I don't know what happened, but all of a sudden Word starts crashing if I use Bullets or Numbering. Word Application shuts down and displays a file recover dialog. Kindly helpI am using Word 2003. In this same discussion forum, I found a solution that worked. http://www.officearticles.com/word/steps_to_troubleshooting_microsoft_word.htm In this step 4 remove Word's registry entries under HKEY_CURRENT_USER suggestion worked fine.
I've noticed a really unusual intermittent bug in my version of MS Word. Suppose there are two consecutive lines of text in my document, Line A and Line B. I want to insert a new line between Lines A & B, so I position the cursor in between them and hit return (not highlighting Line B beforehand, because I'm not trying to get rid of it). When I do so, Line B seems to disappear, with the cursor (and empty line in front of it) taking the place of Line B. However, when I hit "page up" or "page down", Line B reappears. Anyone know why this might be happening
When typing into table cells a highlight covers all text in all cells, preventing me to see what I just typed and what I am typing? How can this be removed?Perhaps the table is a field?
and questions to the newsgroup so that others can learn from my ignorance and your wisdom.Thanks Charles Implemented the remedial action for Bullets buts still get crashes (2 in five minutes). I have reverted from my own template to the 'normal' template coupled with using the styles method suggested and, so far, so good.

If either then you could be expatriating some corruption in the Registry. Even though your computer is new

I have no List Gallery Presets key in my registry. (deleted it in the past - doesn't exist now) 3. Word used to crash if I selected several lines and executed Format -> Bullets and Numbering, but I have fixed that (seems to have been overcome via Detect and Repair). Bullets and numbering, in Word alone, work just fine. 4. Though this may not have any bearing, I'
's last line: Ctrl-V adds the line to the table, but it *loses the top/bottom padding*. (This used to work right in previous versions!). Feature wanted: Tables: New tables come with a setting providing for cell padding left and right, but not top/bottom. They don't look good to me, so every single time I create a new table I must change the zeroes in Table properties / Options, which is very time consuming. I would like Word to have a setting where I can tell it what padding cells should always have in a new table; Word's presets seem very random to me.Hi Rainer, What
or bulleted items, when I click on Format/Bullets and Numbering Word simply shuts down with an error sent to Microsoft. The error has no information in it. This started happening last week. I use outline numbered documents all the time. I cannot find any reference to this problem in the knowledge base or anywhere else. How can I recover? I have already tried uninstalling Word 2003 and reinstalling. That did not work.Often this is a corruption in the Word DataKey.

I can format several lines to use simple numbering, but the results are unexpected as text randomly jumps throughout the document. I've tried to repair the installation, uninstall and reinstall, and tried to create new documents with no change in this problem. Please advise.This could be due to some minor corruption in the Registry. Exit Word in the Registry drill down to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\List Gallery Presets And delete the List Gallery Presets key. This
Obviously, these exact steps I would never do working on an actual document. But I work with bullets and numbering often, and often have multiple files open which I do make changes. This means, this extra junk is getting added everytime I do that, and I have made many files until I noticed this today. It explains why some of my file sizes are getting larger and larger EVEN WHEN I TAKE INFORMATION OUT. This is creating quite a problem.A file shouldn't increase in file size just because you added numbering in any version. Based on your description of the issue, check File/Versions
When using the outline format and tabing forward for a subsection, the outline numbering will not indent or change. Also, when in the outline format application, reverse tab (shift+tab) does not work.On the AutoFormat As You Type tab of Tools | AutoCorrect, check the box for "Set left- and first-indent with tabs and backspaces."
Package: Word 97 SR-2 I have a 2.5 Meg document made up of tables.The bullets and numbering command will not allow me to insert a numbered list beginning at 1.It will start the list at 2 even when I have set the numbers command to start at 1. An error message is also displayed when saving the document. The message says "-- file may be corrupt-- copy and save---". Any ideas?The size of the document and the fact that it contains tables (and that it's Word 97) suggest that the message about corruption may be all too true. See http://word.mvps.org/FAQs/AppErrors/CorruptDoc
containing bits clipped from other people's docs (which may be irrelevant). When I use numbering or bullets it frequently locks solidly. If it works it usually imposes the new numbers/bullets on the entire document, every sentence. Pressing Alt Backspace repairs the latter and usually leaves the paragraph properly formatted. This last feature also occurs with indent.

part of the professional version. I am at work. When ever I either highlight a section to add bullets to, or right click and simply click the bullets and numbering option, Word freezes then crashes. It will always ask if I want to sent the error report. I stoppped sending this because it never gives me a solution. This occurs every, every time I go to bullets and numbering. Until I realized when the problem occured - I would crash every hour or so. Help, I cannot use that option and need to.This may be because you have a partially corrupt printer driver or a registry corruption

When I click on a word document containing table cells, the last character is often hidden by the right edge of the cell. Changing font or size just changes which lines fail to wrap properly. Changing the right margin of the cells does the same thing. When I enter the text into the cells, it look right. But after saving the file and reopening it the word wrap is incorrect. It also prints wrong. Any help will be greatly appreciated.Hi Richard, Have you checked the right margin in "Format > Paragraph"? Might be negative Greetings, KlausYOU ARE RIGHT!!!
User has Word 2002 SP2. On a new blank document the user clicks the Bullets toolbar icon and Word immediately crashes. If she selects text then uses Formatting|Bullets and Numbering it works OK. The next blank document she tries to use the Bullets icon, Word crashes. Renaming normal.dot had no effect, she still crashes. Did SP2 have a known problem with this? I may be able to get SP3 loaded, especially if it will fix the problem. Thank you.Check that you have the latest printer driver available and then delete and reinstall the printer.Thanks for the suggestion. We'll try
. Currently the destination bookmarks are spread about the doc usually at chapter headings or in the contents table. When I hyperlink text in table cells to bookmarks its works OK. Try testing it on 3 pages. Put a word in a text box on the last page and book mark a work in the 1 st and 2 nd pages then hyperlink the text in the box to the work (bookmarked) in the second page. With me it goes to top of the doc viz page 1. Thanks for your continued assistance with this.

send a message to Microsoft. There is no meaningful message with the error. When I started Word in safe mode, Format Bullets and Numbers worked. I tried it again in normal mode after that and got the same error. This started just last week. How do I recover?Safe mode uses factory default settings, that is, current registry settings are ignored, and add-ins as well as normal.dot settings are bypassed. In other words, the fact that Word works in Safe mode indicates an error with the registry, with normal.dot or with an add-in. Try the following: Exit Word, delete the ListGalleryPresets
In regarrds to bullets and numbering: If a user clicks on the numbering or bullets toolbar item, often the numbering will start above the current line even if the user has pressed "Enter." This makes little sense. If a user has begun entering a numbered list, and the autocorrect system catches it, it will often start numbering at an item number greater than 1. It will miss at least the first item. Often a user will find the final item in the list (Being edited) will be numbered twice, and sometimes the number will not match.Except for very simple numbering jobs in
**Word 2003 user** Hi, I have been working in a documents for some time. And for some reason bullets and numbering dissapears from time to time. I have no idea what can cause it, but it is annoying so I stopped remaking them, but at some time I need to get them back. Can anyone help me with this?Are you saying that text which was once numbered lose the numbering formatting, or what happens exactly? How did you apply the numbering in the first place? Is "Automatically update document styles" checked in Tools | Templates and Add-Ins? If so, clear it.
