Hi there, is anyone out there using office 2003, I have had lots of formatting problems as it seems to decide who will see what when they open up documents. I just wanted to pick someones brain who may be able to help me. cheers esl_webber
Hi VoG, I have 7 copies of it and on some machines it decides to show formatting, on one it has decided to show linkfields and this happens on shared documents stored on our network and without changing any settings, have you had any similar problems? cheers emily
Each individual user has Word set up a slightly different way. Tools > Options On one of the tabs you will see for example "show field shading" and a drop down box with the options always/never/when selected. These options can be changed individually to suit each person and all these settings are remembered (in general terms) by Word on that machine and are applied to all documents opened by that machine.
The revealed formatting is an icon on the main top taskbar and again can be toggled (switched on/off) by clicking the icon which looks like a musical note or a carriage return. It is usually next to the zoom percentage box.
I think that when you experiment with the settings on individual machines you will see what I mean. There are certain settings that always survive depending on how that document was closed down by the previous user. The page view (normal/print layout etc) and the zoom percentage are two examples.
