    Documento map (2003)

    Dear Loungers:

    When I am using the Document Map feature, many of the sentences shown in the Document Map get cut off at the right because they are too long for the map. That's okay, because at least I can see the beginning of each sentence within the document map.

    But every now and then, when I am moving around in a document, the Document Map suddenly aligns to the right, so that I can only see the right portion of each sentence within the Document Map and the beginning of each sentece (the most important part) gets cut off. So I have to manually adjust the view so that the beginning of each sentence shows once again.

    Does anyone know if that feature can be turned off so that the Document Map ALWAYS shows the beginning of each sentence and cuts them off at the end?

    Thank you for any help that can be offered,

    JMT

    In my opinion, Document Map should be avoided like the plague, because it alters the outline level of paragraphs without asking for permission and without telling you about it.

    Is the Document Map style set to "Automatically update"? If so, does turning this off help?

    Hello Hans, I didn't even know that Document Map had a style. How do I access it and how do I change it? There was no "Document Map" style in the Styles and Formatting Dialogue Box.

    KInd regards,

    It should be listed there in the styles and Formatting Dialog. Ensure that you are viewing All Styles, not just styles for the current document. Once you find it, use the drop arrow and switch it into modify mode and then check to see if the Automatically Update option is switched off.

    Re: Documento map (2003)

    That's most odd; I have my Syles and Formatting box set to Show "All styles," but the styles jump from "date" to "E-mail Signature" with no "Document Map" in between. Is it possible it has another name?

    Select Custom... from the dropdown list at the bottom of the task pane.
    Tick the check box for Document Map and click OK.
    Document Map will then be listed in "All Styles".

    Re: Documento map (2003)

    Now it's showing up, but it is indicating that I do not have "automatically update" selected for the document map.

    Does anybody have any other ideas?

    Don't use Document Map? <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Documento map (2003)

    Well, I have thought about that, but I, being a visual person, like to have the outline of the documen there on the same screen so that I can quickly orient myself and figure out where I am. It's also helpful that any level can be collapsed or expanded immediately, whereas the whole TOC would to be redone to see such a map.
