    Text Appears (2003)

    I have a co-worker who claims that text---perhaps a single paragraph---which was not visible when a file was saved, will appear at a later date when the same file is opened again. She says that this can happen anywhere, and it is not related to "hidden" text or autoformatting.

    Has this been seen by others?

    Thanks,

    Jerry

    Have you checked whether Track Changes is turned on in the document?

    It is turned on, but again she insists that is not the problem.

    Without seeing the document it's impossible to know what has happened.

    Is this extraneous text that doesn't belong, or is it text that should have been visible, but wasn't until the file was closed and re-opened?

    Text that should have been visible.

    I don't know the cause, but I have seen the phenomenon occasionally. I can usually make the missing text appear by paging up and down a few pages, or by changing the view from print view, where I normally work, to normal & back again.

    It could be a video problem. Let her try the following:
    - Open the Display Properties control panel (for example by right-clicking an empty part of the desktop and selecting Properties from the popup menu).
    - Activate the Settings tab.
    - Click Advanced...
    - Activate the Troubleshoot tab.
    - Drag the Hardware Acceleration slider one or two notches to the left.
    - Click OK.
    - Now test if the problem is gone.
    - If it hasn't helped, restore the original setting.

    Thanks. That was my advise to her as well.
