Want to resize Word document on Office 2007

Question: Want to resize Word document on Office 2007

I have Office 2007 and I downloaded a 2010 calender template. It's just about what I need and fills up the page nicely, however I've noticed that there is room to stretch the calender on the page. Trouble is I can't figure out how to do that! The little grabber thingy on the top left of each month allows you to pull it but not re-size it. How can I do that to take advantage of every single area of space on the page?

I have found that when I run word 2007 or any other office 2007 program and go to the open a file icon, you then get the open file window that has all of my word documents. Since I saved them with thumbnails, there is a thumbnail of each document saved. Now here comes the problem; over on the right there is the preview pane and when you click on a file for preview, I get the error message: "This file can't be previewed because of an error in the Microsoft Office Word previewer". Of course I have googled this problem, but I haven't found much info other that to run the program with the /a on the end of the desktop short cut which turns off many of Words add-ins and other things that I really don't know about. Yes when you run it in this mode, the preview handler does work as it should. Does know the cause of this behavior and have a solution?

Answer:Office 2007 Open Word Document Window

Since running the program with the /a locks out plug-ins and such, I should of known that a plug-in was causing the problem. I disabled Adobe plug-in and it now works. How about that.

Hi,

I need help with word 2007. When I open my document (.doc format), word automatically reformats it during loading. After this, I see a lots of garbage in the contents list. This garbage are in fact lines from my document. In the document they look just like other text, but they appear in the list. When I update the style of these lines (for example it uses normal and I just click on normal style), they disappears from the list. I save the document but next time word reformats it again and I have the exactly the same garbage in the contents list. I realized I can stop the formmating during document open by ESC, which at least does not corrupt the document again, but how do I repair the document permanently?

What is wrong with my document? How do I repair my document?

In Word 2007, go to Office button > Word Options > Proofing > AutoCorrect
Options > AutoFormat As You Type tab, and check the box for "Internet and

I have been using Word and “Microsoft office 2007 - Document Imaging” for doing OCR and passing text to WORD. Recently it has been doing something very strange. When I try to send the OCR’d text to WORD (“Send text to Word”), WORD gives an error message:
“Server Busy. This action cannot be completed because the ‘document 1 - Microsoft Word’ program is not responding. …”
If I can minimize the empty Word document window, a small dialog box appears asking me “Do you want to convert from
[list of file formats] to WORD?” If I select HTML, The text finally appears in Word. Sometimes the Word/Document Imaging programs hang up completely and I have to go to “Task Manager” to get out of the predicament.
I have un-installed and re-installed “Microsoft Office 2007” with no success in solving the problem.
Can anyone tell me what is going on? How can I go directly to Word instead of having to convert from HTML? How did it get to HTML in the first place?

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Answer:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

Hello all,

On the 12th October I was editing a Word 2007 document on my Vista Home laptop. Throughout editing I pressed Ctrl S to save the doc over the previous version. I copied data in from several other files.
I went back yesterday to edit the document again and it has disappeared. The only version of the doc is a previous version dated 21st Sept.
I searched on all files modified after 11th Oct just in case I had saved it under another name. Not in there. The files I copied data from did come up in the search results though, soi knwo the search function is working.
I checked the default Autosave location - not in there.
I checked the recycle bin - the doc is not in there and neither are any ~ files or autosaved files. I haven't emptied my recycle bin for months.
I cannot find a word doc modified afetr the 11th October.

Can it really just have disappeared? It is my MBA dissertation paper and I worked on this edit for an awful lot of hours.

Many thanks.

I have a document that was created in Office 2003 and had document protection enabled. When I try and open it in Office 2007 the protected document settings indicate that there are no restrictions yet I am unable to edit the document. Does anyone know how to disable the document protection from within Office 2007.

There are many of these documents that were created in Office 2003 so setting up an office 2003 machine would be very impractical for the random times I happen upon these documents.
 

Answer:Protected Document Office 2007

This might be a ridiculous response, but here goes. What if you were able to save the document as the new Office 2007 format, and then resave it back to the Office 2003 format? Would the protection follow?

