Arabic Font won't "stick" in Word 2003

Q: Arabic Font won't "stick" in Word 2003

I am a novice, but with some experience in Word, plus had help from a professional. So we downloaded and intalled the keyboard and complex script and right-to-left languages as described here We restarted when promted. Opened a Word doc, set the language and font to Arabic transparent, but it keeps switching back to Arial or New Times Roman as soon as I type. I can open Arabic documents without any problem and I can cut & paste and it all appears as it should on the page, justified to the right, etc.

Can someone please help? Thanks a million!

Oh - and I installed it on my other computer which also runs XP, but it's Office 2007. It didn't have any problems.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I hope this makes sense!

I help a blind lady with her computer and she uses a system called Jaws with a braille reader. We've just realised that on the screen in the toolbar it claims that the font in use is Arial but when she goes into Tools and Fonts it claims that the font in use is Helvetica! Now she can't see what on the toolbar but she wants Arial not Helvetica. In fonts, if you change to Arial and click Default etc it still reverts back to Helvetica.

I've deleted with no benefit.

Any ideas??

A:Solved: Word 2003 different fonts being shown on toolbar and "font"

Yup. What it is doing is not wrong, just not what you are expecting.

What is happening is that you are requesting a font that is not in the current font set, and Windows is substituting the closest match it can find.
The font set in Jaws or the braille converter is probably gathered from Linux or a none Windows source, and Arial is not in that font set.
Arial is almost exclusive to Microsoft and was developed in 1982 from Helvetica, which is far older and more universal. Quite why MS did this is anyone's guess! Tahoma (MS-Sans or Verdana) is another one that is used in Outlook particularly.
There are quite likely other font faces that are similarly substituted.
You might like to see if Jaws has an updated font set specifically for Windows.

When ever we use the Open With function within Windows Explorer or double click on a some Word Doc files with the CG Times Font, the font is garbled. However if we open the same file from within Word the font is normal. IE does the same thing if we open the file from within it. Any Ideas?

I am not sure you can change the fonts though if you wish you can change the text from "Shutting Down" to "Bye Bye" or so, by editing, winlogon.exe.mui.

Hi everyone, irritating problem is bugging a friend.

In Word 2003 sometimes the colors used when tracking changes by author seem to be random. The default would seem to be Red, Blue, and so on, but he seems to get a sludgy orange and then gray as the next color, which makes it harder to spot changes in long documents as they don't stand out as much. I can send him a document I've created with tracked changes in red, and they come out as another color on his PC. Have tried forcing all changes to be a particular color (e.g. red) and then resetting ... with limited success.

Does anyone know if this is a bug or if there is a workaround? This site suggests the former when it says that Word "likes to be creative"!!!

I'm a network admin for about 30 users. About 10 of them are having a problem with any new document in Word (both XP and 2003). A small hollow square appears in the upper left corner. They're unable to delete it, and it freezes the "File" button on the Menu bar. Sometimes it freezes Word totally. They are able to print existing documents opened in Explorer. Very annoying! Any thoughts?

Hi Tech Support Guys,

I did a really dumb thing. After 10 hours of transcribing a huge document in Word 2003, I also had this other document open at the same time for reference, and then I accidently saved that other file over top of my transcription file name.

I know, stupid, stupid, stupid.

Now I have lost my original transcript. I do have autosave working every 10 minutes, but I never activated Word's backup feature.

Am I really as scr*wed as I think I am?

Thanks a bunch!

Would someone PLEASE help me figure my issue out. I am at a loss as to what I did on my laptop for Microsoft Word to just stop working. This is what's going on:
1. I open up Word; 2. I go to my documents & click on the doc I want to open; 3. I get the pop-up that states, for example, "The file Amer Hist Doc 3 is not available".

If I send the doc as an attachment in my email & then open it on another computer, it comes up fine. It just won't work on my laptop.

Did I accidently hit someone to make Word do this all of the sudden?? Do I just need to un-install Microsoft Office & then reinstall??

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I'm trying to find out when I first started editing a file.

This file was first copied from an existing file to serve as a template. In properties/details, "content created" has a date next to it.

Q.1. Is this the date I created the file, or would it be the date I first edited the file?

