Answer: how to resize PDF document

From what I've read snipingtool.exe seems to have a knack of going missing and there are many failed attempts on sorting it out. If you know anyone with Windows 7 it might just copy across to the location given and work.Might be easier to use a freebie program such as MWSnap:http://www.mirekw.com/winfreeware/m...It's old but good. You can snap to any size, or complete Windows, etc.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

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 am using a 30" at 2560x1600. Each time I open Word Perfect X3, and open 2 documents, I have to resize it to fit approx. 1280x1600 for each document..

Now, if WordPerfect X3 itself is opened at 1280x1600, and I open 1 document, no problem.

But if I launch WordPerfect X3 to 2560x1600, then open 2 documents, I run into the above problem, so I have to spend time to resize them every time.

Should WordPerfect X3 automatically memorize the size setting of 2 document?

Somehow I've lost the ability to right click on an image file and resize it. I used to be able to right click on a file, go to "send to", "mail recipient" and have a wizard pop up that would allow me to resize images for the email.. but no longer. I don't think I've installed anything lately that would compromise this feature, but who knows... I've tried downloading and installing the image resizer power toy from MS, but it doesn't seem to register and I don't get any options that allow me to resize images if I right click on them...

In any case, any help someone may have would be very helpful...
thanks.

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.

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open. I must now open a new empty document to write in. What I want to happen:1. Open new document2. Open old document3. Both new and old document are open (2 windows).Other notes in no particular order:- Word has always operated like this. Just wondering if there is a way to stop it.- I am not using the "Open" function in Word to open the older file, I am opening the older file by double-clicking it in the File explorer. When I use the "Open" function in Word, it does the same (basically "closing" the new file in order to open the old one). - I tried searching through Word's settings but couldn't find anything that seemed to relate to this behavior.- As per regular Word behavior, the new document is auto-na...

Yes, you are right. That is normal for MS Word.Do this:Open a new document. Type something. Even a single space. Save it with a name you want. Now open an older document. Both documents can be on the screen or cascaded.If memory is not an issue, you can haven two instances of Word.

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

Regards

Answer:[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.

Hi,

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word. Additionally, I know that the document could be sent from Windows Explorer by right-cli... Read more

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.
 

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help". I cannot remember how I found this feature on my previous (W~2000) computer. -- Thanks

Select "Normal Word Document"
then save the Word document.

Answer:Word Document within another document

The only simple way is to go to Insert, Object, Create from file and choose to insert your file as a link (these are 2003 instructions - would be similar in 2007, though.) However, you will then get a questions about the file having links and do you want to update...every time you open the file.
You could also just insert some text and hyperlink it to the other file.
Finally, someone could probably write some VBA that would insert the file and update it every time you opened it.

If by resize you mean open a new window at a certain size you do that with JS. You can just look at the source for the page you linked. It's only one line, it's fairly easy to do. For the page you posted it's all on line 23. You could just copy and paste that code and replace the link info.

The real question is why do you want to do it? That sort of thing is very annoying and considered to be bad coding practice.

Question: Resize C Drive

I have Windows 7 64 bit and it has worked fine for a long time. Recently I installed a new program and I got the message that I could NOT run the program because I was low on memory for C drive.

My Hard Drive is partitioned into three partitions C, D and E.

Is there anyway I can reduce the size of D drive and add that reduction to C drive??

Help is appreciated.

Answer:Resize C Drive

I'm afraid not, I believe that in order to change partition sizes, they must be deleted then reformed. You'd have to backup all the data and then format the hard drive - not a good idea.
Did you get an option to change the installation path when you installed the program? If you did, you could just change it to the partition with more space on it.

Alternatively, you could try changing the program file installation directory so new programs are installed to the partition with more space in it, and then uninstall the program and reinstall it. This would be complicated though as you'd have programs on each partition.

Hope this helps,

Mark

I recently installed Windows Xp professional on my Pentium III, 766 Mhz, 256mb memory. Everything works out fines however i just find out that I could not resize any picture as I normally could(with other PC running windowsXP Pro) when I right click any picture in My Pictures folder. With this PC, when I right click a picture, there's no option for me to RESIZE. I have so many digital pictures copied from my 5.0 mp camera, but without this RESIZE option, it's almost impossible to send any of these "large" pictures via email. i have tried to look for help on HELP AND SUPPORT on windows XP, but I couldn't find the answer to this.

Please help me to make this RESIZE feature available. Thanks.

Install the resizer powertoy (That is probably what was on the other computer---resizing is not usually there):

I have the issue that my C: drive is pretty much out of space, I keep getting low space warnings and I've tried moving everything I can to my D: drive. Basically it's a 1.5TB disk with C: and D: partitions. I'd like to take some of the space from D: maybe 100GB and move it to C:. It seems very hard to find a tutorial to do just that.

I feel like I can do it in Disk Management simply by shrinking D: by 100GB (or whatever) and then extending C: by that same amount but I want to be sure that I can do that without losing any data. I need this computer for work (and for play). Is there a straight forward tutorial on doing this somewhere? Thanks.

Answer:How to resize C: partition

There is a flow in your plan. It's that pesky 350MB recovery partition because you cant extend or merge to D: with it in the way. It could be done only with adjacent partitions.
I don't know haw you ended up with so many recovery partitions. Normally only one is needed.

Question: Frame resize

I have made a website with frames but I can't get the frameset to resize when the window is made smaller. You can see the problem at www.vinespastagrill.com I originally made this site using 1024x768 and now you can't see the bottom frame without using that resolution. I don't know the procedure to correct this problem. Thanks.
 

