Preferred Solution: Vista - No option to create a text document?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Vista - No option to create a text document?

Hello everyone and thanks for your time.
I have been using Windows 7 for a long time and have gotten used to all the keys, mouse movements etc for opening stuff. Recently I bought a new Laptop with same version of Windows installed (Ultimate). However, when I right click the Desktop, the context menu of New does not show the option to Create a New Text Document. This is proving to be a real pain in the back . I have Notepad installed (by Default as it should be), and double-clicking *.txt files opens it, but the shortcut is nowhere to be seen. Please tell me why this is so and the easiest and most painless way (preferably without the need to Install something e.g. Registry Entry or Portable Program/Single *.exe Program would be better) to do it.
Thanks.

Answer:How to Create a New Text Document ?

Hello Forz,

You might see if using step 10 in the tutorial below will be able to restore New -> "Text Document" for you.New Context Menu - Remove & Restore Default Menu Items
If it doesn't, then download and merge the .reg file for the listed txt option in the tutorial below to restore it's default associations.Default File Type Associations - Restore
Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have searched everywhere on the web and I can't find a solution for it.
I changed my default text editor from notepad to PSPad (Programming), and after that my ability to add New Text Documents by right-clicking and going to New>Text Document has disappeared. I don't know how to fix it, I even tried putting Notepad as the default again, but it didn't work.

Answer:[SOLVED] Can't Create New Text Document

Hi, may not be easy to do this however lets see what you have here. Go to start, search and type regedit the reg editor will open Navigate to:-

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\ShellNew]
and expand in the right payne look for the string value "Item Name"
it should have this entry against Item Name:-
@%SystemRoot%\system32\notepad.exe,-470

If not then right click select modify and copy and paste the above into the box. Reboot to take effect.

If you wish you can select file from regedit and export this key to desktop call it txt.reg and if anything goes wrong you can double click it to merge back to registry.

If doing this worries you just tell us what you see in the registry , I can write you a .reg file to do this for you.

I'm trying to create what for all intents and purposes is an e-book that includes some animated figures, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this.It will be a very long text document (circa 80,000 words), which will need to have consistent styles, automated numbering systems for headings, figures, etc, and a means of handling references, such as what you see with EndNote and similar programs. The animations are currently gif images, and they will need to loop when displayed in the document. The final product would be saved as a pdf, which I understand is capable of displaying animations?Does anyone know if it is possible to get Word 2010 to handle animations, and if so, how? I know it's capable of all the other requirements, although it's a bit dodgy and prone to corruption with long documents, so I'll use sub-documents and a good backup system to get around this.Alternatively, does anyone know of a good text editor that would meet all the above requirements?Thanks in advance for your advice.

Answer:How to create a text document with animations

To the best of my knowledge, you can NOT display animation in a Word doc.If you save the document as a Web page, you can see the animation with a browser,but that does not sound like what you have in mind.Powerpoint may be an alternative, but I'm not sure.Alternatively, does anyone know of a good text editor that would meet all the above requirements?Here is a couple of lists:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_...http://ebooks-software-review.topte...You can probably find more using a Google search.MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/

Creating a simple website for my friend in a band. He'll need to update it maybe once a week w/ dates, showtimes, etc. HOWEVER, he is not technically inclined. I want to make it so he can just type what he needs into a text document (like Word/Notepad (or the Mac equivalent)) on his laptop (a Mac), save it, and have that update his page. I'd rather not have him wade through HTML.

I'm a graphic designer and somewhat technically inclined, but woefully ignorant about this stuff. What program / format would be both good for this purpose and simple enough if I'm only looking to learn this element? Are there any free tutorials online about it? I know Flash and Actionscript, but maybe there is a better tool out there for this...

Also, I'd like for there to be a way he could update photos by himself. Maybe he could have a folder on his laptop with say 3 pictures that he names pic1, pic2, pic3, where if he saves a new photo to one of those names, the new photo fills that slot. Or some better way?

FYI: I use a PC.

My sincere thanks for any help or insight...

This morning I accidentally forgot to restore some text to a Rich Text Document (rtd) before closing it; as a consequence I lost that portion of text (which is a portion that I didn't have the luxury of losing). Is there a way for me to regain that portion of text after the fact of having lost it? (I haven't been able to figure out a way to do it.)

