My mate has a problem, she's filling in an application form that seems as if it's not been made properly. She just saw the job and downloaded the form yesterday in the library and has been working on trying to fix the form but she can't figure it out. The deadline is tomorrow, so she's in a bit of a panic.
When she enters text into a box, for instance the address box, it all dissapears to the left. The only way she can make it viewable is to right align it, but as you can imagine that doesn't look very professional. It seems as if the text area is going way off the page to the left.
She's tried to sort ou the tab stops and alignment herself but it's not helping. I've told her to just type it all out right aligned for now and i'll see if can get some help.
If this is an internet sendable form then when it's received their text bordering will be in the right place on their master document and the data sent will normally, only be the data boxes and not the document. However if you need to paste the document into an e-mail then thats different and I'm not sure how to get round that one.
If it is a Form, if she goes to Tools/Options, View tab and under Formatting tick "All" then she should see something similar to ooooo in each box where she is supposed to enter information. If it is a Form, there may be restrictions on what formatting can be applied.
If it is a "standard" table she could use Table/Table to Text to convert it and see if that works.
Personally I would make do with the right alignment.
