OS X Mavericks :: How To Convert Word 2004 Files For Use With Upgrade (10.6.8)

Dec 6, 2014

I have recently upgraded to Mavericks and now find that my old Word files (2004) can't be opened. (I can still open my Word 2008 files.) I have been a maths teacher for decades and have many old files which are still very useful but they contain more than just text; they contain diagrams, MathType expressions etc. etc. I need to be able to convert these files to files that can be opened with Mavericks. How I can do this?

Applications :: Office 2008 Upgrade/Want Word 2004 As The Default

Jan 8, 2010

Okay, so we were forced to upgrade to Office 2008 so we could use the new Entourage, but we still want to use Word 2004 as our default for opening .doc documents.

You can go into the Get Info window all day long, set it and CHANGE ALL, but it doesn't work. Have tried this on various Macs, we're mostly still running Leopard, a few on Snow Leopard.

Applications :: How To Open Docx Files In MS Word 2004 In SL

Sep 28, 2009

When docx files started floating around, I couldn't figure out how to open them in MS Word for Mac 2004. Then I found out you could download the xml converter from the MS site, and that solved the problem. However, now that I have installed Leopard and reinstalled MS Word 2004 and the requisite xml converter, for some reason, when I double click on a docx file, it does not automatically ask to convert it as it once did.

Instead, it seems to bypass/ignore the double clicked docx file and goes straight to that open document screen where you choose what type of document you want. Anyone know how to get it to automatically open the docx files up in ms word 2004 and convert with the xml converter in leopard?

Applications :: Weird Problem With MS Word 2004?

Nov 6, 2005

My friend is having a weird issue with his Microsoft Word. When he opens the program, instead of having a blank document there is box with text in it (see attached picture). Any time you click to open a blank document, this is what you get. He has never used this text before and has had this issue since he installed Office 2004.

Does anybody know how to get rid of this or set the default to a blank document?

Windows On Mac :: Disabling Macros In MS Word 2004?

Oct 28, 2007

So for the longest time my files in Word 2004 for MAC have had MACRO saved within them. This doesn't really cause any problem for me on my system but when I try to email any word files to anyone it just wont work. The file will be blocked by my hotmail account, and if I use another account that allows me to send it it usually won't work right on the other person's computer. When I try to make them .RTF files... they usually don't display right for other Word users, although they look fine to me, especially when they have some elements like shapes and text boxes within them.

Does anyone know HOW I can get these things to stop saving in every single word file I make? This wasn't always this way.... I think I just accidentally recorded a macro a while back, without knowing what they were or what the consequences might be.

Again, I just need to disable ALL macros. If you know how to do this I'd be greatful if you could share with me.

Applications :: Manipulating Photos In MS Word 2004?

Feb 18, 2009

I have a MS Word document to which I want to add photos. I've been able to drag the jpegs in question to the right place in the document, position them, and even re-size them. But when it comes to altering their positions--like nudging them a little to the right, they don't move. I've been trying to click on them to grab and then drag, but it doesn't work--they stay put, completely left justified.

Windows On Mac :: Using Word 2004 - Can't Add Words To Dictionary

Jul 9, 2010

I recently had to reinstall Windows for Mac 2004 because it refused to spellcheck my document (slightly annoying).

I remember that I had to download a plug-in in order to be able to add words to the dictionary. A technician did this, so I dont remember what the plug-in was.

Software :: Word 2004 Only Printing Last Page?

Jan 31, 2009

We recently updated our iBook running 10.3.9 to a MacBook running 10.5.5.

The problem we have is with Microsoft Word 2004. In a multi-page document, Word only prints the last page, unless we specifically print out each individual page.

I found a thread that identified a problem printing to HP all-in-one printers. I followed the instructions in the thread and removed everything about HP printers from our Mac. I then re-installed the HP drivers from the MacOS 10.5 install disk.

ICloud :: Choose Sync Or Word 2004?

Jun 1, 2012

I love sync, Calendars, and Mail  and would hate to lose them on my Macbook Pro, but it seems that if I upgrade to Lion to operate iCloud, then Word2004 won't work any more. I've tried using Word 2011, but it seems to hang up avery 5 minutes and require a force quit. 

I hate being forced to choose. I work every day with Word, to prepare reports, notes and manuals for my teaching job. I want somethign that just works, and Word2004 (like Word 5.1 which I used for 12 years before it) works. Word 2011 does not seem to be as reliable.

Software :: Find Command Gone Nuts In Word 2004 Version 11.5.6?

Jul 2, 2010

In Word 2004, when I press Cmd+F to open the "Find" window, and enter a search term, it highlights not just the first (as it has hitherto done) but ALL appearances of that term in the document, and takes me to the first one. If I then press "Enter," which would normally take me to the next occurrence of the term, it opens the footer! This strange behavior has just started

MacBook Pro :: Microsoft Word 2004 Changes Whole Document Instead Of Just Selected Text

Mar 13, 2012

I'm using MacBook Pro 10.5.8. I'm having trouble with microsoft 2004. When I select text from a portion of the document (like a paragraph) to change its property (like make it bold, or shift a block of text over by a tab), the whole document (everythiing else that i did not select) moves. This can happen to 200 pages! It's driving me nuts. It's also doing it to new documents. I have thrown away my preferences file: preferences/com.microsof.Word.plist; and restarted my computer but it keeps happening. I'm trying to finish a huge writing project with deadlines at the end of the week and it's making it really difficult to work.

