Rename your normal.dot file to something else then restart Word. It will create a new file.
Help..I lost my word file. How can I retreive a file that has been changed? sm

I was working on a large file and had saved it in Word. I then went back to work on the file and hit a key that made the page go blank.  When I went to close the document it asked me to save any changes on the document. I answered yes, and now when I click on that document it is all blank! Shouldnt the previous info saved be there, even if the current stuff is not? Please help me!! Thank you

Was it a Word file?
It's a real pain, but if you do a wild card search (*.doc) you might be able to find it. Requires sifting through a lot if irrelevant stuff, but if it works...hey. 
Read the Word help file.
Your auto correct file has an .acl file extension. Your auto text are connected to the template you use (probably normal) but you'll have to transfer that template to the new computer as well in order for those entries to be retained.

Where is *acl file in Word 2000? TX
Word lists more than one .acl file so you want to be...
sure you find the correct one for your version of Word. Each version names that file differently. There are also different language .acl files.
Need some help sending a Word file by e-mail...

We are selling our house and I am trying to send flyers via e-mail...however, I saved the file in Word (2 pictures and basic information, not very big) but it is too big to send via e-mail...is there any other way to save this so I can send the information via e-mail...I tried copying and pasting the document directly into e-mail but the pictures then do not show up..

I usually am able to figure out most things on the computer but I am getting frustrated with this...any help is appreciated...



I believe you would need to make changes to the normal.dot file in Word.

There are two ways to do it.  You can open up your existing normal.dot file and change your view to 200% and then save it.  Or you can create a whole new normal.dot file with the settings you want, but if you do it this way, you have to find and delete the original normal.dot file.

Either way, every new document should be magnified to 200% and in whatever font you set the default as.

Are you looking for "landscape?" In word it is under file-page setup--nm
Word has a wonderful help file. It will tell you how to do lots of things.
The most explicit directions can be found in the Word Help file.
You can print out the directions and follow them step-by-step. It can also explain auto text to you, just type that in the search box.
I just pull up in word and save as Rich Text File...nm
Click on File and then New (top left corner of window of MS Word)
Sometimes if I right clink on the word file in the status bar, it will "unfreeze" it. Be caref
Are you paid by the line, word, hour?

Files are emailed with password protected zip file attachments done in Word...(sm)
So I could use OE and send this way and ask for a reciept. I love that idea....
Well, I love some Autocorrect features--best thing about Word-- and I backup *.acl file---so I never
Well, I love some Autocorrect features--best thing about Word-- and I backup *.acl file---so I never lose it. Just replace it in the Windows folder (copy and paste my newest backup *.acl file--which I copy once a day--into the Windows folder on the C:drive). takes less than a minute, never "lose" Autocorrect anyumore. For years I did, though, before I figured out where it was. Just search for *.acl on your computer and copy the file that comes up as owner.acl or whatever you named your computer-- and then put it on the desktop as the backup file, jsut make a folder or whatever, newest backup acl-- along with Normal.dot-- and copy these once a week onto a disk.
Just open glo file in Word, highlight all, then change case and save back
to glo file. Use the Alt key trick to highlight just the column of words, then Shift + F3 to toggle through the change case commands. First save your glossary under a different name so you also keep the original.
sounds like you may have accidentally--sm
deleted the whole toolbar. go up to *view* and click on that. *toolbars* should be in the drop down list. If the standard toolbar is still checked, there is a toolbar manager in the same place where you can choose what icons you want on it. good luck.
Maybe you are accidentally turning it
on by hitting Ctrl-B or a combination of keys to turn it on. I am always accidentally making words all CAPS.
erased tapes accidentally

What happened with the MT who believed that she accidentally erased two tapes that had not yet been transcribed?  I do hope that things went well with the office, and that you did not lose the account.  It would be very uplifting to hear that some doctors do have hearts.


Accidentally! Yeah, right!?! Oh dear!
And bubbles?? Guess he didn't have fleas??!!
I signed off a job on my C-phone and then accidentally

overwrote the file, still not sure how I did it.   Anyway, I need to retrieve the report and retranscribe it.  I know it can be done, just not sure how.   Do I need to dial into a second phone number or can I use my regular phone number and use the keys to get it back.

I e-mailed my company around noon today and still haven't heard back from them, so hope someone where may be able to offer some help.




or just pop a Benadryl if you've accidentally over-caffeinated. ;)
you didn't accidentally hit *print preview*, did you?
check that, make sure you are not in print preview mode. go up to file and select print preview in the drop down box. that will open up the print preview and look for a *close* button. hope that is it.
My DD at 5 mixed an entire pitcher of Kool and accidentally
I accidentally saved over my template with the date and a patient's name. I cannot figure out how
I think it is the same type of file, so rename it and replace your autocorrect file with your DQS us
Depends on the file format of the Short Cuts file.
ShortHand comes with a utility file that can import various formats. You can get that file with the trial download of SH.

...with your user.aco file. Save your autocorrect file to somewhere else. nm
You can save the SH file in a text file and import to IT that way. sm
You may have to do some cleanup in the SH text file, but it sure would be faster than re-entering them all manually.
File taxes under the name on file w Social Security....
Name on W2 doesn't have to match, but your tax return has to match SS records. They don't want your marriage license or anything else. Did that for 13 years as instructed by IRS. Didn't have to change it with SS until state changed rules requiring drivers license to match SS records. Still use my maiden name in some limited circumstances.
Depends on the pay and account. My lowest average is $15.52 an hour (roughly 182.6 lines an hour) w
1850 lines per 8 hour shift. 15.00 hour - no real requirement
if it is feasable, split that 6-hour shift into two 3-hour shifts. sm
i work a split shift and find that i am much better able to stay focused and get more work done that way. also, being 3 months pregnant you have gone through the very tiring time of pregnancy and you should start seeing an energy perk before long.
I start an hour or 2 early and then take an hour or 2 for dinner -nm
At 200 lines a day for 6 cents, you are making $1.20 a day or 0.15 hour for an 8 hour day!!!--cm
Did you mean 2,000? Even then you would only be making $1.50 if you work 8 hours a day.
$32/hour? You said $36/hour on an earlier post. Either way would be great. n/m

10 reports/hour or 25 markers/hour
I deleted it through the (sm)
Control Panel.  Hope this helps.
Gone? Not so sure. Deleted? Definitely.
I deleted the message. nm
my post was deleted
all i did was tell the truth about her bad language in an email to me.  it was the truth and based on fact.  are we not allowed to post true events?
Why have all the posts been deleted that said they
didn't see anything wrong with this?
I know - my comment was deleted
.....I guess if you own the board you can delete anything you don't like being said about yourself.  So much for freedom of speech.
Were there some posts deleted here?
It's real confusing ... however, my 2 cents? There's no possible way you could reach 100K a year at 8 cpl. Anyone who says they do is fibbing, IMO, or else they never sleep or eat and just transcribe all hours of the day.

At 8 cpl, assuming we're talking the standard 65-char. line, I think you'd be doing quite well to reach $30K a year. JMO.
Deleted lines.
I do not count it if it is just a sentence or two. If it is say a whole note, or close to it, I do count it and send a note stating what I did.
This is a deleted website????
I had that problem and went in and deleted the ...
printer and then went back in and re-installed it and now it works. Good luck.
There were 2 or 3 other answers here that got deleted - sm
for some reason, they certainly were not offensive, so it is a bit weird. But what they said is NO! Not unless you work an awful lot (i.e. 7 days, probably 12-14 hour days). So yeah you could do it but you'd have no life, no husband either in the long run and no sanity.
