Having opened in Studio a DOC file sent by a client, I received the following:



How can I avoid this?

Thanks a lot,
Natalia

Aaaaargh.
I missed one thing.
You must have a yahoo account.
I have one I never check, I use it only in order to login and download files from the groups I subscribe.

Character Spacing in Word Jun 9, 2010

I had the same issue some weeks back for a Word document (is it Word yours?), I posted a topic too and the suggestion then was:

- Highlight the whole document
- Open Font options window
- Goto the Character Spacing tab
- Set Scale to 100% and Spacing to Normal

That resolved my issue. Hope that it works for you too

It's only one of CodeZapper features.
Some files may be more tricky.

Many thanks, Grzegorz! Jun 9, 2010

Zapping worked excellent.

Kjersti, correcting font was my first thought, and I even tried to do this. But the formatting is more complicated and, moreover, I have a dozen of files, so correcting them manually would be a waste of time.

Tortoise Tagger Jun 10, 2010

Hi Natalie,

You might be interested in trying out the freeware Tortoise tagger

http://www.nemadeka.com/tagger.htm

which is a set of MS Word templates that make your life easier when translating tagged files. I myself discovered this tool very recently, so I'm not an expert by any means, but for the problems you mention in this thread, I guess you could find useful the following Tortoise Tagger functions:

Misbehaving Doc Cleaner
TTX Target Remover
TTX to MS Word Converter


Kind regards,

Ana
