[vicsireland] Re: Word selection prob

maureen,

In Microsoft Word, when you get to Tools Option, ctrl+tab to the Edit tab 
control.  Now, tab into this diallogue and look at the various options. 
About ten tab presses in, there's "automatically select entire word" 
(checkbox checked), or should be checked.  When I unchecked it, it did not 
stop my ability to select words, however.

Also, note:  you can access the "What's this?" Help for each option, by 
activating shift+F1, to learn more about what it does.  (This particular 
doesn't work in later office versions.)  When you have read this help and 
press escape, you're returned to the OK button; so you need to tab or 
back-tab to where you were if you want to pursue those tabs.

Flor, I did nothing out of the ordinary that I know.  I did put a favorites 
shortcut on  desktop.  All features you asked about seem o.k. although it is 
difficult to know with the underline and emboldent features, not being able 
to highlight the word.  If I put on the underline or emboldent at beginning 
of word and arrow down to end of that word it works alright. Otherwise, F8 
and ctrl and down arrow are both working.
Sleep on it, you might get inspiration during the night! Come on all you 
teckys, give Flor a dig out on this one!
Maureen.

  Right.  So there's nothing 'fatally wrong'.  Did you re-assign any keys
  recently?  use any fomplex Excel functionalities?  Can you press ctrl+e 
and
  get Centred text; ctrl+l and get left Aligned, Ctrl+b for Bold, ctrl+u for
  Underlined, etc.?  And if (In Microsoft word, of course here) you press
  ctrlk-down-arrow, does JAWS read by paragraph.  Does something happen (for
  example) if you press the control plus shift keys a few times in
  successsion?  You see there are still a number of possibilities... so to
  narrow it all down you will have to *keep* your own hat on!, if you want 
to
  solve this problem!  (By default, the 'keyboard switching' key is 
alt-shift
  (or at least it is on my keyboard.   You might have changed that to
  control-shift accidentally perhaps.)  Did you?  Is mouse selection of a 
word
  working properly?  Do you know that the F8 key is also a selection key, 
and
  does that work with ctrl, and ctrl and shift?

  You could look in Tools Options - alt+t o.  In the General Tab control, be
  sure that both checkboxes for WordPerfect users are unchecked.  Next 
there's
  the Edit tab to look into, though nothing there in particular springs out 
at
  me from your description of the problem so far.  I should add that I'm 
using
  office 2002, next up from 2000.  Perhaps somebody else has the 
Quicksilver?

  Hi Flor, yes, the control key works when selecting a word in both notepad
  and wordpad.
  Maureen.

    Outside of Microsoft Office?  Outside of Microsoft word?  Does your ctrl
  key
    work when selecting, copying/cutting/pasting text in, say, Notepad, or
    WordPad?

  again!

      have you rebooted your computer since this problem manifested?  If 
not,
      reboot ASAP and your ctrl key may well start to work as intended.

      Hello Vicsonians, I am using XP Pro with Office 2000 and find that 
when
  I
    go
      to select a word JAWS just says "selected but does not say the word 
and
  on
      copying word or words, as the case may be, JAWS then tells me "nothing
      selected".  Selection line by line or letter by letter seems fine. 
Can
      anybody help?

      Maureen."
