Changing symbol font from Word 2000 to Word 97

Q: Changing symbol font from Word 2000 to Word 97

I have had a search of the forum and can't find a solution to this, so apologies if it is a known / obvious fix for the experts!

I have created a document in Word 2000 that includes some "Windings" symbols. In opening the document on other machines in Word 97, some of them have changed font colour and turned into "Wingdings 2" and others have remained in "Wingdings" but changed font colour.
Wingdings is definitely an installed font on the machines I have tried, and it appears to be a consistent change on those different machines (i.e. replaced characters are the same and colour changesare the same).
[We are all appear to be using the same printer drivers and are using Windows 98]

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Changing symbol font from Word 2000 to Word 97

Slight error in the above. Gone back to original machine and checked document. When opening in Word 97 the font isn't actually changing as I did use "Wingdings 2" in the original anyway, but clolours are changing and the actual symbol used in "Wingdings 2" has changed.

So basically the two problems are:

1 - font colours are changing on all the symbol font characters (whether "Wingdings" or "Wingdings 2").
2 - a different symbol is being used for those in "Wingdings 2" on the Word 97 machines.

Word 2000 default font is Times New Roman 12.
How can it be changed to, say, Georgian, Courier New, or other fonts & the size you want for it?

Hi all, just 2 weeks back i've come across a new problem in Word2000. I've a friend try to change the font sizes in Word 2000 when using Arabic Fonts. But she is unable to do that. But if she were to try changing the Arabic Fonts size in Excel 2000, she will be able to do that. I've tried logging on as another user id (Windows 2000) but the problem persist.

Have also tried to repair office, un-install/re-install office, re-create a new profile for her, but nothing seems to work.

Any ideas?

I have done this before, successfully. Now when I go through the steps, and say YES to saving a default font, it does not save it. I am not messing with styles or anything else--just trying to change the default font for the Normal style. All the steps I try seem to work, but when I go back into Word, the change has not held.

Ok, I've been using word for a long time now and recently downloaded and installed a new font, unfortunately when i tried using this font to type in microsoft word the program automatically changed the font back to times new roman after about 5 lines. I changed the font back to the one i had chosen to use and it took about a line and a half for word to revert back to times new roman without my consent or permission.

Is there a reason this happening and if so what can i do to fix it?

I have a Word 2000 program which has worked well in the past. For at least a couple of years. I have not knowingly tinkered or screwed with the program in any way, but suddenly now I cannot control the font size with the usual Format/Font command. All fonts are too large. The smallest font, 8 pt, looks more like 16 pt. Sixteen point looks correspondingly much larger.

The program is registered to me, but I can't find the blasted disk to reinstall it.

Does anybody have any helpful thoughts? I thank you for them.

I have a Study Guide with questions in Microsoft Works Word Processor and I wanted to fill in the answers in a different font and color. But every time I click the question I want to answer, it automatically changes to the font and color of the question. So I have to type the answers and then highlight it and change the font and color manually. I have a ton of questions to answer and it is getting to be really time consuming to have to go back and change them all manually. Is there a way to set the font and color to be locked and never change even if I click a word or line that has a different font and color?

A command I often us in my Word toolbar is Font Color (the icon has an emboldened A). Recently, when putting my cursor on the icon to open it and change the color of the font(s), it will not work. So, I have to right-click on the toolbar, go to Customize?drag the icon back into Customize drop-down box, re-open Format and drag another Font Color back up to the toolbar. But, this works only for a few minutes and then stops working again.

I have tried all different scenarios to overcome this problem, but have no idea why such a simple thing is not working as it should?and this has never happened in all the years I have been using my computer.

Greetings,

I need a step by step list to make the font sizes of my return address envelopes bigger by about two levels. I am happy with the font size of the delivery address default, but the return address default is too small. The guide I found on line wasn't very helpful, as it read like brain surgery!

I have legacy Word experience using Word 97-2003, and envelope settings were much easier to select on those versions! Note that I want to keep the return address envelope font size as the default envelope setting.

A:Microsoft Word 2000 aka MS Word 2000 - Sending Email - Need Help Configuring

Word itself does not send (or receive) e-mail messages. You may configure Word to be your e-mail editor, but it still requires an e-mail program (such as MS Outlook) to send messages.

