    Fixed now. I replaced the missing shapes with new ones, and the new ones print. For some reason I never figured out, the original shapes weren't printing in any format -- I thought they originally...
  2. Visio writes WMF files with missing objects

    I'm preparing a presentation in PowerPoint, but I need some graphics that are beyond its capabilities, so I'm preparing the graphics in Visio 2013, writing them to image files, and inserting them...

    I finally got to the bottom of this: My laptop was set up with "My Documents" pointing to the "My Documents" folder in the "public" profile, rather than the one in my user account. When I synced from...

    Missing shapes in WMF output

    I'm preparing a presentation in PowerPoint, but I need some graphics that are beyond its capabilities, so I'm preparing the graphics in Visio 2013, writing them to picture files, and inserting them...

    Roland, one of us is missing something; your post doesn't make sense to me. I'm following a procedure prepared and published by Microsoft. If the copying step is something I can only do if Windows...

    I decided to rebuild my user profile first and worry about the "not a genuine copy of Windows" problem later, since it seemed to be essentially cosmetic. That turned out to be a good choice, because...

    I learned more about the problem this morning. The empty desktop affects only my customary log-in; I was able to log in to another account and get a normal desktop. I still get the "not a genuine...

    Suggestions for repairing a damaged OS?

    My computer runs Windows 7 Professional. When I start it, it boots up normally and prompts me to log in. When I do so, it loads an empty screen with no icons. A message in the lower right corner...

    I'll take a look at that. My days as a VBA wizard are far behind me, though, so it's not something I'll take to naturally.

    The dialog box is probably not the best point of attack. I'd like to...

    I agree, not the right tool for the job. I'm looking for a way to ease a difficult step in a routine process. Editing the registry would not do it.

    Apart from its drawbacks, I'm not sure it would...
  12. I think you do misunderstand, but it's not clear...

    I think you do misunderstand, but it's not clear to me how. I can think of about six reasons why Windows Explorer wouldn't solve the problem even if the Compare Documents dropdown linked to it, which...
  13. Compare Documents: how to clear the file section dropdowns?

    I can't find a way to do this so that when I try to run a compare, the dropdowns will list ONLY the files that are open.

    The people I work with tend to send me documents with long, complicated...

    Thank you, I'm trying SyncBack first, because it's a better fit for the way I work (if it works). If it bombs out too, I'll evaluate the Robocopy script.

    Three reasons come to mind:

    1. Security. Our IT department's security team does not like it when individual users decide that this or that cloud service is just as safe as the company's firewall....

    I don't think there's a lot to say, Paul. It's pretty simple.

    My employer issued me a desktop computer for use at work and a laptop computer for use at home. I want to use the same files on both,...

    Thank you, I'll take a look at that one. This is discouraging, though; FFS is the third or fourth sync tool I've tried, and every one has turned out to be unusable or unreliable. I'm starting to...
  18. Paul, I've been using FreeFileSync for several...

    Paul, I've been using FreeFileSync for several weeks now. In that time I've struggled to discipline my file sync habits so that everything works smoothly. But last week I got to the point where I...

    I've been mirroring files in each direction for a couple of weeks now, and it seems to be working well.

    One thing about FreeFileSync bothers me, though: the output of the "Compare" operation. I'd...

    I'm being careful -- so far I am making a backup of every directory before I sync it! But I'm not sure whether you mean "be careful using mirror" or "be careful using anything other than mirror."

    I've been using freefilesync for a few weeks now, but so far it isn't working out too well.

    I'm doing two-way syncs between my office computer and a transfer disk, and between the transfer disk...
  22. I've been using FreeFileSync for a few weeks now....

    I've been using FreeFileSync for a few weeks now. It's generally working well, but I've observed several instances where a file or directory deletion on one side was not propagated to the other side....

    JCZ, thank you for the suggestion. Since Paul has been helping me I want to see what he suggests before I make a decision, but I visited the FreeFileSync web site and saw that it has some nice...
  24. When I tried to sync one of my large folder...

    When I tried to sync one of my large folder pairs, SyncToy opened an error box that said:


    That doesn't make sense to me. Windows Explorer locates the folder just fine.

    I don't want to be...

    As long as I can do just a few files and change their names, I don't see any need for approval. Our timestamps are not confidential! :-)

    I don't think it will help to do this now, since I've made...
