    After numerous unsolicited and failed Win 10 updates on two laptops, the Win 7 installations became so corrupted both had to be reinstalled from scratch. Just logging on was taking up to 10mins with...

    If you ring the MS activation centre, they should be able to validate it for you with the new hardware.

    There is no particular relationship between a Windows 10 upgrade and an Office licence. As part of its activation controls, however, Office tests the hardware on which it is installed. The fact you...

    Perhaps you could explain what you mean here - document protection and 'track changes' aren't related.

    As for the track-changes bars against the hyperlinks, that's due to the fields updating,...

    Hmm, an undocumented switch, it seems. As I don't have Office 2013, I can't test whether it works there on a PC other that the OP's but, if it doesn't, that may be because it's been deprecated -...

    There is no command line switch to open the most recently-opened file, per se.

    According to MS, the '/m file_name' switch opens a designated file that appears on the MRU. That may or may not be...

    The dots you describe are most likely tab-leader dots, created via Paragraph>Tabs. If some Table of Contents lines have them and others don't, that suggests the TOC Styles have different formatting...

    The reason you're 'not getting it' is that you're wedded to doing something in a way that we keep telling you is fundamentally flawed. The fact you've managed to use Word as long as you have without...

    This whole discussion suggests you've never learnt to use Word. Just about everything in a Word document is based on Styles and creating/modifying Styles with the desired attributes is a trivial...

    Please read post #9 again. There I have already provided you with code to add a Style, without you having to add it manually. Have you ever run that code? Your subsequent posts suggest not, otherwise...

    I already provided you with code to do exactly that in my last post. Did you read it?

    A space between which numbers? A multilevel list can contain whatever text you like between the list-level numbers, including spaces. You can also have text before the first number in the list and...

    As I have told you twice now, you need to use Style names that actually exist in your document (or its template); it's hardly surprising, therefore that you get an error when you try to tell Word to...

    There's a long-standing bug in Word that means a Find/Replace won't replace Section breaks followed by a table. Similarly, a Find/Replace for content that ends with paragraph breaks won't find...

    Your problem suggests you should be using a Directory/Catalog merge but you're using a Letter merge. Changing to the correct type will eliminate the Section breaks. Even so, you'll still have...

    I already gave you exactly the code you need for assigning Styles, except for the actual names, so I don't understand why you'd think you need to code it differently. The fact your test macro didn't...

    To use formfields, the document must have 'filling in forms' protection applied. If you do that and insert:
    FmFld.CalculateOnExit = True
    after:
    FmFld.Result = StrTxt
    You shouldn't need to...

    By default, textboxes are initialized with Word's Normal Style. Presumably, then, the Normal Style in your document uses 12pt TNR. To get 11pt Calibri, you could insert:
    .Font.Name = "Calibri"

    It's possible to use a macro do such clean-up work. See, for example: http://www.msofficeforums.com/word/12371-how-release-hard-returns.html#post32907 . Although you refer to 'softbreaks', I take it...

    Links to objects embedded in documents are, to say the best, problematic - they break when you change the document name, move it to a different folder or drive, etc., etc. This means, of course, that...

    To update the paths of LINK fields pointing to content in embedded objects, you'll need to work through the Edit Links dialogue; the macro wasn't written to cater for those.
