Arabic letters became disordered after updating to office 2013

Q: Arabic letters became disordered after updating to office 2013


I have a lot of vocabulary translated from English to Arabic and saved in word files. Up until now I was using MS Office 2007 but after the update to version 2013 the arabic words became disordered. I will give you an example with an english word- instead "faction" it is displayed as "noitcaf". Can anyone tell me is it possible to rearrange the letters at once or I will have to do it manually one by one?

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.)

A: Arabic letters became disordered after updating to office 2013

Hi Usercloud, welcome to the Seven Forums.

For Arabic, Hebrew or any other language written from right to left to work in Office as they should, you need to add corresponding input language and enable its keyboard layout. In your case, have you added Arabic as input language and enabled Arabic layout?

Interesting problem with Office here The Click-to-Run version which I have is supposed to automatically update independently and not via Microsoft not updating Click-to-Run Office 2013 properly? version Update Indeed when I check the version information in File Account Product Information Office Office 2013 Click-to-Run version not updating properly? Updates it shows that my Office installation is version which is the current up-to-date version according to https support microsoft com en-us - -update And when I manually check for updates it says Office is up to date For a long time I took this to mean Office is updated and all is well But then yesterday I had a curious Office 2013 Click-to-Run version not updating properly? moment and started to manually check the file versions comparing them to those linked in this month's Microsoft's security bulletin for Office just out of curiosity and boredom For example this page https support microsoft com en-us kb gives the data for this month's update for Word and as an example it says that the latest current winword exe can be identified by its version number of But what do you know when I check the version information of the winword exe I have on my computer with its supposedly up-to-date Office installation the version on my Office 2013 Click-to-Run version not updating properly? computer is in fact The date is wrong as well So I check some other files like powerpnt exe and again the files seem to be old versions not the versions that MS gives in its latest update description pages Imagine my surprise Office says it's up to date but the file version data says the opposite So what should I make of this Is Office up to date or is it not And if not how do I fix it If it is how can that be the case when the files are old versions Does Click-to-Run have some weird in-memory patching that doesn't update the files on the hard drive or some even stranger magic

using Google translate I translated "Zekrom Black is in Kuwait" into Arabic because I am making a picture in photoshop about friend's archeology intern in Kuwait so the title was going to be that in Arabic. but Windows 7 is copying the translated text backwards, even in notepad, it goes right when I hit the left arrow until it hits the word "Zekrom" (Zekrom is at the wrong spot in the pasted text (different than Google)) then Windows 7 goes in the right direction.

how do I get Windows 7 to paste the text properly and go the right direction?

Hey there, I was hoping you guys could help me out real quick. I just installed Windows 7 Professional yesterday and after enabling Arabic as a second language it only lets me type the characters "عربية" and not the letters "1234" I got it setup so it does allow typing of the numbers in Arabic in office as well, but if i copy it into another program such as firefox or IE, they turn back into English numbers.

Please help.

Outlook 2013 requires (and there is no option unlike in Outlook 2010 to disable it by unchecking a box) a TEST email to be sent and working before your account(s) can be configured-- Once it's done you don't have to be online but if you need to set up several accounts and you don't have a working internet connection -- Tough luck....

Of course you can uncheck the Test email box. It has been so in all Outlook versions, is still so in Outlook 2013.

The option is grayed out exactly as long as the NEXT button is grayed out i.e. as long as they could not be used due missing credentials, until the setup has all relevant information for an email account to work (email address, incoming and outgoing servers, username and password). When you have filled the needed credentials, both the Test box and NEXT button become visible and can be clicked / selected.

Although I could well understand that setting up an email account, which in any case needs a working connection, would require an existing connection, this is not the case with Outlook 2013. You can set your email accounts up while sitting in a pub in Brussels watching Premier League Football without Internet connection if you want to .

