[bksvol-discuss] Re: question

Hi, Lori, you've got one on me. What is this Show All feature and how do I
turn it on and off? Yes, you guessed it, I've never heard of this. Anyhow,
I've written to Carrie Karnos and she probably can guess I'm bewildered. Of
course that's not particularly surprising to me. Word has a menu that talks
about permissions and so forth which I know nothing about or what it means.
Regards but puzzled, Kim.

Opening the file in Wordpad may remove the weird style, but I'm not sure
about the weird pagination.  Even so, it's worth a try.
Normal view is always better for proofreading as it identifies the page
breaks.
Have you tried turning on the show all feature? Sometimes that is helpful.
If all else fails, you can submit the book with a note indicating what work
needs to be done and ask Carrie to put it back on step one--or back in the
check out list.  That way all of your work won't be lost and someone might
be able to solve the remaining problems.
Just random thoughts.
Lori