Q.2. If the latter, and if the first edit was simply to change the title on the first page before I began editing some months later, is there a way I can trace when and what I edited?


A:Word 2003 "Content Created" Question

Creation date would be the first time it was saved. Or if you did a save would be that date.

There is a way to turn on versioning in 2003, Your looking for something like 'save version on close". In 2010 you get 'Always create backup copy'. Probably because the save version on close created a bloated document.

I've worked up a Cricket scoring program, and I need a cell value to remain unchanged once it has been calculated. (For the game's aficionados, one value is runs scored at the end of each over, and another for runs total at each fall of wicket).
By trial and error I've got a sort of result, but I run into "circular function" error message on the first operation, but I can "cancel" out of that, and it doesn't occur again for the rest of the entries up to the final score result. So it's not an elegant solution. The rest of the prog's operations work perfectly.

A:"Not enough space left to complete backup" on 4GB empty memory stick?

Best to make a full copy (image) of your hard drive, to recover. The Windows backup only backs up certain files. You are still left to reinstall most everything (including Windows). The Marcrium Reflect (a UK company), free version, will do nicely. But, you need something more than a disc or flash drive. A USB connected hard drive would probably be best.

I have several different model of Kingston USB thumb drives. I haven't had any problems using them in Windows 7 or Windows 8. Non of mine are USB 3 though, is the one your having problems with a USB 3 device? Even if it is it should be backwards compatible with USB 2.0. Have a look at this.

No it doesn't need "fixing", but thanks for offering. No it doesn't need fixing this time either, but thanks anyway. Again? You forgot I didn't want it the last 100 times? Ok I've had enough.

My USB drives are set to not cache information, so as long as the data transfer light isn't flashing when I pull the memory stick out from the PC, there's pretty much no way anything can get corrupted. I've done it hundreds of times over the past few years, and never had a problem -Vista is too clever for its own good, and this is a prime example of this. USB is hot swappable!

Does anyone know a registry fix to stop that annoying "scan and fix" prompt coming up every time you plug in a removable storage device into a PC infected with Vista?

A:Registry fix to stop Vista asking to "scan and fix" USB memory stick?

Hi, I think you may misunderstand what "hot swappable" means. Basically you can add a device to a computer without having to reboot to take effect. It is plug and play, now even if you have disabled write cache current can still be running through the device and removing it can corrupt data thats why we have "safely remove hardware". What you have done is ignore convention and now have corrupted your external device. Use command prompt at the prompt use the assigned drive letter and run chkntfs /I or whatever the drive is should only bother you once more .. DO not blame the system for your failure to understand it ... Learn first.

I bought a cheap USB 1GB stick at WalMart ($9.96). It's not a "Lexar", but my guess is that it was made in the same factory in Taiwan. The brand name is "iLogic". I have a Lexar brand name USB Stick too, and that DOES show up as removable media.

It works just fine, but it's showing up as a fixed disk, not removeable.

Here's how it shows up in "My Computer":

And it doesn't even show up at all as removable media in the "Computer Management Console":

I just got a new 16GB SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 flash drive that says Local disk instead of Removable Disk, which all the other USB flash drives do.
I did uninstall its driver, replugged and it still shows as Local Disk.

A:Flash stick showing as "Local Disk"

This is usually a driver issue (99% of the time). there are a ton of articles about how to turn a flash drive into a local drive using a third party driver. My suggestion would be to contact SanDisk directly and hopefully they have an answer. By uninstalling the drivers then letting windows install the "same" drivers again your issue won't go away. Another suggestion is to look at the SanDisk website for compatible drivers.

I have seen where someone wants a program installed on a removable drive for security reasons the drive could be removed to prevent others from running said program. in order to install it the removable drive needs to be converted to local drive.

it could also be a USBstor.sys file that is corrupt. (again it's a driver issue) see this on MS forums

Try starting disk management to see if the flash drive is visible and whether or not it is partitioned and formatted. If so, should look like Disk 3 in the attached snapshot ... if not you may need to partition although these drives normally come preformatted.

5. Then disconnect USB device from system and reconnect it.

Method 2 (If autorun.inf file isn't present):

Go to command prompt, click Start and type the following command:
attrib -s -r -h X:\autorun.inf

Press enter and then type the following command:
del X:\autorun.inf

Press enter and after this disconnect USB device from system and reconnect it.