I just started using office 2007 and I am having a problem with a document created in word 2000. I have a document that has form fields that when I use it I tab through the various form fields filling out the information and when done with that I un-protect the document (previously I had put a "protect form" button in the tool bar).

I'm working on a Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server. We have 9 users in our office connect to this server to do everything they need to do. All users are having the same problem. There were some documents that got saved to the auto-recovery (this was several months ago). Since that time, every time we open a word doc, it shows the auto-recovery list on the left. when we close Word it asks:
"The document recovery task pane contains some recoverd files that have not been opened. Would you like to view these files the next time you start Word?"
Yes, I want to view these files OR
No, remove the files, I have saved the files I need.

We click NO to remove the files, hit OK and it tells us it "can't delete the file, can't read from the source file or disk.". then we have to click OK 6 times for each file that is in the auto-recovery pane on the left.

Any idea how to make this go away??

I believe that the document properties in Word 2007 (especially author) is being picked up from the login name in windows XP. I know how to change the document properties on a single document, however, I would like to know how to change the document properties for WORD -- period. In other words, I don't want my login name to be the author, I want my REAL name to be the author. Also, my company name is NOT in my login info, so there is no company coming up, I would like to change these properties so that everytime I start a document it's already there. So far everytime I change the properties, then close the document and start a new one, it goes back to the original. (I assume this problem is being perpetrated throughout the Office Suite...)

Is this an option?

I am trying to compile an index for my collected travelogues. My intention is to have the Main Entry contain the name of a country and the Sub Entry contain a place in that country (eg England/Canterbury). From what I can determine it doesn't seem possible to set a default Main Entry (eg England) and then mark sub-entries (eg Canterbury) so that each time I mark an entry it automatically becomes a sub-entry of the main entry. It seems to me (and I'm probably wrong) that compiling an index for a 124 page document will be very time consuming as I will have to manually enter the main entry and sub-entry each time I want an item to appear as a sub-entry of a main entry.

Does my post make sense? A summary of what I want is:

MAIN ENTRY: England (default so I don't have to keep typing it in)
SUB-ENTRY: Canterbury (entered by Word when I mark it)

I compiled an index for another document some time ago in the same style but can't remember what I did.

I'm in a bit of a muddle with a file. I run a Packard Bell computer with Windows 7 64 bit. I created a novel with word 2007, complete with an index. All seemed well until I wanted to change it in prep for making into an eBook. I removed the index marks and converted it to .doc format, and since then every time I do anything to the work it wont save it except as a new file in a new name. Then I can't delete the old file as it says it is still open (which it isn't). I can't change the name of it or move it or put it in a separate folder or anything. So now I have about six or seven of these frozen files scattered on my computer, getting confused as to which one is the most up to date, and I'm a bit worried that when I send one off for converting to eBook it might be rejected for being corrupted. I tried using an unlocker, and it said it had worked but the files are still frozen just the same. Help!!!

Answer:Word 2007 document frozen

Sounnds like you may be leaving temporary files around when the documents are saved/closed. Have a look in the folder where you document is stored for files with odd names starting with ~. These may be causing the problems.
For safety's sake do back everything up before deleting anything.
Hope this helps, but at least it will bring your post back to the top of the list and someone else might be able to give better advice.

The "From Scanner or Camera" option for scanning documents and pictures is not available in Microsoft Office Word 2007. Instead, you can use your scanner to scan the document, and then you can save the file to your computer.
After you scan the document, you can use Microsoft Office Document Imaging to create a version of the document that you can edit.

Hi there

My appoligies if there is already a thread on this topic, but I have tried to go through everything and have not picked anything up. My problem:

I have designed a letterhead layout for one of my clients in Microsoft Word 2007(there is an image inserted into the top of the document, then I have inserted text boxes containing contact details etc), now when the client opens the letterhead, she only sees the the image, the text boxes are gone???

