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]

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.

Hi to all
I run Word 2000 and just recently when I went to sent off an email I found although Times New Roman 10 was set, the font coming up on the screen was far too small,barely readable, increasing the number does increase the size It is not satisfactory really.
I have tried numerous things even reistalling Office but nothing seems to help
The same thing happens in Word

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.

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.

Thanking whomever takes the time to respond to this question.

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 was trying to configure Word 2000 to send email, but I can't seem to find the means to configure the bloody thing. I have tried help files, but wasn't much help.

Anybody plz?


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.

Hi There

This is not a macro question. I have been at this for hours now with no success. I have a picture in MS word 2000. The picture is text with a box around the text. See attached MS Word 2000 file. I want to copy this picture into Excel 2000. But when I do a copy and paste, it does paste into Excel but just the box shows up and not the writing. Can someone out there copy it and paste it for me in Excel 2000 and send it to me?? I can then copy it from your Excel spread sheet into my Excel spread sheet.

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.

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.

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.

There you go!

BTW, If you can't find this way, then go to Start, Find, Files or Folders, and in the Search Window, type in and make sure you are looking in your local hard drives. Hit enter or click on Find Now. When you find it, then right-click it and select Open, as default double-click opens a new doc based on that template.

Okay--don't laugh. I still do my basic report writing using MSWord for Dos (still faster for me). The font I have been using is Times Roman 12 point. When finished, I open the document in Word for Windows. I had been using Office 97 and the conversion was pretty good. Now, when using Office 2000, I always get a Time Roman 10 point instead of 12 point. I have even experimented with different 12 point fonts (CG Times, Courier, etc.) but when Office 2000 converts, the result is always 10 point. What is going on?

XP: Now, when I paste the Clipboard into a new Word document, to save it, the font is very small. Using 'Format' I have set the Word default for a much larger font, and if I just type a document, it works OK.

Word 97 will not let me access all the fonts on the computer. You can see the fonts in the font files but when you try to change the font in Word 97 it will not give you any choices.

One of my clients is writing a book using WORD on a WinXP Home Edition system Each chapter of his book is a separate Word document He does printing changes when Word font not apply any text formatting not even underlining bold or italics The font is set to Times New Roman and the pitch is pt Pretty basic however one of the documents seems to printing a different font size than the others It looks to be Times New Roman but is smaller I ve checked every option I can find on the documents and the printer Word font changes when printing but everything seems to be identical The only differences I can see is that one of the documents prints a markup line on the far left of the page I m assuming to show changed text while the other does not The other difference is that the page margins are different on the problem document line length is shorter I don t see how either of those options could be at issue however I do know that I don t know everything so I include this information as well Any ideas why the difference in printed font sizes Is there some way to duplicate the properties of a document similar to the format painter feature available within a document Thanks weeG nbsp

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.

Hey Everyone!

I was in MS Word 2007 the other day when I found a perfect font for a title. Knowing that I'd want to use it in other formats, I opened up Photoshop & InDesign to create a larger version of it. However, Photoshop refuses to use the font (you select the font and it just disappears). I did a little research on the internet and found out that the font I'm trying to use, Gautami, is supposed to look like this:

Gautami - Version 1.21

However, I opened up the otf file and got this preview (which is what I'm looking for!)

Here it is in MS Word:

And now in Photoshop:

Can anybody tell me why this is happening? Did my fonts get switched up somehow? I'm dying to use the font as seen in the Word document :/

Thanks a lot for your time!

Had a file, that I changed the font to Wingdings, and then restricted the editing. (my version of security by obscurity).
Anyway, when I wanted to view the file again, I stopped the restrictions, and highlighted the whole doc, and tried to set the font to New Times Roman. The only words that showed, were the hyperlink URL's. The rest of the words appeared as square boxes, regardless of the font type selected. I do have a printout, and could recreate the doc, but would like to know why it won't show the letters/words.