You can send e-mails from within Word by using File, Send To, Mail Recipient (or Mail Recipient as Attachment), but this still uses Outlook to do the sending and receiving.

Hello, I am a consultant in central Texas and I have a customer that does not recall the chronology of how he got into this situation but basically, I'll attempt to explain. He has Word 2000 installed on an XP Pro machine. He wants to do a mailing that 2000 is unable to handle. We found that 97 will do the desired process with no problem. I tried to install Word 97 to his computer but the setup program indicates that 97 is already on the machine. There is no trace of Word 97 that I can find. The customer thinks that he has vacillated between 97 and 2000 at least twice. I just want both on this machine at the same time. I could uninstall both and then reinstall 2000 then 97 and I think it will work but I was hoping to avoid the uninstalls. Any ideas?
 

A:Unable to install Word 97 on Word 2000 machine

It sounds like Uncle Bill left some fragments in the registry (or, hopefully, just a file used to flag Word'97's presence).

Hopefully you are using "My Documents" to save everything created in MSWord (either version); that will make it pretty easy to back up the files you don't want to take chances on. Burn a couple CDs or DVDs as needed/if available.

Check the Add/Delete Programs- to see which version/s are installed. I would uninstall each one- re-starting the computer between uninstalls.

With operating systems it makes a difference in which order they are installed; I would follow the same rule for the same reasons--- install the older one first (Word 97). Paranoia makes me want to shut down & reboot between versions. Then install Word 2000.

Good luck.

One of the features I really liked in the DOS version of WordPerfect 5.1 was the ability, when highlighting, to simply type a character or string of chars. near the end of the relevant portion to be highlighted and have the program take the highlight directly there.

Can WORD 2000 do this? So far, all I can figure out is how to highlight either an entire word, sentence, or line, but none of them with the precision that WordPerfect 5.1 allowed.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

And GOBBLE-GOBBLE!!!

A:Word 2000 Doc's offset under Word 2002

are you flipping between 2000 and 2002?

why not use the same version of word on both computers?

i ran into a different problem with office '97 and 2000 and changed all systems to 2k.
i'd run a 97 or 2k word doc and was always asked if i wanted to change to the other format, sometimes i did, sometimes i didn't.

i have a feeling you try to look at a doc done in 2k and want to view it in 2002.
when you finish you're probably asked do you want to revert back to 2k and that's why you're having problems.
if you change it to 2002 it 's supposed to be backward compatible with 2k and you don't say if this is happening one time or every time.

Is there a setting that is not showing these boxes.

Whats weird is. On the users who do not show these boxes if you highlight where the box is and go to insert Symbol. It will show 3 empty Boxes that should have 3 squares.

Hello--

I'm having a hard time figuring where and how to post this.

Suddenly my computer converted all of my word documents to Word Pad. I fiddled with it and got it to change individual documents to Word when I re-save them, but I'm still getting new documents in Word.

Worse, it removes the headings and scrambles forms, which I have to repair each time.

Can somebody tell me how to re-set my computer so that when I get a Word document in email, it will stay in Word without convertint to Word Pad?

Thanks,

On a computer running W95 OSR2 and Word97 I created a .doc file using different symbols found in "Insert/Symbol/Shortcut key/Press new shortcut key" and then I assigned as shortcuts functional keys F3...F12. I opened that file on another computer running WMe and Word2K and I got other symbols than the first ones.
I configured the functional keys F3...F12 as shortcuts for the same symbols as on the first computer but it didn't work.
I want to replace the new symbols with the old ones (the originals I used on my .doc).
How can I configure the Word2K to do that.
Thank you wery much!!!

Save a blank version of your document with these shortcuts as a different template file (extension .dot) Shortcut keys will travel with a template, but not with a document. Reattach your .doc file to this new template, and take both to the new machine.

Hi,
Just bought a new tablet pc which came with the newest version of of Word. i am using files created on this laptop with other pc's running word 2000. When i create files on this new laptop i need to save them down to the previous version in order to access them from the other laptops and pc's. Also, I don't really like the new interface, and would prefer to use the older one. Is this possible??