Now she has just sent me an email explaining her problem, but when I open the attachment I see the text boxes with their content and everything else. Are we going crazy here? The ONLY thing I can think of, that would cause this problem, is that I am using Office 2007 and she is using and older version, but what boggles my mind here, is that I have saved the document as "Word 97-2003 document" and my client still can't see the text boxes (only the image header). Am I doing something wrong here? Is there something need to install?

I am using Windows XP, Professional, version 2002 (Service Pack 3) with Microsoft Office 2007, my client says she is also using XP 2002, but with Microsoft Office 2003.

Anyone's assistance here would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:How to remove formatting from a Ms Word 2007 document

I'm not sure this is the best way to do this but you can make your changes such as tabs, borders, fonts etc and "save as" a template. Next time you run word you can click "New" and select "My Templates" and open the one you saved. I just looked into it and a better way to do this would be to make the changes you want to be the usual settings and then select the little arrow at the lower right hand corner of the "Page Setup" tab. Here you can select "Default" which will open a window that asks "Do you want to change the default settings for page setup" which is what I think you are trying to do.

Anyhow I have managed to copy these over into a folder but the problem I have is that the name of the document is not on the actual document so when these are printed out an passed over to a third party to look at and change it looks like i am going to have to write the name of the document onto each one.

Is there a way of automatically inserting the name of document into the actual document (the footer maybe) without having to open them up?

thanks

I normally have my document in the center at 100% view while typing. However, it now wants to shift the paper I am working to the far left rather than the center at 100% view. When I click page width view, it takes it to the center again but if I try and zoom out back to 100%, it shifts it to the left again. Anyone know how to fix this?

Answer:Microsoft word 2007 document view

Looks like you need to change the View settings from Reading Layout to whatever you want: Normal, Web, Print, or Outline will switch it back to the 'single page' layout.

Hello,

        Is your issue occurring only for a specific single file, or a few files, or are you getting it no matter what Word document you try to open?

I'm going to tell the whole story incase the answer is somewhere lost in one of the steps I took. I'm writing a paper for school and it needs to be on Word 2007. I have two accesses to this type of Microsoft Word. At my boyfriend's house and at school. I started it at my boyfriends house and didn't have my flash drive, so I e-mailed it as an attatchment to my yahoo e-mail. When I was at school, I opened it and worked on it again. I saved it. Later still at school, I opened it, worked on it again and saved it. As I was saving it I realized that the one I had originally opened from my boyfriend's house was the file extention .docx and the file extention my school uses, even though they both are Microsoft Word 2007, was .doc. So I saved it twice just incase one file wouldn't open. When I got to my boyfriends house, I opened the .doc file. It came up and I finished my paper. Throughout working on it, I randomly and continually clicked the "save" button. Not the "save as". When I was finally finished, I went to upload it onto the internet to turn it in like I always do, and I couldn't find it. I of course closed the program before I realized I couldn't find it, so I couldn't try to resave it as something else. I know I saved it more than once. I looked everywhere I can possibly think of!!

I have MS Word 2007 and the one thing I hate about it is it's default document settings. These are the settings that are applied when I open a new document in MS Word. Exactly what I dislike is the line spacing. It is always set to 1.15 and there is also a new setting I've never seen in a MS word application. It is simply stated as After and is measured by a pt value. This setting is always at 12 and I want it to be 0.If anybody knows how to keep these settings permanent please give me a heads up.

Need help trying to save a word 2007 document. Am running Windows Vista. I have been working on this document for the past couple of days, a high school maths investigation with lots of equations and graphs copied over from 'Autograph' a 3d graphing software. I have been able to save it with ease with all this stuff on it until an hour ago. When I press CTRL+S it opens up the save as box (even though i've already saved it before). Then when i press save in this dialog box the box closes for a half a second before opening again without me pressing anything. I do it again and again and notice the little loading bar that tells you it's saving in the bottom right hand corner of the document gets stuck and then stops when the box opens up again. I've tried to rename it and this doesn't work. i copied it into an old word document and then saved that document and that document wouldn't save either. i got rid of it off that document and the old document saved perfectly. I closed it just to check it was actually not saving and it isn't. Is there something wrong with my document? or is it word? please help!

