 2 if I go into preferences>spelling and grammar, The boxes, "check spelling as you type" and "always suggest corrections" are ticked under both the spelling and grammr sections. If I then go into the same preferences for doc 1 the same boxes are ticked under the spelling and grammar sections however the grammar section is greyed out so I can't change the settings.

I am currently typing my thesis so having a wacky spell check is driving me insane. What I have been doing is opening a new doc then opening another new doc (doc 2) and typing in that however I have also noticed that the spell check doesn't always seem to work.

Applications :: Microsoft Word 08 Formatting Problem?

Apr 27, 2009

I've been having a problem with word 08 where every time I try to format a word as bold, the entire document is formatted as bold. When I undo, the document goes back to what it originally was, but the desired text is bold. It seems almost like word formats the desired selection and then does some sort of autoformatting that takes over the whole document, which is why I am able to undo it. Normally it's only a slight inconvenience, but now that I am writing my thesis, formatting is key, and I can't afford to have random formatting changes.

Applications :: Migrating Back And Forth With Microsoft Word?

Dec 11, 2009

My wife is still using Microsoft Word 2000 (and running under Windows 2000) on a quite old machine; a white box we had built by a small custom builder. She's happy with it and it gets her work done. The system still runs fine and almost never crashes.I'm trying to find a way for her to migrate to OSx. I have an iBook G4/133 with 1.25 mb ram. I'm looking into Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac. I know that the forums have said there are lots of issues with Word on the mac, but I'm trying to get a sense of how bad the issues really are. The documents she works with are very simply formatted, no table of contents, no pictures, no graphs.

Applications :: Problem Using 'Word' On Microsoft Office X?

Dec 31, 2009

I've used Word on Microsoft Office X for the first time today and I am having a problem with the font suddenly appearing bigger after typing space during a sentence. Upon opening the Font Options Box the size shows unchanged.

This is very annoying and confusing!

I don't know if it makes a difference, the fact I was typing my address at the top of a letter when this was happening, although I was not using a letter template.

Applications :: Microsoft Word 08 And Endnote X3 Won't Communicate

Mar 19, 2010

I am using Microsoft Word 08 to write my essay, and the trial version of Endnote (10 days remaining) to keep my references, thinking if I like how it works for this essay I would buy the software.

So now I have the reference I need in Endnote, and my essay in Word, and I can't get them to communicate to insert the reference and format the bibliography. I looked up Endnote's help file, and it says there should be an Endnote option in the Tools menu of Word, but there isn't. There is nothing in Word's help menu about Endnote. And in Endnote, all the tools to do with Word are greyed out.

Applications :: Microsoft Word 2008 Mac Not Displaying Properly

Apr 28, 2009

I used a standard resume template in Word 2008 Mac that is not displaying properly in Windows. Here is a brief description: On my Mac: The document is perfectly formatted and displayed on 2 pages. On my PC: With ".doc" format, my name doesn't appear. In its place, I have yellow text that reads "address blocked". Additionally, the text spills onto a third page, even though the font, font size, spacing, etc. is all the same.

I then tried saving the document in ".rtf" format, and while my name did appear, the text still spills onto a third page. I cannot fit all the text (in a Windows environment) without cutting out important content. I'm so thoroughly pissed off with this. There should be no compatibility issues in this case because I'm using a STANDARD resume template that came with Word '08. When I saved the document, I made sure to select the "windows friendly" option.

Applications :: How To Open Files By Default In Microsoft Word 2008

Sep 16, 2009

By default, I save all my word documents in rich text format (.rtf). After I installed Snow Leopard, these files now open by default with Text Edit.

Since I want these files to open by default in Microsoft Word 2008, I right clicked on the file, chose "other", selected "Word 2008", and then checked "always open with". However, the files still open by default in Text Edit...

Applications :: Can't Highlight Text In Google Chrome AND Microsoft Word

Jul 26, 2010

A couple of months ago, my favorite web browser was Firefox, but as soon as I tested Google Chrome, I changed my choice. I lived happily with it until...

One day, out of nowhere (maybe since Chrome 5.0 update?), I was not able anymore to highlight text. What I mean is that I can highlight the first line or the first three letters (depending on how fast I move on my trackpad). It seems like there is a timer. I have like 500 ms to highlight text and then it stops.

I thought it was Chrome because it seems I am not the only one :

But yesterday, I realised that the bug extended to Microsoft Word!

I don't know what to do anymore... is it a core problem?

I am on a Macbook pro 15" unibody.

Applications :: Microsoft Word 2008 Saves Corrupt Files

Aug 13, 2010

I am having a very troubling issue on two different computers. Both run the latest Snow Leopard and Microsoft Word 2008. The problem is the following: Every single time I save a .doc file I end up with a corrupt doc: I can open it only with the computer that created it, and only with Word. No other software (even QL on the same computer) can open it. I have to re-open the doc with Word, SAVE AS, do a compatibility check, ignore all the issues or fix them, then save it with a different name. Then it works.
The only difference between the two computers is that with Word 2008 at times I cannot even save it with the workaround I explained above: I have to save as DOCX with compatibility check in order for it to work.
This is getting really annoying, as every time I have to send a .doc for work reasons (several times a day), I end up having to triple check it and save it.

OS X :: Using Microsoft Word For Macs - How To Delete A Text Box In A Word Document

Aug 24, 2009

I have a Mac OS X version 10.5.7 i am working on Word 2008 for Mac, version 12.0.1 (080305).

My problem, i created one text box in a document, somehow 2 more appeared. I made the mistake of thinking that to delete the extra text boxes, i simply highlight them and delete them. Silly stupid me, nothing that simple exists and i have wasted an hour trying to figure it out. The help button does squat, barely gives you any info on a text box much less trying to delete it. Does anyone know how to delete a text box in a word document?