Hi there Whoever designed the base colors for Office must have been totally STONE DEAF and COLOR BLIND at the same time I can't believe that comments weren't made before this stuff was allowed out of the door There's almost no possibilities to customize the backgrounds or colors and on a large monitor the base white looks really HIDEOUS -- you need a good pair of Sunglasses while working with it The Outlook 2013 (Office De-Uglify Help 2013) to only other choice is some type of Grey shown in screenshot which looks very similar to quot The Fruit Company's Window colour scheme Still looks Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) Help to De-Uglify hideous and that Blue Outlook also displays the unread message titles in the most sickly blue can't seem to change it I've ever seen Before I remove this POS from my computer is there anyway to De-Uglify or customize like I had in Office with the Black background I don't like it opening with a prompt screen before I get the base screen often needs another TWO keyboard strokes -- example for EXCEL shown -- I should be able to open it in a Window with the menus just like like Office It means I now have to make a load of extra keyboard strokes before I actually get a workbook screen to start getting my work done I don't want the sign in reminders either -- I don't intend to use Cloud services etc Cheers jimbo

We are wanting to up-grade our current Office suite Office 2003 to either Office 2010 or Office 2013.  Our PC's are running Windows 7
I would just like to know what peoples opinions and advice is on this?

A:Up-grade from Office 2003 to Office 2010 or Office 2013

 I can't speak to Office 2013, but I've done numerous upgrades to Office through 2010.  When you install the new version, you have the option to keep the old version or just replace it.  Starting with Office 2007 the familiar menu bar has been replaced with the ribbons which take a lot of getting used to for folks used to older versions.  There's a little program called UbitMenu that will add most of the menu bar functions back in the 2007 and 2010 versions that a lot of folks find helpful.  If you do opt to have two different versions installed at the same time, what happens is that when you switch from one to the other, it goes through a juggling act that takes a minute or so.  It's a bit of a pain, but if you need it, it could be a convenience.
Good luck.

A charity is considering upgrading its workstations to Office 2013 from Office 2007.
They have lots of files in the .docx, .xlsx, .xlsm, and .xltm formats that they would need to access on a daily basis.

- Would the upgrade cause compatability problems with working with files created under these above formats?

We have an upgrade on our computer units here in the company, my problem is when users save their 2007 excel files an error pops up, Errors were detected while saving "File Name". Microsoft maybe able to save the file by removing or repairing some features. To make the repairs in new file, click Continue. To cancel saving the file, click Cancel.

By the way, the files were save on the file server and users access them through single roaming profile that we created with full access on their folders.
i am hoping i could find an answer.

A:Purchased Office 2010 w/ free upgrade to Office 2013

Hi there
it's in the Ms store already -- although IMO I'd stick to Office 2010 if I were you.
Anyway YMMV so here's the link (UK store) .

Microsoft Store United Kingdom Online Store - Office Suites

What you'd do to get the upgrade price I don't know but Office 2013 IS available for download. Try phoning / emailing -- actually a better option these days is to use a FAX believe it or not for this type of question. Emails tend to get lost as people have 100'000's to deal with, phone calls are diabolical --endless menu systems, loads of waiting and people on the other side of the planet who are incredibly difficult to understand.

The lowly fax machine when it chatters into life usually gets INSTANT attention these days . !!

I am concerned about losing my data over the transition.

I received the message that it is not possible to instal the 64 bit version until the 32 bit version is removed.

I would be very grateful if someone would provide guidance on the correct order and steps to accomplish this change over. The Data is backed up. I would not like to lose the Data in the various programs.

Hi there
Why on earth do people insist on using these 3rd party uninstaller apps for BOG STANDARD Microsoft applications --Ms OFFICE is one of the most used pieces of software on earth so installing / uninstalling it should be a breeze via STANDARD uninstall method.

Had you simply uninstalled via control panel then the entire problem would not exist.

Your 3rd party uninstaller obviously hasn't done its job properly as there is still some indication on your machine that Microsoft Update thinks you still have Office 2010 installed.

IMO 3rd party apps are better left for NON OS type applications - things like installing / uninstalling / updating software should be left to the OS itself. Very few 3rd party apps IMO should be allowed to interfere with the internal functions of the OS itself -- even AV software - but that's another issue.

My solution here would be to either restore your syste to a time before you installed the "Uninstaller" app or re-install a clean copy of windows, re-install the version of office you want and apply the updates.

Note -- when Ms updates programs it might make all sorts of registry changes "on the fly" and it's impossible for a 3rd party uninstaller to be able to handle or even find all these changes.