I wondering if it is possible to share an internet connection on a laptop that is using these new wireless go anywhere usb sticks.
A customer who is out of range from any high speed internet providers has purchase a USB stick device (Cell phone) connection. He has other computers and wants to set up an wireless network to share the internet signal.

Any thoughts - is this even possible.
I thought of using internet connection sharing to a wireless router.

A:Sharing internet with wireless "G" stick

You can use ICS and connect a wireless router as an access point, a bit cleaner. Here's the cookbook.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

This is very strange I have two machines both essentially identical One is called MDR and the "leading" What font in Firefox?? caused (vertical to shrink space) other is called DFW They both have ATI video cards HD in DFW with Catalyst driver and HD in DFW with Catalyst driver Same exact set of fonts installed on both machines Yesterday I was forced to restore a system image on one of them MDR from two weeks ago No problems existed at the time I What caused font "leading" (vertical space) to shrink in Firefox?? took that system image and there's no problem now that I've restored it However I now have an issue with Firefox What caused font "leading" (vertical space) to shrink in Firefox?? on that machine which has just been restored on some forum sites including this one SevenForums where the quot line density quot of text is increased from what it used to be In other words although the font is the same type and size as it used to be for some reason the blank space between each line i e the quot leading quot seems to be reduced from what it was previously so that the lines are quot denser quot and closer together vertically The actual width of the forum window is identical on both machines but on the problem machine MDR it looks like more horizontal space of each line is being used than the same line uses on DFW and the lines are closer together vertically on MDR What could have caused this now when it certainly wasn't the case on the system when that image was originally taken I immediately noticed something strange after the restore and this is the objective evidence Is there some way to change the quot leading quot on the font used for SevenForums and several other forums as well Here's a side-by-side of a few paragraphs Note the vertical spacing difference as well as the free-form variable pitch horizontal calculations and spacing which caused the number of words per line to differ Note that the third paragraph takes four lines on one machine and three lines on the other Here's an over-under of the two windows Note that they are exactly the same width as far as the forum frame is concerned But the free-form variable pitch font used simply appears differently on the two machines Anybody have the answer I'd sure like to get MDR back to the way it used to look which was identical to the way DFW looks and how MDR used to look before yesterday's system image restore Doesn't seem like repeating the system image restore should produce any different results but I suppose I could just try it again taking a current image that I can restore back to again if I have to of the currently restored system which is strangely malfunctioning in this way Does anybody know the exact font which is used in SevenForums Is this Segoe Regular or something else

A:What caused font "leading" (vertical space) to shrink in Firefox??

Well... I have solved my own problem.

I don't know how/why the restore of the Macrium Reflect system image from 9/14 on MDR would have had any effect whatsoever on PREFS.JS for Firefox on that machine, but apparently it must have. Or, something else adjacent to that system image restore actually caused a change in PREFS.JS. Don't know.

But I'm going to do further research into this as I have time-based backups going well back and I will be able to absolutely confirm what I have now discovered as the explanation for this anomaly... which is that it was actually a change to one crucial line in PREFS.JS for Firefox which was responsible for the "leading" change on the SevenForums site, among others, because of the default font used on this site.

Anyway, just as an experiment, since both DFW and MDR are really almost identical (especially in my setup of Firefox on both machines) today I decided to just copy the PROFILES files for Firefox from my "working" machine (DFW) to my "shrunken" machine (MDR), to see if that would make the font display and "leading" on SevenForums now once again appear "more spacious". I actually first saved all of the current PROFILES contents, then deleted all of them, then copied all of the PROFILES contents from DFW to MDR, and then opened Firefox on MDR.

And, amazingly... sure enough IT DID FIX THE PROBLEM! The "leading" on SevenForums was once again back to "normal", as it had been previously before the system image restore which somehow had caused the damage.

I then did a folder/file compare of the current PROFILES contents (which was now on MDR but copied from DFW, and which was now displaying properly) to the saved original PROFILES contents from MDR (which was displaying shrunken). And of all the files which were different, it appeared that PREFS.JS would be the most likely file to reveal some critical internal difference.

