Winword: parts of the document with numbered, but other parts (Table of Contents, Summary) without numbering

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/11

Steps to have only the body parts of your Winword document Heading 1 numbered, but parts like Summary and Table of Contents without numbering.

Steps:

  1. Create a document with
    • some paragraphs of body text, intertwined with:
      • some paragraphs that should become numbered headings,
      • some paragraphs that should become non-numbered headings
      • room for a table of context
  2. Go to the “Styles” popup (keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S, or ribbon “Home” -> section “Styles” -> small button on the lower right of the ribbon section
  3. For each paragraph that should become a heading, apply style “Heading 1” (you can also use keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+1 for this)
  4. Modify the various heading levels so they become numbered: see [WayBack] How to create numbered headings or outline numbering in Word 2007 and Word 2010 | ShaunaKelly.com. I prefer the hierarchical numbered multilevel list without the numbers being indented for the body text, but with indented numbers in the Table of Contents, so lets go.
    1. Start with the stock multi-leveled list definition:
      1. Change from “None” to the multi-level one:
      2. Now create a new one based on it:
        1. “Define New List Style…”:
        2. Rename from “Style1” to “Heading
    2. This involves creating a new list style called “Headings”, based on the numbered list style you like
      • ).
    3. Since by default, these bind to all levels, your document styles “Heading 1”..”Heading 9″ are covered. If for one or more styles, you do not want numbering, see below how to fix that (I do that for a “Heading 1 – no-numbering” style used for the “Summary” heading, and for the “TOC Heading” style.
  5. Mark the “Summary” heading as a new style “Heading 1 – non-numbered”:
    1. Press Ctrl+Shift+S to get to the “Apply Styles” 
    2. Enter the new name “Heading 1 – non-numbered” and press the “New” button: 
    3. Press the “Modify” button 
    4. to view the current style
    5. Press “Format” ->     
    6. Change it from “None” to “None” and press “OK”
    7.  Observe the numbering is gone:
    8. Unlike the “Heading 1” style, the “Style for following paragraphs” is wrong: it needs to be
    9. Now we are done, so press the “OK” button:
    10. Then observe the first numbered “Heading 1” now has got the number “1” instead of the “Summary”:
  6. Insert a “Table of Contents”, for instance after the “Summary”
    1. You might think it will start with a heading “Table of Contents”:
    2. Im some localisations of office, it is prepended with a “1.” and becomes “1. Table of Contents”. If it does, then you have to change style “TOC Heading” and undo the numbering as done with “Heading 1 – non-numbering” by pressing Ctrl+Shift+S when you are in the “Table of Contents” heading:
    3. From there, press the “Modify” button and continue as done with “Heading 1 – non-numbering”:

Random, Quick Brown Fox and Lorem Ipsum – How to Add Filler Text in Microsoft Word Documents

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/07

Choices:

  • =lorem(...): Ramdom Lorem Ipsum text paragraphs.
    • The sentences are roughly between 0.25 and 1.0 document widths in length.
  • =rand(...): Random English help text like paragraphs.
    • The sentences are roughly between 0.5 and 1.5 document width in length.
  • =rand.old(...): “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” paragraphs (up until Word 2003, this was what rand(...) returned).
    • The sentences are always the same length.

(...) parameters:

  • (x,y): x paragraphs of y sentences of text
  • (y): y paragraphs of 3 sentences of text (lorem more towards 1, rand more towards 3)
  • (): depends on the function:
    • =lorem(): 5 paragraphs of 3 sentences of text
    • =rand(): 5 paragraphs of 3 sentences of text
    • =rand.old(): 3 paragraphs of 3 sentences of text

Note:

  • There is no way to specify x paragraphs of random number lines of text.
  • They need to have “Replace text as you type” enabled (see menu option “File” -> “Options” -> “Proofing” -> “Autocorrect Options”)
  • Word 2003 and lower only have =rand(...)

Based on:

For a random document demo, I usually do this:

  1. =lorem(100,1) to get 100 paragraphs of 1 line of text
  2. About every 10 paragraphs, I mark a paragraph with a relevant Heading style
  3. Inside the remaining text, I combine some paragraphs to get longer ones

Download Earlier Versions of Office: 2010/2013

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/18

Not sure how long these will stay valid, but apparently my nl_office_professional_plus_2010_with_sp1_x86_x64_dvd_731121.iso was damaged (I forgot to check the hash) but I could download a fresh one from [WayBackDownload Earlier Versions of Office.

If you cannot find it by product key (I also tried it with a Visio one: worked fine too), then you can use [WayBackOffice 2010 direct link, X16-32250.exe, X16-32213.exe which are archived here:

Completely Uninstall Skype For Business (aka Lync) – Skype Community

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/05

I don’t need Skype (aka Lync) on all my VMs, for enough reasons (obnoxiously getting in the way even when not configured, downloading updates even though not used, taking up space, etc).

Removing it through appwiz.cpl is more than just a single step. The reason is that Skype can be part of Office and – despite the updates being called Skype – can be listed as the Lync component in Office.

So the removal is as follows:

  1. Run appwiz.cpl
  2. Select the Microsoft Office version you have installed
  3. Right click, then choose Change
  4. Choose “Add or Remove features” then “Continue”
  5. Choose the dropdown left of “Microsoft Lync” or “Microsoft Office”, then click “Not Available” and click “Continue”
  6. Wait for the removal to proceed, then click “Close”