Word Processing Help.
I have Windows ME and have made a list of my collection of stamps as a WORD Doc. I now want to amend this list/s with Catalogue numbers, values,etc but find that when I enter new tab positions to enter these extra details these tab positions change without apparent reason. Suggestions on where I can get a short course (or read about) word processing.

 

A:Word Processing with MS Word 2000

My suggest:

Do it in a table instead.

Turn your show hide button on.
It looks like a backward P on your toolbar.
Then, Insert-Table and tell it how many columns you want, and just choose 2 rows for now.

In the first row, type your column headings and bold them. In the second row, put your first item. When you hit tab within a table, it will:

a) take to you the next cell to the right
OR
b) create a brand new row for you if you're already in the last cell of the table

Select JUST the text (not the backward Ps at the end of each of your lines, and not the arrows, which represent tabs) and then click and drag them into the appropriate cells of your table.

To get more rows, click in the last cell of your table and hit tab until you get the number of rows you want to work with for now.

If you've got TONS and TONS of items already tabbed the way you previously described, send me your file, and I'll hook you up with the tables in about 5 minutes. But it would take me an hour to tell you how to do it.

If I continue with the replace, the square root symbol is replaced by a cute little square, not the tick that I urgently need. Please help!
 

A:Solved: Edit and replace tick symbol in MS Word 2007

Welcome to the Forum!
Your problem isn't with the square root symbol - it is being found and replaced. The problem is with the replacement. Open a new document and insert the symbol you want (the "2 'tick' symbol") and the square root symbol. Copy the square root symbol.
Go back to your original document and open up the Replace pop-up.
Set the Font to Symbol for both the Find and Replace fields (I assume that is what you are using) and CTRL-V the square root symbol into the Find field. (No, it won't look like that, but that is okay.) Go back to the other document and copy the "2 'tick' symbol" and CTRL-V it into the Replace filed (it also will not look like what you expect.
Click Find and Replace when it comes to the first found symbol (just to make sure it looks like you want.)
If it looks okay, click Replace all.

If you saved the file in the "new" Word 2007 format (with a file extension of .docx) then you will be unable to open it in the other applications.

For Word 2003 you can install a converter, but I know of no XLM converter for WordPerfect.

When using Word 2007 you need to "save as" Word 97-2003 format to retain backwards compatibility.

Hi,

Let's say you want to find the word "you" in your document and make it red.

You would choose Edit-->Replace.

In the Find and Replace dialog box, you would type "you" in the FIND WHAT text box, and type "you" in the REPLACE WITH text box.

Then click on the "More" button on the right-hand side of the dialog box.

In the "Replace" section of the more options, choose the format button and choose FONT from the menu list.

In the FONT options, choose red for the color and then choose ok.

Then you either click the "Replace" or "Replace All" buttons in the dialog box to make the changes.

Good luck,

A:Word font changes when printing

It sounds like the "odd" document has "track changes" set "on"

This gives the editing bars, shorter line lengths and can affect the printed output as its expecting to include all the changes in the document out to the right, while maintaining pagination.

Something has to give, and its likely the font size.

Turn track changes off on the document and ensure that the prining options are not set to show them.

A:Word Document - default font

Find and delete all occurrences of "normal.dot" on the PC, when Word is not open.

When Word finds none when starting a new blank one with the standard defaults is created.

It's a hidden or system file so depending on your Windows version you may need to enable the viewing of this file type to find it to delete it.

I work for a graphic design studio and I have a technical question about Microsoft Word templates We designed a word template for one of our clients and they are Template Font Word Issue having issues with the newly installed font UniversLTStd We created the templates on a mac computer and the client is using a PC While this font is not a Word Template Font Issue standard-issue for Windows the client purchased a windows compatible version of the font for their system When the text is set in Univers in the word template each time the text is edited saved or if the client switches to another window and returns to the word document - the text weight and or letterspacing is affected This problem is occurring on all of the computers in their office While these problems are quite dramatic on the screen all the documents print correctly When the same text is changed to another font there are no problems We tested several fonts including Futura and Helvetica which are not standard Windows fonts We are thinking that this must be a compatibility issue with the Univers font that the client installed on their system The client is using Windows XP Professional with MS Office After much troubleshooting we found that the font issue seems to be connected to the file extension When the Word file ends with the extension doc the font works correctly and there are no issues However the client insists that the files must be dot files because these files prompt them to re-save and rename the file Please advise nbsp

A:Word Template Font Issue

The "DOT" is a template, as the DOC is a document.

