 Introduction

This FAQ is maintained (lightly) by me, Charles Kenyon. I am not an expert at any of this but read a lot. The questions and answers come from the various newsgroups on Word. Corrections to the FAQ (or additions) can be sent to word FAQ at Add Balance. Unless otherwise indicated the answers here are for Word 97-2011 (and probably apply to Word 95, 98 & 2K). I believe that the answers as to page numbers, headers & footers, and dates apply to all versions of Word released within the since Word 95. If I'm wrong please let me know.

This FAQ is posted in the spirit of "giving forward." I am a trial lawyer and this is a hobby for me. I am not an "MVP" on the Microsoft Word newsgroups. (I am constantly humbled by their combined expertise and willingness to help others.) While I read much of my e-mail, I don’t respond to it all, and often am untimely in my responses to those I do respond to. (I usually receive more than 50 e-mails a day.) My failure to respond to many of these is not intended to be rude, it is just a fact of life in my life. Since my clients are depending on me (and paying me) to attend to their problems, they take priority over my hobbies.

The suggestions herein are “as is” and without any warranty.

A brief version of this FAQ was regularly posted on a number of the newsgroups on Microsoft Word.

This FAQ is cursory. A number of fine (and more extensive) FAQ web pages are out there and you are encouraged to check them out (see Web Resources for Microsoft Word for URLs).

Also, the answers to most of your questions are in the Help screens that came with Word - if you can only find the right screen. Try using the office assistant (that ^$#*@& paperclip) in Word 97-2003 and help in Word 2007-2010!

 

Menu trees:

In this FAQ menu tree selections are indicated by the vertical bar ( | ).

Format | Paragraph means choose Paragraph from the Format menu.

Format | Paragraph | Line Breaks and Spacing (tab) means click on the “Line Breaks and Spacing” tab of the Format Paragraph Dialog box.

Over the next several months I will be switching this FAQ to use of arrows in place of the vertical bars. Sorry for any confusion this may cause.

Format => Paragraph means choose Paragraph from the Format menu.

Format => Paragraph => Line and Page Breaks (tab) means click on the “Line and Page Breaks” tab of the Format Paragraph Dialog box.