I am running Office 2013 on a cleanly installd SDD that has only ever had office 2013 installed on it. Any idea why windows update is giving me Office 2007 updates, specifically


I should decline these, right?


A:Office 2007 updates when I only have Office 2013

No don't decline these updates.
Office 2013 updates in the background & does not show up in the usual Windows Updates section. I am using Office 2013 Pro & I have it set for installing updates automatically.
It would be best just to let any updates that are required to be installed. Often certain updates are incorporated to cover a few versions of Office as they earlier ones need it so they incorporate it to cover all the applicable versions, which may also include later versions.
Therefore just leave it alone as fiddling with updates often causes trouble. Also it is just a whole lot of unnecessary work for you.

Good morning,

I recently upgraded from Office 2010 Pro to Office 2013 Pro. However, after the install, all of the office products are showing as <NAME> (desktop) - i.e. Word (desktop), Powerpoint (desktop). Yet, when they are opened, the program is shown as Word 2013, Powerpoint 2013, etc. When I try to pin a file to the taskbar, it pins it under the Word (desktop) program, but when I open that file, it opens in Word 2013.

I am able to pin both Word 2013 and Word (desktop) to my taskbar. I am ONLY able to pin files to Word (desktop), but files only open using Word 2013. Both options open the same program. It is frustrating to have one program pinned just to have files pinned, only to have those files open in another taskbar "tile."
Why are they separate? Is there any way to get rid of one?

Any assistance is GREATLY appreciated!


A:Updated to Office 2013 Pro: Word (Desktop) vs Word 2013

Hi PrimetimeHero welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

It does seem that you have a duplicate set of short cuts to your Office products.

Normally it is best to store your Office product files in your Documents Library, under their various Folder titles such as Word Documents, Excel Spreadsheets etc. This keep them all in the one area for easy location.

Check to see whether you have duplicate copies of the actual files & if so make sure they are up to date & correct & delete one of them. Then delete the duplicate Shot Cuts then open your Documents Folder in your Documents library. Then locate a file in Documents such as Word xxx & if you want to have a short cut to it on your Desktop, right click on it & use Send To (create Desktop short cut).

As your information is not really clear, perhaps you could post back with more info on where your various Office files are actually located.

Below is a screen shot of my Documents Folder to expalin what I have been saying.

While possible it is not recommended to install multiple versions of Office on the same computer. But they both must be the same bits. The only way this could be done is to install one on a virtual machine.

Is there any difference in the features provided by office 2013 vs office 365? I am looking to get one, but cannot decide.

A:Choosing between office 2013 and office 365

yes some extras , they are both 2013 versions at the moment
365 gives you the full range
365 you can unauthorise and re-install on a different PC
365 comes with 1TB of onedrive space
365 you can also put on a tablet or phone
365 will be updated to the latest version

2013 stays on the PC its first installed on and cannot be transferred
2013 you can get different versions (with outlook, publisher, access products), which cost different prices

OK I am curious. I am trying to understand the difference between these two: Office 2013 is just an updated version from office 2011 and its predecessor, and Office 365 is like Google docs, except that its a paid subscription. I don't see any logic to why I want to pay annually where I can just do Google docs, or just use a regular office application.

Nice article with a comparison chart: Office 365 vs. Office 2013: Should you rent or own?Only you know your personal use needs and requirements. If it's about money there are free alternatives. Renting means always the latest and greatest updated apps available. Buying means at some point antiquated and possibly no longer compatible or becoming problematic.

A:Office 2010 (32 bit) and Office 2013 (64 bit) together

Here is one reference that might satisfy you:

"Compatibility with existing Office files and solutions

The 64-bit version of Microsoft Office isn?t compatible with any other 32-bit version of Office programs. So you must first uninstall all 32-bit versions of Office programs before you install the 64-bit version of Office."

I found another on Technet, but like a dummy I left the page, and, for some reason, couldn't find the reference again. It said 64 and 32 bit versions cannot be installed on the same machine.

I have a fully licensed copy of MS office 2013. I have been sent a word.doc attachment on an email and saved it to the HDD, but Word refuses to open it!!!!

A:MS Office 2013

First thing I would suggest is to ask for the file to be re-sent, as it is possible that the file has been damaged in transit.