So I compared PREFS.JS (normal) from DFW/MDR to the original PREFS.JS saved for MDR (shrunken). And of all the lines which were understandably and reasonably different, there was one line which seemed suspiciously relevant:

MDR shrunken: user_pref("intl.charsetmenu.browser.cache", "Big5, windows-1251, us-ascii, UTF-8, ISO-8859-1");

DFW/MDR normal: user_pref("intl.charsetmenu.browser.cache", "UTF-8, windows-1252, ISO-8859-1, EUC-KR, Big5");
In other words, it was obviously some type of font-related setting (though I hadn't actually changed any of the few basic font-related options available for user customization) found in PREFS.JS which was somehow responsible for the "reduced leading".

And of those two lines, certainly the one obvious difference which is very very suspicious, and very likely the explanation, is WINDOWS-1251 vs. WINDOWS-1252.

I believe this font must be Segoe Normal 10, which I believe is the font used by default in this forum's software. And I'll bet that the WINDOWS-1251 code page looks slightly different than WINDOWS-1252 insofar as its "leading" and horizontal spacing.

In fact, I was so convinced of my discovery that I decided to try replacing just that one line in PREFS.JS (which specified WINDOWS-1252 and was now "working normally again" on MDR) with the original line from the saved PREFS.JS (which specified WINDOWS-1251 and was causing reduced "leading"), to see if I could bring back the "failure".

And... sure enough... with just that one line put back into PREFS.JS (on MDR, but copied from DFW, and which specified WINDOWS-1252) from the saved PREFS.JS (which was on the malfunctioning MDR, and which specified WINDOWS-1251), sure enough I was able to once again bring back the reduced "leading"!!

And restoring that one line back to the one which specified WINDOWS-1252, well I was once again able to get the "leading" back to "normal".

I have just finished designing a ".PDF" through Adobe InDesign CS3. The file is an invoice template that I will modify and export in ".PDF" format to send to clients.

What I was wondering was whether there is an issue with the fonts being used, and whether they would only display on other users machines (providing they didn't have the font installed on their system) in a substitute font?

For example, if I use the 'Calibri' font in the invoice, and I send the invoice as a ".PDF" to a client who does not have 'Calibri' installed on their computer, will it substitute the font with something else?

If so, is the only way around that to do the 'Create Outlines' action to each font element in the document prior to exporting it from Adobe InDesign CS3 as a ".PDF" file?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

May not be much of an answer, but if you've been running your currently installed Win7 system since probably late 2009 (which was also around the time I first installed mine), maybe you're do for a fresh reinstall?

I went about a year on my initial install, and was quite amazed at the remarkable stability and "effective lifetime before a new install was appropriate" of Win7 as compared to earlier Windows versions.

But late in 2010, I decided it was finally ok to eliminate WinXP and that alternative boot partition, and used it as the opportunity to reinstall Win7 from scratch as the proper course of action. Plus, I'd kind of "experimented" during the year trying out various add-ons and then maybe backing them out (perhaps not quite as completely as one would hope). Results of normal day-to-day operation began to exhibit the usual signs of "registry corruption" and odd behavior, similar to what used to trigger the desire to reinstall WinXP say every 6 months... to "clean house".

Then, in around March of 2011, I decided I'd actually like to have WinXP back, and once again took the opportunity to install both WinXP (in a much more leaned-down implementation, just installing the specific applications for what I needed it for) and then Win7 again.

My Win7 this third time has turned out to be fantastic, in its stability and reliability. Everything works exactly as expected, with no anomalies.

Might you consider that full reinstall option as your "solution"?

I'm using MS Outlook 2000 and I would like to use the color BLUE for my fonts by default when ever I create/compose new mail.

When ever I go FORMAT, FONTS, on the menu bar to change it, the next new mail I create will default back to BLACK.

Does anybody know how to set the color and use it as default.

Thanks in advance....

Do you happen to know where I can download the seguisym.ttf font package for Windows 8? I was downloaded a huge set of fonts I've been collecting over the years, and by accident, they pollutes the Windows 8 font and character symbols set. Now all my arrows and other Metro interface icons are missing, replaced by small rectangular boxes. Help!

A:Where can I download the "seguisym.ttf" font package for Windows 8?

