Re: Bizarre file legacy problems

I'll check with her - I always use the formatting option, generally from the character panel in the tools window. She did once mention "Fast Track" - I had no idea what she meant and I asked her but she didn't reply.

Bizarre file legacy problems

I'm having some very strange problems with a file that I am jointly working on with a colleague. It's a translation and we pass it to and fro so that each can make comments as we progress, but as we do so we have noticed that previous and superceded annotations (specifically text attributes such as ...

Re: resizing headers and footers

Thank you!

(The headers and footers seem to be default-locked if page guides aren't visible - I suppose there's no way around this? Not that it really matters if I have page guides visible)

Re: resizing headers and footers

Definitely in page view - otherwise I wouldn't see the headers!

resizing headers and footers

Why are there no longer any "handles" to resize headers and footers? I didn't notice when this disappeared, but I used to be able to select the header (or footer) and hovering over the edge of the margin the cursor would change to a pull handle to resize. I now have to go to the margins palette to e...

Re: Slow opening files in background

Hi Martin, yes, LibreOffice importer, exactly as per your screen. And, yes, it's the same every time and with every file regardless how often I try. Just stops when it's in the background. Actually (didn't think of this before) I can close all my finder windows, switch to finder and still be able to...

Re: Slow opening files in background

Yes, already had the Intel version of 1.4.2. So I suppose I need 2.0.2.

Re: Slow opening files in background

I remember discussing this a while ago when I upgraded to Lion. I can't remember if I ended up sorting out the NWP Intel upgrade, but I'll try it again. I expect I'll end up buying the 2.0.2 upgrade.

Slow opening files in background

Is this just my problem? NWP seems to stop opening a file if I switch to another app while it's doing so. When I double click on "report.doc" and NWP starts opening the file, the box comes up with "Converting file format..." and the progress bar, but if I switch to another app (eg,Firefox, to write ...

opening a doc file - content missing

I've been sent a doc file, opened it with NWP 1.4.2 and responded to the sender that part of the document was missing. No it's not, she said, so I sent the file to Zamzar for conversion to pdf and lo! the missing text mysteriously appeared in the pdf. Has anyone else had this problem? A bit worrying...

Can't open a doc file since upgrading to LIon

Upgraded to Lion yesterday and just tried to open a .doc file - no go: "You can't open the application soffice.bin because PowerPC applications are no longer supported."

Anyone???

Thanks!

global changes in docs with tables

How do I globally change the language in a document with tables? I've been doing a select all (and everything including text within the tables is highlighted). I use the flag in the bottom right to change the language to French, but when I de-select and go to the text, the text outside the tables ha...