Square boxes instead of letters regardless of which font is selected is usually caused by missing or corrupted font files.

Somehow, I have managed to change my system font from a proportional font (Tahoma, I believe) to a fixed-width font (Courier New, I believe). By system font, I mean the font you see for system messages; in the windows that comes up when you hit ctrl-alt-del; or when you log in (the font in which both username and text on the logon window is displayed). I'm sure I did this messing with something in the registry (which I usually can do without incident, but not this time). Does anyone know where the font settings are that control the text of which I speak? This font setting is NOT affected by anything you do in "Display Properties". Thanks

There is no indication of such a font size and I need to alter it every time.

Some how my daughter accidently changed the default setting so that when you open up the Word Program, the defaults are set at an 88 font size, a font style no one uses, text already in the normal blank page and everything is light grey in color.

How do I go into the word program and change it so that when you open up "Word" the default is set at something that most of us can use for a normal document without allows having to go in and change everything?

A:Word Document - default font

Find and delete all occurrences of "" 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.

It must exist, so if your search is not successful, its the file type that is the problem, preventing you viewing it.

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.

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.

Create a rtf document with a "space", select the space, choose your font and size, save as your-template.rtf.

Change your shortcuts to open Wpad so that they open your-template.rtf and that's it.

Enable the viewing of hidden and system files.
Do not have Word running.
Search for and delete all occurrences of the "" file.
There must be at least one, if you find none, you have not enabled the viewing of hidden and system files.

What I'm wondering is - what is the easiest way to reinstall the Symbol Font if I don't have the CD for the OS? Can I copy the Symbol Font into a shared folder which he has access to and drag and drop it into his Fonts folder, thus overwriting and replacing his old Symbol Font? Are there any limitations to this? Is the an easier or better way to do it?

Thanks very much!

I sent a bulleted message to myself from his computer and the clock faces did not appear on my screen...they were bullets.

So it is his bullet font and it's limited to Outlook 97. Just not sure how to fix it.

PS - he was busy when I tried the font install, so I'm hoping that once he shuts down Outlook completely and restarts it that maybe the effects will take effect...fingers crossed!!!

I would love to open Notepad to find the font set at something I like. 'Verdana' for example, so I can just get straight on.

I know I sound lazy, but I use Note or Wordpad a lot, often dozens of times in a day, and I need to use a font I can see.

I'm just sick of having to do this adjustment every bloody time!!

I would be very grateful for any ideas.

Notepad should always open using the font you used last saved something. So if you open Notepad, type one letter, change the font to Verdana and save it somewhere as Temp.txt next time you open Notepad it will use Verdana. You can delete this Temp.txt file - it was only to populate the registry with the last used font. Notepad will keep on using Verdana until you change the font in some other document and save that.

In MS Word 2010, the default font for a new blank document is set for Calibri size 10. I went though the procedure to change the default size to 12. I've attached screen shots of the two dialog windows that open as part of this process. Opening a new document still has the font set at 10. This happens even if I do not close the program and open another new document.

I see no attachments, but the simplist way is to click the small arrow, that is in the lower right corner of the Font area.
It will open the Font settings pane. Make the changes that you what and then click on the "Set as Deault" button in the lower left corner of the pane.

My default font for Word is now Times Roman 12. So when I copy something from the Web or elsewhere, it is copied to Word as Times Roman, I want it to copy directly as Arial 12 , so that I don't have to change it. I use Arial all the time.

How can I do this without clicking on a couple of other steps starting with File?

Thanks in advance.

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 problem. I bought a new laptop and the font is quite different to the font I use on my windows 8. Please can someone help me to fix this problem?

Here's the right font.
My font now in Windows 10 - Word 2013.
The wrong font and how it looks. It looks weird and "skinny". I have no idea. I read some tutorial about DPI and if I disabled it from the compatibility. I did that and this didn't change. For now I'm using my old laptop because this is such a frustrating problem. Please help me to fix it.

Thanks a lot.