Its there already.(SegoeUIsym.ttf) However you need to use something like charmap to view it. Alternatively a file manager like 7-zip will show the font file in the Windows\Fonts folder. Explorer will not open the fonts folder as a normal file folder - it opens it in Control Panel instead, hiding many of the system fonts and only showing the basic character set.

(The segoeUIsym.ttf in Windows 7 has not got the metro tile icons set in it. Perhaps if the Windows 7 file was put in the Windows 8 Fonts folder it would thoroughly trash metro - anyone up for it?)

That wasn't very helpful was it? Sorry, I should have read the original post properly.

You need your original install media for windows 8, and something that will open the /sources/install.wim file. I would recommend 7-zip:

With 7-Zip installed, navigate to /sources/install.wim and right-click it. Select the 7-zip option on the menu, and open the install.wim.

In the 7-zip file manager navigate to windows\fonts, and find seguisym.ttf.

Simply drag it to your desktop. You can close 7-zip. Right-click the seguisym.ttf file on the desktop, amd select install, and replace any version that may be there already, and you should be ok.

I'd reboot, then check out metro.

I found only one page at Sage that deals with this problem; but, the condition of "hundreds of fonts" does not exist on this system and deleting unnecessary fonts does not help.

Does anyone know where to get this font -- free.

Or maybe simply copying the font to the Fonts folder will not necessarily fix the problem. In thgat case, does anyone know of another solution?

Have you tried doing a Word document using the Tahoma font, and if so, do you get an error message? If so, that's the problem. You can reinstall fonts by following the instructions here.

Hi everyone,
I was playing with some screenshot maker software and I was setting some shortcuts. I unfortunatly pressed Alt+Shift+Printscr and the Windows' theme changed to High Contrast. When I pressed the shortcut again the theme changed back to normal, but the system font kindof "glitched" and I cant get it back to the default one.

What shall I do?

I have a strange activation problem with Activation 7 will Windows not "stick" a relatively new machine Windows 7 Activation will not "stick" from Cyberpower I am an advanced user and have built a variety of systems in the past The OS is Windows bit SP Apparently when the system was built a quot temporary quot OEM activation code was used since I assume they copy an image onto each machine they build Windows 7 Activation will not "stick" and the user is supposed to change the code on the side of the machine It is quite surprising that they did not activate it with the proper code Or possibly they did and the machine suffered from the problem below when it left the factory So shortly after I got the machine I had problems with messages about not being properly activated and MSE stopped working and updates would not be received When I realized that there was an activation problem I read the code on the side of the machine and changed the activation code in the system accordingly by going into Computer gt Properties and changing the code in that window After I entered the new activation code the message came up that this could take a while as apparently MS was checking things out on the Internet Shortly after that a message came through that the code was accepted and the machine was properly registered amp activated with MS And all was now well However since then the same thing has happened twice again This last time was a few days ago The proper code was accepted I rebooted and then I went to check the code in the system via right-clicking on quot computer quot and selecting quot properties quot the old OEM code was back so I'll have the same problem again and again I contacted CyberPower and they advised me to run the install again But that would wipe out all the installed software and take me a long time The machine did not come with a MS Windows disk but there is a CyberPower disk with Windows SP But I don't know if a quot repair quot install would fix this problem What the devil is going on I assume there is a registry key that I can access and edit to permanently change the code but I do not know the proper procedure I've activated dozens machine in the past and never had this problem There must be a way to correct the activation code and have the system properly register it in the Registry and keep it registered I can handle Registry edits but I need the steps to do it Does anyone have a solution here

When using PageMaker, Bickley Script font (and some others) does not show up in my font dropdown list; however, I know it's installed on my system - I can select it in MS Publisher (so some applications see it, others don't).

Curiously, if I type text in Publisher and then copy and paste into PageMaker, the font looks like it's supposed to (and will also print out OK), but the window showing the font name is blank. Any ideas on how to "see" the font name in PageMaker - it's very tedious to do the workaround.

I'm using Windows XP, and font name shows up in the fonts folder; if I try to "install" the font, I get a message saying it's already installed....

Thanks in advance.

In PageMaker there is a document setup box and a "compose to printer" window. If that window shows "?DISPLAY on none", the fonts won't show. If I select an actual printer from the drop-down list, the fonts will display in the fonts list.

I discovered this by visiting FAQ from a website to purchase and download fonts.