I have also had occasions where a "Word Compatible" program has been used to generate the document and this is not actually compatible, Re-saving the original as another format Docx or even RTF can sometimes solve this, (I've even seen this happen when using another Word revision to generate the document, though this is rare)

Hi I just purchased office 2013 through my company for my daughters laptop, can I use this on my laptop to or am I restricted to only one user per purchase?

A:2013 office

It has been reported on this forum that installers of Office 2013 purchased via company benefits plans are ONETIME, ONE COMPUTER online installers. So, unless you have Office 365 subscription you are pretty much permanently locked to one computer.

In other words, you get an exe file of about 300-400 KB. This thing has a key embedded in it. Once you will start it, it will download Office 2013 installation files.
This function is a onetime function. Likely, it wont work again even on the same computer.
You won't be able to REinstall your Office 2013 even for this current computer with the very same file.
You would have to purchase some extra backup dvd in order to be able to reinstall it EVEN ON THE SAME computer.

Thus, indeed Office 2013 available via company benefits plan is likely locked to ONE computer and ONE installation on this computer (if you have your hdd wiped and will try to reinstall it on the same computer without extra backup dvd it WON'T work).

I'm very confused about Office 2013. This site and other claim it is now available to businesses

But I can't find were to buy it Also, there is office 365 which is confusing me even more.

And I can find a customer preview when searching for 'Buy office 2013 business': But what is this?

Is it really available at the moment? Or should I get 365? Any feedback would be great

A:Office 2013 is it available now?

It is available to businesses through their volume licensing program, but you can't buy it retail yet.

The customer preview is a beta version that you can try before you buy it. It has a limited term (30 days, 60 days, etc), after which it will expire unless you enter a valid license key.

Whether you should get Office 2013 or Office 365 depends on your need. Office 2013 is the next version of the Office suite we're all used to. Office 365 is subscription based and can be installed on up to five computers. It has more cloud services and will provide some syncing between the computers.

Office 2010 was the first version of Office to be offered as either 32-bit or 64-bit, previous versions were 32-bit, probably back to version 2000, maybe a bit earlier. I had FrontPage 2003 on my computer when I got the 64-bit version of Office 2010 and had to first remove FP due to incompatibility with 64-bit Office. You should have no issues with running 32-bit programs on 64-bit Windows but can't run 64-bit programs on 32-bit Windows. To change to 64-bit Office you'll need the disc or download for it and uninstall the 32-bit version first. I have heard of folks that were able to run both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Office but probably had to do a Custom Install to specify a different Folder one from the other. 32-bit Windows stores 32-bit programs in C:\Program Files but 64-bit Windows stores 64-bit programs in C:\Program Files and 32-bit programs in C:\Program Files (x86). [Change C: to whatever drive/partition your Windows may be on if different.]

A:Office 2013 will not install

Hi there
1) ensure any old / previous Office version is uninstalled - including any Demo / invasionware type of product.
2) Copy the contents of the DVD to disk - keep folders in same order
3) go to the relevant x86 / x64 folder (depending on whether you want to install the 32 or 64 bit version).
4) run the setup EXE file.

Step 2) might appear unnecessary but I've found in the past sometimes copying to HDD before install works whereas installing from DVD sometimes fails. Don't ask me why - I've had this with perfectly good DVD's and nothing wrong with the DVD writer either.

If not I will probably remove 2013 and go back to 2003.

alright guys I am in need of your opinion i have heard good things about both Office 2010 and 2013, but I am not sure which one is better, I can get both through my college, but I am just not sure which one would be best to use thanks guys i really appreciate it a lot

You better check into the fine points about the licensing terms.

Including these questions:

Can the product be installed on more than 1 PC at a time and are there any restrictions as to the type of PC: desktop, laptop, etc?

Is the product restricted to the first PC to which it is installed or can it be installed to any single PC in the future, without restrictions?

Do you get a factory-made retail disc or just a download of some type that must be burned to a disc?

Are there recurring fees, such as a monthly or annual charge? Or do you pay just once and never again?

It seems that Microsoft's goal in the long term is to drive everyone toward recurring fees, like a subscription that must be renewed for the software to continue to function. You can avoid that with Office 2010 if you buy the right type of license. I'm not sure about 2013.

