Re: Ms Word 2003 question

Hi,

I didn't understand your strategy for doing something in a form, as you 
describe it, but I'm not familiar with such tasks as I regularly use Word. 
So I'm glad you figured out something you can do that's satisfactory. And I 
don't know ho to position a cursor in a specific place on the screen in 
terms of coordinates. But as for revealing codes, here's a suggestion:

open the Options. Alt T, O. This is a multiple-tab dialogue. control tab and 
stop at the View page of the dialogue.

Now tab through the items, and you'll come to a number of options for 
revealing or hiding characters that may fulfilled your needs for revealing 
at leas some of the underlying codes. Check the appropriate boxes to toggle 
these items to the state you desire, and press OK to exit.

Hope this helps.

Thank you all.  The reason I was looking for the answer to this question is
that I am filling out a form that has the _ character and I wanted to use
the strikeover characters to keep the underline character there as well as
the character I am filling in.  I used to do this in WP.  Anyway, I just
fixed the form so that I replaced the _ characters with spaces and then
underlined them.  Now I can use the typeover mode and still have the
underline in place and the form field will remain about the same size.  I
have a couple of beefs with Word, and this might be one.  The other is that
in WP you used to be able to tell it to go to an exact coordinate on a page
and type there.  If that can be done in Word, I haven't found it.  It would
also be really nice to be able to reveal all the codes.  Anyway, that's my
rant!  Thanks for the help.  Linda

Linda,

This is one of those areas where Word and WordPerfect are different. In
Word you can indicate a number of international characters in two steps;
first you indicate the accent and then you indicate the character. To
get an N with a tilda over it, you press Control + tilde (on a UK
keyboard, that's Control + Shift + #), then press n.
Note that nothing seems to happen when you press the keys that denote
the accent, and you have to press the character within about 5 seconds
of indicating the accent.

JAWS also has a way of inserting accented characters; press Insert + 4
to get a list. You can use this in any edit area, not just Word.

Steve

Hi, I have a question.

When I was working a very long time ago (grin) I used Wordperfect.
There was a way to type two characters on top of each other.  I think it
was called "strikeover".  Does anyone know how to do this in MS Word?  I
have searched the help screens and find no answer.  I am of the opinion
that the help area in 2003 is worse instead of better than previous
versions.  I need to type an "n" with a tilda over it.  This trick can
come in handy every once in a while.  Thank you.  Linda
