Yes, that sort of formatting sounds like what can happen when your OCR software is set to interpret what it has scanned, when in fact you really just need the plain text for applying styles. A long time ago on a Windows system, we had to recover an electronic document from the sole remaining printed copy that we had. The software had a marquee feature, ...

When using lineart, logos, etc from a vector file (not too complex), it is possible to use vector graphics in Powerpoint. Enlarge it 400% in illustrator and export it as a .WMF file. This allso works for other office applications.

Actually I solved the problem by realizing that Powerpoint is really bad in compressing photos. I tried to insert a 20MB jpeg and it looked awful in my Powerpoint Mac 2011. I solved it by adjusting the resolution with Photoshop and then pasted it - the results are a huge improvement!

I've had the same problem using the 2015 Outlook preview on a Mac. Quitting (using the shift alt delete equivalent) and restarting the programme gets the ribbon back every time for me.

Thank you for this question and the answer. The fix for me too was to go in to Word's Tools drop-down and choose "Language", and change it from French, to English U.S. First though, it seemed necessary to highlight all of the text (via [Command + A] on the Mac + A), then to change it all from French to English.

Unfortunately, after trudging through the multitude of comments on the MS Office Blog page requesting the same missing feature, and checking every option in the current version of the Outlook iOS app with a fine tooth comb, it seems this "feature" is still not available for Outlook.com accounts in the Outlook iOS app!

Mac OS X 10.6 and the hardware it runs on is too new to run Office 2001. Office 2001 required Mac OS 8, 9 or Classic. To run Classic under OS X, you need a Power PC based Mac, and up to Mac OS X version 10.4. Your options: run Office 2001 in SheepShaver which emulates Mac OS 9 on a current Mac. This is a bit tricky to setup. You need a copy of OS 9, a ...

Office 2001 isn't designed to run natively on OS X. It needs either OS 9 or some form of translation software. Apple used to provide this in the form of Rosetta, which was part of the OS X operating system until OS X 10.6 in 2009. It used to be available as an additional download by launching the App Store, or by installing it from the 'Extras' folder on ...

Preview app on 10.6.8 doesn't let you extract images except by selecting then copying and creating a new file from clipboard. Another way is using the free unix xpdf tools. They come with a utility called pdfimages. I just used it on a PDF and it perfectly extracted the images from the file. For example... pdfimages -f 2 -l 2 -j 27487.pdf testname It ...

I fixed my issue by searching for the email thread in my trash and sent items. Deleted all instances and the error went away. My issue was in Outlook 2014, but I've had the same issue in 2011 before too.

I am fairly "late to the game", but since no answer has been accepted yet, my input might still be useful: the "meeting highjacking" you describe in your question is fairly well known with Exchange and the iOS calendar app; in fact it can be even worse where simply accepting an invite on your phone may make you the "owner" of the meeting; this seems to ...

I had this same problem. I tried all the various suggestions--including those that clearly did not apply to me--and nothing worked. I was literally going to return this MacBook Pro...then I notice a note about copying and pasting the whole document into a new black document and it worked! My starting point was a ~500 page Word 2003 document from a PC. I had ...

When you say Excel freezes is there a chance that it is just trying to do what you are asking but taking a really long time? Excel is quite bad about giving feedback; it can be working away furiously doing something but the UI just appears to have frozen. Check Activity Monitor, does Excel appear to be using a large amount of CPU? If you run something like ...

The Escape key unmaximizes Excel. Another way is to push the mouse cursor to the top edge of the screen. The menu bar would appear. A blue unmaximize button will appear in the top right corner. Finally, you can use Control-Command-F. That should work with all programs, not just Excel.