And you need to understand which of the Office applications are included: Word, Excel, Access, Powerpoint, etc, etc. There are numerous packages with different names.

Functionally, you won't find major differences and can become accustomed to either.

I'd worry most about the licensing details.

I am sorting out a PC and software for a UK Registered Charity. They need Access so it means a professional version of Office. I am looking to save money where I can as it is a charity and have been offered the following:

Bit worried about the term "Dummy licence"!
Would disclose the company who are offering this via a PM if required.
Can anyone advise me on this please?

A:MS Office Professional Plus 2013

You will only need a full version of Access is you will need to edit/create forma, reports, etc. You can use the free Access runtime to "run" Access applications and enter data.

The only PC/Workstation that needs a Full version of Access is the one doing development for the application.

I have many users that run my Access applications with just the free Access runtime.

The color schemes in Outlook are horrible, I have the dark gray on and there is still way too much white.

I have MS Office Professional 2010 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, Access).  I needed to install MS Project 2013 for a class that I'm taking.
Long story short, I now cannot use my 2010 stuff.  The computer only recognizes 2013.  (Would have been nice if I had gotten a warning when I was installing)
How can I get back my 2010 stuff?  Do I have to re-install it?  If I do, are 2010 and 2013 compatible or incomparable?
Upgrading to 2013 for everything is neither desired nor an option right now.

This article: should help you in uninstalling Office 2013 and fixing Office 2010.
As for having two Windows office versions on your computer SAFELY, you would need a dual boot system, one office version for each booting partition.  You could create a third partition for all the files you save so you could easily access them from either booting partition.

I've recently installed MS Office 2013, but due to its uglyness, I'd rather work with MS Office 2010. So I tried to uninstall Office 2013 and everytime I click the uninstall button at the Control Panel, windows shuts down... Removing the files doesn't work either, I get the message that the file is already being used. Unlocking it with Lockhunter didn't work too.

So please help!

Hi buttercup12, Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You can purchase Office 2013 on line & download it as well. Have a look at this website & read through the various versions that are available.
Also is you follow through on the various "Learn More" links you can also find out what system requirements are needed.
As you are running Windows 7 you should be OK. But as your System Specs don't really show all your computers details you will need to check the Office system requirements to see if your computer meets them.

As I am in Australia I have tried to get the Microsoft USA details for you so I hope it works.

After the redstone update the audio had issues along with few minor other bugs. I ended up resetting the PC and fixing the audio issue but now it is the office installation which is causing a headache. I get the error app not supported or something similar. However the office desktop version in question is running fine on the other laptops on the same build and before the reset it was working just fine on the laptop. What gives??

Hello all: I purchased the MS Office 2013 Professional Plus using the Home Use Program and installed it with no problem. BUT I installed the 64 bit version on my Windows 7 Home computer(64 bit) and what I have been reading is that I should have installed the 32 bit version. Is there an 'EASY' way to convert the 64 bit version to a 32 bit version? One of the reasons I want to change is because the Service Pack 1 will not install on the 64 bit version even though I went to the Microsoft Download Center and selected the 64 bit version of the SP1 to download. Any help? Thanks to all who answer.


A:Office 2013 change 64 bit to 32 bit

Internally 32 bit and 64 bit applications are very different and there is no way to convert one to the other. You would have to uninstall the 64 bit version and than install the 32 bit version.

I have Visio 2010 64bit and just recieved office 2013 from work 32 bit. It will not allow me to install office while still having visio 64 bit installed. I got the visio from a collage website while in school and no longer have the key, it looks like when I try to open it, it is trying to install office all over again since I uninstalled office 2010. so, how can I keep this?

I've been using the Office 2013 Preview for about a month and just installed the Retail version (for eval purposes). So far, I'm really liking the suite and it reminds me of what Office was like before it became bloatware. Outlook 2013 is especially nice and it's easy to do what you want to do. No crazy things to learn over again... Anyone else using it?

A:Office 2013, any feedback yet? I like it so far...

I haven't gotten a chance to try it out yet , will install tomorrow and give it a run! Looks neat from what I've seen so far though online.