First of all I've read the other post on this and all the stuff it says I should have in my registry I do have, but for some reason I'm still missing the option to make a new txt document in the "new" menu. I'm using Windows 7, so possibly there's something else I need to do?

This is probably a stupid question. I got a new laptop a few days ago, and am very happy with it. There is one small flaw and I am wondering if it can be fixed. When I right click and go to new, whether I be in documents, pictures, a jump drive, etc., there is no WordPad or Rich Text Document option. There is Microsoft Office Word Document, Journal Document, and Text Document as well as other things, however, I prefer WordPad to these. (Microsoft Word is okay to, but I only have a trial and I don't want to buy the full version, and I prefer WordPad regardless.) I know that WordPad is on my computer because I can access it through program files, as well as open documents with it. However it is not an option under New. Note: My laptop has Vista (although I hope to switch to XP soon), not sure if this makes a difference. If there is any way to create new WordPad documents (besides opening WordPad and saving a new document) please let me know! Thanks! -SV

I infrequently design web sites and I cheat and use Front page. Needless to say, I am JS challenged!

I would like to know how to show a link on my web page that will print a specific document. I know how to link to a document and then open that document and print it, but I am wondering how to just print a document with an onclick selection without opening the document.

On another site I read that someone "open the target document in a small pop-up window, immediately move focus back to the main window, execute the print command, and then close the pop-up." However, I do not know how to write any of this.

In the past when I have added JS to the Html section of Front Page - sometimes it shows like it is supposed to and other times it the actual JS appears when I go to view. Any suggestions.

Dear friends,

each time I try to open a particular program (Mathcad 15) I get the message 'Failed to create empty document'.
Then the program goes on but is useless because I cannot open an new or existing document.
In my opinion this is a permission problem because the program runs without a problem within the hidden administrator account.
I tried a lot of things:
running as administrator
setting permissions for the program
taking ownership

nothing works.
This is very annoying because I have a huge library of MCad document I can't open anymore.
Well I could when I login as hidden administrator but this is not a good idea I suppose.

Not directly, unless you have Acrobat Writer. The only way I can think of is to print it, then scan the print with an OCR program.

I have a pdf document that I downloaded from the internet. I just want to copy the text of a paragraph or two to cite as a quotation in another work--fair use and the source is duly noted. However I am unable to highlight any of the text in order to copy it to the clipboard. I have downloaded the trial version of a dozen or more so-called "pdf copy text protection removal" programs, but so far nothing seems to work. What am I missing? Does anyone have a clue?

Thanks for any and all responses!

Question: Open Document Text

I need to open 'Open Document Text' documents in Word 2002. These have been received prepared in the Open Office WRITER programme, part of the Open Office Suite. Any ideas, please?

Answer:Open Document Text

I don't use OpenOffice myself so I could be wrong but I don't think that MS Word can open OpenOffice Write documents if they have been saved in its native format. You could ask the person who sent you the documents to save them in Word format from the File Save As dialogue and choose MS Word (.doc) in the File Type drop down box. Of course, since OpenOffice.org is free for personal use you could download it click here and install it on your own PC. If you choose a custom install you can install just the Writer if that's all you need.

(This is about a different, new computer.)

Computer was asleep early this morning, but after SuperAntiSpyware ran, it dir not go back to sleep. Testing showed that automated sleep is not working. Rebooted, got a pop-up box with the text as shown in the title of this message.

Ran the MS diagnostic for this problem, using msconfig; no luck. Googled for the error, not much there, but did try a few things. Turned off router, so not likely to be a address conflict, as one person was able to fix the problem through that route.

Ran another SuperAntiSpyware scan, a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan, one with Avast!, and the on-line HouseCall scan; nothing found. I have run a few of Dell's on-line diagnostics, nothing found so far.

I would appreciate knowing how to inoculate the computer, or what spell to cast thereupon, or how to properly remove the enchantment, or even anything actually related to repairing the whatever-it-is that is causing a probably very useful empty document to not be created. (Oh, yes, CCleaner was also ran, which deleted lots o temporary files, etc.)

==

After posting this fascinating missive, I ran one of the MS Fixit programs, which did find that the Recycle Bin was corrupt and fixed it. I rebooted; sadly, I still got the pop-up error message, but yet one more test of the sleep function found the computer willing to obey its master, as first the monitor and then the computer went to sleep with a one-minute setting.

when I try to print any documdent with a print command, I only get anoption to save the document as a tiff file. Saving the documnet and then trying to print it gives the same "save as" option again. Printer is HP photosmart 6100 series.