How are you designing this "Template" on the Mac and expect it to work on a PC?

What version of Word are you using on this Mac?

Hi,

I want to fill in a 22 page questionnaire in MS-WORD. The questions are written in Ariel,,,,, but I want my answers to be in another font.

There are loads of questions, so I don't want to go back to each question to alter my one or two word reply.

Is there a way that all my answers will be in my chosen font ,,,, but leave the questions in Ariel ?

thanks for reading

A:Default a Font in MS-Word 2007

I managed to alter the actual Default within MS-Word, to my chosen one.
And I thought that I'd hit pay-dirt, when I learned how to change the 'system' font.
This has changed 90% of the whole computer system: Desktop / O.Express etc etc.

,,,, but it still hasn't changed the font as I write after previous fonts !

Any ideas please ?

cheers

I have recently started to use Word 2007. Specifically I am editing 2 documents side by side. I edit from the right and drag the edit words into the document on my left. Always, the text that has been "dropped" comes up as 10.5 or 12.5 in font size, having left the source page as a whole font size! There is no indication of such a font size and I need to alter it every time.

I have looked at the Word Options - Advanced Options but can see nothing about my problem. I have checked the template and it is fine.... no half size on the Normal.doc.

Any thought would be appreciated. TIA

Hello! A long time problem I have had in Word 2003 is sometimes when I use the backspace key, the text immediately in front of the cursor changes to a different font. Usually three or four words change, and it always changes to the font "page number + italic". This has happened in hundreds of documents - some I have created, some have been sent to me by others. It does not always happen, and it can happen intermittently within the same document.

I have tried and tried to fugure out what on earth is causing this. Any help would be VERY much appreciated! Thanks.
 

A:Backspace causes font change in Word - sometimes!

hi Smedley,

Looks like that when you are backspacing you are removing the paragraph format marks.

The text format is specified in these hidden marks at the end of each text format block.

Click on the symbol in the tool bar to show these and you will be able to see if that is the case.

Click again to return to them not being displayed.

Was it possible to print a document that has a unique font and you are going to save it in a pen drive and print it to another computer??

I mean, is there any trick so the font will be preserve?or what?

I think it all depends on whether that font is available on the pen drive. What happens when you try it?

When I save a document in the rtf format the rtf font table contains hundreds of fonts rather than only the ones used in this document.
Does anyone know why this is and how to stop it.
Note I know of some people on SP3 of Word 2003 who do not have this problem and some that do.
Is there a setting somewhere?

I've always had my font size set at 12 until one day, for reasons known not to me, it changed to 10. The Help function is no help at all, so would someone please tell me the (presumably VERY simple) solution to set the default size back to 12?
 

A:Default font in Word documents

it actually changed in 2k2....try clicking format, font, and set it to your desired settings, and then if you have a newer version, you should see a 'default' button on the lower left, which resets it to default.

Let me know if that did it.

Hi Guys

I run WORD 2003. Lately the default font has been reverting to Time New Roman - 12 PT without any interference from me. I tried several time to change the default back to my preference (Garamond 14), but the next day it reverts back to Times New Roman. Any ideas?

A:Solved: Word font default

Well, did you click the [Default] button when you tried to change the default font. I.e., open a blank Word doc, click Format, Font, choose the font you want, then click the [Default] button at the bottom left of the window? I have MSO 2000, not 2003, but work with 2003 at a client's, and it works essentially the same.

Can someone tell me how I can permanently change the default font in Word Pad?

A:Change font permanently in Word Pad?

Hmm, you can use a trick as i think you can't change the default font in Wpad.

Create a rtf document with a "space", select the space, choose your font and size, save as your-template.rtf.
In properties, tick read only to avoid modifying it, be sur that rtf files open with Wpad.
Change your shortcuts to open Wpad so that they open your-template.rtf and that's it.

Are you sure it is a font that came with MS-Word?

Microsoft has a web page that lets you pick a font name from a list and it shows you what applications come with that font. A font called Krishna is not on the list.