So I am officially desperate! I worked on a project in Microsoft Word 2007. I then went to go open it the next day and all of the text was completely gone!! I am only a beginner when it comes to computers so I have absolutely no idea what happened.
To better understand the problem here were the chain of events:
I worked on 2 documents, saved them in a folder, and then closed MSWord
I then worked on them the next day not realizing that for some reason they were opened as "Read Only"
Seeing that, I copied the the text and saved them in new documents
I went to Documents and attempted to move the new documents into the folder with the originals but an error message reading something like "this action cannot be completed because the file is open in another program" when the file was NOT open
In my frustration I attempted to move it over and over again to no avail
I gave up and closed the Documents folder and turned off my computer

the files were still there but the all of text was completely gone!

Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to get Word 2007 to select a different default dictionary based on the current document? If I open a personal letter, for example, I want to use my personal dictionary as default, so that when I right-click to add a word, it goes in there; if, however, I am writing a technical document, I want a right-click to add to my work-related dictionary. I know I can change the default by going into options, but it is difficult to remember each time I open a document.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

From time to time, when I open a Word document, it is opened read only. I have no idea why this happens. It is fairly infrequent (3-4 times a month) and seems random.
 
The problem is that I don't notice that it's read only, so I go about merrily on editing the document. When I try to save it, I get the Save As dialog. In  then have to save it under a different name, delete the old copy, and rename the new one. In addition to a royal pain, it screws up my archive log.
 
Is there a way that I can have Word warn me whenever a document is opened read only?

If ThisDocument.ReadOnly = False Then Exit Sub
MsgBox "This document is read only."
'UserForm1.Show
End Sub

I saved it in a Normal code module and set a breakpoint. It does get executed every time a document is opened, but the readonly test is always False, even when the document has the Read Only flag set and the title bar clearly says "(Read Only)".
 
Is there a way to modify this macro so that the MsgBox statement will execute when a document is opened read only?

Answer:Office XP Word slow to open first document

What is the brand and model of computer, and how much memory do you have?
There is a Microsoft Update for Office 2002 and XP that you should install if not already done.
First, I would run the free CCleaner, then consider others to remove congestion. Has your system been defragged? Have you run antispyware, adware, and antivirus scans? Suggest you run: Windows Defender, Adware 2.0.0.7, SpyBot 1.5.2. Or professional paid stuff such as AVG, SpySweeper, Spyware Doctor, Nod32, etc., if for no other reason than to rule out common causes.
Sometimes the problem is exacerbated by an install of a multifunction printer. HP, Lexmark, and Epson are particularly problematic. You would need to uninstall the printer, then reboot, and remove all evidence of it with RegClean, then reboot, defrag, then reinstall the printer.

Answer:Solved: MS Word 2007 - tracked changes, but cannot print original document

Tricky - I've not had that particular problem before, but Word can certainly get its knickers in a knot over certain things, and Track Changes is one of them.

It sounds as though the file might be corrupted somewhere. If so, a workaround I've often used is:
1. Create a new blank Word doc.
2. Go copy everything out of the crap Word file but take great care to LEAVE BEHIND the very last paragraph marker. (You will need to make para marks visible to make sure).
3. Switch files, & paste everything into the new Word doc.

Don't know whether this will help, but it would be worth trying. It definitely works for many problems.

Does anyone know anything about WinCVS? My office has been using WinCVS for document versioning (because it's free and it works) and up until we switched to Office 2007, everything was fine. Now, we need to begin saving our documents (mostly Word) in the new format (with the .docx ext.), but I can't find a way to connect the new .docx version to the old .doc version(s). For example, a document called "document1.doc" has been altered and the new version is "document1.docx." Because the document is saved in the new Word 2007 format, with a new file extension, it will not save as the latest version of the old document, only as a new document. Is there a way to "connect" the old and new formats in WinCVS?
 

