    Ok. What you want is for Word NOT to create a numbered list if you do that.

    In that case, go into the Word options, look for AutoCorrect, and look at the Autoformat As you Type tab or section. ...
  2. Yes, I put the Document Properties command on the...

    Yes, I put the Document Properties command on the QAT - but it only gives access to the standard properties, not the custom properties which is what I need.

    I'll go investigate the content control...
  3. After more research, I've decided to use this...

    After more research, I've decided to use this inelegant approach:

    Sub InsertADocPropertyField()
    SendKeys "{d 3}"
    Dialogs(wdDialogInsertField).Show
    End Sub

    Since it doesn't have to run...
  4. I use a lot of document properties in my...

    I use a lot of document properties in my documents, as the official titles of things change a lot and so does the terminology.

    This means I need to insert docproperty fields often. I could write...

    Thanks. I knew there had to be something better than my brute force slogging available, but not where to look.

    As you can guess, I don't program much these days and learned years ago in a...

    Thank you; I'll try this out for the next long poem I work on.

    I ended up doing an amateurish macro which applies the line numbers in the format required to the selection. Have to select each...

    I need to create text files with a hardcoded number every five lines (to help students find their way as they discuss long poems such as Paradise Lost and the Faerie Queene). I realize that I can...

    Re: Change comment scope (Word 2003)

    Thanks. I always forget about the Object Browser.

    Recreating the comment resets the date to the present one, of course. I've got the alternate method working. They have to select the new...

    Change comment scope (Word 2003)

    I'm looking for a way to change the scope of an existing comment using a macro. I've fiddled with the scope property of the comment, but it seems not to respond to setRange or changing the start and...
  10. Re: detect text that has been deleted (Word 2003)

    Thanks. I searched but didn't find the Revisions property.
  11. detect text that has been deleted (Word 2003)

    I'm writing a macro that finds all instances of some text, then deletes the entire row containing it. I'd like to detect whether the selection or the range that is found has already been deleted.
    ...
  12. Re: Extending selection in Word (VBA, Word 2003)

    Got it - it never occurred to me that Word would relate the selection to the position within the long string of characters that makes up each story. Obvious in retrospect of course.

    Thanks yet...
  13. Re: Word breaks table rows on hard line breaks (Word 2003)

    Thanks for confirming. I replace with "HardReturnXXX" in case I'm doing more than one replacement activity in a single document massaging session.
  14. Re: Extending selection in Word (VBA, Word 2003)

    Thanks - of course this makes sense, but I am not sure what format the start and end positions get stored in. The Word object model is so convoluted.

    Can you point me to an example of how the...
  15. Re: Word breaks table rows on hard line breaks (Word 2003)

    Sorry to be so confusing. I want to start a new row on the paragraph break (Enter, I guess - shows as a pilcrow) but NOT on the manual line break (shift-enter).

    For the moment I am doing a text...
  16. Extending selection in Word (VBA, Word 2003)

    I'm working on a macro to convert text chunks into tables. The text chunks look something like this:

    Subject: EHS_Remote

    Description: The remote should indicate to the user if the batteries...
  17. Word breaks table rows on hard line breaks (Word 2003)

    Good morning.

    I've got a document where I need to convert many text chunks into tables. These text chunks are irregular in format. In particular, the chunk of text that should turn into a...
  18. Re: Replace Refs to bookmark with Refs to doc property (Word 2003)

    Thanks. Who would have thought something so direct and simple would work?

    The only catch is the cases where I inserted the REF fields as hyperlinks. The /h after the bookmark name doesn't make...
  19. Replace Refs to bookmark with Refs to doc property (Word 2003)

    I need to replace a bunch of bookmarks with custom document properties, so users can update the reusable text bits more easily and reliably without using macros. They kept deleting the bookmarks.

  20. Re: Detect text with character styles applied (Word 2003)

    Thanks, Stuart. And sorry about asking the same question in two places. My bad.
  21. Re: Detect text with character styles applied (Word 2003)

    Right - I do want to find deviations that are NOT part of character styles; it's okay for my authors to apply character styles, but not okay for them to do direct manual formatting.

    So when I do...
  22. Re: Detect text with character styles applied (Word 2003)

    Hmm. I'm trying to find manual formatting in the doc. So if I find a paragraph in my main loop that looks for formatting in a paragraph that doesn't match the official paragraph style for that...
  23. Detect text with character styles applied (Word 2003)

    I'm looking for a way to detect whether a paragraph has a character style (not direct formatting, an actual defined character style) applied to it. I'm actually looking to find all instances where...

    Re: VBA DirectFormat Style (Word XP)

    Actually, there is a problem. It seems to ignore things that have character styles applied. We have a character style we use for little chunks of text that refer to items on the screen and...

    Re: VBA DirectFormat Style (Word XP)

    Works well! All I had to add something that skipped those dumb end-of-table-row paragraphs, as they don't have a comments property. Thanks again to Andrew Savikas for his quick end-of-row-check...