Software :: Viewing Unique Header On Page 2 Of Template Word 2004?

Jun 9, 2009

I need to figure out how to access the logo image that was included in the second section of the header in a template document in Word 2004. Originally, the template was made to have two pages... with the header on each page unique. Now, the template has been changed to one page. When a document is created based on the template and a second page appears because the length of content is forcing a second page, the header on the 2nd page shows up with the one originally designed for the second page. I'd just like to find where this image is 'stored' in Word so that I can change it to something else. How do I do this?

Software :: Upgrade OS 10.3 To 10.4.x On 2004 G5?

Apr 19, 2010

I just got my brother's 2004 G5 installed, which runs on OS 10.3. Is it technically possible to download OS 10.4 (guess still Tiger) from the Apple site? Do I need a regular installation CD-rom or is it not possible at all?

As you can hear from my question I'm a total rookie if it comes to Apple.

PowerPC :: Looking Upgrade IMac (2006) And IBook (2004)

May 1, 2010

I was planning to upgrade our family's computers to a new MBP 13 inch with a 320 HDD and a iMac 3.06 GHz base model.

I was going to do a the Apple financing of no interest for 18 months since the 13 inch MBP came out but after reading online that an iMac update may be out in the near future I am wondering if I should wait.

Would like advice on whether I should just buy the 2 computers now and not worry or should I wait for next iMac. We have five kids that are using the computers and iPhones/iPods and speed is what they want for web-based games. The iBook is fine for me doing Quicken, e-mail and normal stuff but is seizing up sometimes. Hard Drive space is biggest issue since iMac only has around 160 gig HDD.

Everything I have read I believe that these 2 computers will be fine. We hold computers for 5 years and so I am getting to end of life on the ones I have.

My wife has also been using a 2006 circa MacBook Pro 17 inch that I use for work and loves it. She thought the 13 inch MBP keyboard was smaller but I told her I believe they are the same.

PowerPC :: PowerMac G5 (late 2004) Graphics Card Upgrade

Jul 9, 2008

So my mom's G5 (single 1.8) graphics card just pooped out on us.

Lot's of multi-colored lines show up on the screen at the same time and it never boots into OS X. Ran the CD Apple hardware test and the only error i got back was the video memory. So we're thinking about getting a new video card.

It has the factory card still in it and I can't really decide what kind of card needs to be purchased. I've been hunting around the internet and have found numerous conclusions that all seem to differ.

It's basically an AGP 8x slot. We don't need anything fancy just a replacement. There's an auction on ebay right now for the current card (nVidia GeForce FX 5200) but the auction has two in it and we only need one.

but anyway, if anyone could lead me in the right direction i'd really love to get my mom's mac up and running again.

PowerPC :: Powermac 1.8 G5 (2004) Versus 3.06 Imac (2009) - Should I Upgrade?

Apr 10, 2009

I'm still hanging in there with my powermac g5 from 2004 (dual 1.8 g5, 2gb ram, ati 9800xt 256mb).

I do a lot of photo processing, and some video editing. This summer i'll be upgrading my SLR (10mp to 15mp), and I'll also be shooting 720p 30fps video.

I'm thinking I should upgrade my computer the same time as the camera. The g5 has leopard and CS3, Apeture, Final cut pro. these programs are really chugging along (sigh, the g5 used to be SOOO fast).

SO my question is... will the new imac (3.06, 4gb ram, ATI HD) be a noticeable bump in performance, worth the upgrade? Also, how much should I sell my g5 for (including the aluminum 20" apple cinema display).

PowerPC :: Graphic Card Upgrade For 2004 DP 1.8Ghz Power Mac G5

Aug 15, 2010

I have a June 2004 revision Power Mac G5 (DP 1.8Ghz) with an AGP slow that is dying for a more powerful graphics card.

I have had the machine since new and have it paired with a 23" Cinema Display, Magic Mouse, BT Apple keyboard, 4GB of Kingston RAM, a pair of 500gb internal HDs, several TBs of external storage, Logitech Z2300 speakers, etc. We also have a new 15" Mac Book Pro, a 13" Mac Book, an Apple TV, Airport Extreme, etc. The desktop doesn't get a TON of use but it is still snappy enough for a lot of what I use it for.

However, since I installed Leopard on it, the OS is nowhere near as fast as it was before (with respect to UI graphics, etc).... I should have expected the newer OS would take more of a toil on the system (especially the graphics card) then did Tiger.... the system has only the factory-installed 64mb GeForce card.... I'm assuming that Leopard, probably more than Tiger, can draw from the GPU for graphic-needs/UI work and I'm assuming that a new graphics card would make a difference....

I just need help deciphering the cards that are available.... 9800XT?? X800??? Any advice on compatible 8x AGP cards would be AMAZING.
