    "Rename" is Flashing Neon Sign (2000 (no SR))

    When try to rename (or correct name) of a .DOC file, current name flashes like neon sign and cannot see cursor when placed on that name. Only choice is to delete name and start over.
    Is there a fix for this?

    I am not sure I have understood what your problem is. Could you explain again in other words?

    RAJESH: Thanx for replying to my post. To clarify:
    -- I want to rename file in Word 2000.
    -- I click OPEN, then right-click filename.
    -- On drop-down menu, click RENAME
    -- And - BAM - filename starts flashing like neon sign and cursor disappears when moved to flashing filename.

    Alternatively, go to OPEN, click on filename, click on drop-down menu that also shows RENAME. And same weird effect occurs.

    It's not just my computer -- I've seen this on two other machines running Word 2K (and Win Me).

    Hope you can help resolve this.

    Try this:

    Go to your Windows Display Properties (right-click on an empty spot on the desktop, select Properties). Click the "Appearance" tab, and change the colors of "Selected Items" to something else. Pick something significantly different from what you currently have.

    Now go back into Word and try renaming your file again. Any difference?

    Also, do you have the same issue when you try to rename a file in Windows Explorer?

    Hope this helps!

    HI!
    Thanks for answering my distress signal. Changing appearance doesn't affect problem.

    And same issue does not exist in Windows Explorer.

    BTW, as stated earlier, I have seen this phenomenon on two other PCs running Word 2000 (and Win Me).

    Hmmm...the only other suggestion I can think of would be to try changing your choice of mouse pointers and see if that makes any difference. Are you using animated mouse pointers by any chance? Maybe try a set that isn't animated and see if that helps.

    I haven't been able to duplicate your problem on my system. I'm sorry, I'm stumped!