Answer:WinCVS for document versioning-switching from Word 2003 to 2007

If you want to save a document to be compatible to open in word 97-2003 you cannot simply automatically save the document because it will save as a .docx. Therefore you cannot click on the disk icon at the top to save your document.

Go to the at the top left corner.
Choose Save As. Another menu will appear.
Choose Word 97-2003 Document from the list.
Choose where to save your file.
After the file has been saved as a .doc you can now just press save instead of save as. You can also press on the save symbol (a floppy disk) to automatically save the file now.

If not using Intuit's paper perhaps the supplier of the check blanks involved have a template for use in Word?

Can I do anything on my end to make these files readable, or do the students need to do something on their end before sending? I think I recall that the student can choose to "save as" and then choose the .doc ending, but I'd rather not ask them to do this. Many are even more technologically challenged than I am! So, if you can tell me how I can handle this on my end I would appreciate it.In peace, Dr. D.

Answer:How can I read a .docx document with my MS Office Word 2003?

I found this:http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/HA100444731033.aspxGoogle also has a few results:http://www.google.com.hk/search?hl=en&q=how+to+open+.docx+files&btnG=Google+Search&meta=&aq=f&oq=

I am looking for a free word processing program similar to the Windows Office program that will open a Windows office 2007 document. Are there any out there? I found and downloaded AbiWord, but I can't figure out how to open the document I need.
 

Answer:free word processing program that will open a windows 2007 document?

You should be able to click File, click Open, browse to and select the file you want to open, and that's about it. Or right click the file, select Open with.... then browse to AbiWord's EXE file (probably in Program Files\AbiWord), and click OK. You can also try OpenOffice but it's a pretty large download at 120mb for the standard version, the 'Pro' version is about twice that size.
Open Office Standard http://www.majorgeeks.com/OpenOffice.org_For_Windows_d3461.html
Open Office Pro (aka Oxygen) http://www.majorgeeks.com/OxygenOffice_Professional_d5340.html
You can also use Universal Viewer to view the document, but you won't be able to make any changes to it or edit it in any way. UV is for viewing/printing only. If that's all you need, here's the link: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Universal_Viewer_Lite_d5422.html It integrates into the Windows right-click menu, so you'd just right click on the file in question and select Universal Viewer in the menu.
And all the programs mentioned above are 100% free to download and use!

When setting up a Word 2007 template I divide the document into various sections - some with form elements which I protect and others that are kept open.
In the protect dialogbox I simply "unprotect" parts of the document divided by section breaks. (Section 1 & 3 are protected but 2 & 4 are unprotected).

How can I use bullets or numbered lists on the parts of the document that are NOT protected? These commands are not available at all as soon as I protect the form parts (1 & 3) of the a document EVEN if the other parts (2 & 4) - divided by section breaks - are excluded from the protection.

I run Win XP sp 2 & Office 2007 + Classic Menu 3.93 from Addintools.com

AAm I the only one to have ever come across this problem? I actually find that it is repeatable and here is how I managed to do it.

Step 1 - Under the insert tab click on the "Picture" to insert a picture. In case it is important the picture I am inserting is a .png file.

Step 2 - Press Enter to insert a space below the picture that has just been inserted.

Step 3 - Under the references tab click on insert caption.

Now this is where things get interesting because Word has to think hard about this one. By the time the Caption dialog box shows up so that I can tell it what kind of caption etcetera, the document I was working in appears to have vanished except for a few thin verticle lines off to the side.

Step 4 - Hit cancel.

Everything is gone, however hitting ctrl-z does restore the document so that at least now it is viewable. The trouble is that clicking anywhere in the document now results in the cursor going back to the beginning of the document. On top the document now being basically useless, with rare exception, all of the options under all of the tab menus (Home, Insert, Page Layout, etc.) are no longer highlighted! I cannot use any of them.

Worse, I cannot figure out how to restore my document to the point before I inserted the picture!

Any ideas about what is going on and how I can fix/avoid this problem?