Answer:Frame resize

oh why did i look at your site before i had breakfast
- do you deliver to Alberta ?

looking at your source code, noticed that the embedded swf objects (icons) are set to 100x100 size even though your tables are all set to relative (ie %) sizes
-> your tables want to resize as the window changes but can't go any smaller than the fixed size of the objects/icons

using relative sizes for tables will keep the perspective but only to a point - any fixed size objects, graphics etc won't change

you can try:
- changing your monitor resolution to 800x640 when designing to help you see what it'll look like at smaller resolutions
- using a primary table to hold everything on the page with a relative size of 96% - 100%, with smaller nested (ie inside) tables to hold and place the text, graphics, etc
- try animating the wineglass icons instead of using swf files ( smaller, faster to load, people without the shockwave plug-in won't get annoying messages )
[note: maybe use the swf wineglass file just once, at the left of contents/nav lower frame, then other animated or static icons for the specific links - it's a great dancing wineglass]
[GIF Works is a great source - you can animate a gif online for free, plus they have lots of other media]

just some thoughts for you

Question: Resize Partition

Hi people,

This is my first post on this forum so please bear with me!

My question is:
I have a new notebook and I have used windows bit-locker on the C drive. My notebook didn't come with a TPM chip so I used a work around to get it working by using a flash drive with the keys installed on it, so I just plug the stick in at the boot process for everything to load up successfully.

However Ive installed VMware and its taken up a lot of space on drive C. what I want to do now is allocate some of the free space on the D: drive to the C drive, if that makes sense?

Just to clarify my D: drive has no bit-locker encryption on it, but my C: drive does.

Want I want to know is can i just use a partition tool to give the C drive some more space or will this cause problems as its using the bit-locker software?

Also if I can do this, whats the best partition tool to use?

Many thanks in advance,

Carlo.

OK here's the story. I created a dual boot after installing linux, then I deleted it and the partition leaving 20 gigs of free space.I want to return that space to my windows partition.Is this possible?I played around with partition magic but got no joy.

Answer:Resize Partition

Generally, if it's adjacent to the windows partition you can merge them. If it's not next to the windows partition, then I'd discourage it and suggest that you just format it and give it another drive letter.

The reason for not merging non-adjacent partitions is that it requires many steps from partition magic to complete. And each step introduces the opportunity for errors to occur. It's been my experience in the past that operations such as this will corrupt data - so I recommend against it.

I am new to the forum and new to PC diagnostics so I am seeking your help. In trying to clean up a computer with Windows 2000, I used ntfs resize to put a partition in the hard drive. The drive has some very important data on it. Previously it had no partitions at all and was full of viruses. (mistake) I wanted to reformat the computer without zipping tons of files so I used the resize tool. After defraging the drive and using the software, I cannot get the computer to recognize anything on the drive, even when the drive is put in another computer. I am told the drive is clean, has no partitions, and no file systems.
But I think (hope, prey etc...) the data is still on there, I just can't access it. Does anyone have an idea on what I can do?
Any help would be worth its weight in gold.

Thank you,
Brian

I'm setting up a W10 computer for a friend. It's an HP all-in-one which has the motherboard, hard drive etc, inside the 23" screen. The res is 1920 x 1080, or 16:9.

I'd like to configure her display to look like my 24" 1920 x 1200 (16:10), but I can't see how.

I don't much like wide screen monitors, even with a 16:10 format, so I have my Taskbar positioned at the right of the screen. It's loaded with 4 columns of shortcut icons so it's about 40mm wide. This results in the remainder of the screen being compressed to the left, so that it's even squarer than on a normal 16:10. In other words, the desktop display abuts the Taskbar.

I've tried doing this on the HP 23" but instead of the display abutting the Taskbar, it's visible behind it. In other words, it's not affected by the width of the Taskbar.

There must be something obvious I'm missing on the W10 computer that would enable the result I want but I don't know enough about the OS at this stage. All I can think of is that the Taskbar is still set at the default Aero-type semi transparency, whereas I've disabled transparency on my own display and set it to Windows Classic.

Anyone able to offer an insight?

Thanks for reading

Answer:Display - is it possible to do this resize?

some of those all-in-ones supports that 1900x1200 but not all. so if you have drivers installed it should do it by just switching the resolution? if it doesnt support, you prolly have to use some 3rd party drivers to shrink/stretch the picture as you want to

I have the issue that my C: drive is pretty much out of space, I keep getting low space warnings and I've tried moving everything I can to my D: drive. Basically it's a 1.5TB disk with C: and D: partitions. I'd like to take some of the space from D: maybe 100GB and move it to C:. It seems very hard to find a tutorial to do just that.

I feel like I can do it in Disk Management simply by shrinking D: by 100GB (or whatever) and then extending C: by that same amount but I want to be sure that I can do that without losing any data. I need this computer for work (and for play). Is there a straight forward tutorial on doing this somewhere? Thanks.

Answer:How to resize C: partition

There is a flow in your plan. It's that pesky 350MB recovery partition because you cant extend or merge to D: with it in the way. It could be done only with adjacent partitions.
I don't know haw you ended up with so many recovery partitions. Normally only one is needed.

I want to make my start orb bigger, I know I can do it with an image editing program but is thier any software I can download that has the ability to do it?

Google searches are being difficult so does anyone on here already know of a program that can do this?

Even though my name is techpro a program would be nice, should be technovice haha.


Note: I have Windows 7 start button changer 2.6.

- I would prefer an actual resize over a resolution change.

Thanks!
