    hacking normal.dot or (all )

    how do hackers mess with normal.dot?

    can't legitimate users fix normal.dot with VB or other means?

    my earlier message may not have been clear
    we need to change the DEFAULT font

    THE EASIEST WAY MAY BE TO SUE MS UNDER THE ADA LAW

    i would rather just hack it to get rid of the 10 pt times roman default
    and substitute courier 12

    PLEASE NOTE THAT DEFAULT IS NOT NORMAL
    AND NORMAL IS NOT DEFAULT
    NORMAL IS NOT THE PROBLEM
    we can change the normal font
    WE NEED TO CHANGE THE ***DEFAULT PARAGRAPH*** FONT

    Never saw your earlier message, and I read this board just about daily.

    See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/defaultfont.htm> How can I change the default font in Word?</A>.

    Normal.dot is easily "fixed," just as a stallion is easily "fixed." If you delete or rename it, Word will automatically generate a new, fresh, one. One problem is that Word stores oodles of user customizations like AutoText and macros in normal.dot by default. Clean it out, and you clean out all your customizations. The solution for this is to store those somewhere else. See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.addbalance.com/word/movetotemplate.htm> Saving / Copying / Moving / Sharing Customizations like Macros, AutoText, AutoCorrect, Toolbars, and Keyboard reassignments in Word</A> for how to do that.

    A second problem is that a well-written virus (is that an oxymoron?) will store itself outside of normal.dot as well as in normal.dot and reinfect normal.dot ASAP. That is what anti-virus software is for.

    Anyway, hope you've got the help you were looking for. As for the rest, well... life ain't fair... and neither is Microsoft.

    Did you see the answer I posted to your previous post over <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=wrd&Number=89741&page=0 &view=collapsed&sb=5&o=0&vc=1#Post89741>here</A>. The "default paragraph font" IS the font of the underlying paragraph. It is only TNR 10 point out of the box.