Thanks,
Jeremy

The title basically says it all. I would like to know how to combine a bunch of Word 2007 documents without overlapping the first page, so basically I want there to be as many pages as there is for the amount of documents I want to combine with the original. Let's say there's the title page, then I want to add another 20 pages, well I should have 21 pages in total by the end of this.

If anyone knows how to do this, it would be greatly appreicated.

Thanks.
 

Answer:Combine multiple Word 2007 documents into one document on seperate pages

If this is a one off project the easiest way is to open the document that will be your main document, go the to the end of the document , Go To Insert>Text>Object>Select>Text from File and repeat until complete

How do I edit the macros of a document if the macro that closes the program is executing right when the document opens? It doesn't allow me enough time to go to View --> View Macros to delete or edit the auto-exec macro.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007 auto-exec macro closing document

If you open a brand new document without any macros attached you should be able to change the application security level to high so that no macros will run which will then allow you to open the document with the code attached to edit it.

Often when I open an existing Word 2007 or Excel 2007 document, two document windows open. One is the desired document. The other is a blank and untitled window perhaps better termed an ?empty? window with a pale blue color. None of the elements in the Ribbon are active (grayed out, or dimly ?blued out?). It is like a phantom window alongside the desired window. Nothing can be typed into the phantom. The phantom can be closed and the desired document remains. Also, the desired document can be closed and the phantom remains.

This only happens when I am opening by double left clicking on a file from within a Windows folder. If I open the file by right clicking and ?Open?, I do not get the extra document. The behavior is inconsistent; after a few various Office documents are opened, the behavior ceases and only the desired window appears. Behavior is confined to Word and Excel; double clicking on other types of documents, such as text, Acrobat, or photo files does not give this problem.

I also looked at this problem in Task Manager.
When I open a file by right-click + Open, I see one application task in T.M. that begins with the normal Word 2007 file icon on the left: a small W with a few tiny lines (within the icon) under the W. Then Filename - Microsoft Word non-commercial use; then under Status is shown Running. This is the desired file. When I open a file by double-clicking with the left mouse, two application tasks show up in T.M. Neither of these tasks has the normal ... Read more

Since I upgraded to Windows 10; I have noticed that all my older Word documents have been made "Read Only". Despite changing the properties to correct this. Word still loads them as Read Only documents and will not let me make changes. I also noticed; that since the upgrade, despite my account having FULL ADMINISTRATOR rights and permissions, Every action I take to attempt to correct any issues pops up the message that I need administrator rights to complete the action. The problems I experience on my Laptop don't apply to back-ups of the documents on external storage devices. Is there a simple fix for this? Or does anyone here have a solution; has noticed the same issue or have Microsoft screwed up yet again. (I remember Windows 95, ME and Vista. Some people never seem to learn from their mistakes).

Answer:Windows 10 changing attributes of office Document and Word files.

Will someone please help. Every attempt to get folder options to change has NO effect whatsoever. EVERY folder on my Laptop is now READ ONLY and even though Windows says it has applied the changes there is NO CHANGE. The situation is becoming intollerable. I am seriously thinking of shifting to Linux. WHAT THE **** ARE MICROSOFT THINKING. These problems will put off their core customer base. They will lose the business market if this kind of cock up continues.

I have a very simple Word 2007 macro-enabled template that has a single ActiveX checkbox control and a simple one-line Document_New macro. When this .dotm file is stored in a network folder that has been setup in Word 2007 to be a trusted location, Word always aborts when creating a new file based on this template.

If the ActiveX control is removed, or the macro code is removed, or the file is placed in a non-trusted location (and you select the option to enable macros when you get the security banner warning), it functions just fine. It's just the combination of ActiveX, macro code in a trusted location that causes the crash. I can e-mail the file for those that want to check it out.

Anyone got any ideas how to correct this strange one?

BTW, I have Office 2007 SP2.

Thanks!

This is a known issue with Word 2007 after installing another one of their hot-fixes (KB2251419). They applied a hot-fix (KB2449499) for it in October 2010

Here's a link:

I just figured this one out as well and was having the same issue.
