#StackBounty: #microsoft-word #pdf #fonts #adobe-acrobat How to enable non-English text copying from PDF file?

Bounty: 100

I converted a MS Doc file to a PDF file. If the file contains English then, one can copy text from the converted PDF file. But if the file contains language other than English, and someone tries to copy that non-English text from the converted PDF file, and paste it to a MS doc file, then the pasted text becomes gibberish.

What is the solution?

I tried with Adobe Acrobat and Foxit reader to convert Doc file to PDF file. Also when I save MS Doc file, I keep tick on the Embed fonts in the file in Save.

For example, I write the below line in Mangal font in MS Word

बिहार विधानसभा चुनाव में एक बार फिर एनडीए की सरकार बनती नजर आ रही है।

I convert the file using Foxit reader, when I copy the text from PDF file and paste it to search bar or MS Word, I get –

बहार वधानसभा चुनाव म एक बार फर एनडीए क सरकार बनती नजर आ रह है।

What is the remedy?

#StackBounty: #microsoft-word Words move from line to line as you change paragraph alignment

Bounty: 50

I noticed a strange behavior in Word, words move from line to line when changing the alignment of the paragraph, if the alignment to two sides it looks like this:

two sides

And if the alignment to the left it looks like that

left

You can see that a word went from line to line.
This only happens in Word 2013 and above, but not in Word 2010.

My question is there a way that this will not happen so that the words will always remain in the same line in alignment to both sides and also in alignment to the left?

#StackBounty: #microsoft-word #microsoft-word-2013 #mail-merge Is there an easier way to add multiple Mail Merge fields into separate t…

Bounty: 50

I have to create a relatively large Microsoft Word template file that will contains a couple of hundred Mail Merge fields. Some of these are duplicate fields but that isn’t too much of an issue.

I have an Access database that contains all the available merge fields, I have added this as the Recipient List and the “Insert Merge Field” list (in the “Mailings” tab) successfully shows the full list.

Each field has to go into a separate table cell.

The method I am currently using is as follows:

  1. Select the target cell
  2. Click the “Insert Merge Field” button (which shows a modal form with the list)
  3. Select the item I want and insert it (which can take a few seconds to scroll and find the item I want)
  4. Close the modal box (because I cannot select another cell with it still open)
  5. Repeat

This is to say the least very time consuming. It would be perfect if I didn’t have to close the “Insert Merge Field” each time and I could just select the new cell and insert the new value, but I cannot.

Is there some other method I could use to help speed up this process? Is there a way I can select the new cell without closing the “Insert Merge Field” box?

#StackBounty: #microsoft-word Searching Word built-in method to list the most repeated words in the document

Bounty: 50

I read Allen Wyatt’s website last updated Jan 18 2020, but he recommends downloading other programs.
Does Word have anything built-in?

A standalone program—one not run as a Word add-in—is TextSTAT. It can read several types of files, including Word documents. It produces a detailed listing with all sorts of statistical summaries. Best of all, TextSTAT is free at:

http://neon.niederlandistik.fu-berlin.de/en/textstat/

If you’d like to "jump under the hood" and create your own macro to get the desired results, consider the discussion at a previous WordTip, located here:

#StackBounty: #microsoft-word After I select a Multi-level List, why can't Word apply that List to subsequent paragraphs?

Bounty: 50

enter image description here

  1. The GIF above exhibits my snag better than the screenshots below. Anyhow, I created a Multi-level List but in Step 1, Word is wrongly exhibiting it as a Numbered List.

  2. Anyhow, I then hit Backspace on my keyboard to remove the numbering for B.

enter image description here

Clicking Multi-level List

  1. I then clicked “Current List” under Multi-level List.
  2. As you can doubtless see, the outcome doesn’t match the extant list. “2” oughtn’t be red and indented.

  3. I clicked “Continue Numbering”, but nothing changed! Why?

enter image description here

Clicking Numbering

  1. I then tried to click “recently Used Number Formats” under Numbering.
    enter image description here

  2. I repeated Step 5, but again nothing changed! Why?