Answer:printer will not print only gives option to save document as tiff file

Looks like your default printer is not your HP but someone else that produces a TIFF file. If you go File->Print you should be able to select printer before you print. If you just click on the print icon, the default printer is used and you cannot select another. To fix it click on the search icon on the taskbar and type devices, click to open Devices and printers. Then right-click on you HP and make it default. If it still produces a TIFF rather than printing, the port is set to File, rather than USB. Right-click on the printer and select Printer Properties. Click the Port tab and then from the list of ports check the box next to USB. Another way would be to delete the printer from Devices and Printers, disconnect it and then reconnect to be detected again and assigned the appropriate USB port.

I use OpenOffice Writer and I wrote several pages of text that's really kinda important and I have no idea about computers at all so getting it back isn't going well. Basically, I've got an old laptop and occasionally the battery dies without giving me any notice before hand (I try to keep an eye on it but I get absorbed in my work so that usually ends badly), however a lot of the time openoffice manages to recover the work I've done. In fact this is the first time that I can remember when it hasn't been able to. So I'd love to know how to recover my lost work - it's not a full document, just the stuff I was working on today, but it's still a lot of work and I need it back. Help please?
 

Answer:lost text from a recovered document

You will only be able to recover up to the latest AUTOSAVE. The timing of these is up to you to set from within OpenOffice (and I don't know what it defaults to).
You might try looking in your TEMP folder - wherever that is set to- , or, your Office TEMP folder if that is different (it is in MS Office).

I suggest that if you have an iffy machine, you set the default to a shortish time.

Answer:photos turned into text document

It seems that file is merely a log file of the error that was generated by the device when it was unplugged. It doesn't hold any pictures inside the file, merely a computer message that says there was an error transferring the photos. If they are still on the device (it sounds like they should still be), it should be easy to just transfer them again.

I've never had this problem before, so I don't know if it's got to do with how Windows 8 is set up, if there's a bug with OneDrive, or what, but I spent all day typing up a document- saving it several times throughout -before I saved it one last time to unplug my computer and take it to my bedroom. When I plugged it back in again, started it up, and opened the document to go over it again, the entire document was blank. I could highlight a huge chunk of the paper, but there were no words, no indentations, and no separate paragraphs. My font had been Calibri, and now it says that it's Courtier New. What's happened? OneDrive online won't even open it, and when I copy the invisible text to a new page, to see if the page itself is maybe corrupt, the only thing that pastes is one line like someone tapped the enter button on a brand new page.
This frustrates me to no end, and it's happened before. In the past, I've caught it quickly enough that I can access it on OneDrive before it updates itself online, and I can save it. But the messed up file updated itself too fast for me to salvage anything this time.
In the past, I've also had this happened when I attempt to open OneDrive too quickly after restarting my computer. The whole page is blank, because the text hasn't been loaded yet because my computer was still connecting with OneDrive... or something... but then all I had to do was wait and open the document again and it would be fine.

Answer:Is It Safe To Delete This Text Document

Hello ozhawk,

The file in question is not that large, it is around the same size as an audio file. The probable reason for it not being defragged is that mcafee is using the file to perform operations. If you want the file gone, you will most likely have to remove mcafee and install an appropriate substitute for mcafee.

2/also, on a brochure, there are diff. pictures, and i want to extract one of the pictures and use it as logo; what's the easiest way to grab just that picture from that page?

Thanks.
 

Answer:need help extracting text from a scanned document

Scanning text as text rather than an image requires OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. Most scanner software includes some version of OCR.

If you scan the document in using OCR, you might have an easier time of it when converting to pdf and I know you'll be able to copy text.

Unfortunately, OCR is limited in what it can do. It has to look at the document being scanned and basically guess what character the mark on the page represents. The more limited (i.e., cheaper) the OCR software, the worse it will be at guessing. The poorer the quality of the original (faded type, photocopier smudges, colored paper, etc.) the more often it will guess wrong. The more heavily formatted the document (forms, tables, borders, lines), the more mistakes the software will make.

After you've scanned using OCR, just open it in a word processing program and clean up any mistakes.

As far as getting one image from a page, just scan the page in as an image, open it in some graphic/picture editing software (even MS Paint should be able to do this), use the selection tool to select the picture and either copy and paste it into a new image or use the "crop" or "edit" feature of the software you use to take out everything but what you have selected. Then save it.

This will be a delivery document having 3 copies, each copy needs the same serial number.
The serial number needs to increment by +1 after each print but any information entered needs to be reset to blank.
A user form for input ?
Excel or Word (no mailmerge)
Document will reside in a shared folder on a server.
Needs to be user friendly (Idiot proof!)
 

Answer:Auto create a sequential serial number for a document

It is possible in Excel. I know of no way to do it in Word. The method is simple.
1. Create the template workbook with all the fields you see fit.
2. Copy the code below into the code module of the workbook

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
Dim cdp As DocumentProperty

On Error GoTo NoSuchProperty
Set cdp = ThisWorkbook.CustomDocumentProperties("PrintCounter")
cdp.Value = cdp.Value + 1
ActiveSheet.Range("A1") = cdp.Value
ThisWorkbook.Save
Exit Sub
NoSuchProperty:
ThisWorkbook.CustomDocumentProperties.Add Name:="PrintCounter", LinkToContent:=False, Type:=msoPropertyTypeNumber, Value:=0
Set cdp = ThisWorkbook.CustomDocumentProperties("PrintCounter")
Resume Next
End Sub


The code looks up the custom document property called "PrintCounter". If the property doesn't exist, it will be created.
Before each print attempt, the counter will be increased by one, and the workbook (with the new propery value) will be saved.
The code displays the counter in cell A1, but it can be displayed anywhere, even in header or footer, even as part of a longer string.

I have a computer that has Office 2003 and in Word when you create a new file and fill up page 1 and want to hit Enter to begin on page 2 it doesn't do anything. The cursor remains blinking right there at the bottom of page 1. Very weird. I've never seen this before. Has anyone seen this and found a resolution to this problem?

I would like to open Windows Explorer, click on a CD-ROM and, from the list shown, create a document that can be inserted into Word. I would like to avoid using jpeg or gif files since I would like to be able to edit whatever is entered into the document. Is there a program out there that does this that I can download without subscribing to PC World or other mags? Shareware, pay for or freeware, I am not concerned about the program costing something, I just don't want to subscribe to a magazine just to download one item.

Thanks for any help.

I'm having a couple problems that could be related.

1. On Citrix - I'm having disconnections, even though the user remain active. So it's not the "Disconnection/Hybernation" that happens when a user is inactive.

2. To investigate the disconnection, I check the Event Viewer on Win2k3, when I click on "Manage", I get the following error: Failed to create empty document.

It goes away if I reboot the server.

Server config: PIII 800MHZ, 1+gig MB Dell Poweredge
Win 2k3, Citrix 4.0
 

Answer:Windows 2k3 - Citrix: Failed to create empty document

Perhaps there is some error with the way Citrix is creating log entries. It may need certain account level access to write a log entry. Is there also an add on that Citrix creates inside of the management console?
Check this forum, seems to have worked for them:

I just reinstalled XP Professional on a year old Acer laptop and am suddenly getting various Parser file errors as well as "failed to create empty document" errors. This occurs during just about any operation I attempt to execute on the computer, even when trying to access device manager. From what I've learned about these errors it has to do with MMC but I haven't been able to find out what to do to fix the problem. If it would be best to reinstall XP again, I don't mind but what has caused this to happen in the first place?
 

Answer:Parser & failed to create empty document errors

I'm guessing nobody knows the answer to this since my question hasn't generated any replies or even that many views for that matter. Oh well, thanks anyway, guess I'll try somewhere else.

  Each time that I select a text and attempt to print only that text exactly where it is aligned on the page, Microsoft software always moves the selected text to the top of the page to print.  I know how to select > copy > paste to another page and move the text to where I want it, but that is time-consuming compared to simply select > print as Corel WordPerfect allows one to do. I have used both Corel WordPerfect and Microsoft Word for fifteen years.  Corel WP is able to do as I am describing---Select a portion of a document > Print > Selected text > Print---and it prints the selected text exactly where it is located on the document rather than moving it to the top of a page to print .Is that possible with Microsoft software?

Answer:How can I print a selected text exactly as it is aligned on the document?

Welcome!Computer Hope is the number one location for free computer help. We help everyone with all computer questions.Yes, Word Perfect has that.No, I have never seen it in MS word.However, this might help: Create a shortcut key for printing selected text in Word
